This four hour course is a survey of the chiropractic assessment and treatment for a number of common presentations of low back pain into chiropractic offices. This four hour course discusses the impact of low back pain in the United States, the conundrum of the high failure rate in treating low back pain, and unique signs and symptoms of three common musculoskeletal origins of low back pain. Red flags and medical emergencies, as well as a number of common organic causes of low back pain will also be discussed, as well as how to manage them.
The technique portion of the course will discuss listings, patient setup, doctor setup, contact points, and line of drive. Varying spinal listings will be compared and contrasted, and combinatory dysfunctions will be addressed with regard to treatment hierarchy.
This course will be valuable for veteran and new chiropractors alike, as it not only describes and demonstrates numerous chiropractic adjustments (Gonstead and Diversified), but also discusses why so many patient presentations end up as enigmas, leading to a revolving door of multiple doctors’ assessments, various treatments, and ultimately, patient frustration.
