Course Description
This course will help clinicians understand how the McKenzie system of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT) can complement the Australian approach to managing patients with lumbar spine dysfunction. This course will expand the therapist’s understanding of cues provided in the history that indicate the likely presence of derangement. Examination procedures will be discussed and demonstrated to confirm this sub-classification. The course will include demonstrations, via case studies and lab practice, to identify reductive management strategies that can be created by patient self-movement, mobilization, and manipulation. Discussion and practice of both patient and therapist generated procedures will be included. Special focus will be on managing cases that do not respond to sagittal plane exercises and how to incorporate lateral procedures into your treatments.

Objectives
Upon attentive participation, the learner will be able to:

  • Identify key elements of the MDT sub-classification groups.
  • Identify salient features in the patient history that suggest a diagnosis of derangement.
  • Apply necessary clinical reasoning and loading strategies in various positions to confirm the presence of derangement and differentiate from dysfunction.
  • Analyze and develop a management program that incorporates loading strategies in varying positions to reduce and maintain the reduction of a derangement in the lumbar  spine.
  • Identify areas where MDT concepts of directional preference and centralization can be integrated into the Australian management paradigms.
