This course is designed for physiotherapists who have some experience and knowledge of assessment and treatment of patients with primary symptoms of back and / or referred lower limb pain. Although my course Back Pain 101 is not a pre-requisite, it is recommended for recent graduates or undergraduates.
Back Pain 201 opens the door for lumbar spine and pelvic diagnostics and treatment selection based on a broad perspective that includes pathoanatomy, neurophysiology and the psychosocial dimensions by teaching you the essentials of a comprehensive clinical history and physical examination.
By the end of this course you will be able to confidently identify:
- Mechanical discogenic pain.
- Radicular syndromes.
- Spinal stenosis.
- Sacroiliac joint pain.
- Hip and buttock pain sources.
This course builds on Back Pain 101, providing a structured assessment method that will be further expanded upon in the Back Pain 300 series.
