GLA:D® Back is a treatment option for people with persistent or recurrent low back pain that affects everyday life.
The program combines education and exercise classes to refine your understanding of low back pain and build on your self management skills.
Evidence-based back pain care:
GLA:D® Back program is also a research program, embedded in an international study led by researchers at Macquarie University and The University of Southern Denmark. Check out some of the research here.
How does it work?
The GLA:D® Back begins with an initial 1:1 assessment, which allows us to ask question about your back pain, set goals and baseline measures. Once this is completed you will then participate in two small-group education sessions covering the latest evidence in back pain to help you understand and take control of your back.
Following this you will begin the 8 weeks of small–group exercise classes. Ideally this is completed 2 x per week, however depending on your schedule we can adjust accordingly. The exercise classes are individualised and progressed, which you can follow along in your own exercise booklet.
At the conclusion of the program we will run a follow-up assessment, goal re-evaluation and recording your follow-up measures. At the end of the program you will have the tools to self manage your back and re-engage with the activities you enjoy.
