Course Description

CEU Course Description

Lumbar disc herniation (LDH) with radiculopathy is one of the most common diagnoses encountered in orthopedic clinical practice and it is believed to be a major contributor to the estimated 60-80% lifetime incidence of low back pain.  The goal of this CEU course is to compare the effects of two dissimilar manual therapy techniques via neural tissue mobilization and Mulligan’s spinal mobilization with limb movement (SMWLM) in patients with L4/L5 - L5/S1 lumbar disc herniation associated with radiculopathy.


CEU Course Objectives

  1. Explain what may be caused by sustained mechanical compression for a longer duration and discuss why this is an important factor when choosing the technique.
  2. Compare and contrast neural tissue mobilization and traditional segmental joint mobilization techniques in the management of lumbar radiculopathy.
  3. Examine the association between the size of the disc herniation and the severity of the patient’s pain.
