Pain is a complex and extensive topic that applies to all physiotherapy and physical therapy practice. As physiotherapists and physical therapists we meet people who are in pain everyday, helping these people is what we do! Pain is an enormous topic that we are unable to cover in one course but as a very important part of our knowledge base this learn topic will provide an overview of current understanding of pain mechanisms and practice based on the latest evidence available. We'll be exploring what pain is, looking at chronic pain and the psychology of pain, investigating how we assess pain and also exploring current trends in pain management and rehabilitation. It is by no means an exhaustive exploration of pain and we advise you to use it as a starting point for your understanding of pain.
