The purpose of this course is to bridge the gap between rehabilitation and optimal living. This course falls within the scope of practice for personal trainers as the focus is on postures, motions and loads. It empowers trainers and clients to find the source of their lingering chronic pain and builds awareness and strategies to allow the client to return to performing all of their activities of daily living.
DTS Low Back Pain Specialist is designed to help trainers bridge the gap between lower back pain and activity. It combs through practical functional anatomy while also teaching students how to thoroughly investigate the root causes of pain. This course was made in collaboration with world renowned spine expert, Dr. Stuart McGill and utilizes both his research and methods. Like many health and fitness topics, Low Back Pain is not a “one-size fits all”. While you will learn practical assessments for your clients that will help to uncover their individual pain triggers and relief postures, as well as motions and loads associated with low back pain; you will also learn solutions. We will explore what small changes can be implemented into the client's daily routine? What movements and exercises can contribute to the problem? What movements and exercises provide relief? What would an exercise program look like for an individual with low back pain?
