McGill Method Summit Course 1: Foundation for the Pain Free Back
About this event
This course is the first two days of the McGill Method summit in Melbourne, Australia. It is geared for clinicians, trainers, coaches and performance specialists and anyone who works with back pained clients who wish to update their knowledge to the most recent developments in function of the lumbar spine – specifically how it works, becomes injured, and how this is linked to pain sensitivity. This is to develop an evidence based foundation for clinical decision making and to deliver methods to empower and heal their clients.
You will learn:
- The foundations of how the spine works and becomes injured and/or painful
- How to interpret what clients are presenting to you
- Prevention of back disorders
- Approaches to rehabilitation
- Training methodologies for building the foundation for eventual back performance
After completion of the workshop you will feel empowered to provide guidance in the application of this knowledge to the clinic, workplace, rehabilitation center, and sports field to reduce the risk of injury, optimize healing of the patient, and build ultimate back performance in the athlete.
The McGill Method is based on the scientific and clinical findings of professor Stuart McGill and his team over the past 32 years. All pain has a cause but pain is specific to the individual. The key is to hone in on the cause and apply a strategy to stop the cause and build a foundation for pain-free activity. This requires a mastery in the art and science of assessment, rehabilitation and performance enhancement.
The McGill Method courses are open for anyone to attend, and typically attract delegates from various health care and fitness professions. For example, physiotherapists, chiropractors, trainers, yoga instructors/masters, pilates instructors, sports medicine, medical doctors, physiatrists, coaches, strength coaches, massage therapists, exercise physiologists, students, athletic trainers certified, kinesiologists, and osteopaths, to name a few.
