We believe a fundamental element to recovery from back pain is education.

It will also help reduce the chances of a recurrence.
Education as part of the treatment for back pain
When you have treatment at the clinic the amount of time you spend in the clinic is minimal compared to the rest of the week when you are at home and at work. That is why for any treatment to be successful it needs to be encompassed by education.
Here at Prime Therapy Clinic we pride ourselves on delivering high quality treatment that is evidence based and up to date with the latest guidelines. Education is a first line treatment option in the treatment of low back pain. What that means is that education should be provided first and then any other treatment should accompany that.
