Traditionally speaking, acute management of injuries and post-surgical trauma has been relegated to short-term swelling and pain control, and woefully neglects the sub-acute and chronic phases of healing.
Additionally, these classic tactics often have deleterious effects on later stages of healing and perhaps need to be re-considered. This limitation is compounded by the apparent lack of psychosocial factors that influence pain, healing, and both short and long term prognosis. The goal for this course, is to understand fundamental physiological & psychosocial factors and provide evidence informed application of strategies and techniques aimed at optimizing the short term, with the long term in mind.
