FEEDBACK FROM OUR RECENT PART A COURSES:

  • I will now have a much more clear and systematic approach. I had a lot of success with the basics, but I feel much more confident assessing and treating patients that do not respond to extensions/flexions/side glides and I now know when is best to implement new force progressions or force alternatives
  • The A course has fully restructured my assessment approach to be more comprehensive and provide me with much more provisional categorization of people with low back pain so that I can have a more targeted objective exam.
  • The traffic light analogy and a deeper understanding of force progressions/alternatives has benefitted my clinical application of MDT. Also, a step by step description/demonstration of the lumbar techniques and rationale behind them was extremely valuable to me.
  • My level of understanding about patient self- treatment and exercise improved (especially on posture and extension exercise)

ASSESS & DIAGNOSE YOUR PATIENTS WITH CONFIDENCE

The MDT approach is a comprehensive biopsychosocial classification system that enables clinicians to reliably classify specific sub-groups and successfully match the classification to the appropriate treatment. Also, the MDT system identifies if the patient is unsuitable for mechanical therapy. A full history (with or without examination) can exclude patients with serious pathology or non-mechanical pain that require medical referral or non-mechanical treatment approaches. With a thorough knowledge of the three syndromes (derangement, dysfunction and posture) a trained clinician can identify directional preference, centralization or other consistent mechanical responses in keeping with the MDT syndromes and their predicted response to treatment. Once the syndromes are ruled out, the clinician can more accurately identify other diagnoses such as SIJ, spinal stenosis, symptomatic spondylolithesis or non-mechanical presentations unsuitable for mechanical therapy [Danish Institute for Health Technology Assessment (1999) American College of Occupation and Environmental Medicine (2005)].
