Musculo-skeletal

Musculo - skeletal Courses, including Pre- & Post-Joint Operation Course

Musculo-skeletal atrophy and pain affects around one in six people in the U.K. Its effects lead to nearly a quarter of a million joint replacement operations each year. Contrary to commonly held views, and wholly realistic fears of people newly experiencing these conditions, exercise offers important opportunities of improving the situation for everybody with any level and form of musculo-skeletal condition. For the majority not needing or contemplating surgery, mobilising and strengthening muscularity and joints will reduce pain levels. For those contemplating or awaiting surgery, regular exercise before and after surgery will contribute to better clinical and rehabilitation experiences.

As with all our courses, our musculo-skeletal  (msk) services see clients developing knowledge and skills to increasingly influence their health and its on-going improvement. Activities will focus on strengthening pain-giving joints, whilst at the same time  progressively building their allround physical activities, strength, stamina, balance, coordination and self-confidence. They are suitable for anybody suffering msk problems, be they heavily restricted in their movements or mildly impacted.

 Our individual msk courses, at two levels, are adapted to respond to the needs of individual client groups.  

Our course msk – supported improvement is for people not able or confident in taking their full body weight during prolonged periods of activity or movement. The course informs clients about their general wellbeing, msk conditions and how to mitigate their effects, as well as how to improve their all round wellbeing. The course runs for twelve weeks with one session per week. Clients will notice significant improvements both to their musculo-skeletal condition and their all round wellbeing and mood during this time. This is likely to be a motivator for continuing to be more active. Our coaches will have much pleasure in guiding you to the most suitable options for you as an individual, given your interests, physical conditioning and other relevant personal factors, such as mutually supportive friendships.

The twelve msk – supported improvement sessions are over twelve weeks. After signing-up, your personal consultation with a coach will last approximately 25-30 minutes. The consultation costs £12, and you will confirm together that this course is best suited to your personal aims and current health level. The course costs £90 for the twelve sessions and gives access to all our members’ materials and services including previous sessions’ recordings, our health and wellbeing archive and social groups.To join our msk – supported improvement course please click here.

Our musculo-skeletal (msk) course for people able to take their own bodyweight – msk conditioning – also informs clients about their general wellbeing, msk conditions and how to mitigate their effects, and how to improve their all round wellbeing. Physical activity during the course is tailored to the group’s members’ needs, reflecting both their individual msk concerns and their current level of physical conditioning. The course runs for twelve weeks with one session per week. During this time clients will notice significant improvements both to their musculo-skeletal condition and their all round wellbeing and mood. This is likely to encourage clients to continue to progress their physical activities. There are a number of options depending upon your interests and your physical conditioning. Your coach will have much pleasure in discussing these options with you once the course is completed.

The twelve msk conditioning sessions are over twelve weeks. After signing-up, your personal consultation with a coach will last approximately 25-30 minutes. The consultation costs £12, and you will confirm together that the msk conditioning course best suits your personal aims and current health level. The course costs £90 for the twelve sessions and gives access to all our members’ materials and services including previous sessions’ recordings, our health and wellbeing archive and social groups.  To join the msk conditioning course please click here

 Our pre- and post-joint operation courses are to support clients during the time they are close to joint surgery and during  rehabilitation. The courses are linked to the other musculo-skeletal courses in that clients with surgery in the near future will  transition from their msk course to focus specifically on their forthcoming operation and later rehabilitation. The course is also open to non-msk course members wanting to prepare for up-coming joint surgery. The course supports clients during the time they are planning and waiting for surgery and during on-going rehabilitation after the operation, both during and after hospital-associated immediate rehabilitation. The three course elements can be structured around individual clients’ needs.

The pre-operation course runs for four weeks, with one session per week. To sign up click here

For the six weeks immediately post-operation we offer a support social group which is facilitated by one of our coaches. The group offers support and guidance during the immediate post-operation period. To join this group please click here

Six weeks after the operation clients can join our post-operation course. This, too, is a four session course over four weeks. To join this course please click here

The whole pre-& post-joint operation programme of courses lasts fourteen weeks. 

For each of our musculo-skeletal courses social contact with fellow group members offers new friendships, mutual encouragement and support, shared experiences, enjoyment and chat.
