Title : Manual therapy and motor control in the treatment of chronic pain
Pain is one of the most frequent complaints of patients, being responsible for causing damage to the public health system, disability, and loss of functionality to patients.
Understanding the different levels and types of Pain and its possible musculoskeletal dysfunctions is essential for health professionals, giving them a better capacity for dysfunctional diagnosis.
The use of manual therapy techniques and segmental stabilization are resources used worldwide in the treatment of pain by physiotherapists, but the lack of specificity of the techniques as well as the technical knowledge of the professionals is essential to achieve good results in clinical practice.
What is observed is an existing barrier between the application of the technique and knowledge about pain, in this way patients may not achieve the desired results.
In my two studies published this year, it can be observed that when applied specifically, using evidence-based practice, we can obtain good results in the clinical improvement of Pain.
New studies are providing a better understanding of the physiological processes that occur in these individuals after the application of these techniques, changing the perspective of professionals to a more in-depth look at changes in the central nervous system instead of seeking only musculoskeletal tissue explanations.
This conceptual change opens up a new range for new studies and may change the clinical management of these patients.
