This is the fourth in a series of courses titled Weird and Wonderful Strategies that EVERY Physio should know to Effectively Treat Low Back Pain (LBP).

This series is hosted by Carolyn Vandyken in collaboration with Embodia. Each course in the series will focus on a different topic, specifically how bladder health, endometriosis, inflammation, and cognitive discrimination play a role in low back pain as well as a course that addresses low back pain in labour and delivery.

These specific topics are hosted by Carolyn Vandyken with special guests Jilly Bond, Jill Mueller, Sinéad Dufour, and Ibbie Afolabi. 

The fourth course of the series is presented by Carolyn Vandyken, founder of Reframe Rehab and a physiotherapist who teaches pelvic health, orthopaedics, and more. She is also the recipient of multiple awards for her contribution to education and women’s health. 

You can register for individual courses or the entire series! On checkout, you will be presented with the option to purchase all of the courses in this series at a discount.

Course 4: The RESOLVE study: An Evidence-Based Approach to Cognitive Sensory Discrimination in Low Back Pain (LBP)

The RESOLVE trial (2022) has now given us Level 1 evidence that addressing sensorimotor dysregulation in low back pain (LBP) is an important component of addressing LBP within a biopsychosocial approach.

In this fourth course, you will learn more about the RESOLVE trial, which includes an intervention that consists of pain science-based education, neuroscience-informed pre-movement treatments, and precision-focused and feedback-enriched graded movement and loading. You will also learn how the FreMantle questionnaire that measures sensorimotor dysregulation can be used in clinical practice.

Understand more about what the RESOLVE trial shows us and learn how to incorporate Cognitive Sensory Discrimination training into your clinical practice.

Take sensorimotor reintegration one step further by exploring sensory-rich motor planning exercises into your clinical practice for low back pain and pelvic pain.

You will never look at exercise prescription the same way again.


Learning Objectives for Course 4

In this course presented by Carolyn Vandyken, participants will learn:

  1. To assess the effect of graded sensorimotor retraining on pain intensity in patients with CLBP
  2. To consider the application of this evidence-based approach to pelvic pain



This online course is for all physiotherapists and rehabilitation professionals who treat patients with low back pain (LBP). This includes healthcare professionals who work in private outpatient practice, homecare, and emergency care. This course is for all orthopaedic clinicians, not just pelvic floor clinicians.
