Integrated manual therapy for the lumbar spine
Docent : dr Toby Hall (Curtin University – Australia)
This course will cover evidence-based functional evaluation of pain disorders of the lumbar spine and thereby classification for appropriate management. Of special interest will be evidence based clinical practice, emphasizing clinical examination, evaluation, differential diagnosis, interpretation, classification and treatment.
Low back pain is a bio-psychosocial problem, and it is important to recognize that not all patients respond to manual therapy. Identifying potential responders is an important aspect of the evaluation and will be taught in this course. Potential responders to manual therapy need to be carefully examined with respect to the patient’s psychosocial factors, central nervous system sensitivity, joint, muscle and neural systems in an integrated examination procedure. A clinical framework will be described on which to base classification and subsequent management. Strong emphasis is placed on teaching clinicians the ability to perform a comprehensive examination in this regard.
Whilst the course will be presented at a high level this should not prevent participation for those with little or with no previous experience in this special area. After attending this course, it is anticipated that participants will gain personal satisfaction as in a variety of ways, which will enhance their individual requirements.
The manual therapy examination and management process presented in this course is eclectic which provides a more realistic, multifactorial approach to the management of a wide range of patients with acute and chronic lumbar spine pain disorders.
