Toronto, Canada

Date: January 28-29, 2017

Schedule: 8am 5pm Saturday and Sunday


Course Description:

This course will cover current best evidence in the physical therapy management of low back pain. Laboratory sessions will focus on the safe and effective delivery of thrust and non-thrust manipulation to the lumbar spine, sacroiliac joint, thoracolumbar spine, and lower ribs. Additional labs will cover an introduction to the McKenzie approach, pain science application, and progressive exercise concepts. Mobility and motor control exercises will be included to complement the manual therapy techniques. Lecture material will summarize the developing body of literature regarding the subgrouping of lumbar spine patients, differential diagnosis of lumbar conditions, psychologically informed practice, and lumbar spine examination based on clinical practice guidelines.

Target Audience:
Physical Therapists / Doctors of Medicine / Chiropractors / Athletic Therapists
