This was an absolutely fantastic course. Not only does it help you understand some of the most common causes and treatments for low back pain, it also gives you a list of questions for a postural evaluation. Since 4 out of 5 adults will experience low back pain at some point in their life, this will benefit nearly every client you have. Totally worth the money and time spent to learn the information.

I just started a new job at a chiropractic office and I was interested in what continuing ed would help me better serve my clients in this setting. By taking your low back pain course I think my question is answered and I am on my way. Thanks I look forward to taking more courses
Diane Ducey, LMT
I was leery of taking an online course, thinking it might be a "throw away" kind of learning modality, but I actually found it to be more supportive than I had imagined. In some ways, the material confirmed my knowledge base, which was a nice reminder that I do know something about this work I do and that I already incorporate a lot of it into my practice! At the same time, it opened my eyes to the benefits of continuing education courses and got me excited about exploring even more material in the future.
Patricia Luckey, CMT
These courses pull the information together for me like a quick reference of my class courses and is excellent for review and testing, which keeps me on track, for the goal for my practice.
R. Samarzia, LMT
This course, since it was only 1 credit and it when pretty quick, straight to the point. I really enjoyed the materials and also like that you give references at the end. I can't wait to try a other course.
