With expanding research on Neuroplasticity, it is becoming more evident that everything we do as physical therapists influence the brain and potentially the homunculus. There is now tremendous evidence that individuals with persistent pain have altered cortical homunculus, body schema, reduced tactile acuity, and reduced proprioception / joint position sense (JPS). Perhaps we can be more effective as clinicians if we placed a greater focus on changing the brain rather than habitually focusing on patho-anatomy and always attempting to "fix" tissues.

This is an online continuing education course taught by Bahram Jam that explores these concepts and their application into a physiotherapists' practice.

Course Objectives:

  • Learn how to enhance our patient outcomes by increasing our patients' awareness of the manual therapies we do
  • Learn how we can enhance our patient outcomes by maximizing our patients' awareness of every exercise or movement that we prescribe
  • Appreciate and understand how everything we do in physical therapy has an influence on the brain
  • Use this knowledge to better help some of our patients with persistent pain, for example, WADs, chronic LBP, knee OA, post-concussions.
