Description

This course is based on and includes the book Low Back Disorders: Evidence-Based Prevention and Rehabilitation, 3rd Edition. The book’s author, Stuart McGill, PhD, Kinesiology is an internationally recognized research scientist and expert in spine function, injury prevention, and rehabilitation. In this evidence based course you will learn the principles of spine function, the types of loads that are imposed on the spine during certain activities, how these activities and spine postures can be changed to greatly reduce the loads, and which common exercises are now ill-advised. This comprehensive text examines the scientific foundation of low back disorders, addresses injury risks, and provides a thorough discussion of appropriate low back rehabilitation and injury prevention programs. A major theme of this course is the benefits of blending rehab with ergonomics and prevention. The course will also help therapy professionals protect their own backs and prevent injuries through a solid understanding of low back mechanics and stresses. This course will be immediately useful in clinical practice for physical therapy and occupational therapy providers. Includes access to online video with 17 clips demonstrating clinical applications of various assessments and forms.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------COURSE OBJECTIVES: After successfully completing this course, the learner should be able to: 1.
