A human pain experience associated with sensitization of the nervous system should be viewed as a continuum. During the acute phases of injury or postoperatively the nervous system is hy-pervigilant doing what it does best – protect by pain. With time, tissue recovery and skillful treatment the nervous system decreases its temporary sensitization in line with recovery. One in four people however, following injury or surgery, never experience a lessening sensitization of the nervous system, but increased sensitization, pain and dysfunction. The clinical presenta-tion of past the healing time, sensitization to stimuli that should not hurt, widespread sensitiza-tion to palpation and neurodynamic tests and various psychosocial issues is known as central sensitization. For therapists treating various peripheral neuropathic pain states such as carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, cervical radiculopathy, etc., with neurodynamic in-terventions, this “too hot to handle” clinical presentation may create a significant challenge. This 7-hour hands-on course aims to explore the clinical examination and treatment of central sensitization for the upper extremity, with a focus on peripheral nerves. This class will include updated neurobiology of central sensitization and peripheral neuropathic pain, sensorimotor and neurological testing, pain neuroscience education, graded motor imagery, sensory discrim-ination and neurodynamic.
