How does getback treat sports injuries?

While medication and surgery is used to treat back injuries in some cases, these treatments often come with side effects and risks.

getback™ physiotherapy and movement-based treatment offers a safe and effective alternative to recover from sports-related back injuries.

When pain from an injury inhibits spinal muscle function for a period of time, the size and structure of the muscles change.

Even when pain subsides, you are left with muscle weakness which can cause your pain to re-occur, or other injuries to develop.

Your initial getback physiotherapy consultation is designed to assess whether movement-based therapy should form part of your treatment plan.

getback™ treatment precisely targets any weakened or injured spinal muscles to rebuild their strength and co-ordination with the superficial back muscles.

The strength and range of motion of your spinal muscles is measured during your initial physiotherapy consultation.

Your customised treatment plan is based on this data and an assessment to understand which movements trigger your pain.

Safe and supported movement-based therapy

When pain and loss of strength is involved, it’s vital to start movement-based treatment – the re-conditioning cycle – in a safe and supported way.

getback™ treatment is enhanced by rehabilitation devices that precisely control load and range of motion for each exercise in your customised plan, based on your recorded strength data.

The most important factor is the device’s ability to provide resistance that matches muscle capacity as it moves through its full range of movement. This changing and accommodating resistance ensures the exercise is not overly stressing the muscle at various points of weakness and ensures a safe overload throughout the movement.

You begin treatment with a measurable target to get back to normative values of strength and mobility in your spinal muscles and can track your progress to a defined finish line.

How long will it take to feel results?

Patients are able to track their improvement in their data with our Physiotherapists.

After your initial physiotherapy consultation, a customised plan of between 12 and 24 treatments is designed for you. 

getback™ recommends two treatments of approximately 30 minutes per week.

Most patients feel an improvement in their strength and range of movement within four weeks. Patients are able to track their improvement in regular reviews of their data with our Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists.

How do getback devices enhance your treatment?

Six rehabilitation devices target specific stabilising muscles of the spine.

Each device is connected to a central database, which records every treatment and accurately tracks your progress.

Every movement is measured and shown on screen, giving you instant feedback.

Your strength and movement data is recorded for continual review.
