Classifying Low Back Pain Differential Diagnosis Course for Physical Therapist is organized by ContinuingEducation.com - OnCourse Learning Corporation and will be held during Mar 14, 2013 - Sep 07, 2019. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.00 Hour.
Course Description :
Due to its high incidence and prevalence in the U.S., low back pain has become a frequently discussed topic in the literature, among insurance payers and governmental bodies. Because LBP is the most commonly treated musculoskeletal condition in the U.S., physical therapists must now obtain superior treatment outcomes in a shorter period of time. By continually screening LBP patients throughout the episode of care, physical therapists can differentially diagnose patients with LBP and improve treatment efficiency and efficacy.
Course objectives are:
The goal of this program is to help physical therapists screen patients effectively and efficiently for possible pathological conditions and nonorganic-related causes for low back pain, determine the sources of patient symptoms and improve physical therapists’ decision-making ability regarding an appropriate plan of care. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
• Determine whether a patient’s LBP symptoms are related to a pathological or a nonorganic process
• Describe the potential source and/or origin of a patient’s musculoskeletal LBP
• Classify a patient with LBP into an appropriate treatment group that best matches signs and symptoms to obtain the most effective and efficient therapeutic outcomes
