Real Time Ultrasound (RTUS) Biofeedback

Our Physios are trained to assess and retrain Transversus Abdominus using RTUS.  Transversus has been shown to be inhibited following back and pelvic pain.  Retraining the deep core stabilisers, especially Transversus, has been shown to reduce back pain and prevent recurrences of back pain.  We also retrain the deep stabilising muscles of the hip – iliacus, deep gluteus medius and minimus, and obturator externus – using the protocols developed by hip expert, Alison Grimaldi.  We have found clients with lumbopelvic and hip problems benefit from early deep activation training and are then able to progress to classes involving Pilates and Functional Strength Training with greater stability and awareness.
