Did you know that back pain is one of the leading causes of absenteeism from the workplace? Approximately 1 in 6 Australians will suffer back pain in a year. It may impact our ability to walk, sit, lay down, sleep, not to mention our ability to function optimally at work and at home.

Back Pain may be caused by insufficient strength in the spine due to impaired core strength, excess weight, poor posture, sitting for long periods of time, lack of physical activity, poor mobility, hereditary conditions or diseases, injury or inflammation due to a number of reasons including diet and stressors.

The OMC incorporates MedX equipment along with functional exercises to build strength, increase power, mobility, flexibility, agility, endurance, reduce pain and prevent further injury. This equipment has been known to help thousands of people reduce or eliminate their back pain whilst increasing function and quality of life. (Source http://www.medxonline.com/about.php)
