Presenter: Terry Stewart

Pain is one of the primary reasons the public will seek treatment from an osteopath. If we are to help our patients who are suffering both acute and chronic pain, it makes sense we should have an excellent understanding of what pain is, how pain is created and how it can progress from an acute to a chronic state. This webinar is the first in a series of three and focused on:

  • Nociceptors

  • Nociception

  • Peripheral sensitisation

  • Increased states of tissue sensitivity such as hyperalgesia

  • The theories of labelled line and convergence and how they contribute to pain
