Exercise for Chronic Musculoskeletal Pain Webinar

While “Exercise as Medicine” is a prominent theme in the management of many chronic conditions, including chronic pain, exercise prescription can be challenging for clinicians given the lack of specific guidelines to inform practice. For individual clients, routine clinical decisions include choice of exercise modality and dosage, the required level of supervision, pain during exercise, targeting education and exercise to the client’s presentation and grading exercise for clients prone to flare up. This webinar explores key aspects of exercise prescription for people with chronic musculoskeletal pain.
 
Presented by Dr Matthew Jones, BExPhys, MSc(Research), PhD, ESSAM, AEP & Dr John Booth, MSc, PhD, AEP
Matt Jones has been an AEP since 2011. He completed his MSc in 2013 and PhD in 2017. His area of research expertise is adaptions of the nervous system in response to exercise – in particular the role of exercise in management of pain and fatigue. Investigations range from laboratory experiments on the adaption of motor and sensory pathways in response to exercise to literature synthesis using systemic review and meta-analysis to explore the associations of physical activity and exercise with pain and fatigue. Matt’s current role is as an academic and researcher in the School of Medical Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, UNSW. His teaching and clinical supervision is focused on developing contemporary clinical skills and evidence-based best practice concerning the use of exercise interventions for musculoskeletal and pain rehabilitation.
