Course Description:
Have you ever wondered how to implement all the “Pain Science” evidence into your practice? Have you ever felt lost in working out how best to help your clients and patients? We know that a biopsychosocial approach is the Gold Standard of providing healthcare but what does that look like in practice?

In response to these and many other questions, we have developed this course to help clinicians and fitness professionals be able to help their clients navigate their way through painful conditions. In taking this course, we hope to take you on a practical journey, implementing the principles we have learned from the research into pain but applying it in the clinic in simple ways.

Please note, this is NOT a “technique” class where you will learn “the best techniques” to help SIJ or shoulder or back pain for example.

This class is one where you will learn to think about people with pain and yourself as a health or fitness professional and how you can be the best person to help them in the situation they find themselves in.

Will be covering the following questions during the course

  • “How does what I believe affect how I help?”
  • “What do I need to understand to help a person with pain?”
  • “What am I supposed to do?”
  • “How do I dose and deliver pain science?”

So whether you are a brand new graduate or someone who has been in the game a couple of decades, we have designed this course to help you help your clients who have pain.

Are you ready to challenge your beliefs and how you do things? Are you ready to change? Are you ready to try something different?

If so, then this course is for you! Book now...
