It’s Almost Here: ISPI 2017 Clinical Conference

Josh Crane, OPTP Staff Writer - May 24, 2017

The International Spine & Pain Institute (ISPI) Clinical Conference will once again be held at the Hilton in Bloomington, MN. This year’s conference will be held June 9-11, and the theme will be Neuroplasticity: Reshaping the Treatment of Pain.

The conference will focus on reshaping pain from a neuroplasticity perspective. Increasing understandings of the functional and structural changes of the brain in people struggling with pain provide exciting opportunities to help with their suffering, and the presentations at this event will focus on these opportunities. The conference will feature both keynote presentations as well as breakout sessions on targeted topics.

This year’s scheduled special topics and lab sessions include:
  • Neuroplasticity and the treatment of pain
  • Graded motor imagery
  • Neuroplasticity for shoulders
  • Motor control
  • Dystonia and sensory processing disorders
  • Neuroplasticity and dry needling
  • CRPS, CLBP and neuroplasticity
  • Mirror therapy
  • Virtual reality
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Phantom limb
Physical therapists, physical therapy assistants, and many other healthcare providers who address patients with chronic pain will benefit from the knowledge shared at the event.
