Course Description: 

In this 2-day workshop a bio-psycho-social model for the assessment and management of chronic low back pain disorders will be presented. Within this model a management approach called ‘cognitive functional therapy’ for chronic back pain disorders will be outlined. This approach represents an integrated cognitive and movement / lifestyle behavioural approach to management these complex disorders.
 

This workshop draws together current knowledge from Peter O’Sullivan’s ongoing clinical work and collaborative ground breaking research around the world (Australia, Belgium, Norway and Ireland) investigating the classification and management of chronic low back pain disorders. The workshop is dynamic, interactive and practical. It includes patient demonstrations, clinical reasoning and equips physiotherapists to develop skills in diagnostics as well as the design of CFT interventions for specific disorders.
