GEMS offers you a back and neck rehabilitation programme to provide you or your dependants with appropriate treatment to manage your back and neck pain.
The focus of the programme is on functional rehabilitation with major components being controlled exercises, bio-psychosocial support, and pain education and management. Clinical measurements are taken and recorded which are used to evaluate the progress of treatment over time.
Positive outcomes include improved flexibility, reduced pain and stiffness, and therefore leading to a more productive life. The programme consists of carefully planned exercises and guidance on how to deal with the back problem and live a normal life.
