In this 2-hour webinar series, physiotherapist and pain scientist, Gill Bedwell, provides an overview of the physiological mechanisms of pain and an explanation of different types of pain: nociceptive, neuropathic and nociplastic.
She will also lead an interesting discussion on how to identify different pain presentations in patients.
In part 2, Gill questions whether we, as physiotherapists, are providing targeted treatment for pain? Or are we throwing multiple treatments at our patients in the hope that one actually targets the pathology? Gill unpacks what targeted treatment is and provides an interesting argument for the need to incorporate targeted treatment of pain in your every day practice.
She will also explain the physiological mechanisms of some commonly used treatment modalities for pain.
