Join one of the world’s most influential pain neuroscientists, Lorimer Moseley, as he shares advances in managing one of the greatest challenges in healthcare - pain. Expect current viewpoints and age-old philosophies to be challenged as we examine a new frontier of managing persistent pain. You will be provided with theoretical and reasoning models to guide modern science application in clinical practice. This clinical framework will assist in effective planning of patient recovery. Obtain tools to enable, empower and optimize patient recovery.
Join Stanford pain scientist, clinical psychologist, author and international speaker Beth Darnall, PhD, as she introduces Empowered Relief™. Empowered Relief™ is a NIH-funded single-session 2-hour intervention that rapidly equips participants with effective pain relief skills. Remarkably, this method may be delivered by ALL healthcare providers! Avoid a singular focus on interventional and procedural approaches to chronic pain management. Empowered Relief™ complements traditional treatment strategies for meaningful ‘whole-person’ pain management.
There is no such thing as an isolated injury in the body. There is no such thing as isolated healing. Chronic debilitating pain is solvable in most instances with the proper skillset and patient participation. Discover techniques to achieve sympathetic/parasympathetic balance of the nervous system to reduce persistent muscle tension and pain. Additionally, we will examine how the abdomen relates to full body chronic pain issues and identify an elusive cause of chronic symptoms. Don’t miss this opportunity to expand your clinical skillset and improve treatment outcomes.
Learn directly from one of the great contributors to pain neuroscience, Adriaan Louw, PT, PhD. Our understanding of pain and how we process persistent pain may offer more clinical value than the actual underlying physical pathology! Discover the evolution and evidence for pain neuroscience education (PNE) AND get clear guidance for screening and when to apply PNE. You’ll leave with an understanding of how to incorporate PNE, where, and why.
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? We will dive into the science of internal and/or external pain of the neck, back, upper and lower extremities. 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 pain experience.
Two individuals experience the exact same painful stimulus yet report very different pain ratings and experiences. Why? The answer requires further examination of the multi-faceted experience of pain involving perception, performance, emotional disturbance and socioeconomic influence. Next, we will address common challenges of treating patients who arrive with reports of seeing numerous doctors and therapists with little to no results. Discover where your client ‘is’ by learning the language of the nervous system in easy and clinically relevant terms.
Respiratory training offers an incredibly powerful tool for pain relief, improved performance, lowered stress, improved sleep, and more. We will examine how to develop a personalized, targeted respiratory training program that offers meaningful and measurable results utilizing the neurology of both voluntary and reflexive breathing. A concise framework focused on the ability to quickly evaluate multiple breathing patterns and the ability to reduce pain and movement dysfunction utilizing targeted breathing exercises will be introduced with guaranteed results.
Patients arrive with the objective to “fix” and “eliminate” pain. Emphasizing direct treatment and elimination of chronic pain often opens a portal to exhaustion, frustration and even increased pain intensity. The paradigm shift exits in recognition we cannot always control the pain which enters our life; however, we do have control over how we relate to pain. Embracing age old principles of mindfulness, meditation and mindful movement, including Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Yoga, allows a shift in our relationship with chronic, somatic pain. This experiential session combines proven methods with modern science to provide a multitude of health and wellness benefits.
As pain management strategies shift from use of opioids, patients are looking for alternate options. Are you armed with the current research to have an informed conversation with your patient regarding cannabinoid science? A review of current literature will help us determine who, where and when CBD could be used to alleviate the pain experience. We will discuss the idea of placebo as well as links to sleep and stress response as contributing factors to pain while examining the role and application of cannabinoid science in pain management.
Remaining removed from the suffering of another is a great challenge for providers. Practitioners can unconsciously “take on” the pain of their patients and begin to manifest a variety of symptoms leading to “burnout” and “compassion fatigue”. Guided by some of the general principles of the ancient Indian medical system of Ayurveda, we will explore a selection of “conscious caring” practices. By the end of this session, we will create and use a selection of tools to assist in restoring harmony and productivity to the provider caring for people in pain.
We’re that confident you'll find this learning experience to be all that's promised and more than you expected.
