Course Description

When living with chronic pain, the thought of doing exercise or having too much movement throughout the day can be very daunting.   

Jordan Miller explores some of the most recent research on movement and chronic pain.  He discusses how strategies drawn from behavioral therapy are leading to new developments in physiotherapy to assist people with pain  who would like to move more and experience less pain with activities. These strategies may help people with pain do more of the  activities that they enjoy.

This webinar will help you:

  1. Understand the science of how movement can reduce pain and increase the amount of activity you are able to perform before experiencing an increase in  pain.
  2. To feel comfortable trying new movements and activities to reduce pain and improve your movement.
  3. To apply the principles of graded exposure to gradually increase participation in the activities you would like to do more of.

Jordan Miller MSc PT

Jordan Miller is a registered physiotherapist with an interest in  understanding and treating pain. He is currently completing his PhD at  McMaster University studying the treatment of persistent non-cancer  pain. Specifically, he is interested in the effectiveness of a treatment strategy that includes teaching people with pain about the physiology  of pain and self-management strategies to use that information to  increase participation in activities while controlling symptoms. He  teaches clinicians about pain in the physiotherapy program at McMaster  University and practices clinically at Woodstock and Area Community  Health Centre. He is interested in bridging the gap between his  research, teaching, and clinical practice using knowledge translation, a process through which information is shared between researchers and  knowledge users.
