August 31, 2022 - December 31, 2023
Ongoing Online Workshop: Retaining the back-pained client
This is the second session from the recent CFES “Fitness Today: The New Normal” live streaming conference with Dr. Stuart McGill.
Listening to this conference presentation and completing and submitting the session questionnaire is a great way to fulfill your career development continued education credits (CECs) and learn from some of the best current fitness presenters today.
Stuart McGill is Professor Emeritus (after 32 years at the University of Waterloo, Canada) who authored over 245 scientific journal papers, 4 books, and mentored over 40 graduate students during this scientific journey. Investigations in the laboratory, training centre and research clinic probed back injury and pain mechanisms, rehabilitation approaches, and performance training.
As a consultant, he has provided expertise on low back injury to various government agencies, many corporations and legal firms and hundreds of professional/international athletes and teams worldwide. He is regularly referred special patient cases from the international medical community for opinion.
Retaining the back pained client requires an assessment to understand the mechanism of their pain. Pain is almost always influenced by specific motions, postures and loads. The results of the assessment guide a movement approach to reduce the pain triggers and allow pain desensitization. Then the program changes to rebuild the essential foundation for the client to meet the demands of their lives with improved resilience and performance.
