From FEAR to SAFETY - How to Create a Person Centered Approach for Back Pain

May 14, 2024 - 20:00 (EDT)
1 hour


This live webinar is designed to help you empower people with back pain to move through FEAR and into SAFETY so they can return to what they love with confidence.

  • What do you do when a patient shows fear around their exercise plan?
  • How do you get patients with back pain over the compliance hurdle?
  • How confident do you feel in holding space for and addressing one's fear around back pain?
  • How quickly are you willing to progress someone who has persistent back pain?

SAFETY is far more than the old paradigm of “safe movements and postures for back pain”.  Learning SAFETY will empower your clinical decision-making in treating people with persistent back pain. 

Join Melanie Connell, PT, MPT, and Reframe Rehab for this free live webinar: From FEAR to SAFETY  - How to Create a Person-Centered Approach for Back Pain.
