  2. If your pain is confined to the back, goes no further than your hips and buttocks, you have no pins and needles or numbness and have no sudden changes in your bladder and bowel function then this set of exercises should help you.
  3. These exercises should be pushed into discomfort while performing them but should generally make you feel better and looser afterwards.
  4. If you get worsening symptoms or are unsure, then initially reduce the push into the discomfort and if this isn’t enough then stop altogether and consult your Physiotherapist

Online Physiotherapy

Put simply this is Physio done via either telephone or video over the internet. Skype and facetime are examples of this.

Contrary to popular belief online physiotherapy can be very effective and it can help the same injuries that face to face physio can help. I have helped many people with injuries such as disc prolapses, tennis elbow, neck pain and much more).
