About this Event

This annual symposium is an opportunity for students, faculty, and keynote speakers to update peers, alumni and clinicians from the community in current evidence supporting physical therapy clinical practice. Third-year DPT students are presenting their culminating evidence-based reviews and meta-analyses.

Nichólas Vasilis Karayánnis, MPT, PhD.

Dr. Karayánnis will present: “Mind-body interventions for chronic pain – why try it, why it works, how to do it”.

Dr. Karayánnis' mission as physiotherapist-scientist is to further the practice and integration of mind-body interventions in the lives of individuals living with chronic pain and in the healthcare environment through clinical practice and research. He is interested in promoting awareness of the body-mind and activity engagement.

Dr. Karayánnis is a consultant physiotherapist and mindfulness teacher within Stanford Pain Management Center. He completed his postdoctoral fellowship in interdisciplinary pain medicine within the Systems Neuroscience and Pain Laboratory at Stanford. Before receiving his PhD degree in Physiotherapy from The University of Queensland, he graduated with a Master’s degree in Physical Therapy and a Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Sciences from Ohio University. Dr. Karayánnis is a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapists, board certified as an Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist, a Certified Yoga and Tai Chi Teacher, and a qualified Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction teacher.

Ben Boyd, PT, DPTSc

Dr. Boyd will present: “Healthy notions of pain for a physically active life”.

Dr. Ben Boyd is a Physical Therapist (PT) that teaches in the entry-level PT program at Samuel Merritt University in Oakland, California and continuing education courses for rehabilitation professionals through the Neuro Orthopaedic Institute (NOI). He has been researching and teaching about nerve and musculoskeletal injuries since 2004, with a particular interest in understanding and treating pain. He practices clinically at Stanford Valley Care in Livermore, CA, where he focuses on helping people suffering with ongoing, persistent pain. Dr. Boyd is an advocate of a holistic, biopsychosocial approach for helping those suffering from ongoing pain. He is also interested in how we, as individuals, construct our own understandings about pain, and how that influences our own experiences.
