About the Course:
This course begins with instruction on the principles of structural anatomy and the function of the spine before moving on to risk factors for injury. Clinicians will gain an understanding of good posture and proper body mechanics when lifting to reduce risk of injury. Topics covered include strategies to prevent injury, exercises to avoid, core endurance assessment tests and a demonstration of Flexion Free sore exercises and advanced core exercises.

Course Objectives:
1. Recognize the principles of structural anatomy and three functions of the spine.
2. Identify trunk muscles and their function
3. Identify four risk factors for injury to the lumbar spine.
4. Recognize the possible effect of weak/tight muscles on the normal lordotic curve of the lumbar spine.
5. Identify good posture and proper body mechanics when lifting to reduce risk of injury.
6. List causes and symptoms of six common pathologies of the lumbar spine.
7. Identify four strategies to prevent lumbar spine injury.
8. Identify exercises to be avoided based on current clinical evidence.
9. List two tests for assessment of core endurance.
10. Identify appropriate exercises to prevent injury to the lumbar spine from a demonstration of eighteen Flexion Free core exercises and thirteen advanced core exercises.
