Description
How much do you know about pain? Certainly you know that it’s an unpleasant experience often associated with injury and something most of us try to avoid. But did you know that pain is generated by the brain 100% of the time? Or that pain is not an accurate measure of the health and status of our tissues and joints? In this course you will learn how the brain generates pain in response to perceptions rather than reality; how changes in the body systems can allow pain to persist and become chronic; and how you can change clients’ perceptions and reduce or eliminate their pain while improving their movement effectiveness. Understanding pain and perception is not a box to be checked while working with people in pain, the principles established in this course are foundational to how we practice and interact with all people.
