The Next Level of Spinal Education
Nearly 80% of adults will experience Low Back Pain, (LBP) and seek care in outpatient clinics. Evidence has been inconclusive for the best treatment techniques - especially for spinal stabilization programs. However, new research from electromyography (EMG) studies has provided an improved understanding of how functional movement, muscle imbalances, and ineffective load transfer through the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex increase risk of injury along the entire lower kinetic chain.
Explore the role of movement and muscle imbalances on pain and dysfunction in the spine and lower extremities by using gait, posture, functional movement analysis, and simple clinical tests. Identify true lumbar instability, myofascial sling, and joint dysfunctions that may be contributing to your patient's pain. Discover the latest clinical prediction rules for LBP to guide your treatment planning, and incorporate manual therapy, stabilization, and exercise into your treatment.
Take core, balance, and proprioceptive training to the next level with an interactive, hands-on lab — learn manual techniques to rebalance tissue dysfunctions and how to develop an effective corrective exercise program utilizing inexpensive equipment such as foam rollers. With a more focused approach you will get better outcomes in less time — and you and your patient will have fun in the process!
NOTE: Tuition includes one free CE Certificate (participant will be able to print the certificate of completion after completing and passing the on-line post-test evaluation).
