Applied Neuroscience and the “Paining” patient


In this 2-day course, you will learn the most common theories of pain as well as the basic mechanisms believed to contribute towards the pain experience. 

Part 1: WHAT IS PAIN!?

Places the current “pain revolution” into a historical context and discuss the pros and cons of theories as a guide for treatment.


Explores basic mechanisms of neuronal transduction, transmission and modulation (including peripheral sensitisation, central sensitisation and descending modulation) and relates them to clinical findings in acute, persistent and complex pain and management hereof.


Focuses on communication and the patient’s perception of pain and how the narrative about pain can be a therapeutic target.

Join this course to:

  • Explore the possibilities and potentials of mechanism-based assessments and treatments!
  • Learn the basic principles of “pain neuroscience” and how to apply them 
  • Make learning fun and inspiring by learning from a clinical scientist with relevant pain-credentials
  • Make your job easier and more inspiring by understanding your patients and how to communicate the complexity of pain to them!

This course will prepare participants for the European Pain Federation Diploma of Pain Physiotherapy EDPP More info:
