Humans often have lower extremity complaints that do not have a clear mechanism of injury. It can be difficult to know if a person’s lower extremity complaint is generated in the lumbar spine or if the lumbar spine is a contributing factor to their pain. In this webinar, Nick Rainey will review case studies to help you better understand the evaluation process with your patients.


The aim of this webinar is to empower the participant with case study examples of how to assess a patient with peripheral pain and possible lumbar spine involvement.


This webinar recording consists of an 1-hour video and additional resources.

The webinar gives me a good reason not to miss the lumbar spine when determining the patient's source of pain.

A short but interesting presentation that reminds one that alternative causes of symptoms should always be kept in mind.
