Connection between Stress, Pain, Sleep and Mental Health
By: SideCar, LLC

Course Description

This class will cover how physiological and psychological stress plays a major role in maladaptive neural processes involved in the development of chronic pain. It will also discuss the relationships between chronic pain, mental health and sleep problems. this class also covers the research showing how physical trauma influences the development of subluxations and the consequences on brain function, i.e. the role of altered proprioceptive signaling in driving the neural plastic changes associated with chronic spinal pain problems. Finally, this class covers how best to talk about symptoms with your practice members. This involves explaining the latest understanding about how symptoms do not just develop out of thin air, but instead, the problem builds up undetected over time like a thousand straws on a camel's back, then appear 'suddenly' once your reach the thousandth straw.
