Description

Despite the habitual use of analgesics, your patients are still in pain. Sometimes, disabling pain.

The pressure is immense – YOU (therapist) are supposed to eliminate their pain.

Move. Massage. Mobilize. Grind. You’ve done everything that you can do to help them…but have they? What if you were able to give them the tools they need to reframe their pain – and get back to doing the things they love!

These patients are highly receptive to the idea of trying something new. They are open to change because they need something that will work. And that’s where you come in.

Dr. Joe Lavacca will bring an evidence-based approach to chronic pain management and will explore:

  • Step-by-step guide to assessment that will integrate the bio-psychosocial model
  • Red flags you are overlooking – and how to tailor your treatment plan to them
  • Progression and regression strategies to achieve patient goals
  • Mind-body practices that will improve functional outcomes

With an in-depth exploration into best practices and communication tactics, you’ll quickly develop buy-in from your patients that will enhance the therapeutic alliance. You’ll gain skills and techniques you can implement immediately to truly bridge the gap between mind and body rehabilitation.
