COURSE LOCATION AND DETAILS:
The Bridge Advanced Sports Therapy, 1979 111 Street, Edmonton, AB T8H 2G4
COURSE OUTLINES & OBJECTIVES:
McGill Method Level 1 -- Foundation: From the pain-free back
Dr. Stuart McGill updates delegates on the most recent developments in function of the lumbar spine – specifically how it works and how it becomes injured, and how this is linked to pain sensitivity. This is to develop an evidence based foundation for clinical decision making. Delegates will be provided with 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
Restoring a painful back begins with a detailed assessment. Dr. Stuart McGill demonstrates and teaches pain provocation through mechanical and neurological approaches to reveal the cause of pain. The algorithm is based on branching logic. Delegates will hone their manual skills, together with clinical reasoning skills, work-shopping tests both on and off the exam table. This forms the foundation for teaching the patient what to avoid, followed by progressions of corrective exercise. The second stage begins when pain is controlled, and the objectives shift to enhancing function and performance. This process will be taught through patient/athlete case studies.

McGill Method Level 3 -- High Performance Training
This one-day course is for advanced clinicians and performance specialists. Mechanisms and training techniques used with world-class athletes will be introduced and discussed. The development of movement/motor patterns, endurance, speed and power within the principles that minimize back injury, or exacerbation of existing injury are work-shopped. Quantifying the athletic demands, together with the current capabilities of the individual, influence program design. Specific topics include building resilience, training capacity and strength, and speed techniques within pain-free progressions. The day is comprised of three lectures and hands-on workshops.
