Osteopathic diagnosis and treatment of low back pain.
INTRODUCTION TO OSTEOPATHIC DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT OF LOW BACK PAIN
This is a 3 hour workshop for therapists interested in gaining an insight into the Osteopathic Approach to the treatment of lower back pain.
INTRODUCTION AND SCOPE
There exists a high incidence and prevalence of medical clinical consultations due to vertebral column dysfunctions in general and to the lumbopelvic region in particular; in fact, its approach and management demands an extensive and methodical analysis of the different and multiple structures in association to these conditions.
Successful evaluation , differential diagnosis and treatment of the different structures entails an accurate understanding of the anatomy, biomechanics and pathomechanics. The lumbar region somatic dysfunctions as well as the myofascial chain dysfunctions will have their place in our examination and assessment. A special approach will also be given to some visceral organs, such as the intestines, the kidneys and the gynecological tract, which can also trigger or be responsible for the maintenance and chronicity of these clinical conditions.
Treatment of low back pain conditions can be complex and confusing based upon the multitude of different tissues associated with these areas. By utilizing a holistic, osteopathic approach, we focus on a problem-solving method to accurately and successfully evaluate and fix these painful and invalidating conditions.
Included in this three-hour workshop is a short overview of the most common clinical conditions in which osteopathic therapeutic intervention is indicated. Evaluation and treatment schemes to promote a successful outcome will also be illustrated.
Attendees will develop an osteopathic overview of the evaluation and treatment of low back pain, with diagnosis and application of osteopathic techniques.
GENERAL PURPOSES AND GOALS
To providing anatomical and neurophysiological basic knowledge that is intimately related to low back pain conditions, as well as physiopathological and pathomechanical clinical views.
