LOWER BACK PAIN & BEYOND
Take a deep dive into assessing & treating back pain in the Cor-Kinetic framework
Modern clinical practice requires clinicians to bring together many diverse elements from a wide range of areas. This can often be confusing, overwhelming and leaving many feeling unprepared by previous education.
This course looks to bring together these elements in a cohesive and evidence based framework that gives clinical reasoning skills to reduce the confusion and burden that is often present. This allows both new grad and experienced clinicians to be more confident, relaxed and ultimately more prepared for this challenge!
We move away from the biomedical model, that has failed many patients, to a more comprehensive Biopsychosocial approach. This course incorporates modern pain science, psychology, communication skills, exercise prescription and movement and motor learning principles to cover all the bases you need for a patient focused & active approach to rehabilitation. There are many interactive problem-solving tasks from group discussions, to small group case studies to practical movement-based task so that you can actually ‘feel’ what your patient will feel.
Be prepared to discuss, move & maybe even have your biases challenged. This is not about a bunch of exercises that you could have just watched on YouTube, its understanding research better, improving communication, up skilling clinical reasoning & trimming away the unnecessary fluff. It goes way beyond just sets, reps & technique that often don’t apply well to treating people with pain anyway
This course has been taught on 5 continents, 30 + countries and 100’s of clinicians & coaches with a whole bunch of discussions, laughs and movement experiences.

"Functional therapeutic movement is without a doubt one of the most practical, well referenced, clinically relevant, and beneficial continuing education courses I’ve taken. Ben has a lively presentation style that keeps you engaged, a good sense of humor, and clear mastery over his content. The course is relevant and valuable for young and experienced clinicians alike. Be sure to come prepared for discussion and plenty of critical thinking!"
