San Antonio, TX  78247  USA

Course Description:

Description This 2 day/15 hour class is designed to update attendees on the latest evidence and clinical application of therapeutic neuroscience education for patients in pain. Current best evidence has shown that neuroscience educational strategies utilizing neurobiology and neurophysiology are able to reduce pain, increase function, reduce fear and catastrophization, and improve movement and change cognitions and brain activation during pain experiences. Therapeutic neuroscience education changes patient beliefs regarding their pain, thus reducing the threat of pain. This class will discuss the evolution of therapeutic neuroscience education, why neuroscience education is needed in physical therapy and, more importantly, the clinical application and implementation of therapeutic neuroscience education for patients with acute, sub-acute and chronic pain. Special features include various metaphors, images, examples and case studies explaining neuroscience to patients in pain. In addition, the class will cover clinical issues such as compliance, pacing exercise and activity, incorporation of therapeutic neuroscience education with traditional movement based therapy, billing and insurance reimbursement concerns and delivering therapeutic neuroscience education in busy, time-constrained clinical environments. This class is a must for all therapists dealing with patients in pain.
