Sarah Key's Problem Back Masterclasses Levels 1&2 and Level 3   

Physiotherapy Course in Sydney - Australia Australia   Location: Sydney renew Course Date: August 2018

Physiotherapy Course Summary:
These courses provide a great opportunity to really delve into the anatomy and biomechanics of the spine, and to refine palpation and mobilisation skills, including learning to mobilise using the heel (a great way to save your hands!). The 'Five Stages of Breakdown' of the human spine will be introduced and explored, and you will develop confidence in recognising and treating patients in each stage. Courses will be led by Sarah Key herself, a clinician with 4 decades of experience, and an international reputation for treating problem backs. She is also the author of popular books including 'The Back Sufferer's Bible'.

Patients at the Sarah Key clinic often state that in being treated with the heel it is the first time a therapist has 'found their pain'. They also love the simplicity and effectiveness of the exercises which actually make a difference. From the therapists point of view, this course makes treating difficult patients much more straight forward, and much less taxing on your hands!!

LEVEL 1 & 2
Designed to introduce Sarah's 'Five Stages of Breakdown' and provide insight into lower back pain treatment and management.
Theory via Webinar
Practical Modules: August 9th and 10th 2018 (Thurs/Fri)
Cost $950

LEVEL 3 (for those who have already completed levels 1&2)
Exploring more complex cases and the thoracic and cervical spine.
Theory via Webinar
Practical Modules : August 12th and 13th 2018 (Sun/Mon)
Cost $950

*Both courses require theory components to be completed via webinar prior to attendance at the Practical Modules.

Sarah explains how to recognise – and treat – each of five distinct spinal syndromes in this linear sequence of breakdown: a stiff spinal segment where a spinal segment is less mobile and palpably sore; facet joint arthropathy where stiffening and thinning of the disc alters the forces through the facet joints at the same level; acute locked back where reduced disc pressure and muscle imbalance can allow a crisis locking of a facet joint; disc prolapse where reduced proteoglycans concentration of the nucleus coupled with annular break-up causes local biomechanical and biochemical effects; segmental instability where loss of nuclear cohesion and facet breakdown weaken the intrinsic stability of a segment.

Sarah postulates that a cascade of degenerative change may progress from a benign and easily-reversed ‘disc stiffness’ to pathological breakdown of the entire motion segment. As each progressive syndrome acquires greater complexity it becomes harder to reverse. But since most spinal conditions (up to 90%) fall into the category of ‘non-specific LBP’ Sarah proposes that ideal treatment has every opportunity to arrest the development of incurable spinal disorders while still in this early and reversible stage.

Please be aware that the SKMC L1 and L2 online theory module each contain 6 hours of online content, including webinars and exams. Past course attendees have found that completing the two levels may take anywhere from 1 week full time to 1 month part time. There is a lot of content in the courses.

Please be aware too that Practical Adjunct Days are scheduled around a minimum number of attendees.
