Back skills training (iBeST) is a group specifically designed to help people recover from episodes of back pain that have lasted more than 6 weeks. It helps patients understand their pain and offers practical tools and advice for recovery.
The programme involves:
An initial 1-hour one-to-one assessment with a physiotherapist to make sure we properly understand your problem and that group back skills training is right for you. A clinician will help you set goals tailored to you and give you your workbook.
6 x 90 minute group sessions, usually over 6 weeks. This will include education, self management skills, graded activity plans and goal setting.
