Event description

Description

This course will explain the history and evolution of our current understanding of pain including its clinical relevance and application of the modern pain neuroscience paradigm. It will elaborate on the importance of an updated approach to treat pain and describe the underlying physiological changes that are associated with persistent pain. An in-depth examination and explanation will be provided regarding the work Keith Smart in relation to mechanistic based classifications of musculoskeletal pain into nociceptive, peripheral neurogenic, and central sensitization categories. Review of the literature will highlight appropriate practice guidelines and recommendations for evaluation and treatment of each classification which will include diagnostic imaging correlation to pain, specific language usage with patients, the concept of thought viruses, pain neuroscience education, neurodynamics, graded motor imagery, and overall facilitating patient empowerment.


Objectives:


1. Develop working understanding of the history of pain, modern pain science, and how we have gotten to where we are today.


2. Learn how to effectively perform a patient evaluation under pain science paradigm to maximize therapeutic alliance.


3. Interpret subjective and objective presentation and be able to classify pain into primary classification as proposed by Keith Smart.


4. Understand strategies to decrease a patient’s perceived threat during evaluation and treatment.


5. Develop skilled plans to apply to tx to each pain presentation including pain neuroscience education, exercise, manual therapy, neurodynamics, and GMI.
