Best Practices for Managing Low Back Pain

  • Registration Closed

This practical presentation will begin with a discussion of the current evidence-based evaluation and management of common lumbar structural pathology. The discussion will progress to review the most commonly overlooked “functional” problems that delay NMS recovery. In one way or another, these functional diagnoses contribute to many, if not all, of the lumbar structural diagnoses that chiropractors treat. Attendees will leave with immediately applicable, practical information for enhancing clinical outcomes.
