The GLA:D™ Back Pilot Program is led by our Exercise Specialists.
SPPCN is teaming up with the Alberta Back Care Pathway to offer a GLA:D™ Back Pilot Program in October.
The GLA:D™ Back program is an evidence-based treatment program for individuals with persistent and/or recurrent back pain that negatively affects their everyday life and function. The purpose of GLA:D™ Back is to help patients manage their back pain themselves through a well-described and structured course of treatment.
The program was developed by researchers and clinicians at the University of Southern Denmark. In Canada, GLA:D™ Back is currently available in Alberta (GLA:D Back Alberta) under license to the University of Alberta which is responsible for the certification of GLA:D providers as well as the GLA:D Back patient registry.
GLA:D™ Back Pilot Program includes two sessions per week (Wed/Fri) for eight weeks. It is offered in-person at the SPPCN office in Sherwood Park.
Patients must meet specific criteria in order to join this group program. Talk with your physician to see if it may be right for you.
