Lesson Plan

This webinar will discuss a Brain Based Musculoskeletal Approach to low back pain. A Brain Based Approach recognizes those with pain and dysfunction often have a discrepancy between the proprioceptive, vestibular and ocular systems, especially those with low back pain.

You will also learn strategies and clinical applications for immediate treatment processes for those with back pain. Objectives:

  • Summarize and critique three major sensory systems and interpret their interactions.
  • Apply and demonstrate Brain Based approaches to assessment of low back pain.
