We now know that pain is a very poor indicator of what’s actually going on inside the body, and that things like herniated and bulging discs are far more common than you may think. In this module, we dive deep into how pain works, teach you the latest evidence-based self-management strategies, and provide recommendations for when to refer out to a healthcare professional.

Common Low Back Pain Scenarios
In this module we take a thorough look at 3 common back pain scenarios. First, we will cover sciatica and why it happens. Then, we take a close look at the “dreaded lifter’s low back tweak” and how to self-manage this situation. If you have clients who have tweaked their back on a warm-up set of squats or deadlifts, this one is for you! And finally, we talk about how to address situations where someone may have back pain with prolonged walking and standing.
