Course Description

This is a modified, one-day overview of the popular ‘EXPLAIN PAIN’ seminar developed by David Butler and Lorimer Moseley and based upon the bestselling book ‘Explain Pain’. This presentation will introduce you to the core essentials of how the pain system works when there are injured tissues and nerves, and what happens in the brain in relation to pain experiences. The seminar is delivered in a way which is fun, easy to understand and immediately apply. You’ll be introduced to the newest knowledge about pain ‘neurotags’, ‘brain ignition nodes’, zinging and zapping nerves, smudging in the brain and backfiring nerves. You will hear about how the immune, sympathetic and stress systems are critical in pain experiences and that changing patient knowledge and understanding of this is an effective, evidence based treatment tool. Come learn how to get patients exercising their synapses in addition to their muscles!

Learning Objectives

Following completion of the course the participant will be able to:

  • To expand the clinical framework of rehabilitation via the paradigms of neuromatrix and pain mechanisms.
  • To teach biologically based pain management skills under a framework of the sciences of clinical reasoning and evidence from clinical trials, neurobiology and education research.
  • To reconceptualize pain in terms of modern neuroscience and philosophy.
  • To stimulate an urgent reappraisal of current thinking in rehabilitation, with benefits for all stakeholders in clinical outcomes - the patient, the therapist, the referrer and the payer.
  • To teach the core pain management skills of neuroscience education.
