OPTP and Adriaan Louw Introduce New Pain Posters
OPTP has partnered with physical therapist Adriaan Louw to create a new set of posters focused on neuroscience pain education.
The Pain Neuroscience Posters are now available for purchase and are sold as a set of four 17¾” x 24” posters ideal for display in therapy clinics or rehabilitation centers.
Featuring the content and recognizable illustrations of Adriaan Louw’s patient education books, the posters provide a visual explanation of the foundational principles behind the neuroscience of pain.
They are designed to help patients better understand the reasons why they hurt, and also to complement Louw’s other neuroscience resources published by OPTP, such as the renowned “Why You Hurt” educational system.
The poster set includes four titles:
· The Brain’s Pain Meeting — illustrates how regions of the brain react to the multi-tasking they must do when we experience pain
· The Body’s Alarm System — demonstrates how the body’s nervous system operates like an alarm system when experiencing pain
· The Pain Cycle — shows the recurring phases of how pain affects our thoughts, emotions and overall health
· Tissues: Did You Know? — explains why tissues and problems found on scans may not be the cause of ongoing pain
