Chaos & Complex Systems Seminar
The complexity of pain how to better understand and express pain perception: a Physical Therapist's perspective
Time: 12:05 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin (refreshments will be served)
Speaker: Jim Cumming, UW Hospital and Clinics
Abstract: Physical therapists are often charged with alleviating pain in those suffering from various injuries, afflictions, and after surgery. In treating pain, Physical therapists are often bewildered how pain expression varies wildly from individual to individual, and even from day to day or hour to hour. This discussion will dive a bit into the neuroscience of pain, and the possible mechanisms behind why things like having an illness, having a stressful life, and even the weather can affect pain perception. But the crux of the discussion will be to discuss some ideas for how to communicate with your health providers about your symptoms to hopefully help improve the care you receive.
