Athletic Back Pain: From Theory to Practice
In this lecture Thomas discusses the epidemiology of athletic back pain, the key differences compared to non-athletic back pain and the research developments in the field.
He then outlines a clear evidence-based clinical reasoning model that helps clinicians understand the clinical presentation of athletic back pain within the biopsychosocial model. This is fundamental to effective decision making in the management of athletic back pain.
Finally he integrates theory and practice, by presenting a case study of an athlete with low back pain and showing how this clinical reasoning approach can be utilised in real life clinical practice.
