Workshop Aim:
This unique workshop aims is to provide delegates with alternative evidence-based interventions for treating non-specific Low Back Pain (LBP). The choice or selection of intervention is generally based on source and cause of LBP. This practical workshop, underpinned by theory, mainly focuses on issues surrounding clinical biomechanics of the lower limb and foot – along with core and pelvic musculoskeletal issues. The workshop examines the deleterious effect they have on the kinetic-chain. Thereafter, adopting a multifactorial approach to a range of simple assessments and treatment strategies – ably used in combination

Workshop Rationale:
LBP affects between 30% and 50% of the UK adult population annually, and up to 80% will experience LBP at some stage in their life. The source / cause of non-specific LBP can be very diverse which frequently implicates the core, pelvic and sacroiliac regions. Research clearly demonstrates that LBP, like many other conditions, is best treated using a multifactorial and/or multidisciplinary approach. Put simply, it is quite clear that no one speciality or single treatment has all the answers. When we exclude medical conditions and major trauma, lower limb biomechanics (foot dysfunction) combined with core / pelvic muscle imbalances account for a significant proportion of LBP. Therefore, this workshop examines the benefits of using a combination of selective assessment and treatment strategies associated with the foot, core and pelvic regions
