    The Lumbo-Sacral Complex

    Low back pain is a significant contributor to disability worldwide and is one of the most common conditions for which patients seek care. Treatment approaches can often be confusing due to dogmatic classification systems, which can be overly complicated and difficult to apply in a clinically meaningful way. However, patients with regional disorders often present with similar clinical presentations. These clinical presentations can often guide clinicians towards the best treatment options.

    This course is designed to be eclectic in its delivery to best suit the needs the busy clinician. Treatment approaches are organized based on categories that are consistent with how patients that report low back pain are likely to present. Patients presenting with chronic low back pain, referred leg pain, SI dysfunction or even stenosis will often respond to similar treatment approaches. This course will provide treatment options in a multimodal context that are grouped to address the most common clinical presentations. Finally, treatment approaches are organized in a logical way providing examples of how the treatments could be integrated.

      The Cervico-Thoracic Complex

      Neck pain leads to significant disability and limits functional abilities for patients at all levels. Treatment approaches can often be confusing due to dogmatic classification systems, which can be overly complicated and difficult to apply in a clinically meaningful way. However, patients with regional disorders often present with similar clinical presentations. These clinical presentations can often guide clinicians towards the best treatment options.

      This course is designed to be eclectic in its delivery to best suit the needs the busy clinician. Treatment approaches are organized based on categories that are consistent with how patients that report neck pain are likely to present. Clinical presentations such as chronic neck pain, radiculopathy, traumatic onset, asymmetric movements, headache or myofascial pain are common in clinical practice. This course will provide treatment options in a multimodal context that are grouped to address the most common clinical presentations. Finally, treatment approaches are organized in a logical way providing examples of how the treatments could be integrated.
