Pain Science Transformed into Clinical Practice
Description: This on-demand webinar will review pain mechanism classification system suggested by current pain science literature and clinical practice application. Diagnostic labels are typically used to classify patients for appropriate decision-making; however, providing a pathoanatomic diagnosis for pain syndromes does not fully-enable evidence-based treatment decision-making for pain rehabilitation. The session will focus on decision-making with regard to pain classification and then present mounting evidence to assist with rehabilitation treatment choices within the primary pain mechanisms. It will integrate research and clinical discussion using pain literature and case examples that will be used to illustrate the clinical decision making to identify the most relevant pain mechanism interventions.
