intro

Low back pain is an-ever growing national problem which requires specialist knowledge and training in order to understand and effectively treat it. The prevalence of this condition has increased significantly in recent decades, which is why an advanced qualification like the Level 4 Low Back Pain Certificate is in such demand.

To provide some context as to just how necessary this qualification is, recent surveys suggest that 49% of the adult population in the UK suffer from low back pain lasting at least 24 hours. This in-turn causes the NHS to spend more than £1bn a year on related costs and treatment. It’s also estimated that approximately 2.8 million work days are lost each year because of low back pain-related issues.

Over the duration of the course, which includes a combination of home study, one-to-one tutor support sessions, and a three-day practical training course, you’ll gain all the necessary knowledge and skills to be able to effectively help those suffering with acute and chronic low back pain.

Once qualified, a number of employment and career opportunities open up for you. A popular path to consider is working in a formal exercise referral scheme, providing specialist advice and instruction to patients suffering from low back pain/disorders. Alternatively, you could become part of a multidisciplinary team, taking referrals from physiotherapists, chiropractors, osteopaths or other specialists operating in this field. This qualification also perfectly suits fitness instructors and personal trainers looking to widen the range of clients they can work with.

    LV2 & LV3 Personal trainer

    My experience have been amazing with them, all the teachers and tutors where really nice and always ready to help with everything. What I liked most was the practical assesments where you challenge yourself through 'real' practice which you learn a lot. The books are easy to read and also they just don't give you the certificate you have to work for it.
