Back Stability Clinic

The Back Stability Clinic has been established for ten years and is founded on cutting-edge random controlled research, which is now being substantiated around the world. This research supports our approach that the correct activation of the deep stability muscles of the trunk (Transversus abdominis and multifidus, in conjunction with the pelvic floor and the diaphragm) is key to the successful management of sub-acute and chronic mechanical low back pain in patients of all ages and ability.
