When examining a patient with low back pain it is important to have the skills to make a prognosis with regards to the likely outcomes. These predictions should guide the treatment and/or referral of that patient. Factors that influence outcomes can be identified from the patient intake form, subjective interview and during the patient examination. These predictions can continue to be developed throughout physiotherapy management through considering changes in the patient's condition during and between treatment sessions. This course will give you an overview of the factors that influence outcomes in a patient with low back pain. Subjective and objective examination will be discussed as well as some treatment strategies.


The aim of this course is to explore factors that will influence the outcome of a patient with low back pain and how this can be used to optimise the management strategy for that patient.
