Access To Lockdown Livestreams
During the summer of 2020 we recorded 150 Live videos between 30 and 60 minutes as a free-to-join service to help people during the lockdowns.
We covered back pain, sciatica, spine surgery, disc rehab, pelvic floor and more. All of these videos go into detail on these topics. Every one of these Live videos had a Q&A section at the end for live viewers to get more specific guidance.
Seeing as they’ve been such a popular resource for both free and premium members alike, we’ve collated them by category on a special page which you can access below. We hope you also find benefit in them, be it better understanding your condition, your spine, or the pathway to recovery.
