The Treatment-Based Classification (TBC) System for low back pain provides a model that the clinician can use to make evidence based treatment decisions from the patient's clinical presentation. In this approach the patient is first triaged to determine if they will benefit from rehabilitation and then triaged to determine which rehabilitation approach is most appropriate. The primary purpose of the TBC approach is to identify features at baseline that predict responsiveness to three different rehabilitation approaches. This course will explore the algorithms and different treatment approaches that form part of the Treatment-Based Classification System and explore how to triage patients into these treatment/rehabilitation approaches.
This course aims to provide you with information regarding the basis of the Treatment-Based Classification System and directions on how to apply it in daily practice.
The course content is split into the following sections:
- Video of interview with topic specialist
- Reading activity
This course is aimed at Physiotherapy and Physical Therapy clinicians, students and assistants. Other interested professionals such as athletic trainers, occupational therapists, nurses or medical doctors interested in this subject are also invited to participate.

I have found Physioplus courses to be up-to-date and evidence-based while remaining digestible and accessible. The structured format works well with my busy work and family schedules. I can complete sections little by little and see my progress every time I return.
