Presenter: Terry Stewart

The two previous webinars in this series identified and discussed some of the peripheral and central mechanisms associated with the generation of pain. The rationale was to identify the relationship between the levels of tissue injury and pain are not always neat and at times pain can persist without any apparent underlying tissue cause.

Pain is complex and dynamic and accurately defining an identifiable point where acute pain progresses to chronic pain can be very difficult. Acute and chronic pain are generally classified by time frame and whether or not the pain can be resolved effectively but, it may be more useful to consider pain as a dynamic continuum between acute and chronic that is often influenced by a complex combination of biological, psychological and social factors.

 This webinar will focus on:

  • A brief review of peripheral and central mechanisms of pain and how this may relate to the progression of acute and chronic pain states.

  • Discuss the role of osteopathy in the prevention of acute to chronic pain in our patients.

  • Hands off might be the best approach. Can we consider education as an effective treatment approach?

  • At what point should a practitioner contemplate referring a patient for assistance with managing contributing factors that are beyond an osteopath’s scope of practice?
