Lecture

The lived experience of back related leg pain, and a multidisciplinary approach to management.

Updated terms and Conditions - Covid-19 Vaccinations:
For your safety and that of our community, all APA staff are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. It is also a requirement that all presenters, tutors, convenors and registrants (or the equivalent) are fully vaccinated with a TGA approved COVID-19 vaccine in order to attend a face to face event by 1 November 2021 for NSW, VIC, TAS events and 17 December 2021 for WA, SA, QLD, ACT, NT events. Proof of double vaccination or medical exemption, will be required when checking in to the event.

We hear a lot about non-specific low back pain, but what about specific back pain? Specifically, what about back-related leg pain?

Join the WA MPA as we close the year in style with what is anticipated to be a continuing education event for the ages. It's not often we get to host four esteemed speakers in a panel discussion format! It's even rarer for one of the panel members, Dr Ivan Lin, to have a personal experience of significant low back-related leg pain that required surgery.

With 3 PhDs, a Neurosurgeon, a Professor and Specialist Physio, as well as a physio undergoing their specialisation training, there is no shortage of clinically relevant, patient-centred, and evidence-informed expertise. This is an incredibly exciting opportunity to mingle with your colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere and learn insights that will fill you with confidence to identify and manage back-related leg pain.

In the context of Ivan's personal story, we will be discussing topics such as:

  • Clinical features that help direct diagnosis or management
  • What factors contribute to a recommendation for MRI or surgery?
  • When do we refer to a psychologist?
  • Surgical and non-surgical options
  • Imaging
  • Common psychological factors and an overview of options to address these.
  • Lessons learnt having personally experienced back-related leg pain.

Venue: The Left Bank Fremantle
