Orthopedic Assessment and TX Planning for Back Pain

Low back pain is one of the most frequent and challenging musculoskeletal conditions that massage therapists will face in the clinic. While the condition is very common, identifying the specific cause of pain continues to pose challenges for clinicians in every field. The fact that pain can exist without tissue damage and tissue damage can occur without pain makes identifying the specific cause of low back pain very difficult. In this session we will take a look at several common causes of back pain, key factors to identify potential causes, and how to plan appropriate treatment.
