Whether you are a new graduate or an advanced clinician, Pain serries CE will provide an answer and guidance to better understand pain and select the most effective interventions. Pain can no longer be considered merely a symptom. It is currently considered to be a disease. The evaluator’s learning, expertise, or specialty will determine how the evaluator thinks about pain. Soft tissues have long been considered as the major source of pain and disability. Soft tissues constitute the site of impairment leading functional limitation, disability, and pain.

Pain Management, what works! (Part I)
Pain Management, what works! (Part 1)
The most highly satisfied patients are those with their pain eliminated or under control. That means high quality of life and increase patient referrals. I believe this course will help therapy clinicians to be at the forefront of pain management, to actively engage with patients with pain. Part I of the pain series, the focus will be on the concept of pain, assessment, and barriers to pain management. When a patient tells you I took many Tylenols for my knee pain and my pain still the same, in this situation, the kind of knee pain is beyond what Tylenol can do, in this course, clinicians will learn why pain would NOT respond to medications including opioid. Peripheral and central sensitization are critical area in pain management. If pain is centrally sensitized, would manual therapy help?
Clinicians will learn:
- The most updated definition of pain
- The pathophysiologic mechanisms involved in pain perception.
- The science behind pain subjectivity, low and high tolerance to pain stimulus explained).
- The process of central and peripheral sensitization
- The current state of knowledge in functional MRI (fMRI) research related to pain with primary focus on clinical studies.
- Elements of the pain assessment process, tools used for pain assessment, and strategies for overcoming barriers to pain assessment.
