Exercise Videos

We have selected the exercises we most frequently advise our patients to do and turned them into short video clips. We have been mindful that these exercises should require little equipment and could be performed in a limited space.

Our aim is to provide you with a handy visual reference to check you are performing your exercises safely and effectively… and to encourage you to persist in performing them regularly.

Whether you initially came to us for treatment of lower back pain, a knee injury or a stiff neck, sustained practice of these exercises will not only help to address your initial symptoms, but also reduce the chances of a recurrence in the future, and improve your general posture, gait and overall health as well.

Enjoy your exercises, and do contact us with any additional questions regarding them, or comments you may have about the exercise library.
