Sku: 8751

Teach your patients about pain; research shows they will feel less pain, have less fear, move better and show more interest in therapy. This all-inclusive system delivers immediate clinical application of therapeutic neuroscience education. 

Watch Adriaan Louw's Product Demonstration:


Physical therapist Adriaan Louw's Why You Hurt: Therapeutic Neuroscience Education System refines complex neuroscience into easily internalized metaphors, examples and images to efficiently teach your patients what pain really is and how it works.

Features:

  • Over a dozen versatile education sessions cover a wide variety of patients. 120+ illustrated education cards are intuitively separated into common chronic pain topics.
  • Teaching cues guide each session. Beginners can deliver the cues directly; after practice, cues function as guidelines.
  • Homework promotes deep learning and empowers patients with an active role. Includes 50 reproducible homework cards; photocopy the cards or download electronic versions*.
  • Pain questionnaire cards supplement education sessions or homework. 12 questions help unveil how patients conceptualize pain.
  • Teaching index ensures accurate selection of session topic. It details each section's message and offers a list of associated clinical issues.
  • Instructions and background of therapeutic neuroscience education. Here's the how and why of TNE, including the impressive research behind it.
Adriaan Louw's Why You Hurt system is much more than pain flashcards. This integrated system, based on best evidence research, gives you the knowledge and tools to treat chronic pain patients right out of the box.

System includes 120+ full-color, two-sided education cards with teaching cues and scientific support, 50 reproducible and downloadable homework cards, 12 pain questionnaire cards, detailed instructions, discussion of TNE and a teaching index. Cards measure 8½" x 6½". Non-returnable.

A valuable companion to the Why You Hurt system, Adriaan Louw and Emilio Puentedura's Therapeutic Neuroscience Education: Teaching Patients About Pain; A Guide for Clinicians offers in-depth study of therapeutic neuroscience education (book sold separately).

USE THIS!

I've been doing TNE with patients since 2006, and this makes the process so much easier, with faster "ah ha" moments on the patient's faces. The flashcards are an amazing facilitator of the conversation. If I'd had this years ago, I'm sure I would have saved a lot of time, effort, and pain on my part trying to figure out and draw things in the most comprehensive fashion. NI

Great clinical tool

This patient education system does an excellent job of providing clinicians with an organized, comprehensive framework to teach patients about pain and in turn, decrease their fear and catastrophization around movement and increased daily activity. It also promotes consistency between therapy colleagues in how they deliver this crucially important education to pain patients. It contains excellent images and talking points for therapists to work with. This cardbox is long overdue and I'm excited to have it as a clinical tool in our PT departments!

If you treat people in pain with TNE, you need this.

I wrote a review for the book, Therapeutic Neuroscience Education (TNE), on Amazon, entitled, "If you treat people in pain, you need this." And I meant it. Now, if you have the book and/or have taken the TNE course, you NEED this kit. I bought it as soon as it was available on OPTP, got it last Friday, used it on Monday. I even gave my interns homework with it during our teaching shift. The assignment was to think about the next patient they will see that we are doing TNE with and figure out which section of the "Why You Hurt: Therapeutic Neuroscience Education System" best applies to them and come up with a lesson, using the system and homework for the section(s) that best apply to them. The best thing is, everything needed for this is included in the kit. The kit is organized in sections according to the particular TNE lesson that is most appropriate for the patient. This kit is the missing link to utilizing TNE clinically. We know that pictures and metaphors are the best delivery system for this info and this kit has that, appropriate homework, and even Moseley's pain quiz. Get this, use it on Monday, help people in pain.
