Do you feel persistent pain at work but not sure why?

The truth is, our bodies aren’t built to stay still for long periods.  The reason it hurts when you sit at a desk all day is not because your chair isn’t at the right height, your screen is in the wrong position, or because you have bad posture.  It hurts because your body is trying to tell you to get up and move before you damage it!

Modern life involves many activities which require us to put our bodies through this strain, such as desk jobs, long distance commuting. laptop use, gaming, etc.  The progression of technology has been a fantastic development from the evolution of man, one that has advanced many industries, but in contrast and as a consequence of computer and laptop use, the upright man is quickly regressing.

How can revolution rehabilitation help?

Our revolution rehab courses were designed to help people understand the importance of leading a more active lifestyle, how to move in the right ways to and then help individuals achieve and maintain this functional strength using simple, but effective strategies.

The courses will equip individuals with the skills and knowledge required to combat aches and pains, avoid them returning and recognise how to progress and regress their activity when necessary, ultimately promoting holistic health.

There is an abundance of contradictory advice as to what constitutes ‘correct’ diet and exercise with an emphasis on achieving an aesthetically attractive physique as an indication of ‘fitness’.  Danielle Pain, the founder of The Pain Clinic and its revolution rehab, has a passion for helping people to move properly, improve functional strength and be as pain-free as possible.  This is the best way to avoid injury and maintain health long-term.

We will take time to answer your questions, and provide you a tailored strategy to take control of your potential musculoskeletal health.


Interesting fact:

The average human head weighs 10-12 pounds, but angling your neck at 60 degrees – like when stooping to read a text – increases the pressure to 60 pounds! The aforementioned muscles of your neck, shoulders and upper back must support the equivalent of 6 times the weight of your head.  According to the National Library of Medicine, these stresses lead to early wear, tear, degeneration and possible surgeries.
We have many patients who feel so punished by the demands of sitting at a desk all day, that they are coming for treatment every week or two. This can become very expensive and we felt that an exercise led treatment group would be beneficial for these patients and others who are living with this discomfort.
So, here are the details:
Courses run once a week, for 12 consecutive weeks.  With an option of lunchtime or after work, to make it easy to fit in around work hours.
