  • Overview

The College Knowledge Exchange is a series of presentations delivered by Fellows of the Australian College of Physiotherapists (the College) exclusively for members of the College. Including a presentation (approx.. 20min) followed by the opportunity for Q&A and peer-to-peer interaction, the College Knowledge Exchange is a great opportunity to connect with the College network and learn from the experience of your esteemed College peers.

This case is a complex chronic shoulder pain problem with confirmed mixed pain types (nociceptive/inflammatory and nociplastic with reduced descending inhibition due to specific psychosocial stressors) as well as marked additional psychosocial stressors of relevance to engagement in rehabilitation but not the pain experience. It illustrates how relevant factors contributing to the pain experience can be tested and the impact this has on individualised treatment.



Associate Professor Jon Ford (PhD and Specialist Pain and Titled Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist) is the Managing Director of Advance Healthcare where he leads a multi-disciplinary pain management team working with chronic pain across six clinics in Melbourne. Advance Online is an additional service providing virtual access to single and multi-disciplinary treatment for people with chronic pain and mental health problems across Australia. Jon is also group leader of the Low Back Research Team at La Trobe University where he conducts clinical research on the effectiveness of individualised treatment for pain problems. He has published over 60 peer reviewed papers on the individualised treatment of pain.
