FNOR 1: NEURO-ORTHOPEDIC APPROACH TO REHABILITATION OF THE LUMBO-PELVIC-HIP COMPLEX
Neuro-Orthopedic Approach to Rehabilitation of the Lumbopelvic Hip Complex
Of the 80% of patients undergoing surgery who experience postoperative pain; fewer than half report adequate pain relief: of these, 88% report their pain is moderate, severe, or extreme; 10-50% of patients with postsurgical pain develop chronic pain, depending on the type of surgery; and for around 10% of these patients, this chronic postoperative pain is persistent and severe. (Institute of Medicine, 2011)
Failed back surgery syndrome incidences are growing and becoming commonplace, affecting around 10-40% of patients who have undergone lumbar spinal surgery (Thomson, S., & Jacques, L, 2009 & Weiner et al, 2006).
SOME OF THE CLINICALLY USEFUL CONCEPTS YOU CAN EXPECT TO LEARN FROM THIS COURSE:
- The 4 most significant (yet underappreciated) biomechanical influences on Spinal Stability and Lower Back Pain.
- Central and Peripheral Nervous System changes in Chronic Lower Back Pain.
- 5 Reasons why what we’ve learned about Sacroiliac Dysfunction may be wrong.
- Why Spine Pain frequently persists and recurs after Surgery.
- A more efficient and evidenced-based clinical approach to Spine Pain.
- Integrative Corrective Exercise for Spine Conditions.
- Relationship between Gait and Fundamental Movement in Lower Back Pain.
- Neuroscience-based approach to Spine Rehabilitation.
- Practical, Behavioral and Cognitive considerations in Lower Back Pain.
While the past decade has seen an explosion in the variety of approaches to musculoskeletal rehabilitation, the reality is that the staggering incidence of spine pain, especially lower back pain, in the general population continues to escalate. The problem is in part compounded by an equally alarming, high rate of complications associated with spine surgery in the form of post-surgical pain (failed back surgery syndrome). The statistics resoundingly call for a systemic change in approach to chronic spine pain. While creativity seems to be flourishing in the world of rehabilitation, it appears that we have yet to realize a real, comprehensive solution to this massive problem in healthcare.
FNOR I is close to the roots of the entire FNOR program, which was developed from a project that was exploring the multi-factorial nature of post-surgical spine pain and non-invasive, innovative treatment options for failed back surgery syndrome. This course presents an integrative, neuroscience-based approach to rehabilitation of the spine, delivered within the framework of an updated, evidence-based, systematic clinical approach. While the unique, distinguishing elements of this program were born from the challenges of treating the most complex of spine pain presentations, the techniques presented in this course are relatively simple by design and allow the practitioner to easily rehabilitate the full spectrum of presentations ranging from simple, common, mechanical lower back pain to more challenging, chronic, lower back pain.
WHY (AS A MODERN REHABILITATION SPECIALIST) YOU SHOULD TAKE THIS COURSE:
“Lower Back Pain stands alone as the most problematic, costly and enigmatic musculoskeletal complaint. Statistics suggest that current approaches are not doing enough to solve the problem.”
Most experienced rehabilitation specialists realize the real need for new solutions to the problem of lower back pain. This course will present an integrative approach that combines arthrokinematics, peripheral and central neurology, and current pain physiology, that not only presents a new approach to Lower Back Pain but is also easy to adopt… no matter what your professional background.
