What everyone working with back pain needs to know about Cauda equina syndrome
Cauda equina syndrome (CES) is a rare condition that affects the nerves in the spine supplying the bladder, bowel and sexual function. Identification and subsequent urgent action is required to avoid permanent damage to these essential organs. Delays in diagnosis can have devastating and life changing consequences for patients and result in high cost negligence claims.

This one hour webinar will be of interest to any health professional treating patients with low back pain, particularly those seeing this patient group in pre-surgical settings. We will cover:
• Definition of Cauda Equina Syndrome
• Presenting Signs and symptoms
• Examination for CES
• Evidence relating to CES
• Pathways of Care
• Medico-legal issues relating to CES

Who should attend: clinicians, physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, nursing staff, in fact anyone likely to come in to contact with people with back pain.
