This is a live online course for all clinicians who treat persistent pain, regardless of discipline including physiotherapists, occupational therapists, kinesiologists, fitness trainers, chiropractors and any other movement specialists.

Canada and US
Thursdays 6:00 - 8:30 PM EST / 3:00 - 5:00 PM PST • September 23, 30 and October 7th

Details

When: Thursdays 6:00 - 8:30 PM EST / 3:00 - 5:00 PM PST • September 23, 30 and October 7th

This live, online class will span a 3-week period for 2.5 hours on a weekly basis.

Where: From the comfort of your favorite armchair; you will be paired with a lab partner who will work alongside you in learning the material.

How: All you need to take this live, online course is a Zoom account. We encourage you to sign up for your free Zoom account before the first session. You will receive your Zoom meeting link two weeks before the course begins.

Syllabus

At the end of this course, participants will develop solid skills in order to confidently:

  • Assess body image using the Fremantle Questionnaires as it relates to changes in sensory-motor representation; you have to measure sensory-motor changes in order to treat them.
  • Prioritize which components of central pain mechanisms to address with individual persistent pain patients (review of SAD CLLIFSS). One size exercise prescription does NOT fit all.
  • Understand how changes in sensory-motor representation within a sensitized nervous system require us to move beyond typical therapeutic stretching and strengthening exercises.
  • Develop therapeutic skills for addressing sensory-motor changes including novel movement strategies for all of the major joints in the body.
  • Teach your patients to create ease of movement using novel movement approaches.Increase your patient’s variability of movement using a functional approach to exercise.

Handouts and audiovisual exercises are included in the cost of the course for simple and effective integration within your clinical practice. This is a lecture-based but predominantly lab-based course. The audiovisual exercises can also be purchased through Embodia Academy for easier patient prescription. You will receive a coupon code to apply towards this one-time resource fee through Embodia Academy should you choose to use their exercise prescription app.

Benefits

Have you ever been frustrated by muscle tension and pain that eases temporarily with treatment or exercise only to return quite quickly?  Persistent pain leads to changes in the cortical mapping areas of the brain leading to sensory-motor dysregulation. Everything that we do is mapped in our brain for ease of movement and function.  But what happens when these maps have a pain neurotag (protective pain response) attached to them?  Our default strategies or maps become linked with protection and pain and it becomes a never-ending cycle.  Novel and non-threatening exercises that engage the sensory-motor cortex are designed to address this very common problem.  Dr. Ben Wand and other researchers have demonstrated that sensory-motor dysregulation is a nearly universal problem in persistent LBP, shoulder pain, neck pain and knee pain.  This course is designed to help you develop a diverse toolbox of sensory-motor regulation exercises to reset muscle tension and pain to its normal, “unprotected” state. This is a great course for kinesthetic learners – you will experience everything firsthand.

A blend of visualization and sensory-based movement programs based on a combination of Feldenkrais and Franklin concepts forms the “remapping component” of this course. As therapists, most of us do not have the time, energy or resources to become certified practitioners in these specialized movement practices. This course takes the wisdom/techniques from each of these practices and puts it into a patient-centred, rehabilitation-focused format that is easy to teach, and enjoyable for your patients.  

These exercises create excellent patient compliance because they are novel, enjoyable and effective, especially when there are documented changes in sensory-motor representation.

Jodie Pulsifer

Jodie (she/her/hers) completed her Master’s of Physical Therapy in 2012 at the University of British Columbia. She had the opportunity to work in a variety of clinical settings early on that greatly informed her outlook on healthcare, particularly around the challenges people have navigating our antiquated healthcare system and the disparities in access to preventative healthcare services. Jodie became a pelvic health physiotherapist in 2016 and quickly adopted the framework of the biopsychosocial model of care into her practice. It is at the intersection of her interests in the human body and providing a new model of care that Jodie is most interested. Jodie believes that listening, communication and the use of language are some of the most critical tools healthcare providers have in our toolboxes. Jodie is passionate about education, advocacy and social justice in healthcare. Jodie has been assisting in teaching since 2019 and is excited to be joining the Reframe Rehab team to help facilitate knowledge translation into meaningful practice changes.

Carolyn Vandyken

Carolyn has practiced in orthopaedics and pelvic health for the past 33 years. She is a McKenzie Credentialed physiotherapist (1999), certified in acupuncture (2002), and obtained a certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in 2017. Carolyn received the YWCA Woman of Distinction award (2004) and the OPA Distinguished Education Award (2015). She has been heavily involved in post-graduate pelvic health education, research in lumbopelvic pain, speaking at numerous international conferences and writing books and chapters for the past twelve years in pelvic health, orthopaedics and pain science. Her passion is to break down the silos that we live in as clinicians.
