Our Forest Grove Physical Therapy Director, Scott Hein, attended the Oregon Pain Summit this past weekend. He joined a few Therapeutic Associates colleagues (Pat Corrigan PT, MS, Greg Pick PT, and Pete Dills PT, DPT) as well as other physical therapists, physicians, and mental health professionals from around the state.

The Oregon Pain Summit provided attendees with up-to-date, and clinically useful, pain science. During the Summit attendees reviewed how all pain is constructed, its function, and the impact of other health domains on pain. Lecture topics for the Oregon Pain Summit complemented the Oregon Pain Management Commission’s recently released Pain Education Module. Lecture topics covered Nutrition, Mood, Movement, Motivational Interviewing and Sleep. Lectures were presented by a variety of healthcare professionals.
