The National Orthopaedic Division and the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physical Therapy are excited to announce Dr. Chad Cook as the keynote speaker at the 2019 National Orthopaedic Symposium!
Pain science and orthopedic manual therapy are both intervention methods that are designed to reduce pain and improve global outcomes of patients. Both interventions involve pain modulatory principles and both have been well studied in the literature. Recent social media chatter, clinical opinion, and an occasional publication, have pitted these two intervention methods as opposing constructs. This presentation discusses the key principles of each approach and compares and contrasts. Certainly, the methods are not the same, but interestingly, they have similar genetics that are worth discussion.
Dr. Chad Cook, PT, PhD, MBA, FAAOMPT, is a clinical researcher, physical therapist, and profession advocate with a long history of clinical care excellence and service, as well as many years as a leader in academia. With three textbooks and over 200 peer-reviewed publications, Dr. Cook has a long-standing history of service roles as an editor-in-chief or associate/special topics editor for multiple journals including JOSPT and BJSM.
