You will receive access to six online courses, equalling 23.52 Contact Hours.

Clinical Reasoning for Spinal Pain Management – 18.5 Contact Hours – This course takes an in-depth look at Spinal pathoanatomy, biomechanics, basic and segmental clinical examination and interpretation, management suggestions, and specific approaches to diagnose and treat Spinal Pain.

Part 1: Recognizing and Understanding Persistent Pain: all pain is not equal – 1.6 Contact Hours – Part I of a virtual lecture series designed to expand on the clinicians working knowledge of the evaluation of primary pain mechanisms.

Part 2: Choose a Safer Way to Manage Persistent Pain, a Lifestyle Approach – 1.6 Contact Hours – Part II of a virtual lecture series designed to expand the clinicians’ knowledge of managing persistent pain using a biopsychosocial approach based on the best evidence.

Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injections – 0.5 Contact Hours – Dr. Azevedo teaches the key features, indications, and outcomes of lumbar epidural steroid injections. Use this type of explanation when approaching your patients about the need or prescription of interventional pain management for the lumbar spine.

Rapid Identification of Neck Pain – 0.5 CEUs – This short course is packed with information related to patient history and clinical presentation that guides the examiner to a precise clinical working diagnosis of the three most seen musculoskeletal disorders in the neck region: disc protrusions, facet arthropathy, and cervicogenic headache.

Rapid ID of Low Back Pain Generators – 0.82 Contact Hours – This short course is packed with information related to patient history and clinical presentation that guides the examiner to a precise clinical working diagnosis of the three most seen musculoskeletal disorders in the low back region: sacroiliac arthropathy, lumbar disc protrusions, and lumbar spinal stenosis.
