Description

While a multitude of non-pharmacologic treatments boast reasonably compelling evidence to reduce pain in the short term, there are a few that stand out as pillars to truly transform the health and wellbeing of people struggling with complex and/or chronic pain conditions.

Essential fundamentals of treating pain, including understanding pain as an output will be presented. Topics covered include pain neuroscience education (PNE), sleep, movement, and goal setting. Strategies that assist in calming a sensitive nervous system will also be presented. Observe a demonstration of PNE as well as a discussion about where passive treatments like manual therapy and dry needling fit into the care of people with persistent pain. Finally, learn where passive treatments like manual therapy and dry needling fit into a comprehensive chronic pain management treatment plan.
