A Cross Country Education webcast aims to provide participants a comprehensive program designed to help them understand, assess, and treat back problems with optimal outcomes. The “Current Updates on the Treatment of Low Back Pain” 1-day seminar, according to the Cross Country Education website, is intended to help participants be more efficient, competent, and successful. The seminar will also share the most current information to allow for the development of strategies to effectively manage back problems.

During the seminar, participants will learn about changes in treatment philosophy to more effectively treat acute and chronic back pain, assessing appropriate techniques for treating low back pain in any setting, evaluating the pros and cons of different types of outcome measures, and which measures are valid and reliable.

Course objectives include discovering how to move away from a symptom-based to a more functional approach, understanding the functional anatomy and the role of the muscular system, recognizing the common causes of lower back pain, and demonstrating how to recruit the inner and outer core and develop functionally based exercises for various patient populations.
