Part A - The Lumbar Spine

This four-day course presents the theoretical aspects and concepts of the McKenzie Method in Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy, as applied in the examination and treatment of patients with complaints of low back and related referred pain.  Through lectures and patient demonstrations, the derangement, dysfunction and postural syndromes are described in detail and appropriate treatment plans are outlined with emphasis on the use of patient self-treatment procedures.  The clinical efficacy and limitations of the McKenzie approach as applied to the lumbar spine, are illustrated by follow-up patient demonstrations. 

The course begins with a comprehensive prerequisite online session, followed by a three-day live course. The online component allows you to work at your own convenience and learn from an interactive blend of visuals, audio and video designed to familiarize you with the general principles, terminology and more to prepare you to participate in the live course.
