Back Rehabilitation
2 Day CPD Course

Back Rehabilitation.

 
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.  It introduces the 3R’s approach – a  clinical framework to guide therapists and exercise professionals through the process of designing effective Back Rehab programmes (Norris, 2019).

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.

Learn the science, see the evidence, practice the techniques and expand your client management tools!

Suitable for therapists and exercise teachers of all types (Level 3 and above).

Please note you may use only one available discount for each course.
