Now down to business! The purpose of these ‘Relief Phase’ exercises and stretches is to get your body ready and able to start doing the all important ‘Correction and Strengthening’ exercises needed to compliment your care through ‘Stage 1’ and on to ‘Stage 2’.
‘Stage 2’ covers Supportive or Wellness Care and the main reason we want to get you to this stage is to help prevent you from regressing back to where you sought our care in the first place. This is explained in the introductory video on the Front Page. Once you are on our ‘Stage 2’ programme, should you get an occasional ache or pain, you will be perfectly placed for us to get you up and running without delay. If you are on our Platinum Care Programme this will also be at no extra cost to your basic monthly payment.
As you can see I have broken the relief care exercises into a couple of simple groups.
Stretches and Postural Exercises
Both of these should be done at least three times a day with the exception of the wall exercise which can be done as many times a day as you like. In fact the more the merrier!
So you can now get started and if you are currently seeing one of our spinal health care practitioners and have any queries or problems such as pain whilst doing an exercise then please give the Centre a call and your practitioner will help you through any issues you may have encountered. Remember, that if you do an exercise and it causes pain, due to the mild nature of these exercises, then I would suggest booking a consultation at your earliest convenience as there is obviously a problem that needs addressing.
As explained, it is imperative that all Centre members who are enrolled in the ‘New Patient Healthcare Class’ always attend the class and thus gain the maximum benefit from care.
