An Introduction to the Pain Truth Certification Program by the Advanced Physical Therapy Education Institute (APTEI)
Hello! This is Bahram Jam and I really look forward to being part of this webinar.
Too often as clinicians we feel bad about our clinical skills when we "fail to help" those who seek our care in desperate need of pain relief. I certainly felt that if only I took more courses on manual therapy, biomechanics, soft tissue release or strengthening then I would be able to help them better.
I WAS WRONG.
The reason some of my patients were not responding to my treatments was because I was trying to "fix a structure", when in fact they did NOT NEED ANYTHING FIXED!
This webinar is for all healthcare providers who wish to have the ability to more effectively assist their patients in their recovery. The primary aim of this short webinar will be to learn skills to identify patients who may be centrally sensitized.
- To review the 3 basic pain mechanism classifications
- To learn how to more confidently identify those presenting with central sensitization using 12 simple questions
- To review clinical option for assisting the recovery of those presenting with central sensitization, such as The Pain Truth program
WARNING: Space is limited to the first 500 clinicians who register.
