Pain Explained/Explain Pain

Wednesday, March 11, 2020

Anyone who suffers from persistent pain, or who has a loved one, colleague or friend with persistent pain, can directly benefit from this discussion. It is known that the threat value of pain contributes directly to the pain experience, and that informing people about what is actually happening inside them can reduce the threat. The aim of this talk is to assist people in understanding more about their situation and to become less frightened of their pain. The talk will cover modern models of management and provide the treatment essentials for overcoming pain and returning to normal life. Eric Hayford, PT, DPT, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran, received his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Franklin Pierce University. He has extensive experience working in the rehabilitative spectrum, from acute care hospital settings with post-operative orthopedic and cardiac patients, to outpatient settings working with higher level athletes looking to return to sport.
