Lab 2: The Right Tool for the Right Job:  Targeted Techniques for Testing and Treating People with Pain

While pain is a complex and challenging human experience, treating pain does not need to be complicated. Clinicians now have excellent tools to determine whether the patient before them is struggling with tissue-related pain, peripheral neurogenic dominant-pain or pain that is entrenched in the central nervous system. Once the prevailing nature of the problem is identified, we can treat the nervous system through skilled handling, movement and novel exercises that hone in on the correct target. In this lab session, participants will learn to test and treat a sensitive peripheral nervous system via neurodynamic techniques, as well as a sensitized central nervous system via graded motor imagery.
