Event Details

The February 23rd course in Harrisburg was a HUGE success! Here are some testimonials from the attendees:

"It was the best class I’ve ever attended. Very informative, and the instructor was amazing. Definitely a class you should attend! Thanks PCA, for providing this opportunity!" — Dr. Nathan Laubach

“Using a research based step by step program to treat spinal stenosis over six weeks is invaluable for my practice, my patients, and the bottom line of my practice. Don’t miss this opportunity to see Dr. Ammendolia lecture in Philadelphia March 9th!”  — Dr. Roy Love

“The info gained from this seminar will be put into practice Monday morning. My stenosis patients will certainly benefit immensely!” — Dr. Louis Simek

“Phenomenal presentation of very useful information that I will be introducing to my patients on Monday!”— Dr. Robert Pinto

“You walk away from this program feeling completely capable of treating spinal stenosis with a great protocol.” — Dr. Kayla Wagoner

Dr. Carlo Ammendolia has performed extensive research on LSS to develop this program, which has been published in the Archives of Physical Medicine and most recently in JAMA. 

In just one day (8 CE), Dr. Ammendolia will provide step-by-step 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 participant will be able to implement the Boot Camp Program in their clinic.  

Why should 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
  • 3 million Canadians and over 20 million Americans will suffer from LSS in the next 15 years
  • 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)
  • It is an evidence-based program that was recently tested in a randomized controlled clinical trial that demonstrated large and sustainable benefits in walking ability, overall function and pain.  Another study of the Boot Camp program evaluated 50 consecutive patients (award winning publication in JMPT January 2015) with very impressive outcomes; and a recent follow-up study showed that the positive outcomes were maintained for at least 3.5 years.
  • Chiropractors 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.
