COURSE OBJECTIVES

This course will enable Physical Therapists and all health care providers interested, to gain a practical knowledge of the possible risk factors leading to the development of acute & persistent low back pain (LBP)

Upon completion of this course, the Physical Therapist will not only be more confident in identifying various contributing factors to the development of persistent low back pain but most importantly, they will be more confident in addressing these various factors including…

  1. Reduced physical activity
  2. Reduced variability of movement
  3. Fear of pain and not recovery
  4. Catastophization
  5. Perceived injustice
  6. Excess reliance on health care providers to be “fixed”

This course will focus on novel exercise prescriptions based on the specific functional impairments of the individual.
