Bounce Back

Bounce Back is a program of spinal stability classes, which focuses on improving spinal strength, balance and co-ordination with the aim of restoring clients to their pre-injury status.

The program achieves this by re-educating the brain on how to correctly elicit contractions of the pelvic floor, transverses abdominus, multifidus and gluteals in the appropriate sequence, progressing from non-weight bearing positions to function activity such as squatting, bending and lunging. The end result of correct recruitment patterning is a stronger more stable core.

These classes are recognised by WorkCover and based on the latest research on spine stability. The program meets the work related activity program standards used to manage soft tissue injuries. It is designed specifically to achieve the level of function required for a person to return to work or pursue activities of daily living.

This program is very attractive to insurance companies due to the cost effectiveness and individual involvement of clients.

The program consists of a series of 8 weekly, one hour exercise classes with a maximum of 8 participants per class to ensure appropriate learning and adequate supervision.

The program provides a positive progression from “hands on” therapy to “return to function.”

With the expansion of pilates and other core stability type classes, there was a real need for the physiotherapy profession to develop safe, effective, structured and progressive exercises.

  • The format and content of the Bounce Back program is standardised nationally.

There are introductory, intermediate and advanced classes, focusing on either lumbar spine or cervical spine. Clients generally commence at the introductory level of classes and progress to the intermediate level.

For most clients, the intermediate level will provide them with sufficient stability and strength to manage their daily living and work activities. For those with more physically challenging occupations, it may be necessary for them to progress to the advanced level the following week.

To encourage compliance, a patient handout of the exercises from each session becomes the home program for the following week.

  • Clients are advised to practice the exercises at home 3 x per week.
