Description

This introductory level course offers clinicians utilizing electrotherapy with knowledge to maximize treatment outcomes from the use of electrotherapy in the rehabilitation of patients with pain. Various neurophysiological mechanisms of pain and pain management will be discussed, including the gate control theory, the release of endogenous opioids, trigger points and sympathetically maintained pain. Specific electrotherapy protocols will be discussed, including the choice of best waveform, best waveform parameters and best practices on how to incorporate electrotherapy in the treatment session.

Objectives

On completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Describe the theoretical background to the management of pain using surface electrical stimulation

2. List common conditions for which electrotherapy is indicated as a pain management approach

3. Describe the electrotherapy protocols appropriate for the management of acute pain, chronic pain, pain due to trigger point activity and pain due to sympathetic hyperactivity

4. Select the most appropriate modality and parameter settings to obtain the desired physiological response

5. Describe the relationship between target sensory neuron diameter and stimulation frequency and phase duration
