CLINICAL TRAINING & COMMUNICATION PROGRAM

MODULE 6 - PAIN IN THE FRAME

Did you know that the cost of pain to Western countries is greater than heart disease, diabetes and cancer combined? Freedom of movement of the human frame is a core component of a healthy and productive life and you are perfectly positioned to be the expert in this area.

We have drawn upon everything that CDI has done before to give you the most advanced training program that we have ever put together. We use cutting-edge ideas and concepts about pain to think our way through 5 clinical cases. Each of these cases is a masterclass in patient assessment, management and professional communication.

As a clinician your success is based upon your ability to think and to solve problems. But clinical thinking is hard, and fraught with contradictory information. CDI specialises in a practical, evidence-informed approach to modern practice - one that makes you proud to be a chiropractor.
UNDERSTANDING PAIN
THE LATEST INSIGHTS IN PAIN SCIENCE
Getting rid of pain is still the top priority for chiropractic patients. But what does it really mean? Together we are going to dissect the problem of pain - tendon pain, chronic back pain, shoulder pain, chronic neck pain, persistent headache. We will look closely at what the evidence is telling us - that all of these roads lead back to the brain. We'll focus on the neurological mechanisms lying beneath these conditions, driving our patients towards chronicity.

This Module is not simply a walk through a list of pathologies. After all, our patients commonly suffer stubborn pain in their frame in the absence of any obvious disease or degeneration. How often are the moving parts intact, yet the patient continues to function abnormally? Research now recognises that there are changes within the brain that lead to faulty motor control and limbic vigilance. This Module will help you to understand these functional impairments, and learn how to target them more accurately with a unique treatment approach.

WHAT DOES 'CASE-BASED LEARNING' MEAN?

The most effective way to take on-board new information is use it straight away to solve a problem! Case-based learning gives you knowledge that is formatted for immediate absorption. Information that you put on a shelf somewhere is of no real use to you. Each clinical scenario represents a common situation that you'd be expected to have great proficiency in managing.

The topics include:
  1. TENDONS AND CHRONIC PAIN
What are the most common causes of gluteal pain? What is the difference between tendinosis and tendinopathy? What is the most common site of hamstring injury and where do you specifically palpate for it? Why do hamstring tendons become chronically painful? Why do 20% of subjects diagnosed with hamstring injury lack any signs of damage to the muscle/tendon complex? Could lower back dysfunction predispose to actual hamstring injury - if so, how? What is the basis of recurrent and chronic tendon pain?
  1. CHRONIC SHOULDER PAIN
Traditional clinical thinking models focus heavily on local tissue pathology as the cause of shoulder pain, including rotator cuff tearing, labral damage and bursitis. But structural pathology on MRI is a poor predictor of pain. Why do 40% of the general population have asymptomatic cuff tears? Studies investigating prognosis have suggested that specific tissue diagnoses are not associated with clinical outcomes. Why? Structural change does not explain the response to therapeutic exercise - as clinical improvements are not accompanied by a corresponding change in observable structural pathology. So what is really happening?
  1. CHRONIC LOWER BACK PAIN
What are the major structures that cause chronic lower back pain? What is the difference between neuropathic and somatic pain? How can we use an MRI to predict whether a disc lesion is likely to resolve, or become an ongoing cause of chronic symptoms? What is the likelihood that a herniated nucleus will resorb over time? What is the general aim of surgery when addressing disc lesions and how effective is it? What criteria do you consider in order to decide and advise regarding surgery? What functional impairments are known to be associated with pain chronicity in the lower back? How does your management strategy address the peripheral and central mechanisms of chronic pain? Is it really all about weak 'core muscles'?
  1. CHRONIC NECK PAIN
What are the major pain generators in chronic neck pain? Why do patients feel stiff when their gross range of motion is normal? What functional deficits are associated with chronic neck pain? What is meant by 'sensorimotor' control? How do you create a management strategy to address both the peripheral and central mechanisms of pain?
  1. PERSISTENT HEADACHE
What is the difference between primary and secondary headaches? How would you distinguish a pathological cause of headache? What is the role of the cervical spine? How does tension-type headache differ from cervicogenic headache? What is the relationship between tension-type headache and migraine? What does a successful management program look like?
WHY SHOULD I ATTEND?

Being an expert means that you must continuously expand your thinking. Are you using the latest concepts, phrasing and language to help a patent understand their problem, and the goals of your treatment? If you cannot confidently answer 'yes' to this question, that's a great reason to join us.

Dr Anthony Nicholson will lead you through 13.5 hours of clinical problem solving, so that you can experience first hand the diagnostic decision making process.
CPD POINTS AWARDED
