Do you have patients that have had an injury or surgery and start with acute pain that have converted to chronic pain? How does this happen and what can we do about it? What role does neuroplasticity serve in treating chronic pain? As practitioners we treat pain, edema, restricted motion and function – what are we missing? This session will dive into the science of internal and/or external pain of the neck, back, upper and lower extremities. Pain is a private and individualized experience where subjective explanations from the patients may lead us in our treatment plans. Pain may have deeper roots than the wounds we see. Discover how to tap into pain directly at the source, the central nervous system vs treating the body with limited resolution of the chronic pain experience.
