Yoga and Relaxing ActivitiesStaying mobile and pain-free is always going to be difficult if you don’t also try to exercise. As well as regular check-ups as recommended by your clinician, make sure that you spend a little time each day doing some gentle exercise.

Not sure what to try? We will advise you what kinds of exercises would be helpful for you, recommending an exercise that won’t overstrain your healing body. We have a wide range of educational leaflets at the clinic and exercise items such as physio band, wobble board, Sitfit, press ball, gym ball and Pediroller.

Client testimonial
I have suffered from spells of chronic and acute back pains for over 20 years without knowing the cause. Dr Patel told me that I have structural scoliosis and disc degeneration. X-rays taken at the clinic confirmed Dr Patel’s examination. I am and can walk 4-5 miles a week with my husband. I have learnt a lot about my posture and exercises, and occasionally get a stiff back after gardening, but no pains.

Good Posture

Good Posture and BalanceYour back should have three natural curves, at your neck, middle back and lower back. Your ears, shoulders and hips should all be in a straight line at all times, with that line continuing to your knees and ankles if you are standing up.

Bad posture can multiply the weight your joints are carrying, and increasing this strain increases the risk of pain and injury. We can teach you how to maintain good posture, especially important if you spend most of your time sitting or lifting heavy objects.

Client testimonial
I am very grateful for the excellent treatment given to me during these past 4 years and I have chosen to continue on periodic check-ups. After a terrible accident, I twisted my spine and developed a curvature to my spine called ‘scoliosis’, which has now been straightened. I cannot praise the team enough and thoroughly recommend it to friends. My very big thank you to you all.
Mrs P. J. Wells
