Group hydrotherapy exercises for chronic back pain sufferers - introduction and monitoring
A programme of back exercises in hydrotherapy was developed for a group of people with chronic back pain. As part of management practice, the group was monitored before and during the programme. Findings demonstrated a reduction in pain levels and an improvement in quality of life. The value of the sufferers reassuming control of their treatment programmes and the advantages of working in groups are debated. The financial considerations of hiring out National Health Service facilities to self-help groups are discussed.

Abstract

A programme of back exercises in hydrotherapy was developed for a group of people with chronic back pain. As part of management practice, the group was monitored before and during the programme. Findings demonstrated a reduction in pain levels and an improvement in quality of life. The value of the sufferers reassuming control of their treatment programmes and the advantages of working in groups are debated. The financial considerations of hiring out National Health Service facilities to self-help groups are discussed.
