Thu Nov 19 | 09:00 am - 11:00 am EDT
Patients with back and neck pain make up a sizable portion of outpatient therapy visits. Chronic pain associated with this growing population can be debilitating and successful outcomes can be hard to achieve. The complexity of this type of pain can be difficult to diagnosis and requires a systematic approach to evaluation to identify the type of pain that is most dominant and helps to classifying patients according to treatment. Using specific evaluation techniques and probing questions to identify both red and yellow flags can help to prioritize what areas need to be addressed first. This course will identify the best cervical and lumbar oriented special tests and partner those results with treatment techniques within each classification. Additionally, the benefits of Pain Neuroscience Education (PNE) and a best practice approach to combining hands-on treatments, exercises and patient education to achieve a more precise prognosis and expectation of outcomes will be discussed.
