EFFECTS OF ACUPUNCTURE AND MINDFULNESS ON THE LIMBIC AND PREFRONTAL CORTEX: A WORKING HYPOTHESIS FOR PAIN AND ANXIETY MANAGEMENT

Presenter: Longbottom J

Within the field of chronic and /or perceptual pain within the UK,

physiotherapists are increasingly required to assess and manage complex

pain, anxiety and depression presentations within restricted time

constraints and with increasing emphasis of patient self-management.

This presentation will address the underlying patho-physiology of

anxiety and depression, together with acupuncture interventions and

the subsequent effects on the Limbic and Pre-frontal cortex in patients

presenting with complex pain states.

Key Practice Points:

This presentation will offer delegates:

• A theoretical model underpinning of the patho-physiological changes

within the Limbic and Pre-frontal cortex contributing to;

– Anxiety

– General depression

– Pain.

• A theoretical model underpinning of physiological process during

depression with relevance to the sympathetic and parasympathetic

systems.

• Integration of acupuncture with CBT/ Mindfulness as a clinically reasoned

treatment plan

• Discussion of recent research evidence to support the development

of clinical protocols to facilitate the management of complex pain

presentations and facilitate patient self management
