Case #2 features a stay-at-home mom with a 15 year history of right sided low back pain. My guest expert is Dr. Stephen Heffner of Wellsboro, Pennsylvania, USA.
In this case Dr. Heffner shares many great insights, including his thoughts on non-organic testing through psychometric testing and how that might guide his interaction and treatment of the patient. He gives a great, concise break-down of what he learned in this patient's history and what he's thinking in terms of a provisional classification heading into the examination. You'll also hear Dr. Heffner discuss in the examination section his thoughts on choosing to test provocation of the patient's symptoms or reduction and what you should essentially always do after applying the clinician overpressure procedures. And, he offers tips on force alternatives for repeated-extension-in-standing to ensure end range is achieved and situations when extra time and effort should be spent on education on posture correction. This a great practical case packed with clinical insights from the only chiropractor who is actively teaching in the McKenzie Institute USA. (28min and 52 seconds)
