Last weekend, several of Alpine’s physical therapists attended an excellent course here in Missoula on helping patients with persistent pain issues by way of mobilizing their nervous system.
Brent Dodge, Gary Gales, Dennis McCrea, and Brace Hayden took a two day continuing education class designed to help people with chronic pain and irritable back, neck, and extremity issues move and feel better.
Re-educating the body that ‘movement is good medicine’ is a helpful approach for those in pain that avoid healthy mobility. The course was a thorough approach to assessing and treating this patient population with a lot of dynamic interventions to optimize their return to a higher level of activity.
