This is the course I wish I had been able to take...
When I graduated physical therapy school, I was fascinated by the topic of persistent pain. Aside from my own chronic pain, I was confused and frustrated when working with patients who had chronic pain. Unfortunately, I struggled to find a course that would help me get up to speed on the topic - the pain science and the practical implementation.
I spent years trying to figure out how to provide effective therapy for patients with persistent pain. In my own learning journey, I sought out and consulted with leading pain scientists throughout the world to get their perspective, read hundreds of pain science articles, academic textbooks, and took advanced training courses in numerous rehabilitation approaches. This was all coupled with extensive trial and error in the clinic.
While I never found a perfect solution that works for all patients, I learned many valuable skills and a new style of clinical reasoning that has helped me overcome my own pain, and to assist hundreds of patients who came to me for therapy.
The course you are about to begin is designed to simplify the science, and help you become competent and confident in treating patients who have complex pain presentations. It's the course I wish I would have been able to take when I was a new grad.
I'm looking forward to learning together! Feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn, or send me an email with any questions that you have about the course.
