APTA has partnered with IFOMPT to provide this course. Please provide feedback so that we can continue offering these types of courses.

Pain Neuroscience Education teaches us that pain comes from the brain, and that pain and injury (tissue damage) are not synonymous. If pain comes from the brain, then why do manual therapy? Doesn’t manual therapy foster dependence upon the provider? Doesn’t it focus on anatomical issues, i.e. the tissues? Can pain neuroscience and manual therapy co-exist? Can manual therapy be a way to give the brain and helping hand?

In this course, Dr. Louie Puentedura will lead these discussions and provide an evidence-informed rationale for merging manual therapy and pain neuroscience education.
