BACK in the Game
Approximately 10 - 15% of all young athletes suffer from lower back pain.
BACK in the Game is an eight-week, small group physiotherapy-based program designed to get youth athletes (ages 11-17) who experience back pain, back into sport and regular physical activity.
The primary focus is on motor control, spinal stability, mobility and regaining strength in the functional movements required for sport and activity. Fortius therapists and coaches utilize Pilates and movement principles to ensure whole body symmetry during these critical growing years.
Participants will also learn strategies for the self-management of their back pain, and will build a strong core to support them as they go forward with physical activities.
