Injury & Rehab

Back Rehab


Recover from injury and get back out there with the help of our experienced injury and rehabilitation team.

Improving strength and how well we move our bodies can help reduce pain and improve day to day function and ultimately our quality of life. When things like our back or knee get sore, our bodies try to help us by sending a pain signal to the brain.
We then tend to alter how we behave or move and often avoid certain activities that our brain feels might be a problem for us. Unfortunately, when it comes to strength, if you don’t use it you lose it!

Get your Momentum back

Every injury is different. To help you reach your goals quickly and safely, we’ll assess you and provide a customised programme to restore your body’s movement and function. By the time you leave your initial assessment you will have a clear understanding of what you need to do, and how long it will take.

Return to fitness

Your injury rehabilitation programme is overseen and reassessed on a regular basis to make sure it is continuing to assist your recovery. As you continue your return to fitness, we’ll make changes to the programme to refocus and refine it to ensure you reach your goals.

Enhance your existing training

Pilates can enhance your existing strength and conditioning training by encouraging conscious, efficient movements that increase your core strength and flexibility.

Enjoy the benfits

Pilates comes with many other benefits too, such as improved balance, co-ordination, and circulation. You may also see an increase in energy levels, stamina, and better posture.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is rehab?

    Sports rehabilitation is a branch of medicine that deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of injuries sustained during physical activity. It also helps people to regain their physical strength and abilities after an injury.

  • Why do I need rehab?

    To regain strength and flexibility more quickly, so you can get back to your normal activity level sooner. Engaging in a rehabilitation program after sustaining a sports injury can help to reduce your risk of re-injury.

  • What will happen at my appointment?

    When you begin rehabilitation, your therapist will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine the best course of treatment for your specific injury. Your therapist will assess you in the gym, this isn’t as scary as it sounds, we mainly look at how you move and gives us a place to start. From these baseline assessments we will work with you to plan goals and an appropriate graded exercise programme to get you back to your activity.

  • Who is it for?

    Sports rehabilitation isn’t just for athletes; anyone who has sustained a sports injury can benefit from this type of care. Whether you’re a weekend warrior or a professional athlete, rehabilitation can help you heal and get back to your normal activities.

  • How long will I need for rehab?

    Depending on your injury and your assessment, your therapist will help set different goals to achieve to help guide and progress your rehab. Using this method allows you and your therapist to have confidence in that you have reached a certain level of strength and other measures before progressing to the next stage until your end goal is met, rather than a fixed time frame.

Having injured my right knee a few years back I found that, due to over-compensating, I was suffering pain in my 'good' knee. Following an initial consultation with Jack I began the 6 week back and knee course. Well, 4 weeks in and I can honestly feel a massive difference not only in the degree of movement/lack of pain but in my confidence to participate in various classes including indoor cycling and power pump. Truly professional service and the degree of expertise is spot on. If you have a problem, go visit Jack!


The momentum team are incredibly caring, passionate and friendly. They have been the cornerstone to helping me improve my fitness and well-being for many years via expert strength & conditioning, physio and rehab services.


I just wanted to say thanks for the work you have done with me over the past few months. Over the years I have seen many health professionals, for various ‘body issues’. Results, and satisfaction have varied massively. I’d like you to know that under your guidance, my satisfaction, and results have exceeded all expectations I had. You have convinced me, through proven results, to adjust the way I will look after my body, moving into my 50’s !! I have already, and will continue to recommend you and your services to all I know. Rest assured, if I have any further issues, you are top of my list. Anyway, thanks again.
