Palladian's Distinguished Clinicians Present at APTA's National CSM Convention in San Diego on 'Evidenced Informed Management of Chronic Low Back Pain Without Surgery'
Date:3/16/2010

WEST SENECA, N.Y., March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Palladian Health, LLC, Chief Scientific Officer, Simon Dagenais, DC, PhD and members of Palladian's Clinical Advisory Board, including Chairperson, Scott Haldeman, DC, MD, PhD, and John Mayer, DC, PhD, along with William Quillen, PT, PhD, FACSM, Director of the School of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Sciences at the University of South Florida, were prominent participants at the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) Combined Sections Meeting (CSM) held in San Diego February 17 – 20, 2010, and led a scientific session on 'Evidenced Informed Management of Chronic Low Back Pain Without Surgery.'

This team of experts in management of muscular skeletal disease presented the evidence supporting each of the major treatment categories that are widely used for chronic low back pain, including supervised exercise, physical modalities, manual therapies, medications, injections, and surgery. Dr. Dagenais, a leading musculoskeletal epidemiologist emphasized that "no one single approach has yet to demonstrate definitive superiority to the alternatives available for chronic low back pain." The result, he pointed out, makes it very challenging for clinicians, policy makers, insurers, and patients to make truly informed decisions as to the most effective, safest, and least costly treatment option. The primary goal of that session was to bring scientific evidence to the forefront of the discussion to ensure that decision makers are informed about its current strengths and limitations.

Drs. Dagenais, Haldeman, and Mayer have previously given similar presentations on this topic to other professional groups with an interest in managing low back pain, including the American Back Society, Florida Chiropractic Association, North American Spine Society, American Association of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and the Association of Chiropractic Colleges Research Agenda Conference, to help reduce some of the existing barriers that may exist between the many professions involved in caring for patients with spinal conditions. The presenters took a moment to acknowledge the many contributions of Dr. Vert Mooney, an orthopedic spine surgeon from the University of California at San Diego, who was instrumental to developing multidisciplinary rehabilitation of spinal disorders, including chronic low back pain. Dr. Mooney passed away in 2009.
