Exercise For Chronic Pain
Exercise for Chronic Pain
Wednesday 18th April, 2018
Brighton Spine and Sports Clinic
441 Bay St, Brighton
In recent years, there has been a large body of evidence suggesting that an active approach to treating people with chronic pain is superior to using passive modalities. For many clinicians, this has lead to an increased utilisation of exercise as a therapeutic intervention in the management of chronic pain. However there is a still a lot of confusion about what exercise does and doesn't do for sufferers of chronic pain, when and how to implement therapeutic exercise appropriately and whether it actually works.
This seminar will cover:
• A literature review of relevant research covering efficacy and effectiveness of exercise for chronic pain
• An overview of the main mechanisms which exercise is likely to affect chronic pain
• How to implement therapeutic exercise into your clinical practice, particularly if you don't have access to exercise facilities on site
