Some of you may have seen the main media recently the publication results of the Restore back pain trial. I was fortunate enough to be chosen as a treating physiotherapist in the trial and was trained for 80+ hours by Professor Peter O’Sullivan and Dr. JP Caneiro in Cognitive Functional Therapy for back pain.
It was a well conducted large randomised controlled trial which had significant clinical improvements in both pain and disability and these gains were SUSTAINED at 12 months. This is very exciting news for physiotherapists looking to provide high quality care and for back pain sufferers who are looking for a different approach to help them with their chronic pain.
