Spinal Manipulation 104: LBP Clinical Trials / 1 Credit

Price: $19.95

Learning Objectives:
  1. Illustrate the importance of positive within- and between-session ‘patient response’ as a potential prognostic indicator for outcomes in low back pain patients.
  2. Determine if early application of thrust manipulation (SMT) is more effective than early application of non-thrust mobilization in patients with mechanical low back pain (LBP).
  3. Justify the use of regional versus non-regional use of spinal manipulation (SMT) in patients with chronic low back pain (LBP).
  4. Examine the relation between improved disability and changes in the lumbar multifidus and abdominal thickness following two spinal manipulation (SMT) treatments in patients with low back pain (LBP).
  5. Identify the optimal dose (number of visits) of spinal manipulation (SMT) for the care of chronic low back pain (cLBP).
