Back pain can have an major impact on things that you like to do in life . In most cases back pain will improve in a few weeks or months, although some people experience long-term pain or pain that keeps coming back.
Back pain can be triggered by bad posture while sitting or standing, bending awkwardly, or lifting incorrectly. If you're worried about your back or your pain hasn't improved, it's a good idea to visit your GP.
Your GP may recommend manual therapy – such as physiotherapy, chiropractic, osteopathy. He may recommend acupuncture or counselling – such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). For sure, one of the most important things you can do is STRENGTHEN your back, whether its just to maintain or improve posture or even pre or post operation exercise, at Axis we can help.
No matter what the problem is, neck, shoulders, elbows or hips, we can help you feel better.

Rehabilitation, the way it should be
Although breaking a bone isn’t rare, fractures are still a serious medical condition. A bone may break due to high-force impact or stress, or it may break from an otherwise trivial injury worsened by medical conditions that have weakened the bones. Fractures are either considered closed, when the skin stays intact, or compound (sometimes called open), when the bone is exposed. There are three different types of fractures:
Type I is a “nondisplaced” fracture, where the bone has a break but is still in normal position.
Type II is a fracture where a fragment of bone has shifted.
Type III is the most serious type of fracture because there are multiple breaks of the bone.
The first two fractures usually are treated without surgery, but Type III generally requires surgery. All fractures require treatment—for both proper bone healing and rehabilitation. Proper care is required to regain full use and range of motion. At Axis we use many techniques using body weight or resistance machines to help you regain lost strength from surgery or a simple strain or sprain.

Sudden pain in one of the knees is usually a sign of overuse or injuring the knee. In many cases, you don't need to see your GP.
The knee joint is particularly vulnerable to damage and pain because it takes the full weight of your body and any extra force when you run or jump. You're more likely to experience knee pain as you get older, overweight or do lots of sports. Some sports that involve a lot of turning, such as football, netball and skiing, carry a particularly high risk of knee injuries.
Knee replacement surgery (arthroplasty) is a operation that involves replacing a damaged, worn or diseased knee with an artificial joint.
A replacement knee usually lasts 20 years, especially if the new knee is cared for properly and not put under too much strain.
At Axis we can give you pre and post operative care. Over the years we have helped many clients strengthen the muscles, ready for surgery, then manage the healing process with exercises that will improve the range of the knee allowing full recovery and regain your strength levels.
