Back Rehabilitation – The 3R’s Approach

Venue: London Road Community Hospital, Derby DE1 2QY. Ref. 2939

Lecturer: Dr Christopher Norris


Based on Dr Chris Norris’ book Complete Guide to Back Rehabilitation (Bloomsbury, 2015) this 2 day course presents an evidence based program to safely and effectively manage low back injuries using exercise therapy.

A balance of theory and practice is used to provide a state-or-the-art approach to modern rehab.  Lectures, practical demonstrations, partner work, and small group problem solving are all used to provide a stimulating, easy to follow course.

Specific Topics will include:

  • Functional anatomy of the spine
  • Lumbo-pelvic mechanics
  • Mechanics of lifting
  • Biopsychosocial approach to Chronic Low Back Pain (CLBP)
  • Pain science – what is it and when is it relevant?
  • Posture evaluation an update
  • Core stability – where are we now?
  • Concepts in exercise therapy
  • Teaching techniques for clinical clients
  • Cueing (visual / tactile / auditory), adjustments,
  • Optimal tissue loading & rehab planning
  • Low back pain – not all in the tissues
  • Exercise progression – from injury onset to return to work.

Suitable for therapists and exercise teachers of all types.
