Courses Overview

Course A - The Lumbar Spine

Course A

Part A - The Lumbar Spine

This 28 hour 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.

Course Goals

  1. Appropriately apply the McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy to patients with lumbar spine problems.
  2. Distinguish between the McKenzie syndromes (derangement, dysfunction, postural) and other spinal conditions and provide appropriate management regimens for each of the McKenzie syndromes.
  3. Identify when the application of external forces is required for the resolution of symptoms using McKenzie’s concept of progression of forces.
