Course Overview

Understanding Disc Problems
& How to Apply Effective Therapy

Many people suffer from old disc injuries. However, the disc itself will have healed within 3-18 months, depending on the severity of the injury. When back pain lingers for years, or keeps re-occurring, it is often because the muscles surrounding the joint have been traumatised and become dysfunctional. To truly heal from a disc injury and remain pain free, it is imperative to re-educate these muscles that they can once again provide their important function of stability, mobility and strength.

In this workshop we explore how to read the signs and symptoms of discogenic back pain, the nature of our intervertebral discs, the types of disc disruptions and how they happen, how discs heal and when surgery is required as well as therapeutic exercise to help you make a complete recovery from a disc injury.

Additionally, we will look at some other conditions related to disc degeneration.
A digital copy of the PowerPoint slides will be provided.

NOTE: This Workshop can be done as a stand-alone event and is also one of the therapy focused topics of our 300-hour Online Teacher Training.
