Movement and exercise therapy

“Movement is a medicine for creating change in a person’s physical, mental and emotional state” – Irene Carr

If movement is a medicine then the prescription and dose should be specific to that individual.

Spine

At the Maxwell Clinic we combine our treatment with movements and exercises to help you recover from back pain.

One of the best things you can do to prevent back pain is maintain a healthy spine.

Doing things that move you regularly keeps your muscles and joints strong, relaxed, flexible and improves feelings of tension, stiffness and pain.
