Rehabilitation of the Lumbar Spine Course

Saturday 7th September 2019 

@ London School of Osteopathy, Grange Road, London

The lumbar spine is probably the area that patients report pain in the most, be it from sedentary work or lifestyles, straining whilst competing in sports or just from exercising or doing the garden.

The low back is also a complicated area to treat, as it communicates the pelvis and lower extremities to upper body. This course’s aim is to look at the biomechanics, examination, special testing and differential diagnosis of the Lumbar Spine and then explore the rehabilitation of the area.


This course is ideal for any therapist including physiotherapist, osteopath, chiropractor and sports therapist who wishes to learn more about the Lumbar Spine and the rehabilitation of this area.

The rehabilitation section will be led by Tim Allardyce, Consultant Physiotherapist and Registered Osteopath, and owner of Rehab My Patient, and the morning session will be led by Danny Church and Ben Calvert-Painter who have over 40 years clinical experience between them. Therefore, you will be in very good hands for this course.
