The immune system is coming into focus as being a key player in the experience of pain and fatigue. This presentation will explore the role of the immune system in managing inflammation and how pro-inflammatory states, following injury or an infection (such a Covid-19), can lead to a sensitized nervous system and result in pain and fatigue. The clinical implications of managing patients with sensitized neuroimmune systems, who present with joint pain, will be discussed.
