This two-day overview course covers information critical to the assessment, clinical reasoning, and treatment of patients with musculoskeletal pain. Participants will learn to assess and diagnose pain mechanisms as they relate to the dominant peripheral and central nervous system mechanisms. A Pain Mechanism Classification System (PMCS) will be introduced, discussed, and applied to multiple pain paper/video case studies and/or live patient demonstrations. Peripheral Nervous System (PNS) neurodynamic evaluation and treatment will be discussed, demonstrated, and practiced for peripheral neurogenic pain mechanisms including spasticity management. Central Nervous System (CNS) sensory and motor evaluation tests, patient rated outcome measures, psychometrics tools, and treatment strategies will be discussed, demonstrated, and practiced for all CNS pain mechanisms.
