In recent years, the International Spine and Pain Institute (ISPI) has noticed a big interest in teaching people about pain. Various clinical trials and systematic reviews have showcased significant evidence for reshaping a patient’s view of pain.
The evidence shows that pain neuroscience education helps decrease pain, disability, movement limitations and pain catastrophization. Despite the scientific activity, there remains a huge disconnect with conference audiences — the immediate clinical application of pain neuroscience education.
Dr. Adriaan Louw aims to bridge the disconnect by showing attendees how to implement pain neuroscience education into everyday physical therapy practice. His clinical research team has conducted and published numerous studies examining the clinical aspects of pain neuroscience education:
Who needs it? What should be taught? When is an optimal time? How should it be delivered?
It’s time for a true clinical application webinar of pain neuroscience education. This session will teach attendees simple user-friendly metaphors, drawings, illustrations and examples which powerfully affect a patient’s beliefs and attitudes regarding their pain.
This presentation, in partnership with Evidence In Motion, spans all realms of physical therapy and aims to help people suffering in pain.
Following the education session, we invite you to join Dr. Adriaan Louw, Program Director and CEO of ISPI, as he provides an overview of ISPI’s certification programs: Certified Spinal Manual Therapist; Therapeutic Pain Specialist Certification; NEW International Therapeutic Pain Certification.
