August 20, 2012  By Massage Therapy Canada

The 80
per cent incidence of low back pain in North America is a staggering statistic
and is something health care practitioners are faced with treating
everyday.  The goal of this two-day, 12-hour course is to give
participants a solid theoretical and practical foundation for treating patients
with low back pain and associated disorders.

taking this course, massage therapists/students will be able to provide
evidence-informed, professional, and knowledgeable care for their low back pain

Participants will learn about: 

  • the multi-dimensional and
    multifaceted structures forming the functional low back;
  • theory and practical
    techniques for providing evidence-informed therapy, and self-care
    strategies for low back pain patients;
  • developing effective
    treatment strategies relevant to the client’s goals, signs and symptoms,
    functional abilities, and medical condition;
  • creating a plan of management
    which emphasizes prophylactic training, as well as prevention of pain re-occurrence;
  • general knowledge of
    unnecessarily prescribed pain medication for conditions treated with
    massage therapy.

course is accredited for six CEUs by the College of Massage Therapists of
Ontario.  It will be held on the
Royal Canadian College of Massage Therapy Campus at 31 Scarsdale Rd, Toronto.
