Why not give the BeST ( Back skills training) programme a go
What is the Back Skills Training Programme?
Back Skills Training helps people learn to manage their back problem better by learning about their backs and trying out different skills such as exercise and relaxation.
Why is this the best treatment for your back pain?
Traditional approaches to treat back pain have included ‘hands-on therapy’, such as massage or acupuncture. You may have tried some of these treatments in the past. However, as our knowledge of back pain has improved, we now know that these traditional treatments often do not help in the long term. Since back pain often reoccurs over time, treatments that have a long term benefit are important. Therefore, the Back Skills Training programme focuses on teaching you about your back pain and providing you with a range of skills and tools that you can use to manage your back pain over time. The Back Skills Training programme has been extensively researched and has helped a large number of people to reduce their low back pain and improve their quality of life.
What do I have to do? In order to get the most out of the programme, you should try to:
Come to all 6 sessions
Ask anything you want
Do the home exercise programme
Give activities at least a two-week trial
Do the weekly homework tasks
How is the programme run?
There will be between 5 – 10 people in your group, both men and women. They will all be adults and have pain and troubles similar to yours. The groups will be run by Tony who has specialist training.
Scheduling a course to run weekly starting in August 2020
