"I exercise a least once a day and regularly participate in running races and triathlons. The excellent service that Hedd provides has enabled me to avoid serious injury for several years. The expert advice which he offers give me the confidence to exercise regularly, this has been central to a lasting sense of physical and mental well-being. I couldn’t recommend the service he provides highly enough”​ Mark, Aberystwyth

One of the best things for back pain (and general health of course) is regular exercise.

One of the first things to be affected by having a troublesome back is...exercise!

There's so much confusing advice out there about how to avoid back injuries when exercising and what might be the best exercise to do when you have pain.  Some information out there is very unhelpful and sometimes scary.

We can assess:

  • What has led you to be struggling with back pain

  • What have you been trying to help your recovery - and what hasn't worked!

  • What you believe is causing your pain

  • What is motivating you to get back to exercise - fitness, mental well-being, social, appearance?

By learning the two key phases in recovery (calm it down before buidling it up) we can gradually get you moving again, feeling strong and back to what you love.

All aspects of your recovery will be addressed and all assessments include a consideration as to whether you may be in need of medical attention for the problem that you are experiencing.  This is very rare, but you will benefit from the peace of mind of knowing that you have a problem that can be overcome with Pain Recovery Coaching.

Introductory Chat

So that we can get an idea of where you are with your problem and what goals you would like to work towards we start with a free chat with Hedd.  This can be done over the phone, by Skype or Teams.

After this we will forward you some online forms to fill in which will give Hedd a better idea of which type of care package may be most suitable for you.

Full Consultation

The first full appointment lasts around 60 minutes during which you and Hedd will discuss how your pain developed, what you believe is the cause of the problem and how it is affecting you daily.

A few movement assessments should help create an idea of what is affecting the way your back is working and then recommendations will be made about what you can change to begin overcoming the problem.  This appointment is £75.

Follow Up

Your response to the recommendations will be followed up within the first week.  This session lasts 30 minutes.  If the advice has been easy to follow and you have already noticed a difference then a further follow up may be two or three weeks later.  In cases where the problem fluctuates it may be that we schedule weekly sessions until there is a change.  These follow ups are £45.

Each case is considered individually, so it may be hard to give a truly accurate estimate of exactly how many sessions are needed, but each session will be geared to developing your knowledge, understanding and confidence.
