Course Description

International Spine and Pain Institute (ISPI) in partnership with Evidence In Motion (EIM), has designed a unique learning opportunity for PT’s and PTA’s to advance top of mind awareness to Choose PT first.

Pain is complex. New paradigms of pain such as neuromatrix, nerve sensitivity, endocrine and immune responses to pain and neuroplasticity have opened various exciting non-pharmacological options in the treatment of pain. One such approach is altering what patients think and believe about their pain. It is well established that patients often have faulty beliefs regarding pain, which consequently may increase fear, catastrophization, pain and disability. The paradox is that patients are interested in pain as well as how pain works. Growing evidence supports that teaching patients more about the neurophysiology and biology of pain allows for decreased pain, increased movement and function, various decreased psychometric measurements and higher compliance with therapy. This online  self-paced, self-study series of lectures, based on the latest neuroscience view of pain, aims to help health care providers update their knowledge of pain and apply is clinically today.
