MARQUETTE - Natalie Hutter, occupational therapist from U.P. Rehab Services and Marquette General Therapies attended the "Explain Pain" Seminar by the Neuro Orthopaedic Institute Australasia.
In a world experiencing an epidemic of chronic pain and increasing evidence of the failure of synthetic drugs; simple but extremely powerful educational tools can effectively target the natural pain treatment systems within us all.
Knowledge is power. In the new series of Explain Pain courses delivered by Dr David Butler and the NOI teams around the world, cutting edge pain sciences are made accessible and understandable for all. The sciences are turned into metaphor and descriptive narratives, all on a framework of conceptual change science and the philosophy of emergence. Explaining pain is a two way process the pain patterns, metaphors and stories from the patient's viewpoint need reasoned analysis and are critical to meeting sufferers at their story.
The knowledge is applicable to the young and the old, from back pain to hemiplegia, general aching to the complexities of phantom pain and complex regional pain syndrome.
