Course Description

This class is designed to update attendees on the latest evidence and clinical application of therapeutic neuroscience education (TNE) for patients in pain.

Current best evidence has shown that educational strategies utilizing neurobiology and neurophysiology are able to reduce pain, increase function, reduce fear, improve movement and change brain activation during pain experiences. TNE changes patient beliefs regarding their pain, thus reducing the threat of pain.

This class will discuss the evolution of TNE, why it is needed in patient care and the clinical application of TNE for patients with acute, sub-acute and chronic pain. Special features include various metaphors, images, examples and case studies explaining neuroscience to patients. In addition, the class will cover clinical issues such as compliance, pacing exercise and activity, incorporation of TNE with traditional movement based therapy, billing and insurance reimbursement concerns and delivering TNE in busy clinical environments.

This class is a must for all professionals dealing with patients in pain.
