This course will challenge the therapist to make a paradigm shift in identifying pain mechanisms especially Central Sensitization then to develop an effective treatment to improve outcomes. With Central Sensitization the treatment must be aimed at top-down treatment treating the brain changes with the cortical disorganization. These top down treatments strategies must be aimed at correcting the way the brain is processing input with persistent pain. Research has revealed that clinical dysfunctions in persistent pain such as impaired tactile sensation, inability to move, inability to discriminate what objects are present as well as abnormal movement such as dystonia can be improved along with the persistent pain by using newer strategies. Since the body and mind are connected and both involved in persistent pain, treatment must address these cognitive and behavioral changes. Treatment strategies presented in treating central sensitization are : 1. Neuroscience education 2. Calming the brain 3. Don't fire painful neurotags 4. Training the brain. Will be presented and can be utilized immediately in clinical treatment.

  • Identify types of pain mechanisms
