Irish Life “Back Up” Programme

What is “Back Up”?

The opportunity to get six Physiotherapy treatments from a Chartered Physiotherapist covered by your Irish Life Health insurance policy. Expert personalised advice can help prevent, improve or correct most back and neck pain.

That’s why the Back-Up programme connects you directly with a Chartered Physiotherapist. The Chartered Physiotherapist clinically assesses your problem, and then develops a treatment plan bespoke to you. The programme allows for up to six sessions of 30 minute one to one appointments. There is a once off fee of €50 for the entire series of treatments.

Whatever your treatment journey, your dedicated Physiotherapist will guide you every step of the way. Followed carefully, your Back-Up programme will help you recover quickly to prevent a chronic problem developing.

How it Works

The Irish Life Health Back Up programme is designed to support early intervention for acute neck and back pain so that an individual can benefit from expert care and advice to ensure a speedy recovery and help reduce the risk of progression or recurrence of the current pain/symptoms.

The Back Up programme recognises the importance of full rehabilitation following an episode of spinal pain. The scheme allows for up to 6 physiotherapy treatment sessions from initial assessment including physiotherapy/manual therapy for pain relief through to rehabilitation and strengthening programmes.

Your physiotherapist then provides Irish Life Health with a discharge summary charting your progress.
