You see them all the time – patients who come to you hoping for relief from their back pain.

The man in his mid-40s who works a physically demanding job. The 25-year-old fitness freak who hurt herself during a deadlift in a CrossFit gym. The 62-yearold grandpa whose back has been bothering him for years and wants to be able to pick up his grandkids.

Which treatment will be most effective for the patient in front of you?

You’ve got a standard checklist to help identify the problem, but what do you do when that checklist isn’t able to guide your therapy? X-rays looked perfect. Patient has good range of motion. Posture looks good.

This seminar will provide a new framework for evaluating and treating patients. You’ll learn:

  • How to identify the root cause of impairment faster
  • Manual techniques that eliminate pain
  • Effective strategies for addressing common conditions like bulging/herniated discs, osteoarthritis, sciatica and more…

Best of all? You’ll learn how to apply this framework within the bounds of your typical 30-minute appointment. Purchase today to learn these innovative techniques that can be applied to your practice the very next day.
