Event description

Description

Recently there has been research and a better understanding of the interactions among, biological, biomechanical, psychological and social factors that affect health and illness. This has led to a paradigm shift from a biomedical reductionism approach to a more comprehensive biopsychosocial model. This interaction is apparent in working with chronic and acute pain patients where mental health, addiction and medical pathologies prominently interface. Research has shown that this combination in pain disorders creates challenges in self-regulation and increases the possibility of acquiring a substance use disorder and/or addiction. Emotion regulation skills play a vital role in working through the challenges this population will encounter for better outcomes, acceptance of the pain disorder and its accompanying emotional and mental concerns while teaching patient’s self-regulation skills to effectively work through the pain without depending primarily on opiate prescriptions.

This presentation focuses on the combination of treating the biomechanical causes of pain and dysfunction, along with equipping the patient with emotion regulation skills, to affectively target and help manage mental health conditions, addiction and physical pain symptoms, leading to an increase in successful outcomes.


Here are the 5 learning objectives:

  • Review the current situation in healthcare around the treatment of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction
  • Explain how early access to Physical Therapy and Behavioral Health can effectively help treat musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction
  • Discuss how Physical Therapists can work in coordination with other behavioral health providers
  • Understand the challenges in self-regulation with pain disorders
  • Effective emotion regulation skills used with chronic and acute pain patients
