What is Really Going on with Your Patients with Back Pain? Moving Them Forward
Speaker: Christopher J. Standaert, MD Clinical Professor Rehabilitation Medicine, Neurological Surgery, and Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, University of Washington
Back pain is the single leading cause of disability worldwide, according to the Global Burden of Disease 2010, and is one of the most common reasons for days away from work. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics says back injuries make up about 41% of ergonomic injury cases, and workers require a median seven days to recuperate. Join us on November 16, 2016 as Dr. Standaert discusses the diagnosis, treatment, multivariate issues, and long term care for back pain and injuries.
