After injury the peripheral signs and symptoms are easily identified and treatable, but what happens if your patient does not get better because the Central Symptoms were not identified? Entrapment neuropathies, repetitive stress injuries, soft tissue and joint problems, neck and low back pain, complex regional pain syndrome, post surgical pain, phantom limb pain as well as neurovascular injuries do not fit the peripheral pattern and the clinical signs and symptoms are related to central involvement or central sensitization. Pain that moves around and spreads to another limb, abnormal sensations, as well as unusual movement patterns are a few signs of the changes that have occurred in the brain. They must be addressed. Advances in Neuroscience have now identified treatment strategies aimed at correcting the way the Brain processes information and the abnormal brain changes. Mirror therapy and graded motor imagery must be added to the treatment program to retain the brain by targeting brain processing mechanisms to achieve effective outcomes.
At the conclusion of the course the participant will be able to:
