Clinical Reasoning, Treatment and Management Principles in Low Back Pain
Time & Location
About the Course
This two day Lumbar Spine course brings together clinical reasoning, case study learning, applied hands-on management and approaches to manage people with low back pain. This course will appeal to clinicians who would like to gain more knowledge in the management of Low Back Pain in a supportive, interactive and engaging environment. The course is led by Neil and Matt and is evidence-based and down to earth. The course will take time to explore the realities of manual therapy, the movement behaviours we can help, and the clinical reasoning that underpins how to make sensible decisions about LBP. Both clinicians have a wealth of experience in the assessment of LBP and management of presentations that commonly occur in the clinic setting.
