Holistic view of the person
We work with a holistic view of the person, trying to adjust the treatment to the patient’s needs, understanding that back pain covers different spheres, taking into account biological, psychological and social factors and looking for the final expectations of each individual that adapt to the daily life of each person, whether it be activities of daily living or reincorporation into a sport.
The mainstay of treatment is through physical exercise, although it cannot be separated from education in healthy habits, pain management, and emotional management.
Who is the Back School aimed at?
People, athletes or not, who suffer from chronic or persistent lumbar, dorsal or cervical pain due to different causes (scoliosis, herniated discs, disc protrusions, spondylolysis, spondylolisthesis, disc degeneration, discopathies, sciatica).
People, athletes or not, who want to reduce the risk of back pain.
The treatment is suitable for anyone, any age, any physical condition, anyone who is willing to internalise changes and actively engage in their recovery.
What are the Back School sessions based on?
These 50-minute sessions begin with an initial assessment through different functional tests, measuring the range and quality of movement, strength and possible muscular imbalances that may exist.
The first sessions of the Back School are carried out individually, in order to accompany the work on body awareness, muscle activation and motor control. Normally, approximately 4 individual sessions are carried out until the patient acquires greater independence to be able to move on to the group sessions, although if desired, the work can always continue on an individual basis.
These take place in small groups of a maximum of 5 people. You can choose to come 1, 2 or 3 days a week. Each person will follow their own personalised session independent of their group mates.
Monthly voluntary talks are held on the mechanisms that create and/or can perpetuate pain, to help minimise the repercussions that back pain can have on daily life, and to help dissipate and manage pain.
Quarterly nature outings are organised with the companions of the Back School, with the aim of overcoming barriers and beliefs, both physical and social.
