This two-day course focuses on critical clinical reasoning principles for non-pharmacy pain science patient education and therapeutic exercise interventions for spasticity and pain management involving neurologically impaired patients. Recent literature review for pain and spasticity in neurologically impaired patients suggests the need for new thinking toward interventions with a focus on non-pharmacy interventions. Patient testimony and video cases will be utilized to help demonstrate the clinical importance of providing non-pharmacy spasticity and pain management interventions. Spasticity is often an expression of peripheral nerve irritation in the neurologically impaired patient and found to respond to a Pain Mechanism Classification System (PMCS) for management and cure. Applying the principles of a PMCS to diagnosis of the dominating mechanism for spasticity and pain can help the clinician determine specific patient education and exercise interventions. This course provides workshops in Spine Repeated Movement Testing, Neurodynamic Evaluation and Exercise selection, and Developmental Staging to address skills necessary for classification of dominating PNS and CNS mechanisms. This classification allows for greater specificity in pain science patient education and therapeutic exercise for spasticity and pain interventions. Participants will learn clinical reasoning skills using subjective and objective characteristics for classification of trapped, tight, and centrally mediated spasticity and pain.
