Mastering The Disc: Mechanical Assessment of the Spine
Recorded On: 01/23/2020
Join Dr. Jonathan Michael Lesch, DC for a webinar which will examine the mechanical properties of spinal discs and how they are the predominant cause of pain in back and neck conditions. Dr. Lesch will discuss how to definitively diagnose the source of back and neck problems through various tests and evidence-based guidelines. He will then explore research which will help registrants better understand the mechanical functions and characteristics of a disc, including discussing issues like disc bulging, directional preference, obstruction to extension, and more. Finally, Dr. Lesch will then identify specific treatment plans which can both assist chiropractors in their treatment and education of their patients, and aid in patient self-treatment.
After viewing this webinar, registrants will be able to:
1. Definitively diagnose the source of neck and back pain with repetitive movement testing and sustained positions with the aid of multiple evidence-based baselines and guidelines.
2. Provide patients with a specific treatment plan that emphasizes patient education and self-treatment.
3. Recognize that most neck and lower back conditions are discogenic in nature and have the ability to be rapidly reversible through highly effective disc reducing exercises and mobilizations.
