To update delegates on some recent developments in enhancing performance of formerly pained and injured backs.
To give practice and technique development with workshops throughout the day.
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 comprises of 3 lectures and 3 hands-on workshops.
This presentation synthesizes many research articles. However, the information has been synthesized into three books:
1. Back Mechanic, written for the lay public, guides the reader through an assessment of their pain triggers. Then it coaches them what not to do to desensitize the pain and build movement capacity. Then it guides them on exercises to build a pain-free foundation for movement.
2. McGill, S.M. Ultimate back fitness and performance, Sixth Edition, Backfitpro Inc, 2017
Available at: www.backfitpro.com
Ultimate Back Fitness describes the science of back function as it pertains to training for higher performance function (either occupational or athletic), provides algorithms for examining the critical components of different activities to identify what needs training, and the full exercise spectrum and progression from corrective exercise to stabilization exercise, endurance training, true strength development and speed, power and agility enhancement. Techniques used by some of the top athletes in the world are quantified and described.
3. McGill, S.M. Low Back Disorders: Evidence based prevention and rehabilitation – Third Edition, Human Kinetics Publishers, Champaign USA, 2016
Low Back Disorders, written for clinicians and scientists, describes the science of back function, prevention of back troubles and rehabilitative approaches. It has a robust description of patient assessment involving provocative testing to create a precise diagnosis that guides each patient on the most effective path for them.
Three DVD’s illustrating the Assessment and Therapeutic exercise techniques and Performance enhancing techniques used in the clinical portion of the course are also available:
McGill, S.M. (2012) The Ultimate back: Assessment and therapeutic exercise, Second Edition
McGill, S.M. (2010) Enhancing Performance, www.backfitpro.com
