About The Event

Current clinical research, education and practice commonly approaches musculoskeletal pain conditions in silos. A focus on body regions such as knee, hip, neck, shoulder and back pain as separate entities is manifest by region-specific clinical guidelines, conferences and working groups. Emerging evidence demonstrates that musculoskeletal pain disorders are frequently comorbid and share common biopsychosocial risk profiles for pain and disability. There is broad consensus across clinical guidelines on the recommendations for best practice, irrespective of body region. We contend that a shift to focus on the person is needed. This best practice approach will encourage clinicians to: (1) focus on patients’ context and modifiable biopsychosocial factors that influence their pain and disability; (2) use education to facilitate active management approaches (targeted exercise therapy, physical activity and healthy lifestyle habits) and reduce reliance on passive interventions; and (3) consider evidence-based surgical procedures only for those with a clear indication and where guideline-based non-surgical approaches have been rigorously adhered to.

This webinar presented by Incitus will be live and interactive. After registration you will receive a link for registration.
