3 Game Changing Concepts of Pain

Great to see more and more awareness coming forth in our PT profession about the understanding of pain, how we think about it, and how we treat it.

Recent Feb 2020 article titled: What have Pain Sciences brought to Physiotherapy (PT)?

Results: “Scientific research on pain has largely converged in support of three ‘game-changing’ concepts that have shifted the physiotherapy (PT) profession’s understanding and treatment of pain:

(1) pain is not a signal originating from bodily tissues

(2) pain is not an accurate measure of tissue damage and

(3) the plasticity of the nervous system means the nervous system itself is a viable target of treatment.”
