FALLBERICHT: AMERICAN-FOOTBALL-SPIELER MIT RÜCKENSCHMERZEN Fehlende Richtlinien für den RTP bei Low Back Pain, auf starren Zeitvorgaben basierenden Protokollen und fehlende Evidenz für die Assessments erschweren es Therapeuten, den passenden Behandlungsplan zu entwickeln. Warum also in der Therapie nicht einfach an Symptomen und Mechanik orientieren? Genau das macht ein McKenzie-Therapeut, zu dem ein junger Footballspieler mit LBP kommt. Die Parameter des Therapeuten: Directional Preference und Zentralisationsphänomen.
