• Professional Personal Training

    Personal Training Richmond & Mitcham

    At Better Backs, we offer personal training from both our chiropractic clinics in Mitcham and Richmond. Qualified, professional personal trainer Christine Prescott can work with you to create a personalised training plan that is tailored to your health and fitness goals. All training programs and fitness classes are carefully designed to take into account any pre-existing or current injuries, medical conditions, postural issues or neck pain or back pain

    If you require personal training as part of rehabilitation from an injury, condition or procedure, Christine can work with your chiropractor to create a safe and effective rehab training program to improve strength and flexibility in the affected areas.   

    Before starting any training, Christine will provide a thorough assessment in consultation with your chiropractor to determine your fitness levels and identify any particular areas of concern, while working to create the best treatment plan.  

    While we prefer to provide face-to-face personal training, especially for cases of rehabilitation or injury management, Christine can also provide online training. 

    Our chiropractic team may recommend personal training as part of a broader treatment program that may include chiro treatments, remedial massage, dry needling, orthotics or low back pain treatments.
