ABOUT THE COURSE

After multiple failed attempts at various physio, chiro, massage therapy treatments and injections at pain clinics, a desperate patient named Pat with neck and back pain seeks your help. Pat reports of having a fall at work 5 years ago and a car accident 3 years ago which exacerbated everything. “Thanks to the a-hole who rear ended me, I’ve never been the same!”

All MRIs and medical investigations have been negative but she feels the disc bulges may be the problem. The doctors have however diagnosed Pat with Fibromyalgia which she has extensively Googled.

She has been off work for the past 3 years, is divorced, lives alone, under financial stress and currently has no hobbies or activities that she enjoys.

She has also been diagnosed with depression that is being “controlled” by medications.

What can YOU do for Pat? IFC? More manual therapy? Core exercises? Advice to just live with the pain and move on?

There are great opportunities for PTs to assist patients such as Pat. The objective of this half-day course is to teach PTs 10 strategies to help patients similar to Pat in their recovery. Recovery does not necessarily mean eliminating pain, but focus is on improving the quality of life and reducing the “suffering” associated with pain.
