Learn About Back Health Care

Learn to Understand and Help People with Back Issues

Understand the essentials of Back Health Care. This course is an ideal professional development for anyone who is supporting somebody with back health problems or for someone who has back problems.

In this course you will discover the anatomy of the back, as well as the many holistic approaches applied to back care and helping manage back issues and back pain, that hinder our ability to carry out simple daily activities.

Back pain may result from mechanical issues or from poor posture.  Occasionally this can be a symptom of something completely different.

As we start to consider all aspects of back pain, it is important to remember that the person with the back pain probably already knows some of the causes of their pain.  However, they may not be aware of how specific activities could be contributing to continuing pain.  While at the same time, other activities, exercises, treatment forms or medications could combine to alleviate the pain and treat the underlying causes.
