Course description
This four-day course focuses on advanced Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy for the Lumber spine and the application of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy for the lower limb. Each major subdivision of the course has very specific educational objectives. In more general terms, the goals of this course are that you gain knowledge and skills that will form the basis from which you may begin to develop your own abilities in applying these principles. 

Objectives
Following attentive participation and completion this course will provide participants with the knowledge, skills and abilities to:

  • Identify and discuss common problems encountered in the application of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy for the lumbar spine.
  • Analyses and discuss the MDT assessment and how it assists with patient classification.
  • Discuss the application of clinician forces, and how they fit with McKenzie's Progression of Forces' concept.
  • To perform clinician techniques for the lumbar spine at an advanced level and to identify problems with their application.
  • Analyze case studies of patients presenting with lumbar spine symptoms and determine classification.
  • Describe and discuss the current evidence base for the use of MDT for lower limb musculoskeletal disorders.
  • Perform MDT assessments for lower limb musculoskeletal disorders and determine the presence of McKenzie syndromes.
  • Design appropriate management programs for patients who present with Derangement, Dysfunction and Postural syndromes in the lower limb.
  • Analyze case studies of patients presenting with lower limb symptoms and determine classification.
