Improving Clinical Reasoning Skills in the Evaluation and Treatment of Low Back and Leg Pain
This three day course will focus on the evaluation and treatment of low back and leg
pain from a neurological and biomechanical perspective. Correlations between the
pathophysiology of this area and a patient’s clinical presentation will be discussed in
detail. This course will include the clinical presentation and treatment of a herniated
lumbar disc, facet joint dysfunction, stenosis, spondylolisthesis and lumbar and
pelvic instabilities. Evaluation of the thoracolumbar junction, lumbar spine, pelvis
and hips will be presented in such a way that the student will be able to decide
which treatment approach has the best chance of success. Treatment techniques will
be eclectic in nature and include neural mobilization, muscle energy, articulatory
techniques, mobilization with movement, directional specific repeated movements
and home exercises.
