Exercise is continually being supported by research evidence as a key component both treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal conditions. Movement coaching, development of progressive exercise programs tailored to your needs coupled with advice for everyday activities and work habits are invaluable for long term management. This is especially important for return to work/sport, post-operative rehabilitation, whiplash associated disorders and overuse injuries such as tendinopathy’s, stress fractures etc.
