A Cognitive Functional Approach To the Mgt of LBP Disorders

Course: A cognitive functional approach for the management of disabling lower back pain disorders

This two day workshop outlines a novel bio-psycho-social approach to the classification, assessment and management of chronic low back pain disorders. Peter will present a treatment model called 'Cognitive functional therapy' (CFT) that integrates both cognitive strategies and functional rehabilitation to change provocative movement and cognitive behaviours that provoke and maintain pain.

The workshop is dynamic, interactive and practical. It includes patient demonstrations, clinical reasoning and equips physiotherapists to develop skills in diagnostics as well as the design of CFT interventions for specific disorders.
