Event description

Description

This course was last held in Toronto in September 2016 and we were full. (limited to 30 participants)

Course Description

At its simplest, this is a BIOMECHANICS and PAIN SCIENCE course. Ideally, we've distilled the best of both to get the best approach to pain and injury management. This course has been taught throughout the world with the aim of simplifying the biomechanical approach to injury and pain management. A simplified, yet strongly evidenced based biomechanical approach, allows the therapist to develop skills that address all areas of the biopsychosocial contributors to the pain experience.

This course teaches When Biomechanics Matters and fits this approach into Therapeutic Neuroscience Education framework.

Traditional rehabilitation practice is steeped in the biomedical model of treating pain and injuries. While the biopyschosocial model of care is touted as being the superior approach it is often difficult to incorporate traditional biomechanical training within this model. There is the fear that therapists become psychotherapists. The aim of this course is to help reconcile and reconceptualize the biomechanical approach. You will learn that you need not throw the baby out with the bath water when you embrace the biopsychosocial (BPS) approach. Remember, the BPS model starts with "Bio": you will learn how biomechanics matters and how pain science education and cognition changing can fit together.

Special topics include:

- finding the key messages of pain science for specific patient needs

- "just load it" and "comprehensive capacity" - an evidenced based and simplified approach to exercise program

- symptom modification and graded exposure reconceptualizing of exercise prescription


This course is great for anyone working with people in pain or injuries. Physiotherapists, Chiros, Massage Therapists , Chiropractors, Osteopaths, Sport Therapists, Movement Pros/Teachers and Strength Coaches are welcome.


Very rarely a course is cancelled due to lack of interest. We typically make this decision about 4 weeks out from the course. If you are making travel arrangements it may be best to wait until this time.

Because we know that plans change refunds available if cancelled 3 weeks or more before the course starting date.
