James M. Elliott

PT, PhD, FAPTA

James completed his PhD at the University of Queensland, Australia (UQ) in 2007 and a post-doctoral fellowship (2008-2010) at UQ. The focus of his interdisciplinary laboratory is to quantify altered spinal cord anatomy and whole-body skeletal muscle degeneration as potential markers of recovery following spinal trauma. He has been successful as an independent investigator as in evidence of being a CI/PI/Collaborator/Consultant on over $30 million in research funding, more than 200 peer-reviewed publications, and numerous speaking invitations at interdisciplinary conferences on a national and international level. Accordingly, his work has resulted in external recognition as a global expert in traumatic injuries.

Currently, Prof. Elliott is the Director the Kolling Institute, the oldest (103 years) medical research institute in New South Wales, Australia and Academic Director Allied Health and Public Health, The University of Sydney and Northern Sydney Local Health District.

He is currently working with a vast network of collaborators, worldwide, to build the world's leading well-being index and better health outcomes for all

Trauma-Informed Assessment and Evaluation of Musculoskeletal Pain

Presented by James M. Elliott, PT, PhD, FAPTA and David M. Walton, PT, PhD

Trauma-Informed Assessment and Evaluation of Musculoskeletal Pain

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 54 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 29 Minutes

Clinical assessment and evaluation of human symptoms and function are necessary parts of person-centered and targeted rehabilitation practice. However, evaluation also involves an implicit element of judgment regarding the "normality" of another person. This is an example of how power imbalances are enacted and reinforced in clinical practice. This course will introduce learners to concepts, tools, and techniques of trauma-informed practice that can be implemented during clinical assessment and evaluation toward an ethic of partnership and empowerment for all.

Trauma-Informed Treatment of Neck Pain

Presented by James M. Elliott, PT, PhD, FAPTA and David M. Walton, PT, PhD

Trauma-Informed Treatment of Neck Pain

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 60 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 23 Minutes

In this course, leaders in the field of neck pain assessment, prognosis, and treatment will engage learners in thinking differently about the tools, techniques, approaches, and goals of management for people with neck pain.

The neck is a unique site of the body, permitting large freedom of motion while protecting critical life-sustaining structures. It is a site of both power and vulnerability and is often in the forefront of both interpersonal connection and experiences of violence and trauma. The traditional "body as machine" approach to objective and emotionally neutral intervention for neck pain risks overlooking important lived experiences of the neck as a site of both pain and of pleasure and, in some instances, increases the risk of triggering experiences of prior trauma. Drs. Walton and Elliott will integrate their knowledge of the evidence base for neck pain management with a focus on trauma-informed care principles to arm learners with the necessary skills and competencies to (a) understand the neck as a unique site of potential trauma, (b) recognize signs of traumatic triggering, and (c) consider how clinical practice guidelines and protocols can be adapted for application to the post-trauma patient with neck pain.
