Lido Spinal Program
Lido Spinal Clinic have introduced an innovative approach to spinal rehab and will work with you to retrain your spine. Your pain maybe caused by overloaded structures and soft tissues around your spine and pelvis. This overload will prevent your spine from working at it's optimal pain free best.
We have moved away from the concept that people have a 'bad back'. We are passionate about helping you to regain your spinal strength and mobility.
The Lido Spinal Program (LSP) uses your body weight as a resistance. This Spinal rehabilitation program has been designed with input from Swiss, German and American Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists to specifically improve the range of motion, flexibility and strength of your spine. All exercises are designed so that your spine can perform them pain free. Your individual programme will progressively build your spinal control , flexibilty and strength. We will challenge and improve poor spinal movement patterns. We will activate the important muscles, leading to less stress on the spine, less pain and decreased fear of movement.
