Program Details

There are many types of physical therapy utilized in the treatment of lumbar spine disorders. In managing low back pain as a homogenous whole, no single form of physical therapy has been shown to be superior to another. There is evidence, however, to suggest that individual heterogeneous subgroups of patients may respond better to specifically matched treatment approaches.

This recorded webinar gives the provider an evidence-based algorithmic methodology that helps distinguish distinct subgroups of patients with lumbar disorders. In addition, it provides an understanding as to how different types of exercise-based physical therapy are beneficial for unique patient characteristics. This type of system has not yet been presented in the literature and will help guide clinicians in their decision-making with respect to the treatment of patients with lumbar disorders. Multiple types of exercise-based physical therapy for the treatment of lumbar diagnoses are offered and discussed.
