CALBA
CALBA - COMPUTER-ASSISTED LOW BACK ASSESSMENT

There are many types of low back pain. Herniated disk (‘slipped disk’) is one of the most common. Herniated disk often heals spontaneously but sometimes requires surgery. It can be exacerbated by various activities, including certain remedial exercises and yoga postures. Early detection and appropriate management of herniated disk can probably improve the prospects of recovery and avoidance of long-term chronic low back pain. The most common age range for herniated disc to first emerge is 25 – 45 years, so this is the ideal time to catch it CALBA can help you determine whether your low back pain involves a herniated disk. To obtain a CALBA assessment you enrol (above right) and answer six, short questionnaires, which cover a wide range of factors bearing on herniated disc. CALBA processes the data to help assess the likelihood of herniated disk and its current stage of healing. A low back pain specialist then completes the assessment and prepares a report on your condition along with advice on precautions, lifestyle, and therapeutic exercises. It takes about 20 minutes to answer the questionnaires and up to 2 working days for the report to be prepared and emailed to you. There is a small charge for this service.
