  • Is there an ideal sitting posture, and does changing sitting behaviour change CLBP?
  • Manual therapy in CLBP
  • Lumbar kyhposis/lordosis
  • Physical and psychological interventions for CLBP
  • The effect of exercise on CLBP
  • Movement patterns and retraining in chronic pain states
  • The challenges of talking to patients about chronic pain states
