This course provides a once in a lifetime opportunity to hear from the leading international experts in motor control of the spine at the same time. The course is an unrivalled forum to learn the state-of-the-art on the relevance of motor control for management of low back pain, the latest evidence for “if” and “how” motor control treatments are effective for management of low back pain, and how to apply motor control intervention in clinical management of patients. The latest clinical and research evidence will be discussed by the leading international experts and the new frontiers will be highlighted. A particular focus will be on understanding “who” benefits from motor control training, “how” to match the right treatment to the right patient, and “when” it is most effective.
