Advanced Pain Therapy
Live, Interactive Webcast Continuing Education Course - 3 Hours Credit
Instructor: Dr. Vera Brown, D.M.D.
This course will review the deep anatomy of the head, neck and arm with an emphasis on nerve entrapment and myofascial pain that originate in the head and neck. Soft tissue therapies will be demonstrated that relieve fascial tension, restore range of motion and relieve pain. The importance of fascia and its role in pain relief will be reviewed to give the participant a better understanding of the many fascial planes that exist and how pain can be treated by manipulation of these tissues. We will review pain pathways and symptoms such as burning, loss of strength and numbness.
