Learning Objectives

  • Present pain neurophysiology relevant for physiotherapists including: nociception and inflammation, pain modulation and neuroendocrine-immune system responses.

  •  Using interactive tasks and clinical scenarios, explore how these physiological processes relate to patient presentations and influence clinical practice

Event Description

Movement, neurophysiology, psychology, social interactions, health and lifestyle- why do these affect pain? Can you assess their contribution to each individual’s presentation and offer a tailored treatment? Assessing and treating from these multiple dimensions is challenging to do without a solid understanding of the science behind clinical presentations. This workshop will deepen clinicians’ understanding of pain neuroscience to help clarify complexity in daily practice. Importantly, this course highlights how to integrate inputs from the body (peripheral inputs) and the brain and nervous system to guide clinical reasoning and develop treatment strategies reflective of contemporary pain science. This includes approaches to physical activity and manual therapy, as well as pain education and strategies to reduce pain-related fear and anxiety.

Presenter Profile

Dr Niamh Moloney is a Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist (as awarded by the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists) who combines 20 years of clinical and academic experience. Her PhD (2012) investigated pain and sensory profiles in people with neck and arm pain, with her subsequent research focusing on assessment of pain profiles and its impact on prognosis and treatment response. In her research and clinical practice she has applied these approaches to various musculoskeletal conditions as well as pain following breast cancer treatment. She has over 45 peer-reviewed publications and has presented her research widely at national and international conferences. She has taught in the area of pain and musculoskeletal physiotherapy since 2005 holding positions at the University of Sydney (Lecturer) and Macquarie University, Sydney (Senior Lecturer, currently Honorary Research Fellow) and contributing to the Neuromusculoskeletal Masters, University College Dublin. 

Dr Martin Rabey is a Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist and Fellow of the Australian College of Physiotherapists. His PhD (2016), completed at Curtin University in Perth, explored the complex interactions between multiple dimensions (pain sensitivity, psychological, health and lifestyle, movement, behaviour, demographics, socioeconomics) associated with persistent low back pain. Following this, he was part of a team researching complex interventions for persistent low back pain at Neuroscience Research Australia. He has since returned to clinical practice in Guernsey in the Channel Islands where he grew up. His ongoing research revolves around the examination and management of chronic pain disorders. He has been teaching pain physiology to clinicians since 2001
