Why should to you learn the Boot Camp Program for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis (LSS)?

  • LSS is a leading cause of pain, disability and loss of independence in people over the age of 65
  • With the aging population and because people are living longer we are experiencing a soaring rise in the number of people suffering from LSS
  • The dominant features in LSS is pain and limited walking ability (look around and see the number of people walking with canes, walkers, scooters and wheelchairs)
  • Healthcare professionals are well positioned by their training and skills to make a significant impact in improving walking ability and quality of life in people with LSS. They should and can be the experts in non-operative treatment of LSS.
  • You will learn a step-by-step treatment program for patient with LSS that was developed at Mount Sinai Hospital and The University of Toronto. The program focuses on hands-on practical application of the program.
  • The program is currently being used at the Spinal Stenosis Clinic at Mount Sinai Hospital
  • You will learn the skills and receive the tools to start the program first day back at your practice.
  • It is an evidence-based program that has been tested formally on 50 consecutive patients (award winning publication in JMPT January 2015) and results have been very impressive.
  • In two clinical trials, one at the University of Toronto and another at the University if Pittsburgh, The Boot Camp Program demonstrated impressive superior clinical outcomes.
  • Acquire the knowledge, skills and tools to be the expert in the non operative management of LSS in your community


Lecture portion of workshop:

Lumbar Spinal Stenosis (LSS)

LSS is a leading cause of pain, disability and loss of independence in people over the age of 65. With the aging population the number of people suffering from LSS is expected to grow exponentially. The dominant limitation in LSS is restricted walking ability. The goals of the lecture are

1. To provide an overview of the epidemiology of LSS

2. How to effectively diagnosis LSS

3. To be aware of other conditions that mimic LSS and how to make a comprehensive differential diagnosis

4. To understand when to use imaging and which imaging is best

5. To be aware of the evidence for effective non operative treatments

6. To introduction the boot camp program for DLSS and it rationale


Hands-on Workshop

The Boot Camp Program for DLSS is a comprehensive non-operative approach developed at Mount Sinai Hospital and the University of Toronto.

The Boot camp program is a multi-modal approach suited for practitioners who use manual therapy. The approach is focused on improving functional status especially walking ability. The program is directed to the multi-faceted aspects of DLSS that includes physical impairments (patho-anatomy, spinal stiffness, lower extremity weakness and overall deconditioning), pathophysiology (neuro-ischemia) and psychosocial aspects (poor expectations and depression).

The workshop will provide a demonstration of the Boot Camp Program and a step-by-step hands on training on how to perform all necessary patient exercises, manual therapy techniques and how to provide patents with self-management strategies. At the end of the workshop the learner will be able to implement the Boot Camp Program in their office/clinic and how to effectively monitor patient progress.
