Spine Pain/Lower Back Pain/Thoracic Pain – Physiotherapy in Auckland Can Help You

Do you suffer from a sore achy lower back? Annoyed that your spine is sore in the morning, and takes a while to get moving. Maybe you have some pain referral that is problematic and making your spine weaker. Frustrated at not being able to lift the grandchildren, play golf or other sports, or fear-full of doing what you want to do each and every day?

These are some of the frustrations our clients used to comment on. At Bodyreform, Physio’s in Ponsonby and Grey Lynn are experts at identifying the cause of your spine pain and starting you off on a rehabilitation programme individual for you. It has been researched and proven that spine care is most effective when married with active rehabilitation. This spine rehabilitation needs to commence within the first week of your back injury, and it should not bring you any pain or discomfort.

At Bodyreform we look at your spine and which movements you should practice to help your spine, and which movements will make your spine worse. Core abdominals are assessed. These are the abdominals that wrap around your spine like a corset. Once activated correctly, they are pivotal at providing the inner strength your spine needs to cope with our active busy lives.

Our clinic is small and personal. We planned it this way! It is best for you our client to rehabilitate in a small and quiet, calming environment. We also use specialised pilates rehabilitation equipment to assist your rehabilitation, plus our hands on skills to assess and feel your spine. We also use our skilled physiotherapy manual therapy techniques to facilitate your recovery.

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.
