That's a Wrap

Thank you for joining our three-part webinar series on "How to Measure and Treat Central Sensitization in the Clinic".
There were over 800 people registered, which shows how important and timely this topic is for clinicians.
Sinead and Carolyn are so grateful to our special guests, Jilly Bond, Dr. Judith Thompson and Dr. Martin Rabey for their collective wisdom and thoughts on this important topic.

One More Bonus Session

After Dr. Rabey's talk, Carolyn and Sinead would like to add one more session to ensure that clinicians can tie up all the loose ends of the conversations shared.
They will apply Dr. Rabey's work to the case study that Carolyn presented, as well as review an important paper, "Nociplastic Pain Criteria or Recognition of Central Sensitization: Pain Phenotyping in the Past, Present and Future".
Sinead will wrap-up the clinical application by applying the principles learned to a new pelvic girdle pain (PGP) case study.
There will be plenty of opportunity at the end to ask more questions to really solidify your understanding of the principles learned during this webinar series.
If you would like to review the concepts learned, the webinar series is now available for purchase here.  
The exercise programs that Carolyn utilized with her case study are also available when you purchase the webinar series.
