Back Rehab

The 3 R’s Approach

Based on Dr Chris Norris’ book Back Rehabilitation – core stability re-examined (Routledge 2023) this 2 day course presents an evidence based program to safely and effectively manage low back injuries using exercise therapy.  It introduces the 3R’s  approach – a  clinical framework to guide therapists and exercise professionals through the process of designing effective Back Rehab programmes (Norris, 2019). 

A balance of theory and practice is used to provide a state-or-the-art approach to modern rehab.  Lectures, practical demonstrations, partner work, and small group problem solving are all used to provide a stimulating, easy to follow course.

Learn the science, see the evidence, practice the techniques and expand your client management tools!

Suitable for therapists and exercise teachers of all types (Level 3 and above).
