Webinar "Why Acute Pain can Become Chronic Pain.”

There are multiple characteristics that distinguish acute and chronic pain, aside from the duration of pain. In this webinar, Dr. Sarah Jarvis explores why acute pain becomes chronic and the central and peripheral sensitisation mechanisms that occur. She explains that chronic pain development can be attributed to neuroplasticity. You will learn more about the key processes that occur within the overall development of pain. Ultimately this process of developing chronic pain impedes and complicates physical recovery, and it is important for you to best determine the impact to your patients.
