Back Pain / Spine Care / Spine Rehabilitation

Suffering from back pain?  Can’t find the magic solution to manage or eliminate your back pain?

Bodyreform assess and treat back pain daily.  The most effective management is obtaining the correct diagnosis.  Once estabilised through x-rays, MRI, assessment and possible referral to Sports Physicians and Spinal Surgeons.

Once we know exactly what is going on…whether it be disc disease, disc prolapse, disc protrustion, slipped disc, spondylithesis, spondylosis, pars defect, osteo arthritis and the like, Bodyreform will rehabilitate  you back to health.

It is essential to also use your deep abdominals correctly.  We have been back to University to learn all about Ultra-sound Imaging which shows you your abdominals in ‘real time’.  Pivotal in changing muscle recuritment, this machine will confirm for you in seconds if you are doing your home exercises correctly or over working your stomach.

Call Bodyreform on 361 6415 to book your initial assessment and finally get rid of your back pain for good!


After my second baby was born, my body was a wreck, with constant back and pelvic pain that made it hard to cope with the physical demands of being a mother. Regular physio – and lots of care, support and encouragement – from Sarah has made a vast difference. I’m far stronger and very nearly pain-free – better than I was before I had children.

I was 44 when I first went to Sarah with a background of sports injuries related to running. I have previously had several years of treatment from physiotherapists but continued to suffer from injuries as my running distances increased. Since being treated by Sarah I have been able to complete both a half marathon and my first full marathon – both in times I was delighted with. I am in no doubt that without her ongoing care I would not have been able to achieve my marathon goal.

As a New Zealand age group representative duathlete, I was experiencing regular and ongoing muscular problems in both lower legs. Since attending Sarah’s one-on-one Pilates sessions, my leg problems have completely disappeared. Sarah’s innovative ideas and caring communication have made what started out as a trying ordeal into a weekly Pilates session that I now look forward to.

I have been coming to Bodyreform for about 8 years after years of on / off treatment for a lower back problem which resulted in sciatic pain. Not only did they remove the pain, but they also taught me how to support and manage the problem through strengthening my inner core muscles and correcting my posture. Body Reform’s Physios worked hard on my rehabilitation and they maintain a strong relationship / friendship with me that ensures I can look forward to aging gracefully and in a pain free fashion.
