Who is this course for?

The Neck & Back Pain: How Structure & Function Relate course will provide therapists with a better understanding of how structure relates to function, and function relates to structure specifically surrounding neck and back pain. This course highlights the processes of improved diagnose and the interrelated causes of back pain, including breath and postural evaluation.

Therapy practitioners should take this course if they would like a more comprehensive understanding of how to inter-relate concepts of structural and functional examination and treatment, and how static postures and dynamic function relate.

As a therapist or strength coach…

You know that structure and function are related, however it can be difficult to reconcile both approaches. Being able to create both structural and functional diagnoses is key to a comprehensive rehabilitation program.

We know structure dictates function and vice versa. The way this concept relates to neck and back pathology is crucial to understand, as we explore concepts that reach far beyond the musculoskeletal system considerations.

Are you dealing with patients who experience neck and back pain?

Neck and back pain are so multi-factorial, even just from a musculoskeletal perspective.  When we begin to consider these diagnoses from a neurological and visceral perspective, it can complicate matters even more. However, these additional perspectives can help simplify as well.
