By Theresa A. Schmidt, PT,DPT,MS,OCS,LMT,CEAS ©2019 Educise PC

Course Description

Are you comfortable with treating patients who have chronic musculoskeletal pain? Many are misdiagnosed, may be addicted to opiate drugs, or have lost hope for change.  Clinicians face multiple challenges in examination and in selection of effective interventions. This course presents a differential diagnosis of two chronic pain conditions: fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) and myofascial pain syndrome (MPS). Learn to recognize these syndromes and co-morbid conditions associated with them. Research describes clinical tests for appropriate diagnosis of FMS or MPS. Effective therapies to manage symptoms of FMS and MPS are discussed. Clinicians can gain confidence and skill in understanding effective interventions to manage chronic pain for patients with FMS and MPS.
