EM109: Changing Pain And Movement Behaviour In Chronic Low Back Pain – Using Cognitive Functional Therapy

In this 2-day workshop a bio-psycho-social classification model for the assessment and management of chronic low back pain disorders will be presented. Within this model a management approach called ‘cognitive functional therapy’ for chronic back pain disorders will be outlined. This approach represents an integrated cognitive and movement / lifestyle behavioural approach to management these complex disorders.

This workshop draws together current knowledge from Peter O’Sullivan’s ongoing clinical work and collaborative ground breaking research around the world (Australia, Belgium, Norway and Ireland) investigating the classification and management of chronic low back pain disorders. The workshop is dynamic, interactive and practical. It includes patient demonstrations, clinical reasoning and equips physiotherapists to develop skills in diagnostics as well as the design of CFT interventions for specific disorders.

Objectives:

  1. Overview of the back pain diagnosis, the evidence and management dilemma
  2. Potential multidimensional underlying mechanisms to pain
  3. Overview of the clinical reasoning framework of low back pain disorders
  4. Develop the communication skills acquired to deal with complex pain problems
  5. Develop competency in designing the cognitive component to the motor learning interventions
  6. Develop competency in designing CFT interventions
