This 28 hour course will review and advance the theory and practical application of the McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT) in relation to Lumbar Spine problems. It will also introduce the concept of MDT in the assessment and management of lower limb musculoskeletal disorders.
The course will help participants expand their ability to assess, classify and manage patients with lower back problems, related referred pain and functional limitations. The theory and practical application of MDT for lower limb musculoskeletal disorders is also presented.
Lectures, problem solving, reflective learning, clinical reasoning, practical activities, case studies and patient demonstrations are utilised to ensure participants gain a broader knowledge of MDT, within a biopsychosocial framework.
Participants will have the opportunity to discuss and extensively practice the MDT assessment, classification and management process, including the application of both self-treatment and clinician procedures for the lumbar spine and lower limb.
Patient demonstrations are used to illustrate the assessment / re- reassessment process and allow participants to get a realistic impression of the impact of the MDT system on different patient presentations.
