Do you ever feel like your patients are on a merry go round from one pain and injury to another? You help your patient overcome low back pain, then a month or two later they come back with neck and shoulder or knee pain.
Other patients take one step forward and two steps back, with a big reduction in their lateral hip or back pain during your session, then hobble back in for their next session feeling worse than before.

- Whether psychosocial elements sort themself out as your patients’ pain improves with your treatment.
- How to have time in your treatment session for exercise progressions while also addressing the “bio”, “psycho” AND “social” factors impacting your patients pain.
