      Melbourne McGill Method Level 1, 2, 3 Conference

      Learn the McGill Method to help reduce debilitating back pain in your clients! Stuart McGill, Dr. Ed Cambridge and Joel Proskewitz, will be teaching the three McGill Method intensive courses in Melbourne, Australia!   EARLY BIRD pricing ends on Nov. 7, 2019. After this date, the prices increase to our regular rates.   The McGill Method is based on the scientific and clinical findings of professor Stuart McGill and his team over the past 32 years. These investigations enhanced understanding as to how the spine and related tissues work, how they become damaged or painful or both, the best ways to rehabilitate and restore a foundation for pain-free activity, and finally, how to build high performance ability. WHO CAN ATTEND? The McGill Method courses are open for anyone to attend, and typically attract delegates from various health care and fitness professions. For example, physiotherapists, chiropractors, trainers, yoga instructors/masters, pilates instructors, sports medicine, medical doctors, physiatrists, coaches, strength coaches, massage therapists, exercise physiologists, students, athletic trainers certified, kinesiologists, and osteopaths, to name a few. COURSES OFFERED McGill Method Level 1: Foundation for the Pain-Free Back (Jan 30-31) This two-day course is geared for clinicians, trainers, coaches and performance specialists who wish to update their knowledge to the most recent developments in function of the lumbar spine – specifically how it works, becomes injured, and how this is linked to pain sensitivity. This is to develop an evidence based foundation for clinical decision making and to deliver methods to empower and heal their clients. You will learn: The foundations of how the spine works and becomes injured and/or painful How to interpret what clients are presenting to you Prevention of back disorders Approaches to rehabilitation Training methodologies for building the foundation for eventual back performance   After completion of the workshop you will feel empowered to provide guidance in the application of this knowledge to the clinic, workplace, rehabilitation centre, and sports field to reduce the risk of injury, optimize healing of the patient, and build ultimate back performance in the athlete.   McGill Method Level 2: Assessment - Converging on a Precise Diagnosis (Feb. 1) In this one-day course geared for advanced clinicians and those who assess back pained patients, you will learn:          Recent developments in assessing the low back of the most challenging patients          How to create linkages to corrective and therapeutic exercises and drills          Skills in pain provocation tests to reveal the pain mechanism          Technique development with workshops at the assessment table throughout the day Attendees will hone their manual skills, together with clinical reasoning skills, work-shopping tests both on and off the exam table.
