Pain Science Event

Hosted by: Memorial Hermann Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation

Speaker: Adriaan Louw, PT, PhD, CSMT

This introduction to Pain Science Education course is designed to provide participants with an introduction to latest evidence and clinical application of therapeutic neuroscience education for patients in pain. Current best evidence has shown that neuroscience educational strategies utilizing neurobiology and neurophysiology are able to reduce pain, increase function, reduce fear and catastrophization, improve movement, and change cognitions and brain activation during pain experiences. This course will also cover perioperative pain. This newly designed preoperative pain neuroscience education program has shown that teaching patients more about pain prior to surgery leads various positive outcomes including significant decrease is healthcare utilization after surgery, patient satisfaction and more. This class aims to introduce attendees to the development of the preoperative neuroscience education session including content, delivery methods, and clinical application for surgeries such as total knee replacement and lumbar spine surgery.
