CE Credit Hours: 2.00 Continuing Education Credit Hours
CEU Course Description
Increasing evidence reveals structural and functional changes within the Central Nervous System (CNS) of people with chronic Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD) that appear to play a preeminent role in the pathophysiology of these disorders. The goal of this CEU course is to explore that neuroplastic adaptations and their effects may initially result from structural injury, but in chronic conditions contribute to the pathophysiology of the condition possibly even in the absence of any continued anatomical/structural insult to musculoskeletal structures.
CEU Course Objectives
1. Explain in which ways motor skill training has proven successful.
2. Examine within which area of the spinal cord neurophysiological changes result in the amplification of noxious and innocuous stimuli in chronic pain states.
3. Describe the internal and external pressures required for lasting neuroplastic changes.
