Rehabilitation (rehab) programs are designed to help people recover from low back pain problems. They teach people how to care for their backs and prevent reinjury. They can also help people who have long-term (chronic) pain learn ways to deal with their pain (and with situations that make pain worse). Types of rehab programs include:
Pain clinics or pain management programs.
Physical rehab programs.
Sports medicine or rehab programs.
These programs may be connected with a hospital, clinic, or medical centre.
