Course Description
This practical and unique course will help you to develop a framework for your clinical practice that teaches you how to assess and treat central pain mechanisms, since they are the main driver of pain that lasts longer than three months. Tissue-based treatment is important in order to change the biological inputs into the nervous system, but how do we move beyond just treating the tissues? Mind-body connection has been a popular topic over the past decade when looking at treating pain in a clinical setting but it has not always been linked to pain education. Learn how educating patients about the nervous system, qi gong, yoga, guided relaxation and guided imagery fit into your clinical practice in order to down regulate the sensitive nervous system. Learn how to identify potential threats that upregulate your patient’s nervous systems, and contribute to their ongoing pain state. This course will give you a deep understanding of the brain and the nervous system, and how to target both of them appropriately using evidence-based practice.

Exercises that you can share with your patients Include:

  • Organ Qi Gong
  • Upper Qi Gong
  • Breathing Qi Gong
  • Lower Qi Gong
  • Mapping: Barrel Rolling
  • Alternate Nose Breathing

Pelvic Health Solutions provides continuing education courses for a variety of practitioners, including mentoring and clinical resources for therapists to utilize with their patients.
