We want you to see lasting results. Our team members will assess a variety of movement patterns and postures while empowering you with education and exercises so that you can reduce the risk of re-injury and prevent new injuries from occurring.

We understand that the human body is incredibly interconnected. We use a variety of technology and techniques to detect and treat not only the underlying cause of your problem but also other areas of your body that might be contributing to the problem.

Spiral Stabilizaiton

Spiral Stabilization is an unique exercise method effective in prevention and treatment of spinal disorders, muscle imbalance and mechanical problems of peripheral joints(shoulders, hips, keens and feet).

This unconventional movement approach relies on the concept of spiral muscle chains producing traction of the spine that relieves pressure in the intervertebral discs and joints and allows for the proper nutrition and regeneration. Muscle spirals also allow for optimal spinal mobility while aligning the spine into a centralized axis.

The exercises are performed with an elastic cord and incorporate all important elements of strengthening, stabilization, stretching, relaxation, coordination and balance in every exercise.

They are easy to learn as they are based on the natural movement patterns of the body regularly used during walking and running.

How does it work?

Initially the focus goes to reducing muscle imbalances in the shoulder. We continue by correcting the muscle imbalance in the pelvis and later in the abdominal region. We stretch the muscles compressing the spine – long muscles located along the spine. We renew the activity of the short muscles that coordinate the mutual alignment of the vertebrae. We exercise the muscle spirals through body’s main section – the external, internal oblique and transverse abdominal muscles, which contract the area of the waist and create an upward force. After correctly performing the exercises with an excellent technique standing on both feet, we continue by exercising on only one foot. Exercising on one foot develops a sense of balance and increases the effect of spiral stabilization (intensively strengthens the abdominal muscles) and supports the arch of the foot.

Who can benefit from Spiral Stabilization Exercises?

Spiral Stabilization is especially for those who suffer from:

  • Disc degeneration/prolapse/herniation – with the help of muscle chains the body develops upward strength that relieves pressure on the intervertebral discs and joints and allows for their regeneration and treatment.
  • Scoliosis (kyphosis, lordosis) – exercises will change the insufficient activity of the muscle spirals to its correct functioning and create a dynamic stabilizing muscle corset, which will cause upward traction force, bringing the spine to the central axis.
  • Failed back surgery syndrome – treatment and prevention of complications after unsuccessful spinal surgeries.
  • Hip and knee surgery – treatment and prevention of unstable walking after hip or knee surgery or as a preparation for surgery.
  • Children/Youth – the exercise is aimed at regeneration focusing on reversing poor posture, which is frequently caused by long periods of sitting at a desk at school, also kyphosis, lordosis, scoliosis and Scheuermann’s disease.
  • Middle aged/General pain sufferers – the exercises will be aimed at rectifying muscle imbalances caused by a sedentary job and asymmetric loading such as overworking or overusing. We concentrate on renewing muscle balance, releasing painful muscle tension and optimizing movement coordination

  • “I ‘m an active professional with very little time to spare; so when I need help with my aches and pains I go to the best.  At Bentall Physiotherapy therapists are experienced, professional and dedicated to helping us, the patients, feel really good again. An assessment is always focused on the root of the problem not the symptom and I always leave with exercises and suggestions on how I can participate in this healing process. Keep up the great job, you guys! I’m sure I will be back.”

    Sharon M.
  • “Mariola’s knowledge of human body, hands-on approach, professional and friendly manner has made a world of difference in dealing with my chronic low back pain. Now I have my life back and I am grateful for all the help.”

    Susan W.
  • “Experienced, professional and knowledgeable physiotherapists, empowering experience”

    Victor T.
  • “Just wanted to share with you how much I have appreciated the fine work Mariola has done helping to heal my back. Her cheery disposition and professional manner brightened many of my “rainy “days.”

    Janet C. RN
  • “Most of my family and I have been visiting Jacek for almost 15 years with various sports related ailments. Jacek is the best Physiotherapist we have found to get us pain free and moving again.”

    Strat L.
  • “After a shoulder injury I wanted to give up and curl into a ball and pass my days with self pity. Jacek believed in the benefits of exercise and encouraged me to try even when I felt grumpy and frustrated. He told me that the journey might take some time, but that it would be worthwhile. As part of my therapy he challenged me with 10,000 steps a day, and naturally I doubted myself because it was easier not be accountable. Jacek was determined to stand his ground and encouraged me every step of the way – to have courage and to “stick with the program”. Walking 10,000 steps is now a breeze for me, and each day I set new challenges with tremendous pride in myself. I cannot thank Jacek enough for believing in me when I had given up on myself.”

    Rhona M.
  • “Jacek gave me back my life. After I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, Polymyositis and now Osteoarthritis, I struggled for many years with the disease until I found Jacek. He is very knowledgable and skilled to deal with the complexity of my disease and he is flexible with his time in order to bring me relief. His treatments relived me of my joint pains which enabled me to gradually reduced my pain medications. He eventually helped me achieved remission. I’m now off medication and lead a normal life. Jacek is my Physiotherapist of choice whenever I have a flare up for 20 yrs. and recommended him to my family and friends.”

    Joyce M.
  • “My 86 years old mother and I, we are both having arthritis, osteoporosis and osteopenia. We are Jacek’s patients for over 15 years or so, and I told him once that he is not allowed to retire ever! Without his treatments, we would be having very poor life quality. He takes the time to listen and helps you understand what is going on. He is knowledgeable, skilled, intuitive and so thorough. He is confident and inspires you to reach for the highest possible level of physical functioning despite your limitations. And when we talk and joke about his native Poland or our Serbia, our minds are forgetting the painful stretching or twisting that we have to endure in order to improve the range of motion or muscle strength. I have to say that even the toughest manual adjustments are done with extremely gentle approach. Jacek genuinely wants you to be in the best shape you could be. I would absolutely recommend this great professional to anyone!”

    Mirjana A.
  • “Jacek is a very special physiotherapist, my family and I are very grateful to be under his care. I never thought that a physiotherapist would teach me how to breath. Jacek educates about the fundamentals and awareness required to live in your body aligned and healthy. Of course, the process is one of co-creation—his wisdom and guidance and your action incorporating his prescribed posture and exercises. Jacek is a Master at his craft. His passion in understanding the integrated workings of the human body are incredible to say the least. With the depth of Jacek’s knowledge and wisdom in his field, coupled with his presence, makes is easy for me to say, that everybody would be well served to have a session with Jacek!”
