Testimonials

Our online learning methods result in genuine and sustained improvements in treatment outcomes. The following testimonials are from practitioners using the clinical protocols from the STOPS trials and our Online Learning Modules:


"I have completed a couple of the modules provided by Kalsi and wish to provide some feedback,

The STOPS protocol presents an evidence-based approach to the treatment of low back conditions. The learning modules provide an up-to-date summary of the latest clinical evidence for the pathophysiology, assessment and treatment of low back issues. Learning of the material is consolidated in the case studies via critical evaluation and reasoning. Combined with prior experiences, the material should be applied to clinical practice straight away and I highly recommend the modules as a learning tool for any practitioner wishing to remain up-to-date with current research aiming for the best possible outcomes in their patients."

"Being involved with the STOPS trials has definitely improved my management of patients with low back pain. It has given be greater confidence as clinician, knowing that the treatment I am providing is evidence based. The structure of the treatment protocols has helped develop my clinical reasoning skills and the ongoing clinical mentoring ensures I keep applying these principles with all of my patients"


 “I endeavour to use the STOPS assessment protocol and classification system with all my lumbar spine patients as do all the physios in our clinic now. The diagnosis algorithm is easy to follow and reproducible between physios providing consistency of care within a clinic. Now results support the use of this classification system when patients are treated specifically for their diagnosis we can be confident that we are providing the best of care.

I think the most effective tool from STOPS is the provision of a clear and comprehensive pathoanatomical explanation of an individual’s injury. The patient then has a clear understanding of why different mechanical loads are likely to effect them positively or negatively and consequently sets up compliance with all other aspects of their program and self management as relevance applies!  This has now become a key component of my treatment plan with all patients I see”


 “Using the STOPS protocols has changed the way I assess and treat low back pain patients.  The assessment protocols have incorporated multiple up to date assessment methods, making it directly useful in my current practice.  It allows me to quickly identify clinical patterns and treat them accordingly.  The treatment guidelines form a great framework for clinical reasoning and it is promising to see that the trial results have shown clinically meaningful outcomes”


"I have visited kalsi.com.au and wish to provide some feedback. Firstly, congratulations on the venture and hope it continues to grow the way your team has envisioned.

With regards to the business tools, I have sampled the KPI manager spreadsheet which is available from the website on a trial basis. Once I figured out how to use it, I found it easy-to-use and not at all complicated."

 “By using the STOPS protocols my treatment for low back pain and leg pain is targeted to the specific underlying pathoanatomical condition and is implemented in a clear and consistent manner.  The result for me is better outcomes for my patients and greater confidence that my treatment will help.

I was pleased that STOPS protocols are not about "recipe" treatments but rather facilitating critical clinical reasoning at each step of the assessment and then the treatment program.  The treatment approach is genuinely bio-psychosocial, targeting the pathoanatomical and neurophysiological aspects of the condition as well as addressing potentially maladaptive recovery beliefs, fear avoidance behaviour, developing the patients self efficacy, and identifying social barriers to recovery.  I can thoroughly recommend STOPS if you want improve your clinical expertise. If like me, you will find that it will not only improve your outcomes for patients with low back and leg pain, but also provide you the foundations to better treat all musculoskeletal conditions”
