DESCRIPTION: This course will give the PT a method of analysis and a wealth of practical information to evaluate more than just mechanical factors that affect pain and symptoms and disease progression.  It will cover pain sensitization and the role of the brain and spinal cord as well as peripheral sensitization. It will also cover issues such as toxicity, mold, autoimmune conditions, leaky gut, nutrition, stress and many other factors that affect the musculoskeletal system. When this material is learned the PT will be able to be much more effective with the same number of PT visits. You will learn a lot about nutrition as well as supplements.   You will learn about which modalities are most effective for pain.  In fact, you will be able to be less stressed and more confident treating more complex patients and patients that will not respond to mechanical treatment only.

Description:  Over the last 40 years much has happened in PT research.  Manual Therapy, Motor Control and now Pain Science have dominated the research in respective decades.  Does one take precedence over the other in terms of clinical practice?  No!  The well rounded clinician will understand how all of these pieces of the puzzle fit together to offer cutting edge treatments for the myriad of clients that we serve.
In this course, the learner will explore the research behind each of these entities and learn, using sound clinical reasoning , what “tool” to utilize and when, depending on the presentation of the patient.  Evaluation and treatment skills will be taught with regards to pain science so that the learner feels confident incorporating these principles into their clinical practice.  This course is useful for all clients but will especially help the clinician dealing with chronic pain patients.
