Osteoporosis

Back Care Pilates classroom

Being diagnosed with osteoporosis or osteopaenia at any age can be quite frightening.

It can also be hard to know where to start with exercise. You are told that certain exercises should be avoided, such as sit-ups, while we know that weight-bearing exercise pitched at the right level for you can help your bones to get stronger. There are also postural changes that can occur because of osteoporosis that can be addressed.

We have designed a pilates programme for people with low bony density or those who are keen to optimise their bone health.

This class runs in Ashford Community Centre Wednesdays at 12.30, 8 week course is €135 and lasts 1 hour. If you are interested please contact us at info@eastcoastphysio.ie or call 0404-49781.

I have suffered with lower back pain for the last 15 years. During that time I have spent many thousands of Euros on Physiotherapy and visits to various Chiropractic Clinics in Dublin and Wicklow. I was never totally pain free during that time so I decided after hearing their advertisement on East Coast Fm to give East Coast Physio in Ashford a try.

I had the opinion up to now that the old saying "if you once have a bad back you will always have one " was true but I now know that this is not the case, as having had only 5 sessions at East Coast Physio I am now pain free for the first time in 15 years. I would like to thank Catherine and recommend their Clinic to anyone suffering from pain ...it certainly worked for me.
