Complementing Jay’s though-provoking and clinically impactful lecture at this year’s National Myotherapy Conference on the 21st October, his full day (8hr) practical workshop will allow participants to explore and examine the dynamic and pivotal roles that myofascial trigger points (MTrPs), sensitization, limbic system dysfunction and associated objective/quantitative physical findings play in the management of chronic myofascial pain syndrome (MPS).
Long considered a ‘local’ pain syndrome, MPS is now understood to have a broader impact beyond active MTrPs and has significant associations with mood, health related quality of life and function. Recent research now compels us to look at the pheonmena of MPS and MTrPs as a type of spectrum disorder of sensitisation that manifests clinically through varying signs and symptoms.
This course is proudly sponsored by Red Coral.
Each participant will receive a Red Coral gift and a Wartenberg pinwheel.
