About This Course

Brought to you in partnership with:

Significant research in the pain neurosciences and biomechanics field often appears to undermine the reasoning and justifications for many of the traditional therapeutic approaches and techniques of the many rehabilitation professions. By addressing both the weaknesses and strengths of the biomechanical approach we can see that treatment can be much simpler, congruent with the cognitive, neuroscience approach and best evidenced based practice.


This course provides a framework to utilize an alternative biomechanical approach that blends neuroscience pain education. This course teaches the therapist how to teach patients about pain science in a treatment framework that still utilizes specific/corrective exercise and manual therapy. Therapists are taught a model of treatment that simplifies the assessment process and the treatment.

Course Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
  • Provide assessment techniques for partitioning the role of biomechanics and therapeutic neuroscience in the treatment of pain and injury
  • Demonstrate how biomechanical treatments and explanations can address the multidimensional nature of pain
  • Provide exercise prescription that is informed by biomechanics and therapeutic neuroscience
  • Learn different methods of applying therapeutic neuroscience to a traditional biomedically based practice
  • Learn the practical applications of the best research on tendon pathology, symptom modification and graded motor exposure

Speaker Biography 

Greg Lehman, PT, DC, MSc in Spine Biomechanics is a physiotherapist and chiropractor with MSc in Spine Biomechanics from the world renowned spine biomechanics laboratory at the University of Waterloo.  Greg has been both a researcher and clinician for more than a decade and enjoys the interplay between therapeutic neuroscience education and biomechanics to change the beliefs and physical capacity of his patients.  Greg specializes in both sport injuries and persistent pain cases as the approach is surprisingly similar.
