Summary

Surgical interventions for management of lumbar spinal stenosis and lumbar disc herniation are increasing. Physical therapists often play a critical role in patient recovery following selected surgical interventions. Knowledge of the surgical procedures used is important to provide care for our patients. Furthermore, the expected outcomes of the selected surgical procedure are fundamental for maximizing patient recovery. Physical therapy evaluation and treatment are dependent on the timing of the surgical procedure and patient activity tolerance. We will use lecture, patient cases and small group discussions to accomplish the following:


1. Understanding the basics of surgical procedures commonly used in the lumbar spine.
2. Performing suitable physical therapy evaluation with knowledge of surgical procedures.
3. Developing appropriate physical therapy treatment plan for optimal patient outcomes.
4. Providing strategies for managing patients with ongoing symptoms following surgical procedures
