This webinar was featured during the 2015 ABMP Back Pain Summit. Back pain affects 8 out of every 10 people at some point in their lives, meaning that most massage therapists are likely to confront this issue regularly in their practices. Join clinical practitioner Clint Chandler for a discussion that explores common types of back pain, terminology used by the medical profession, the anatomical complexity of the spine, the biomechanics involved in spinal movements, and the mechanisms of back injury. This in-depth course includes demonstrations of several hands-on techniques.
