Description

Do you have clients who describe their chronic pain like, “my back is KILLING me” or “I just want my life back”? They want a life that isn’t controlled by pain… before it limited their activity, interfered with their sleep, and prompted ongoing usage of pain meds. They want a life that isn’t based on fear of even greater pain and suffering…

For clients with chronic pain, even after the physical injury has healed, when the pain persists, the effects can be devastating.

Transfuse hope into your clients’ lives with these evidence–based interventions that work!

Join nationally recognized neuroplasticity expert Dr. Karen Pryor and Dr. Mica Foster as they provide an in-depth illustration of neuroanatomy that depicts how pain changes the brain. You’ll learn how the circuits integrate, and most importantly, how you can target your techniques to effectively mitigate pain. You’ll discover:

  • A framework to connect the missing links between physical injury and neurological integration
  • Neuroplasticity and manual therapy techniques for improved outcomes
  • Specific tools and strategies to treat pain patients more efficiently and effectively.

With this intensive training that brings together the physical, cognitive and behavioral aspects of pain, you’ll gain cutting–edge assessment and treatment techniques for complex chronic pain that you can use immediately in clinic.
