Journal Club #24

Date Recorded: 17/06/2024

Duration: 60 minutes

Presenter: Ciaran Regan

Topic: What is the relationship between load and chronic low back pain?

Article link

In this month's Journal Club we investigate the relationship between load and chronic back pain. This scoping review looked to "assess the causal role of the relationship between loading and the onset of non-specific low back pain (NSLBP) and persistence of NSLBP (chronic low back pain [CLBP])." Join us as we discuss the article and the many angles from which the authors tried to answer their objective.

This 60 minute zoom session will dive into various articles, guidelines and consensus statements to help keep those in clinical practice up to date with current literature. Article links will be provided beforehand for those interested in reading. During the journal club, the topical article(s) will be presented briefly before a group discussion around key points. Discussion will be mediated by the NZMPA Executive Committee members who are organising that particular night.

Note that we are encouraging members, or interested individuals, of all skill levels and experience to join and participate. Whether you come to learn, facilitate or broaden discussion, we hope that you will both benefit your own clinical practice and the overall Journal Club goal of encouraging high standards of clinical practice in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy.

Open to anyone interested.
