Read or listen to the course sections, then complete the quiz.

Cost: $19.95
Learning Objectives:
  1. Identify how the sciatic nerve and adjacent nervous structures respond to tensioning and sliding techniques
  2. Appraise the potential benefit of adding forward head posture corrective exercises to the management of lumbosacral radiculopathy
  3. Compare clinical and muscle function outcomes of patients randomized to one of two early multimodal rehabilitation programs following single-level lumbar discectomy
  4. Assess whether the diagnostic accuracy of Dejarine’s triad (coughing, sneezing and straining) depends on how patient responses are categorized
  5. Determine whether the presence of certain MRI findings at baseline identify patients with low back pain or sciatica who respond better to specific interventions
Reviews Included:
  1. Sciatic Nerve Excursion During Nerve Mobilization Exercises +MP3
  2. Adding Forward Head Posture Corrective Exercises to the Management of Lumbosacral Radiculopathy – RCT +MP3
  3. Early Multimodal Rehab Following Lumbar Disc Surgery: RCT Comparing Two Exercise Programs +MP3
  4. Importance of Pain Localization with Dejarine’s Triad when Assessing Nerve Root Compression +MP3
  5. MRI Findings as Effect Modifiers for LBP or Sciatica Patients – Systematic Review +MP3
