Pain, both acute and chronic, is something that will affect nearly everyone in their lives. However, in the last 50 years, research on pain has revealed many revelations that have changed many approaches to treatment. However, it is still misunderstood which leads to ineffective treatments and unresolved pain. To truly treat pain, we must first truly understand pain. 


Our guest today is Jason Silvernail DPT, DSc, FAAOMPT and we will discuss the integration of modern neuroscience into practice and how practitioners in medicine, physical therapy, athletic training, massage, and personal training can use this information to help them in their practice.
