Providing assessment & individual exercise rehabilitation classes


"Learn how to move again with stability and ease"

1. Lumbo-Pelvic Stability retraining classes

2. Thoracic & scapula Stability retraining classes

About our classes

The exercise rehabilitation classes at Sydney Spine & Pelvis Centre combine the latest scientific knowledge about muscle re-education with our clinical experience in rehabilitation for people who have neck, shoulder and thoracic issues, and who want to regain movement and stability safely.

1. Lumbo-Pelvic Stability retraining classes

Research has shown that specific muscles work to keep you stable as you sit, walk, stand and exercise. The deepest layer of muscles in you abdominal wall work together with deep back muscles (pictured below) and your pelvic floor to support the joints in your back and pelvis during every movement that you make. Unfortunately these muscles can stop working properly due to pain, injury, or as a result of poor posture and work habits.  The way your body copes with this may actually cause more pain, stiffness, aching, and difficulty moving.

Our small group (maximum 5 people) Level 1 Lumbo-pelvic & core stability exercise classes are designed to reinforce your awareness of strengthening and using your stabilising muscles correctly so that they support your back/pelvis in daily functions and then progress to show you how to safely increase your activity and endurance. The small group classes allow us to assist your recovery toward normal function or back to your sport at a speed that suits your needs.  

The classes are designed as a block of 5 one hour classes. Each participant is asked to commit to all classes because the information given and exercises that are taught progress from week to week.

 At the end of the 10 weeks, you may be strong enough to continue with a home exercise program, or you may wish to progress to our Level 2 class which focuses on building core strength and endurance of your core muscle activity with gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, and back muscles.

How to book into a class

Before starting a level 1 class you will need to be assessed by a physiotherapist to ensure the classes will suit you. If you are already attending Sydney Spine & Pelvis Centre for physiotherapy, please discuss the option of progressing into a class with you physiotherapist. If you are new to our service, please call our administrative staff between 8am-5.30pm Monday to Friday to organise your assessment prior to booking into the classes.

Cost and payment of classes

$500 for Level 1 for a 10 week block and $500 for Lv 1.5/2 for a 10 week block of classes, payable in advance at the Drummoyne Practice.  Health fund cover will usually cover part of this cost under physiotherapy. If you are unable to attend one of your classes there will unfortunately not be a refund for the missed session, so please select the dates carefully before booking. However, you can make up one class at another time during the term, subject to availability.
