It is often difficult to understand and explain high and prolonged levels of pain where a traditional tissue based cause is lacking. This course explores a cutting edge, patient-centered approach using a variety of practical learning methods to help your patients understand their pain. It provides a range of practical applications and methods to take into your clinic and immediately apply with your patients.

HAPPY CUSTOMERS

Testimonials

Matthew Boyd – Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist. Ottawa, Ontario

“I connect with my patients so much better after taking this course. I get them involved in planning their own rehabilitation and I can see how much more engaged they are. Mike helps you understand how we learn through experience and gives you the practical tools to help your patients learn in the same way. I have used the techniques I learnt with every patient this week. This course is for everyone! Thanks Mike”

 

Anna Warren – Lead Physiotherapist, England & Wales Cricket Board.

“Mike’s Course was an excellent opportunity for us to explore this complex area as a multidisciplinary team. In the elite sport environment, psychosocial factors are often amplified and education in this area is essential. Both medical staff and coaches got a lot from Know Pain, and I would recommend this to any individuals or teams managing athletes.”

Hannah Watts – Physiotherapist & Pilates Instructor. Whitstable, UK.

“Mike’s course has really made me look and think about the language I use with my patients when talking to them about their pain and the importance of listening. It has enabled me to develop my teaching skills in the explanation of pain so that now I have a better understanding of how to communicate effectively with my patients. The course gives you tools to use with your patients straight away and they work. A fantastic course that I would highly recommend.”
