Chronic Pain, Pain Education, Pediatric
Chronic pain affects 25.3 million adults daily in the US. However, it is not isolated to only the adult population. In fact, up to 25% of children experience persistent pain, which can negatively impact major psychosocial and developmental aspects of life, including sleep, school attendance, health and wellness, substance abuse, and translate to disability in adulthood. Using pain science education in physical therapy is an effective intervention for the effective treatment of chronic pain. Special considerations must be taken when implementing these interventions in the pediatric population for desirable outcomes. This session will focus on methods to modify pain science education for the effective management of chronic pain in children. The speaker will present important information to consider when treating a child with chronic pain, while also providing specific case examples, multi-disciplinary considerations, and clinical tools that will assist in the non-pharmacological treatment of these patients.
Upon completion of the course, the attendee will be able to:
- Discuss the need for chronic pain management for the pediatric patient.
- Identify unique considerations for the management of chronic pain in the pediatric population.
- Explain pain science at an age-appropriate level when treating children with chronic pain.
