GLA:D BACK PROGRAM

Do you suffer from persistent low back pain? 

If so, the GLA:D Back Program is an excellent treatment option. The program combines assessment, education and exercise classes to help you better understand low back pain and manage it yourself.

Evidence-based program

The GLA:D Back program came from an international study led by researchers at Macquarie University and The University of Southern Denmark.

Results from the GLA:D Back program in Denmark show:

  • 31% reduction in pain

  • 30% less medication use

  • 25% improvement in function

  • 68% achievement of an individually set SMART goal.

We're one of the first clinics in Queensland to offer this program.

WHAT DOES GLA:D BACK INVOLVE?

INITIAL APPOINTMENT

GLA:D Back Program begins with an initial one on one appointment. During this appointment, our physio will ask you questions about your back pain, take baseline measures so we can see your improvement at the end of the program. Our physio will also start to give you advice and education about your condition, so you can better understand your low back pain and how to manage it.

8 WEEKS OF EXERCISE CLASSES

You then start an 8 week small–group exercise program led by a physio. This is done 2 x per week, so you will do a total of 16 classes. The exercise classes are individualised and progressed.
