Pain & the Brain - Bringing Contemporary Research to the Clinic
This one-day seminar is full of up-to-date information, collated from various international research sources, to help you understand pain mechanisms in the context of the brain and related physiological mechanisms.
Pain is complex.
People – and their brains – are complex!
As clinicians we have the task of identifying the source of pain in our clients, why the pain is being experienced and make clinical decisions as to the most effective way to problem-solve. How easy it would be if all patients presented with a straight forward pain presentation with a clear cause and a clear healing path back to full function. In reality, however, there are different pain mechanisms to identify with different problem-solving approaches to utilise. This one-day seminar is full of up-to-date information, collated from various international research sources, to help you understand pain mechanisms in the context of the brain and related physiological mechanisms. You will learn how to identify them and what the latest evidence is saying regarding aetiology and treatment approaches. This one day seminar provides a comprehensive overview. It is followed by a two day practical course on Primitive Reflex Inhibition and Sensorimotor Training for Recurrent Injuries and Chronic Pain.
- To know how to identify acute and chronic pain mechanisms in our patients
- To understand the different treatments necessary for each mechanism, based on the evidence to date.
