Course Title: Modern Pain Sciences: Manual Therapy’s Keys to Motivation, Input and Plan

Date: December 7th, 2014

Location: Pittsburgh, PA

Faculty: Joseph Brence, PT, DPT, COMT, FAAOMPT, DAC & Francois Prizinski, PT, DPT, OCS, COMT, FAAOMPT, DAC

Seminar Description: This course is designed to provide a biopsychosocial insight into the emerging neuro-scientific revolution of pain science, particularly as it relates to plasticity of the brain and the dynamics of the nervous system. Modern concepts of pain neurophysiology will be taught which are vital in the care of every one of our patients’ “painful” conditions. This course will assist the modern manual therapist on how to examine, evaluate and treat the physical health of the nervous system. It is geared toward practicing clinicians who want to learn how to effectively discern when pain is likely due to nociception, peripheral neuropathy or central sensitivity and how to approach with treatment. Additional intervention emphasis is placed on neurodynamics, engaging social forces to communicate with patients and imagery to reduce their painful experience. This is an intermediate level course.

Duration: 8 contact hours

Cost: $300.00, use promo code Snyder10 to save 10%!
