The Lumbar Spine



Physical Examination of the Lumbar Spine - Part 1

Physical Examination of the Lumbar Spine - Part 1

Because low back pain can involve a multitude of factors, how you examine your LBP patients is critical.

In part 1 of this course, we look at the factors that warrant consideration for their possible presence and role in a patient’s low back disorder.We also pay attention to non-musculoskeletal pathology, mechanical factors, ageing and degeneration, structural anomalies and muscle dysfunction.

Part 2 covers the objective examination of the lumbar spine and includes observation, interpretation and analysis of active movements, neurological testing, tension tests, manual segmental examination, muscular examination and the interpretation of the conclusion of the examination.

Management of Mechanical Low Back Pain. A Comprehensive Approach: Part 1

Management of Mechanical Low Back Pain. A Comprehensive Approach: Part 1

Here’s a method that’s been proved to assist millions of people worldwide to reduce and eliminate musculoskeletal disorders - empowering patients to take control of their own symptoms and management, getting them pain free as quickly and cost effectively as possible.

It can also establish a patient’s directional preference and determine movements likely to help abolish the pain and restore function.

This three-part course, which must be taken together, is a must for any professional who treats back and neck pain.

The Effectiveness of Generalised and Specific Lumbar/Cervical Mobilisation on Pain and ROM

The Effectiveness of Generalised and Specific Lumbar/Cervical Mobilisation on Pain and ROM

What interventions do you use to treat spinal pain? Joint mobilisation? Anything else? Do you focus on a specific level? Why? Is there perhaps a better way to do things?

The problem with joint mobilisation is that – on its own – it’s not all that well understood, which could be why it is routinely used in conjunction with other interventions. There is also a great deal of controversy about the role of ‘specific level’ techniques in producing benefit.


This course will examine the effects of a single session of joint mobilization on pain at rest and with most painful movement, and compare the effects when joint mobilization is provided to a specific or non-specific spinal level.

The Sacro-Iliac Joint - Part 1

The Sacro-Iliac Joint - Part 1

We all know that physical factors impact joint motion. But what factors influence the actual mechanics of the joint? Are they purely “mechanical”, or could something else be at play?

This course briefly outlines the assessment findings and the principles for management of the various factors that impact function of the SIJ. It also provides a comprehensive methodology for the effective management of pelvic pain and dysfunction.

Low Back Related-Leg Pain

Low Back Related-Leg Pain

Low back pain and leg pain, like love and marriage, usually go together like a horse and carriage. The key for the practitioner is to differentiate between the two in order to make an appropriate diagnosis and identify the underlying pathology.


This course introduces a systematic approach to assist with the diagnosis and classification of LBP patients in order to provide a more effective, appropriate treatment.
