Chronic Pain Education (Therapists)
Date: Friday 26th April 2019
Time: 1.30 pm – 3.30 pm
Class size: 12 maximum
Suffering from chronic pain is awful and it can be a real struggle to find treatments that help.
But research from around the world has proven that simply learning about the new science of chronic pain is one of the most powerful and important things that people can do to improve their pain.
I qualified as a doctor in 1992 and worked as a GP in and around Abergavenny for the last 18 years. In 2015 I opened the Abergavenny Baker School of Artisan Breads where we eat, drink, chat and bake together in small groups. It’s relaxed, informal and very enjoyable.
The School of Pain Management offers a similar experience, but the emphasis is on learning about chronic pain. I use my knowledge and experience to explain the nerve pathways and risk factors for developing persistent pain and the skills and practices that patients can use to feel less pain and enjoy life more.
You will learn about:
- The nerve pathways in pain and what affects them
- Central Sensitisation
- Risk factors for developing chronic pain
- Therapeutic options for treating pain
Lunch and introductions at 1pm (ish)
