Description

This 2 day course will focus on reconceptualizing pain, manual therapy and the role of RMT's in healthcare. The focus will be on how to use manual and movement techniques in a manner that is consistent with the evidence and theories of how biopsychosocial factors can impact pain and its related disability.

The course provides the opportunity to learn how modifications of traditional manual therapy practices can increase success and improve patient outcomes. It aims to decrease practitioner stress and increase confidence when working with routine and complex patients. We will thoroughly discuss the science of pain and how to incorporate effective therapeutic pain management approaches into daily practice. The course will challenge many misconceptions about pain and manual therapy as we learn the basics of utilizing a biopsychosocial framework in massage therapy practice.

Traditional manual and physical therapy beleifs will be challenged throughout the weekend so participants can understand how a biopsychosocial approach is often more beneficial than a pathoanatomical one.

Lecture, discussion, observation, practical applications and small group work will be used to emphasize key learning objectives.

Learning objectives:

  • Pain has more to do with sensitivity than damage

  • Tissue health and biomechanics become less important the longer someone experiences pain.

  • Understanding of the importance of forming a therapeutic relationship through patient interaction and contextual effects

  • Understanding of how existing manual and practical skills can be effectively modified to improve patient outcomes

  • Understanding of new evidence-based frameworks on persistent pain to enhance their practice, improve patient outcomes, and decrease practitioner stress
