SUMMARY OF PROTOCOL The principal research questions to be addressed in this trial are:
1 What is the effectiveness for randomly selected NHS patients with chronic and recurrent back pain of:
a. introductory (6 lessons) or longer (24 lessons) courses of AT
b. massage therapy
c. GP exercise prescription in a free setting with a nurse follow-up appointment
2 What is the cost-effectiveness of these interventions compared to normal GP care?
A secondary aim is to assess how much of any benefit gained from attending AT lessons and learning and applying the AT in daily life is due to taught and learnt skills rather than to the unavoidable placebo effects of skilled hand contact, individual attention and encouragement from the teacher.
An experimental group of 550 patients with recurrent and chronic back pain will take part in the trial. The trial will be conducted in several areas of the UK.
