Back in Action – a program to help you
What is the Back In Action Program?
Back pain is common and affects all aspects of your life.
Most back pain is from mechanical irritation of discs, joints or ligaments. Mobilization, exercise and education are key requirements to resolve mechanical back pain. Some back pain is from inflammatory arthritis with the most common being ankylosing spondylitis which requires medication to reduce inflammation along with mobilization and exercise to limit spinal stiffness
Research confirms that exercise and education are the key components to managing back pain. Needles and pills do not provide lasting results and surgery is the last resort. In our experience we find patients are concerned about the TIME & COST of attending for physical treatment of back pain or confused about which exercises will help.
Our solution for your chronic back pain …..
Back in Action is suitable for chronic conditions such as spinal stenosis, ankylosing spondylitis, arthritis and postural spinal pain.
Back in Action is a package of 5 physiotherapy sessions organized to give you some hands on help, education on activity modification and a customized exercise program selected from our structured spinal mobility and core stability programs. Our goal is to help you move well and manage you back pain independently.

“After two sprained ankles within twenty-four hours of one another, intensive physiotherapy got me off crutches and to an overnight snowshoe camp and European soccer tour within weeks.”
“My experience at PhysioPlus was extremely positive. 3 days after tearing my ACL playing soccer I had my first visit. I walked in on crutches and was wearing an immobilizer knee brace for stability. PhysioPlus was able to help me regain confidence to bear weight on my injured leg and I was able to walk out with the crutches in one hand and the knee brace in the other.
PhysioPlus was able to confirm from their assessment of my knee that I had, in fact, ruptured my ACL which had not yet been confirmed, being prior to an appointment with the orthopaedic surgeon or an MRI.
PhysioPlus had me work through a program pre-surgery to regain as much mobility and stability I could without having the ACL intact. After the reconstructive surgery was completed we worked through a program to continue to increase mobility and strength. Having access to the exercise room complete with equipment was extremely helpful. PhysioPlus was able to explain and demonstrate how to effectively work through the exercise routines.
Within one year of my surgery I have returned to running and have started some hiking. I would highly recommend Physio Plus to anyone requiring treatment. The atmosphere is calm and everyone is extremely friendly and caring.”
