Total Back Care

Welcome back Jess!

Posted by ANGELA HARRISON in Back Pain, Consultations, Ergonomics, Family Business, Total Back Care on Wednesday 3 April 2019

Our popular Ergonomist, Mrs Jessica Roberts, has returned from Maternity Leave & is taking appointments at The Studio on Mondays, Tuesdays & Thursdays. She’ll be clients main point of contact at The Studio, as Dr Rob Harrison’s services are increasingly in demand for in-house consultations from a far wider geographical area.

We’d like to express immense gratitude to our daughters, Amy & Eloise, who worked incredibly hard to help cover Jess’s leave – through some of our busiest ever months!

Congratulations Jess & welcome back to our team!

Back for Business!

Posted by ANGELA HARRISON in Back Pain, Consultations, Ergonomics, Family Business, Total Back Care on Friday 11 January 2019

Our intrepid team are back from Costa Rica & The Studio is open for business 🙂

We loved our time on the Zip Wires, Superman Lines & Tarzan Swing over the beautiful Monteverde Cloud Forest & on the Hanging Bridges of the Arenal Volcano region.   The wildlife was superb & the sun shone for a few days of much needed R&R along the Pacific Ocean.

Suitably refreshed from a very busy Autumn period, we look forward to the challenges of 2019 with renewed vigour!

Hope to catch up with all of our lovely Clients soon!

 

 

MSc Psychology!

A proud day for the Total Back Care team with Amy Harrison graduating with a Masters Degree in Psychology. Rapidly catching up with Dad, Dr Rob Harrison, who couldn’t be any prouder!

It’s great to have an extra dimension to our range of skills, with particular empathy to other students who are increasingly being referred to us from SFE Assessment Centres.  Congratulations Amy!!

 

34 Sleeps ’til Christmas!!

34 Sleeps ‘til Christmas!!

While some may say it’s too early for Christmas decorations and wrapping presents, here at the Total Back Care Centre, we understand you can never start the Christmas count down too early! The Christmas period is certainly one filled with not only festivities and excitement but also the undeniable stress of racing around the shops, organising the in-laws, and producing a festive feast to feed the masses. Thus, a good night’s sleep, which serves as a blissful escape from the mayhem of Christmas, is of upmost importance during this time. Fear not, the Total Back Care Centre is here to help- pillows to the rescue!  With a range of specialist ergonomic pillows, book an appointment with Dr Rob Harrison at our Studio, to determine which pillow is best suited to ensure your sleeping alignment and get that good nights’ sleep!!

 

Jess’s Maternity Leave Cover.

Posted by ANGELA HARRISON in Consultations, Ergonomics, Family Business, Total Back Care on Friday 7 September 2018

Our popular Ergonomic Consultant, Jessica, goes on Maternity Leave from 10th Sept & we’ll miss her exuberance & meticulous organisational skills at The Studio!  She’ll be back with us in March 2019 & Dr Rob Harrison will cover her consultations until then.

We’re delighted to welcome Amy to our team, who will be covering Jess’s client liaison & administration roles until November, when sister Elly will be taking over the reins.  Amy has a BSc(Hons) Neuroscience & recently completed a Masters Degree in Psychology.  She’ll be with us to gain valuable business experience before travelling to Australia for some well earned time out!

Our wanderlust Director Angela will be grounded after upcoming travels to Singapore, Malaysia & Indonesia to cover the remainder of Jess’s leave.

We send heaps of good wishes to Jess for her maternity leave – and very much look forward to her return to The Studio!

New Osteopathy Clinic!

Posted by ANGELA HARRISON in Back Pain, Consultations, Total Back Care on Tuesday 7 August 2018

Dr Rob Harrison was delighted to attend the grand opening of Ebrook Osteopathy & Sports Clinic’s new home at 3 Coleshill Street in Sutton Coldfield town centre.  He even found a new friend?!

A lovely, friendly practise offering a wide range of osteopathy & sports injury/development services, now in a very swanky new building!

We wish Emily & her team every success in their new venture.

Another degree!

Posted by ANGELA HARRISON in Back Pain, Consultations, Ergonomics, Family Business, Total Back Care on

A very proud day for our family firm as youngest daughter Elly graduated with First Class Honours in Geography from the University of Cambridge!

She’s the fourth member of the family to graduate & did so in style during a wonderful ceremony at Senate House, Cambridge.

The very next day she flew to Geneva to take up her internship at the World Health Organisation!

Gap year travel will follow after a stint working at Total Back Care to help cover Jess’s maternity leave.

We very much look forward to both Elly & older sister Amy (who’s just completed her Masters Degree) bringing some third generation energy into the business – watch out Rob!

 

Keep Supported When Travelling

Posted by Jessica Roberts in Back Pain, Consultations, Ergonomics, Total Back Care on Tuesday 17 July 2018

With the school/summer holidays around the corner, most of you may be gearing up to go on a summer holiday. Why not book in a consultation for your car? As many of us may be travelling long distances to get to airports or holiday destinations, it is important that you do not start the holiday off with back pain!

We do additional portable back supports (e.g. our Rest a Back) that can be used for aeroplanes and trains, and any other sort of seating that you may use on holiday. Selection of our products include:

The Backfriend Back is a very versatile back support that can be used on multiple backrest seating arrangements. This adds support to the lumbar region, thereby opening your posture and preventing ‘slumping’.

A Slimline wedge will provide a pelvic tilt ensuring the hips are higher than the knees, and thus taking strain away from the lower back. This wedge is ideal in the car where seats are often bucketed (for safety reasons) with the knees a lot higher than the hips. Therefore, the seat angle can be reduced.  Also, where head room is minimal if the roofing height is lower down, or the person is tall. The wedge includes a fixing strap and is also available with a discrete coccyx cut out.

As many are taking Staycations this year, it is important to remember your neck support pillow to ensure a supportive and good night’s sleep. Often hotels/villas provide poor quality pillows. These can be freely trialled at our Centre under the expert guidance of Jessica or Rob.

Book in for an appointment on 0121 454 3900.

 

Pilates in the Mountains!

Posted by ANGELA HARRISON in Back Pain, Consultations, Ergonomics, Family Business, Total Back Care on Friday 1 June 2018

Our intrepid Directors practise what they preach – an active healthy lifestyle & regular pilates can help to prevent many back & neck problems.  Even better when coupled with a sit-stand desk & active ergonomic seating in the workplace!

And yes, the Guinness tasted good too!
