Lower Back Pain - Solving the Lumbar-Pelvic Complex
Dr. Marie-Elaine Grant. Dip Physio. (NUI) PhD, SMISCP, MCSP. International Olympic Committee: Medical and Scientific Commission
A one-day workshop
On 4th October 2018 in Derby for 1 day(s)
at London Road Community Hospital
Course Aims
  • This workshop aims to give a clear understanding of the reasons why back pain occurs in 80% of the population the population, a clear understanding of the biomechanics and pathology underpinning Low Back Pain.
  • Key factors relating to the prevention of low back pain and the role of core stability in injury prevention will be discussed.
  • Participants will be given a clear understanding of clinical, functional and dynamic evaluation techniques of the Lumbar-Pelvic complex relative to both athletes and non-athletes.
  • Demonstration and discussion on the application of evidence-based treatment and rehabilitation approaches including joint and soft tissue manual techniques
  • Correction of Biomechanics and alignment issues.
  • Practical guidelines for strengthening while addressing many of the myths associated with 'core-stability'.
Learning Outcomes

Workshop participants will:

  • Improve their knowledge of the Anatomy of the Lumbar-Pelvic Complex
  • Advance their understanding of Lumbar-Pelvic functional biomechanics.
  • Develop a clear understanding of the pathological reasons associated with the painful and dysfunctional Lumbar-Pelvic unit.
  • Deepen their understanding the factors associated with mechanical LBP how load, overuse and trauma can contribute to the problem.
  • Advance their skills in assessment including the role of scans, neurological assessment, special tests, movement patterns, biomechanics, palpation, the kinetic chain, loading and functional tests and evaluating core stability.
  • Increase their understanding of the necessary criteria to make the best choices in treating, rehabilitating, managing and preventing the problem.
  • Increase competence in the application of effective core stability programme understanding based on evidence strategies and expected outcomes
