Many of our clients come in with both acute and chronic pain.
The best way to assist them in their healing path is to have a deeper understanding of the mechanism of pain, the reason for it physiologically and ways of relieving it when necessary.
This class will explore the pain pathway from the origin, all the way up to the recognition in the brain. Next the class will discuss the different types of pain; acute, chronic, nociceptive, inflammatory, dysfunctional and neuropathic, their etiology and mechanisms. Finally the class will explore the latest findings in pain research, the myriad of methods to interrupt the pain pathway, how these methods work and finally their indications and contraindications.
