The Art & Science of Patient Expectations
Have you ever wondered why some patients get better no matter what you do, while other patients don't seem to make any progress even with the best treatment?
In this course we will explore how pain expectations (e.g. placebos and nocebos) influence pain symptoms. We will then show how to integrate these concepts into clinical practice to enhance your patient's outcomes.
Many healthcare professionals acknowledge the role of pain related fear, but don't feel equipped to help patients overcome these fears. In this course you will learn new discoveries about pain related fear AND practical tools to help patients re-engage in meaningful physical activity.
The Patient's Understanding of the problem
In this course, we will explore the biology of how a patient's understanding of their pain condition influences pain perception and treatment outcomes. Your will learn how to help patients recontextualize pain (without just giving them a lecture). We will focus on using the principles and tools of motivational interviewing to overcome common clinical obstacles.
Simplifying Meditation, Hypnosis & BREATH-WORK
In this course we will take a deep dive into the topic of meditation, hypnosis, and breath-work (pranayama), with a focus on practical strategies for teaching pain specific techniques to patients. We will also share an updated perspective on biofeedback in the 21st century, and address the common challenges in teaching "mind-body" techniques in the clinic.
Exercising with persistent pain
Exercise is the gold standard for chronic pain, yet it seems to make so many patients feel worse. In this course, we will explore the pain science of exercise, and strategies to make it easier for patients. We will also lean an entirely new framework for exercise that utilizes stretching, motor control training, and strengthening from a non-biomechanical pain science perspective.
The New Science of Pain
