Why You Hurt System Goes Digital
The Why You Hurt: Therapeutic Neuroscience Education System by Adriaan Louw, a valuable tool for clinicians teaching their patients about pain, refines complex neuroscience into easily internalized metaphors, examples and images to demonstrate what pain really is and how it works.
The system is composed of illustrated flashcards, discussion topics, teaching cues and homework sessions. It features 14 in-depth sections including “Pain Knowledge,” “Sensitive Nerves,” “Emotions and Pain,” and more.
As a newly added feature, each purchase of the printed system now includes a digital version, bringing the popular pain education content into a format deliverable on desktop, tablet and mobile devices.
All printed systems will come with an insert instructing users how to perform a one-time download of the electronic file. The digital version will be ideal for facilitating interactive discussions with patients about their pain.
The system works in concert with the entire family of pain education products by Louw; the Why Do I Hurt? patient education book, Why Do I Hurt? Workbook and Pain Neuroscience Posters, all of which are available exclusively from OPTP.
