You are the most important part to your pain alleviation.
The central theme of Back School is that we control back pain, not necessarily cure it. Recognition of the fact that, you have a transitional segment that puts your spine at risk for instability and limits the stress it can take, goes far in building confidence knowing that you can limit its pain and take back your quality of life again.
Back School helps you and those close to you understand your condition(s) and what it takes to manage your pain. Watching a loved one suffer makes us feel helpless. Finding out what is wrong and what can be done in office as well as at home gives everyone an opportunity to help.
Back School explains spine pain conditions, relates that spine pain is not a solitary experience, demonstrates proper movements for daily living, and puts all of us on the same page to help the back pain sufferer.
Back School emphasizes that back pain control, not cure is typically the goal.
Interestingly 95% of 61 patients who attended a back school felt it was worth their time to attend. They felt they understood their condition more fully and learned something to prevent re-injury. (1)
