Chronic low back pain (LBP) management often requires a complete lifestyle change for effective, long-lasting pain relief. For some persons with LBP, unhealthy behaviours such as substance abuse, lack of social connectedness, and poor self-care can contribute to the chronicity of LBP. This course, the fifth and final in a five-part series, considers how lifestyle behavioural factors can influence the severity and longevity of LBP. This course also includes a required case study that will review all integrative lifestyle medicine topics discussed in this series, allowing the participant to practise providing holistic whole-person care.
This course aims to broaden your understanding of integrative lifestyle medicine with a discussion of behavioural influences on chronic LBP.
