Course Description

At its simplest, this is a BIOMECHANICS and PAIN SCIENCE course. Ideally, we’ve distilled the best of both to get the best approach to pain and injury management.

Reconciling Biomechanics with Pain Science is a two-day course that mixes a lecture, case study and hands-on learning format. This course has been taught throughout the world with the aim of simplifying the biomechanical approach to injury and pain management. A simplified, yet strongly evidenced based biomechanical approach, allows the therapist to develop skills that address all areas of the biopsychosocial contributors to the pain experience.

This course teaches When Biomechanics Matters along with Therapeutic Neuroscience Education in a Biopsychosocial framework.

Traditional rehabilitation practice is steeped in the biomedical model of treating pain and injuries. While the biopyschosocial model of care is touted as being the superior approach it is often difficult to incorporate traditional biomechanical training within this model. There is the fear that therapists become psychotherapists. The aim of this course is to help reconcile and reconceptualize the biomechanical approach. You will learn that you need not throw the baby out with the bath water when you embrace the biopsychosocial (BPS) approach. Remember, the BPS model starts with “Bio”: you will learn how biomechanics matters and how pain science education and cognition changing can fit together.
