New Ways to Prevent and Treat Back Pain – CANCELLED

UPDATE: THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED. 

Join speakers from Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA), who will discuss the latest research in pain and the link with the brain.

New research shows that there are changes in the brain when someone has pain for a long time. Using this knowledge of the brain and how it changes with pain, researchers have developed new treatments for chronic low back pain that target how the brain and central nervous system process sensory information to produce pain. The seminar will include the latest findings and treatments aiming to reduce low back pain by targeting the brain, specifically for those with chronic back pain.
