One Client at a Time

Living with chronic pain or hypermobility can feel like a never-ending battle.

At The Fibro Guy, we believe that rehab towards better health and well-being, shouldn’t have to feel the same way. That’s why we’ve redefined the traditional approach of supporting those with chronic pain and hypermobility, creating a person-centered framework through movement therapy, education, and using what we call BPS bubbles. Working this way has helped hundreds of our clients around the world, improve their health, feel more empowered, and get back to doing the things that they love the most.

With unlimited support both inside and outside of your sessions, as well as no time limits on your program, you’ll have all the time and space with us to truly focus on your health.

How We Work

For our clients who are hypermobile:

Many approaches to hypermobile rehab focus on building muscle tissue around joints to stabilise them. However, this often leaves out a large part to the puzzle! Read More


To build muscle tissue, you need to overload the tissue with sufficient weight to break down and create new muscle tissue. But with unstable joints, you’re not able to use that amount of weight, and it can potentially cause injuries, as many people with hypermobility often find.

People who go this route often end up with superficial strength, strong on the outside but lacking any fundamental stability. It’s like firing a rocket launcher from a rowing boat – there’s power, but no real foundation.

Additionally, even with prime testosterone levels, the average male can only put on around 8-10 lbs of muscle tissue per year, body-wide and for biological females, that figure is even less.

So then, why do some people with hypermobility, who do have large amounts of musculature, still dislocate?

Well, it’s because muscle tissue is only one part of the equation to joint stability.

Proprioception, your brains ability to know where your joints are in space and time, is the effect of many systems working together, and good stable movement is largely unconscious. Likewise, as paradigms shift, the research now shows that issues like proprioception, are vitally important in helping to stabilise hypermobile joints. 

This is why when we work with our hypermobile clients, we look to these principals, focusing on good cortical representation of your joints, targeted proprioceptive movements, and relearning how to use those joints, helping to predict what force is incoming and how to react to it.  


For our clients who have chronic pain:

We take into account the complex interplay of biological, psychological, and social factors that influence a person’s experience of pain. We use a biopsychosocial approach to helping our clients and call these factors your BPS bubbles.  Read More


The Biological bubble includes physical factors such as genetics, sleep, joint mechanics, medical conditions, nociceptive threshold, hormones, and more that may be contributing to a person’s pain.

The Psychological bubble consists of factors such as past traumas, coping skills, beliefs, emotions, anxiety, and other psychological elements that can compound the issue.

The Social bubble considers factors such as support networks, work and home environment, cultural or societal factors, and other social aspects that can impact a person’s health.

While other rehab programs may often rely solely on external “catalysts,” our framework recognises that these interventions may only be effective if a person’s BPS bubbles are set up in a specific way, as current research suggests.

For example, a person with chronic back pain may try various exercises, but if they have factors in their bubbles that clash with the input of exercise, such as low tissue tolerance, poor oxygenation, or potentially issues like kinesiophobia, then exercise will not help with their pain. However, this does not mean that exercise will not help another person with different BPS bubbles. BPS bubbles are the reason why treatment often works for one person but not others, and by using BPS bubbles we aim to mitigate this as much as possible.

We work with you to identify the underlying contributing factors in your BPS bubbles, rather than chasing symptoms or trying various exercises or methods that may or may not align with the client’s bubbles. By addressing a person’s BPS bubbles through a combination of targeted interventions and education, our aim is to give you the tools to focus on health in the right areas.

BPS Bubbles

Where do you even start when it comes to rehab?

Most people overlook one of the most important factors in their rehab – their BPS bubbles.

Our free ebook is designed to help you understand why BPS bubbles are crucial for your rehab journey. We’ll take you through each of the three bubbles – biological, psychological, and social – and show you how each one impacts your health in many areas.

If you’ve tried various treatments and they haven’t worked for you, it’s likely that your BPS bubbles weren’t considered. By understanding your own unique BPS bubbles, you’ll be better equipped to find the right approach for your rehab.

Rebuilding Independence: Berrie's Story

Meet Berrie, a young woman who had been almost bed-bound for years due to her chronic pain and hypermobility. She had almost given up hope of ever regaining her independence, as nothing ever worked. However, Berrie was able to work with our practitioners to help stabilise her joints, regain her strength, and get back to the things she loves doing. Today, she’s back on track and achieving the things she thought she’d never be able to do again, like jet skiing.

After undergoing three hip surgeries, including cortisone shots, acupuncture, and physical therapy, she still found no relief. At the point where she couldn’t sleep on either of her sides, lift either of her legs, or even wash her own hair, Jess stumbled upon us, hopped on a flight, and sought our support.
