Teaching People About Pain: Understanding and Addressing Pain in Health Care
September 6, 2014
 Adriaan Louw, PT, PhD, CSMT
Co-Owner – The Ortho Spine and Pain Clinic
Co-founder and CEO of the International Spine & Pain Institute

Pain is complex and interesting to patients.  New paradigms of pain (i.e. neuromatrix, nerve sensitivity, endocrine and immune responses to pain) and neuroplasticity have pushed physical therapy to the foreground in the treatment of pain. This course aims to show, via a modern understanding of pain, how physical therapy can help patients afflicted with various seemingly disabling pain states. This course will not only teach attendees the evidence of neuroscience education, but a step-by-step clinical application of teaching patients more about pain.
