Pain: Translating Neuroscience into Clinical Practice

Movement, neurophysiology, psychology, social interactions, health and lifestyle- why do these affect pain? Can you assess their contribution to each individual’s presentation and offer a tailored treatment?

Course length: 1 full day

Testimonial:

"While visiting the MACP stall at the Physio UK 2018 conference I was fortunate enough to win a free place on the MACP 'Pain: Translating neuroscience into clinical practice course' at Loughborough this November.  The course provided me with a great opportunity to consolidate and update knowledge in this area.  I thought this course was well organised, interactive and excellent at helping clinicians integrate current knowledge into their clinical practice.  I would recommend the course to anyone who is interested in this subject. Thank you MACP!” Paul Eddy

Course Outline: 

Assessing and treating from these multiple dimensions is challenging to do without a solid understanding of the science behind clinical presentations. This workshop will deepen clinicians’ understanding of pain neuroscience to help clarify complexity in daily practice. Importantly, this course highlights how to integrate inputs from the body (peripheral inputs) and the brain and nervous system to guide clinical reasoning and develop treatment strategies reflective of contemporary pain science. This includes approaches to physical activity and manual therapy, as well as pain education and strategies to reduce pain-related fear and anxiety.

 Facilitator/s: this will be both or just 1 of the tutors depending on course numbers:

Dr Niamh Moloney is a Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist (SMISCP) who combines over 20 years of clinical and academic experience. She completed her Master of Manipulative Therapy (Curtin University) in 2003. Her PhD (2012) investigated pain and sensory profiles in people with neck and arm pain, with her subsequent research focusing on assessment of pain profiles and its impact on prognosis and treatment response. She has over 50 peer-reviewed publications and has presented her research widely. She has taught in the area of pain and musculoskeletal physiotherapy since 2005 at both undergraduate and post-graduate levels.

Dr Martin Rabey is a Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist and Fellow of the Australian College of Physiotherapists. He completed his Master of Manipulative Therapy (Curtin University) in 2000 and was awarded Fellowship of the Australian College of Physiotherapists in 2009. His PhD (2016), completed at Curtin University in Perth, explored the complex interactions between multiple dimensions (pain sensitivity, psychological, health and lifestyle, movement, behaviour, demographics, socioeconomics) associated with persistent low back pain. Following this, he was part of a team researching novel interventions for persistent low back pain at Neuroscience Research Australia. He has over 25 peer-reviewed publications and has presented his research widely. He has taught in the area of musculoskeletal physiotherapy and pain since 2001, at under- and post-graduate levels, including specialization training programmes.
