How we treat back pain

getback uses medically-registered rehabilitation devices to safely increase the strength and flexibility of the deep spinal muscles that stabilise and support the spine. The devices are designed by Biomechanists and Exercise Physiologists to precisely target and rebuild the deep spinal muscles.

Spinal health you can see

getback™ devices are designed to safely control loading and guide every movement during your tailored back treatment. The devices provide continual feedback to ensure you’re exercising within the prescribed safe range, and measure your strength and flexibility for review with our Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists.
