Gymball For Chronic Pain Recovery

gymball - 1Janice uses the gymball as a means to help people recover from the deconditioning of chronic pain. She has found it useful for chronic low back pain, stress incontinence, generalized weakness due to inactivity, and other conditions.

Gymballs, also called Swiss balls, are large, inflated balls that are most often used in 45 cm, 55 cm, 65 cm, or 75 cm sizes. They are used to sit on, lie on, lie over, or press against in order to get resistance to movement and improve muscle recruitment and strength.

Janice has been teaching least effort gymball classes for many years. She states: “As a physiotherapist, I have found this is a great method to help clients return to their pre-injury every day activities without the risk of continued overuse of muscles.” She has noticed improvement in general core muscle strength, balance, bladder control, weight loss, and other benefits in her past participants.

For those of you who are wanting a new way of improving your muscles while you have fun, call (902) 469-3214.

Janice keeps the classes small with only 6 participants per class so that she can give each participant the individual attention they need.
