This course focuses on enhancing the participant’s knowledge and understanding of how pain works and how it can impact those affected by it. In addition, an emphasis is placed on the clinical reasoning processes and technical skills related to effective patient communication, clinical management, and pain neuroscience education. The format of this course is a 6-week self-paced on-line learning experience followed by a 1-day live lab. You must complete the on-line course before participating in the lab so ensure enough time when you choose the live lab date at registration.
Following the in-person lab, the participant will be able to:
-Reconceptualize pain and understand pain behaviors according to Modern Pain Science principles
-Gain a more thorough understanding of current pain neuroscience and biopsychosocial principles to improve your clinical decision making
-Improve your communication style to enhance engagement and build motivation for change across a range of populations
-Successfully integrate practical and effective pain neuroscience education with your current clinical treatment including advanced neurodynamics, Graded Motor Imagery and evidence-based manual therapy
-Learn how to adapt your current practice and be more comfortable in your communication and application of manual therapy techniques, movement-based activities and therapeutic exercise.
