Clinical Pain Science for the Low Back, Pelvis and Hips
This 2-day course will focus on how to use an evidence-based framework to achieve better outcomes in the treatment of the low back, pelvis and hips for manual therapists. An understanding of current pain science and biopsychosocial principles will be learned and applied to help participants reconceptualize pain and inform their clinical decision making. Participants will learn how to adapt their current practice and be more comfortable in their communication and application of manual therapy techniques, movement and therapeutic exercises.
This course provides the opportunity to learn how manual therapy, movement modification and therapeutic exercises can be implemented within RMT practice to improve patient outcomes. General and specific movement and exercise interventions will be learned and practiced.
Lecture, discussion, observation, practical exercises with case studies in partners and small groups will be used to emphasize key learning objectives.
