Update on Evidence Based Approach to Low Back Pain

Seminar Center for Excellence in the Neurosciences Seminar Series

Andry Vleeming, Ph.D.

Clinical Anatomist, Founder of Spine and Joint Centre, Rotterdam, Netherlands


Dr. Vleeming is the founder of the Spine and Joint Centre in Rotterdam, Netherlands; a specialized clinic to treat patients with severe chronic spinal problems. Dr. Vleeming’s anatomical and biomechanical research in the lumbopelvic region has been accepted worldwide and incorporated into rehabilitation programs for patients with lumbopelvic dysfunction. This research is the foundation for rehabilitation at the Spine and Joint Centre.
In addition, he is the Chairman of the Interdisciplinary World Congress on Low Back and Pelvic Pain. To date, there have been six such congresses which have seen health professionals from all disciplines come together to discuss and develop future research ideas for a clearer understanding of function and dysfunction withtin the low back and pelvis. Dr. Vleeming has adapted the scientific research of this team into an evidence based clinical model for assessment and treatment of lumbopelvic dysfunction. The protocol for diagnosis and rehabilitation follows sound scientific principles.
