A group of deep muscles attached to the spine (the multifidus) play a critical role in stabilising the spine for movement.
When these deep spinal muscles are healthy and strong, they activate in preparation for movement, stabilising the spine and protecting it from excessive range of motion.
The deep spinal muscles support the individual vertebra as they move during everyday activities such as bending forwards, sideways, backwards and rotating our body.
Research shows that people with back pain, particularly chronic pain, often have significant weakness in these muscles.
getback™ re-activates and strengthens your deep spinal muscles using rehabilitation devices that isolate and stimulate a response from these muscles.
The strength and flexibility of your deep spinal muscles is measured by getback devices during your Initial Consultation. Your customised treatment program is based on data from the Consultation and a questionnaire to understand which movements trigger your pain.
Treatment starts with a limited range of movement and light loading. getback™ devices are precisely designed to provide you with the right level of support for easy-to-handle loading. The technology ensures that your initial rehabilitation phase focuses on pain-free and highly targeted resistance.
Data on your strength, pain and range of movement is continually recorded by the devices for review with our Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists.
getback™ was developed by combining the latest medical research and clinical practice to create a programme specifically for the treatment of back or neck pain.
getback™ promotes back health by targeting and rebuilding the deep spinal muscles that are associated with back and neck pain.
Most importantly, our rehabilitation devices and technology platform continually measure and record the strength and flexibility of your spinal muscles.
Your results are compared with benchmarks from a worldwide database. You begin with a clear target to get back to normal strength and mobility and can track your progress to a defined finish line.
getback™ isolates and strengthens the deep spinal muscles that are associated with back or neck pain.
Patients can review their progress on-screen with data showing their strength and flexibility measures.
There is a clear finishing line – a typical getback treatment program lasts 6-12 weeks (12-24 treatments).
getback™ treatment is designed to re-condition the deep spinal muscles to promote co-ordination and stability in an active spine.
