BACK To Health Programme

A three-week residential programme for the management of lower back pain

The BACK to Health programme aims to de-medicalise back pain through intensive exercise and education with strong underlying cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) principles.

A team comprising of physiotherapist, occupational therapist, specialist nurse, psychologist, dietitian and pharmacist deliver content where emphasis is put on pacing of activities, long term self-management and goal planning to help patients gain control of their pain.

The programme offers a holistic way to manage back pain, supported by the most up to date research, with the aim to avoid surgery and remain active in spite of their pain.
