Based on Dr Chris Norris’ book Complete Guide to Back Rehabilitation (Bloomsbury, 2015) this 2 day course presents an evidence based program to safely and effectively manage low back injuries using exercise therapy. It introduces the 3R’s approach – a clinical framework to guide therapists and exercise professionals through the process of designing effective Back Rehab programmes (Norris, 2019).
A balance of theory and practice is used to provide a state-or-the-art approach to modern rehab. Lectures, practical demonstrations, partner work, and small group problem solving are all used to provide a stimulating, easy to follow course.
Learn the science, see the evidence, practice the techniques and expand your client management tools!
