Description

S-922 Lumbar Spine Master Class

Which low back pain patients are right for surgery? Lumbar Spine Master Class can help you determine that. After seeing A LOT of spine-related complaints throughout my career including doing more than 5,000 spine surgery consults over the past decade, it appears to me that there are recognizable patterns of presentation. I have had the opportunity to treat many of those people and found that some are not amenable to physio efforts. We want to identify those early and get them to a more appropriate resource.

In this course, cases will be reviewed, including imaging, to help identify this group. The largest percentage of patients, however, have a strong mechanical dysfunction component that can be treated quite efficiently. This approach involves treating all kinds of areas other than the lumbar spine that have a mechanical influence on the low back. Quick functional tests isolate problem areas and manipulation is used frequently (even in people with acute sciatica but you have to be VERY focused to avoid force through the lumbar spine. That is why this course is best aimed at people with a fair amount of experience).

Soft tissue restrictions will be identified and mobilized as well. The principles can be applied to other areas of symptoms not just back pain as it addresses integrated mechanical dysfunction.
