  • Preoperative Pain Neuroscience Education for Knees and Shoulders
  • Preoperative Pain Neuroscience Education for Lumbar Surgery

  • Spinal surgery in the US is ever-increasing. Outcome data indicates nearly 40% of patients have persistent pain and disability following lumbar surgery. Postoperative rehabilitation following lumbar surgery has shown little efficacy in decreasing postoperative pain and disability and it has been shown that patients are not readily sent to physical therapy after lumbar surgery. Preoperative education has shown some effect in altering anxiety, stress and fear associated with surgery. Recent research in non-surgical musculoskeletal pain has shown evidence for neuroscience education. Neuroscience education aims to help patients develop a greater understanding of their pain, the biology behind their pain and how pain is processed. A newly designed preoperative neuroscience education program by physical therapists has recently been developed and have not only shown immediate post-education improvements in psychometric measures, beliefs and expectations for surgery and physical movements, but also significant reduction of brain activity associated with painful tasks in patients scheduled for lumbar surgery. Additionally, the preoperative neuroscience education resulted in superior outcomes following surgery compared to patients receiving traditional surgeon-led education in regards to back pain, leg pain, fear, catastrophization, function and postoperative healthcare utilization. This course aims to introduce attendees to the development of the preoperative neuroscience education session, the content, delivery methods and clinical application of such a program for lumbar surgery.

PNE+: Nonpharmacological Approach to Treating Pain

Pain is complex and new paradigms of pain, i.e., neuromatrix, nerve sensitivity, endocrine and immune responses to pain and neuroplasticity has pushed physical therapy to the foreground in the treatment of pain. Physical therapy is uniquely positioned to treat pain, exhibiting various important skillsets such as knowledge of movement, biology, exercise and psychology, let alone the important clinical aspects of time with patients, hands-on treatment, cost-effectiveness and a large workforce. This course aims to show physical therapists, via a modern understanding of pain, how physical therapy can help patients afflicted with various seemingly disabling pain states. Various common pathologies such as low back pain, whiplash associated disorders, carpal tunnel syndrome, complex regional pain, knee arthroscopy and more will be discussed from a pain perspective to illustrate the vast number of strategies physical therapists have to treat patients affected by pain.
