This will be a very practical workshop exploring several principles of prescribing exercise for pain modulation.
We will consider theories by which exercise may lead to reduction of pain (i.e. exercise induced analgesia) and explore practical strategies which may also facilitate adherence.
We will revisit and explore in a practically relevant way some of the key concepts introduced in 2 keynote lectures (i.e.Reviewing contemporary pain theory and Enhancing Patient Adherence with Prescribed Therapeutic Exercise).
There will be a variety of hints and tips that physiotherapists will be able to use immediately in their clinical practice.
