At Florence Nightingale Community Hospital, we run a 6 week programme that is aimed at patients struggling with persistent back pain, that focuses on beliefs about back pain, and providing skills to become more active.
It follows a cognitive behavioural approach as well as supporting a return to activity using exercise. It aims to help the move towards a self-management approach to back pain.
- The nature and cause of persistent low back pain
- The cognitive behavioural approach
- Exercise and activity for low back pain
- How thoughts and feelings can influence pain
- Pain management skills
If you are interested in attending this 6-week course please speak to your physiotherapist.
