Presenter: Associate Professor Bruce Mitchell

Most patients with chronic mechanical low back pain respond to exercise therapy and multimodal therapy. What can we do for the patients who do not? Associate Professor Bruce Mitchell will discuss the new protocol for low back pain as well as present the data on ReActiv8, a restorative neurostimulation for this cohort of patients.
