You are here: Home POSTURE & BACK PAIN


We all know we should be looking after our posture – sitting and standing correctly – but do you really know how good your posture is? Do you sit and stand correctly? Do you suffer from back pain?

postural assessments

At motive8 North we offer postural assessments and advice about how to manage lower back pain to help alleviate any aches and pains.

Worryingly, 8/10 adults will experience back pain or related problems at some point in their working life – it’s likely that you’re one of these people as you are sitting reading this!

Do you have niggles, pains or tension that never seems to go away? Have you ever considered these aches and niggles maybe due to your posture? Correcting your posture through performing corrective exercises may help alleviate these aches and pains. 

Booking a postural assessment with our Level 4 Certified Trainer, Kate Halsall may help iron out those aches and pains and alleviate any back pain once and for all. ​

All of our Postural Assessments begin with an in-depth questionnaire to discover more about you and how certain lifestyle factors may affect your posture and/or any back pain you may be suffering from.

Our Postural Assessment package combines the standing assessment performed as per our 90 second assessment, in combination with a seated assessment and various range of motion and functional movement assessments.

Those people who spend a large amount of the day either sitting or standing; people looking to start or improve their physical activity levels; pregnant ladies; anyone concerned about their posture.

Programme Design for Low Back Pain Sufferers

Please note motive8 trainers are not trained doctors therefore if you have any concerns you should consult your GP immediately. We cannot diagnose why the pain is occurring, but we can put together a programme to help with the management of back pain

What is it?

We start with the static and movement assessments which are performed as part of our other packages. However, we also use movement based tests for low back pain suffers so that we can produce personalised and specific mobilisation, stretch and strengthening exercises which pertain to low back pain sufferers.

Who is it suitable for?

People who currently suffer with or have suffered with low back pain; people who are concerned that they may get low back pain; people who are interested in incorporating more stretch and core strengthening exercises into their training programmes.

How long does it last?

60 minutes
