Neuroscientific Pain Modulation is an innovative two-day course focusing on pain research and pain-modulation, with citations of well over 300 scientific peer-review articles, the course represents a much-needed update to the governing theories, narratives, philosophies, and world-view that there are in pain management. This course is an attempt to pass on what Lars Avemarie has learned by reading modern pain science, neuroscience, rehabilitation research, and critical thinking for (approximately) 10-12 years.
Neuroscientific Pain Modulation is a scientific and principle-based approach to the treatment of diagnoses where pain is the cardinal symptom, ie all diseases and musculoskeletal problems where pain is the predominant complaint.
Lars mission and goal is to make it easy to stay up to date with current pain research. It is his belief that all health professionals want to use updated and current research as the basis of their clinical reasoning. They do not wish to pass on myths or debugged knowledge. But I also recognise that it is incredibly difficult and sometimes almost impossible to keep up-to-date with the current research, which is the idea and defining purpose of his work.
As a participant in the course, you can become a member of an exclusive online group. Where you can access additional resources and information, and you have the opportunity to ask questions for both me and colleagues. The goal of the online group is also to make it easy and manageable to keep up-to-date with current pain research so that you always use the latest research as the basis of your clinical reasoning.
This course is for anyone working professionally with people in pain like: Chiropractors, Massage Therapists, Physiotherapists, Naprapaths, Osteopaths, MDs, Nurses, and Occupational Therapists.
The courses and lectures offered by Lars are based on scientific studies as well as reviews, from the like of European Journal of Pain, PAIN (Journal of the IASP), Journal of the American Physical Therapy Association, British Journal of Sports Medicine (BJSM), Physical Therapy in Sport, Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, The Clinical Journal of Pain, The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), British Medical Journal (BMJ), The American Journal of Sports Medicine, and PLOS Medicine with research from Moseley, McGill, Melzack, Wall, O’Sullivan, Hodges, Deyo, Boden, Maher, Kamper, Stanton, Loeser, Boos, Zusman, Arendt-Nielsen, Puentedura and Louw.
To ensure the highest quality and greatest practical applicability for our participants, we have chosen to make a participant limit of 35 people. This is also to ensure a good amount of time to debate and to ensure time for questions. The course includes a large amount of written material, research-based articles, and a summary of all lectures, well over 60 pages.
