Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)


Pain management often takes a multidisciplinary approach to minimize or eliminate pain. The therapist is faced with a patient in chronic pain has several important tasks. The goals include increasing physical activity, eliminating in safe medication use, and learning lifestyle behaviours that work towards wellness. Among the many tasks, the first is obviously the assessment of the pain and its various causes, including physical and psychological components. In most cases it is impossible to completely alleviate pain and thus a management plan has to be agreed with the patient. Furthermore, the clinician will need expert guidance in understanding and applying the broad range of available therapies. The purpose of this presentation is to provide the theoretical basis of therapeutic modalities and the acquisition of skills necessary to correctly and safely use modalities clinically. The delegates will also find information helpful for improved decision making regarding the utility of each modality in the pain management continuum. The author will also explain how to apply each therapy, why and when each modality would prove safe and effective.
