Diagnose & Treat Central Sensitisation

Screening, diagnosing and treating patients with chronic pain is probably the most challenging task we are confronted with as therapists. 

Many therapists are often overwhelmed by the complexity of patients suffering from persistent pain.

Should we explain pain? Use metaphors? Just work through the pain or completely avoid it? How should we address psychosocial and lifestyle issues? 

If you’re unsure about the questions above, you will absolutely love this online course.

  1. Excellent course ! I feel much more confident for treating patients with CS


    Even though I already knew a lot on central sensitization, I have still learned a lot thanks to this course. I feel much more confident for treating patients with CS. The course is perfectly organized, very complete but it goes also straight to the point and is easy to follow thanks to the different learning modalities (texts, videos, quizz…). Thank you so much Jo Nijs and the Physiotutors Team for your incredible work !

  2. THE course you need to treat patients with Persistent Pain


    Excellent course, delivered in a very clear, organised and detailed manner.
    The course is very interactive, including a mix of written texts, videos, quizzes (and more!), which makes the learning experience much more effective and fun.
    The knowledge acquired is immediately applicable in the clinic.
    VERY much recommended to anyone working with people suffering from persistent pain.

  3. This course will change your perception of (chronic) pain !


    Before starting this course, I already had some knowledge of Central Sensitization, but I was not sure how to integrate this into my treatment. In addition, I only knew the Central Sensitization Index as diagnostic, which is not complete enough.

    This course allowed me to review everything in depth, from diagnosis to treatment, with a lot of informations on PNE, examples and tips to achieve progress with the patient, and the least I can say is that if I had to recommend an online course as my first choice, it would be this one. It’s astonishing how this course has implications for the daily clinic, because there are plenty of either chronic patients or patients for whom pain education may be needed.

    Thanks to Physiotuttors and Jo Nijs for the quality!

  4. Sensibilisatie bij chronische pijn.


    Easy to learn the principales of treatmant for chronic pain.
    Also well explained the 3 differentiations
    of chronic pain.

  5. Central Sensitization in Patients with Persistent Pain: From The Lab to the Clinic


    Good course, very positive the unlimited access so that I can watch and re-watch each section.

  6. Love the course


    Already knew a lot about chronic pain but still learned a lot!!

  7. Great course


    Great course, did it twice already (before taking the test) and probably will do it a few times more because there is so much to learn.

  8. Central sensitization in chronic pain with persistent pain


    The course it was so good to improve my knowledge about chronic pain and how to classify the pain (nociceptive, nerophatic, central sensitization). It was easier to understand how to understand and explain to the patients (with methaphors or examples), like the spam filters, for the patients to know that sometimes the pain filters are not really well working, but at least you can give hopes and using scoping strategies and shared the decision with your patient, for him/her fell confortable in the treatment!

    It was my first time studying pain, and specially the Pain neuroscience education (and we can see how important is to changing the maladaptive beliefs, and making the patient reflecting about their lifestyle, and how they can improve, and use scoping strategies to manage their own pain).

    Really thankfull to all the knowledge Jo Nijs. I would definetely recommended our course for every people that want to learn about it.

  9. Very interresting information about Central Sensitization.


    I highly recommend this course about chronic pain.
    I am a physical therapist that did not know about the practical information Jo Nijs has put in the course.

  10. Great Material


    This was my first time taking an online course so I didn’t know what to expect. I usually struggle to keep my concentration when sitting behind the computer but with this course I really didn’t ! I actually looked forward to it.

    The multiple media sorts used and the different type of testing made it very varied and easy to maintain focus. The extra material provided is great and I love the fact you can keep referring back to previous videos chapters etc this is something that isn’t possible in live courses!

    The course itself is very interesting and something I will definitely be incorporating into practice.

    Highly recommended!

  11. Excelent course


    Excellent course!

    It is a pleasure to learn from Jo Nijs. It has been a very interesting course to update yourself on Central Sensitization. Totally recommended. Thank you.

  12. Fantastic course


    Super practical with lots of information. Glad you can watch over and over! well worth it!
