More Info



This course is  for clinicians who are looking to obtain CEU hours through a world-class learning experience that can transform how you care for patients who are in pain. Each learner will have access to exclusive live discussions with instructors after your session.

Course Description

This course is designed to update learners on the latest evidence and clinical application of Therapeutic Neuroscience Education (TNE) for patients in pain. Current best evidence has shown that neuroscience educational strategies utilizing neurobiology and neurophysiology are able to reduce pain, increase function, reduce fear and catastrophization, improve movement and change cognitions and brain activation during pain experiences. Therapeutic neuroscience education changes patient beliefs regarding their pain, thus reducing the threat of pain. This class will discuss the evolution of TNE, why neuroscience education is needed in physical therapy and, more importantly, the clinical application and implementation of TNE for patients with acute, sub-acute and chronic pain.

Course Objectives/Outcomes

  • Discuss the latest evidence for therapeutic neuroscience education.
  • Demonstrate the clinical ability to apply therapeutic neuroscience education to clinical practice with the use of at least one metaphor shared in class.
  • List at least half of the output systems discussed in class and their response in a chronic pain patient.
  • List potential strategies to implement therapeutic neuroscience into clinic practice regarding time, staff, billing and traditional therapeutic treatments.
  • Design a treatment plan for a chronic pain patient based on output system dysfunctions with correct pain neurophysiological reasoning behind the treatment with information provided in the course.
