Neuroscientific painmodulation in Copenhagen, Denmark


After great demand, it is my pleasure to inform that Neuroscientific painmodulation is coming to Copenhagen, Denmark, on the 17. – 18. June 2023.

Neuroscientific painmodulation is an innovative two-day course focusing on pain research and painmodulation. Neuroscientific pain modulation is a scientific and principle-based approach to the treatment of diagnoses where the pain is the cardinal symptom, ie, all diseases and musculoskeletal problems where the pain is the dominant patient complaint.

The updated, expanding, and modified version has well over 500 citations of scientific peer-review articles. As such, the course represents a much-needed update to the governing theories, narratives, philosophies, and world-view which is present in pain management. 

The aim and end goal is to help clinicians and therapists integrate an often frustratingly complicated amount of clinically valuable research, enabling them to make more informed choices about the care of the person in front of them.

Research in itself does not help people; the skillful clinical reasoning of a clinician or therapist does. Only health professionals, who clinically work with people in pain, can implement and apply the research. Everyone we take under our care deserves this.
