Singleton Physiotherapy has had the GetBack Devices for almost 2 years now, and in that time we have taken nearly 100 people through the program. Our studies show that those who complete the 6-12 week program demonstrate improvements with their strength, function, and pain levels. We have many happy customers that have reported to get their life back following the program and we thought we would introduce you to some of our clients who also believe that the GetBack program works!
Michael was an operator in the mines and drove trucks for hours at a time. After a major injury almost 15 years ago, the lower back pain started to return. It interrupted his sleeping, stopped him from working, but worst of all he prevented him from playing golf! He had tried physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, gym based exercises, but nothing was providing permanent relief. The GetBack program was his last resort.
Michael’s first session with the devices was an initial assessment where he rated his lower back pain 5/10 and his lower back strength was almost 90% BELOW average for his age, weight, height, & gender. Michael wasn’t surprised by the results as he knew that it would be weak as he hasn’t been able to do any exercise for a long time because of the consistent lower back pain.
Michael’s program started very light and gradually progressed each week. Michael attended 2 x sessions every week for over 12 weeks. His pain took some time to drop but around the 6 week mark his pain rating dropped down from 5/10 to 2/10.
At his final assessment Michael reported his pain to be 1/10, the first time he can remember it being this low in a long time. His final assessment results showed a strength improvement of 70%. More importantly, Michael is now back to playing golf several time a week, pain free!
Michael is now maintaining this strength by performing 2-3 exercises a few times a week.
