Back4Good Practitioner ®

lowbackpainFor the Prevention and Management of Low Back Pain

I’ve been a regular client of Claire’s for some time, using Pilates to keep my ongoing back problem under control. I was delighted when Claire set up the Back4Good programme. The one to one sessions have been invaluable, helping me to gain a much deeper understanding of how to look after my back. The personalised exercise programme has really helped to control my pain and increase my strength and range of movement. Claire has a real desire to help her clients and is so supportive. I can’t recommend Claire highly enough, whether as a Pilates teacher or as an expert in back care and she does it all with with a smile and a sense of humour!

More than 80% of the adult population suffer from low back pain at some time in their life. It is one of the most common reasons why people take time off work, and may be distressing and frustrating as quality of life often suffers.
Yet gentle, effective exercise, delivered by a properly trained exercise professional, can often help with the prevention and management of low back pain. This was underlined by the publication by NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) in 2009 of medical guidelines recommending that people with persistent non-specific low back pain should be encouraged to stay physically active and exercise. GPs and medical practitioners are encouraged to refer patients, where appropriate, to properly qualified exercise professionals.

Back4Good® Practitioners are exercise specialists who are trained to help people with non-specific low back pain. Practitioners are already experienced Body Control Pilates teachers, having been certified by Europe’s foremost Pilates organisation. They have additionally undertaken extensive training exclusively related to low back pain to become a Back4Good® Practitioner

All Back4Good® Practitioners are registered as a ‘BackCare Professional’ with BackCare, the charity for healthier backs.
