Integrating Science and Therapy

Increase Your Clients Back Stability

The Back Stability: Integrating Science and Therapy™ home study continuing education course is offered to you in a distance-learning format (all materials are emailed), providing a clear progression from initial concepts to clinical applications. The text introduces the problems of back pain and instability and provides an explanation of spinal anatomy, movements, and the physics of lifting.

A discussion follows the basic skills required for developing stability. Assessments of posture and muscle balance are highlighted, and foundational movements for the development of core stability are introduced. After covering the essential information, the text moves into more practical applications by presenting progressive exercises and basic equipment used for developing greater stability.

Information on abdominal training, resistance equipment, speed and power, and practical functional progressions will help your patients or clients increase their back stability and enhance their performance. Finally, real-life patient examples illustrate how to structure a full back stability program.
