Course Coordinator UQ’s School of Human Movement Studies lecturer Dr Emma Beckman said clients would receive a comprehensive lower back assessment and an individualised exercise rehabilitation program.
“The assessment and individualised program will consider the clients occupation and recreational activities, and will provide advice on postural correction, education and instruction,” Dr Beckman said.
Fourth-year undergraduates and Masters of Clinical Exercise Physiology students studying a degree in Exercise and Sport Sciences will run the service under the supervision of experienced staff.
The Low Back Pain and Prevention Program will start on 15 April and will run for six consecutive weeks.
