1 Hour


Have you ever wondered why some patients respond extremely well to spinal manipulation while others languish? Or why one disc patient improves with knee-to-chest flexion exercises while another prefers McKenzie extension... or traction... or stabilization? Join Drs. Bertelsman and Steele for a practical and enlightening 1-hour webinar that will help you solve these questions by learning to reliably classify each of your LBP patients into one of five well-defined groups. Employing simple clinical prediction rules will allow you to choose the most appropriate treatment to dramatically improve outcomes, increase patient satisfaction and prepare your practice for the value-based reimbursement model.


This course was presented in November 2017 by Dr. Tim Bertelsman and Dr. Brandon Steele and sponsored by ChiroUp.
