Presentation topic: Introducing the Pain and Movement Reasoning Model: A tool for capturing the complexity of pain.
The Pain and Movement Reasoning Model was created to assist physiotherapists working in musculoskeletal outpatient settings to apply contemporary pain science to their clinical reasoning. It has subsequently been adopted in clinical settings, and as an educational tool, in pre- and post-registration programs in Australia and the UK.
The Model has been adapted for use in other clinical contexts and across disciplines including pelvic pain, pain associated with breastfeeding, post-surgical pain and pain in survivors of torture. This presentation will provide an overview of the theory underpinning the Model and provide some clinical examples of how can it be used in assessment and treatment of painful conditions. Participants will be encouraged to make their own modifications and create a bespoke clinical reasoning tool for their personal practice.
Presenter Lester Jones, APAM
Lester is a physiotherapist with over 20 years of experience in clinical practice and 15 years as an educator in physiotherapy training programs. In 1999, he became the first physiotherapist to graduate with a Master’s degree of Science in Medicine (Pain Management), from the University of Sydney. Lester’s scholarly activities have been devoted to the translation of research into clinical practice and his current research involves integrating current pain science into health care management of the human pain experience. He currently works in private practice in Melbourne and is the Chair of the Australian Physiotherapy Association National Pain Group. He is co-author of the Pain and Movement Reasoning Model, with Des O’Shaughnessy, and has presented the Model in various forms at National and International conferences, most recently GP15, Melbourne.
