This course provides comprehensive, hands-on instruction on how to introduce a simple, effective, evidence-informed low-back rehab program into any doctor’s practice, with little to no equipment needed.The course focuses on the key elements of any effective treatment protocol, including: how to take an airtight patient history, streamline your physical and orthopedic exam, prescribe a powerful treatment plan, gauge patient progress, and teach your patients how to maintain their results.This course provides the knowledge and skills necessary to enable the busy clinician to build an effective low-tech/no-tech rehab protocol into their practice, or streamline their existing one.
After completing this course, participants will be able to:
1) Implement a simple, effective lower back rehab program into their practice, that requires little to no equipment, and gets consistent, reproducible results.
2) Understand and identify the primary contributors to musculoskeletal injuries, why they occur, and how to assess and address them clinically.
3) Perform a quick but thorough patient history, eliminate “red flags”, develop a working diagnosis during the history, and refine your differential diagnosis with key lifestyle questions.
4) Perform a quick but thorough physical, orthopedic and neurological examination of a patient with lower back pain, and produce an accurate diagnosis.
5) Deliver an easy-to-understand report of findings to the patient, that improves patient outcomes, increases patient compliance, and sets realistic, reproducible outcomes targets for patient recovery.
6) Apply a clear treatment strategy to all patients and all conditions, that ensures reliable results, and less time wasted on ineffective treatments.
7) Apply simple treatment tactics, using 5 clinical tools: spinal manipulation, stretching, massage/foam rolling, exercise & lifestyle modification.
8) Create and explain a return-to-work/return-to-play for each patient that is safe, speedy and easy to understand.
9) Educate patients in preventative and life-performance maintenance, to increase patient compliance and reduce injury recurrence.
