A current evidence informed approach on the Assessment, Treatment and Rehabilitation of LBP

With 60% of the UK population expected to experience at least one bout of lower back pain within their lifetime and it continuing to be one of the highest causes of disability worldwide, many therapists will encounter clients suffering with this on a daily basis. As with many MSK pains and injuries our understanding of lower back pain continues to evolve.

During this one-day workshop we will be exploring the most current evidence surrounding the management of lower back pain. Including assessment and treatment strategies for the musculoskeletal care therapist.

Course content will include:

  • Understanding lower back pain
  • Introduction to pain science in relation to Lower Back Pain
  • Associated Red Flags & when to refer
  • Looking at evidence on correlation between lower back pain and structural changes
  • Looking at different lower back specific tests and their reliability
  • Lower Back Pain assessment
  • Learn diverse soft tissue approaches for treatment for lower back pain
  • Using exercise rehabilitation and movement strategies as treatment for lower back pain
  • Returning clients to activities of daily living and meaningful activities

This is a practical course and there will be plenty of opportunity to discuss real life cases that you have encountered in clinic.


This course is suitable for any professional working in MSK care, including; Physiotherapists, Osteopaths, Chiropractors, Massage Therapists, Soft Tissue Therapists and Sports Therapist. If your qualification is not listed or if you are unsure if this course is suitable for you, please contact us and we will be happy to discuss it.

"I just wanted to share my thoughts about the standards of teaching at The Massage Training School, Exmouth & Bristol. Today I attended the BTEC level 5 therapists in their final assessment and I commend both your tutors and your students. Whilst I've no idea about the world of massage therapy, I teach and assess students at degree and masters level and was credibly impressed with their level of knowledge, the attention to detail from tutors and the students' professionalism. I also have to say that just 5 minutes of sports & remedial therapy on my shoulder has achieved more than hours of other therapy. A credit to the standards at the school. Many thanks!"

Anna-Maria is an incredibly knowledgeable tutor and her passion for the industry is completely evident in the way she delivers each session. She seamlessly includes critical thinking and challenges her students to do the same and this element becomes more of a focus as the course develops. The School is forward thinking in its approach to evidence-based practice with a client-centred approach and I continue to benefit from the latest learning by attending CPD events. As a past student, it is great to know that high quality content is still available, as is the growing community of ISRM members.

I found the CPD format very easy to follow and was very impressed by how interactive it was. The content was thorough, yet simple to understand. I found this style to be less intimidating as a newly qualified STT which allowed me to get involved in the polls and questions. I found the 3 tutors presenting to have the perfect mix of personalities, knowledge and delivery.
