The aims of the rehabilitation programme were: to decrease functional disability; to increase the patient`s confidence to carry out normal activities of daily living despite pain; to improve general health, to overcome fear of pain, to improve psychological well being; and to increase physical endurance.

Daily exercise was individually tailored to the patients' ability. The exercises consisted of stretching exercises, general muscle strengthening, spine stabilisation exercises aiming to exercise the deep abdominal muscles, endurance, and low impact aerobic exercise. All exercise was paced, setting baseline activities at 80 per cent less than the patient's pre-treatment scores, and progressed slowly to avoid over-activity.

Exercise included step-ups, walking on a treadmill, cycling on a static ergometer, bridging, static and dynamic abdominal and extensor work, abdominal exercises using a gym ball, and upper limb strengthening. Spine stabilisation exercises were taught in all centres.
