The Complete Clinician’s Approach to Musculoskeletal Management of Lumbar Pain course provides an in-depth look at lumbar spine and sacroiliac joint pathoanatomy (including primary and secondary disc dysfunctions, zygapopheseal pathologies, functional instability, sacroiliac joint complex dysfunctions, etc.), basic and specific clinical examination of the lumbar spine and sacroiliac joint complex, clinical interpretation and differential diagnosis, management suggestions for acute and recurrent/chronic lumbar and SIJ conditions, traction principles, overall management of low back pain, among others.
Each week, course participants will log in and receive 2 hours of live skills enhancement around certain patient care considerations – all on a specific case study prepared to develop the knowledge and skills to become a complete clinician. This way participants can see the systematic approach as it applies to the same case.
