The first step of this approach involves an initial triage to screen for a specific pathology. The next step, termed classification-based cognitive functional therapy (CB-CFT), then addresses the remaining 90-95% of patients by determining which cognitive, functional and lifestyle factors they present with, as opposed to just treating the symptom of pain itself. Depending on the individual, the assessment may include expert examinations from clinicians from several medical specialisations, such as medical imaging and biomechanical analysis of sporting techniques. In addition, a range of allied health disciplines, including surgery, sports medicine, medical imaging, neurology, physiotherapy, psychology, biomechanics and exercise therapy, will provide input into patient treatment. Before the decision on whether to build a dedicated spinal clinic is made, an interim Spine Centre is proposed to open by December 2015 within the existing facilities at Aspetar.
