Novel Movement Opportunities Using The Edgework Approach
About The Course:
Novel movements describe a process of altering the context and manner in which painful movements are performed in order to change the result from one of pain and limitation. Edgework describes a specific process of attending to movement during the interventions that are used in the clinic such that self-efficacy and expansion of movement are facilitated.
During this conference will be discussed the interactive process of care presented with specific applications of current pain science and theory to the clinic. The approach of moving within specific novel contexts, allowing for new outputs to previously painful movements, will be presented as well as a specific process that can overlay existing models of care.
The mission of the San Diego Pain Summit is to help clinicians learn ways to create frameworks based on current pain research so they can develop effective pain management programs for their patients. Together we are working to bridge the chasm to develop effective pain management programs for our patients.
This course was recorded at a multi-disciplinary conference where clinicians learn how to apply current pain research into clinical practice.
Who Is This Course For:
This course is relevant to all healthcare professionals.
