Lower Back Disorders: Low Back Disorders provides professionals with the foundation to make the best clinical decisions for building the best prevention and post-rehabilitation programs. This program identifies commonly prescribed practices that, in fact are contraindicated in promoting back health. Additionally, it provides appropriate strategies to offset injuries and restore function. Low Back Disorders will build your understanding of the science behind the practices so that you can use them effectively with clients and patients.The course presents a clear exposition of back anatomy and biomechanics. It also provides the evidence to dispel myths regarding spine stabilization exercise and various prevention approaches. With Low Back Disorders, you will:
  • Gain valuable information on measured loading of the back during specific activities and apply it to avoid common-but counterproductive-practices in back rehab.
  • Learn how to analyze patients’ and clients’ unique physical characteristics and lifestyle factors and tailor treatments and preventive measures to their individual needs.
  • Learn how to help patients and clients achieve the low back stability required to prevent future damage and acquire the information necessary to prescribe effective exercise clearly and easily.
Low Back Disorders is well organized and easy to understand. Part one provides a solid foundation on how the back works and how the back becomes injured. Part two shows you how to use this foundation to build evidence-based prevention programs by assessing risks, creating ergonomic interventions, and training personnel. Part three focuses on improving rehabilitation techniques and, specifically, quantification of spine stability to determine which exercises are important for spine stability for each person.
