OPTP markets a new 304-page textbook designed to teach medical professionals, educators, and students the role therapuetic neuroscience education (TNE) plays in treating patients with chronic pain. The company notes that the book, Therapeutic Neuroscience Education: Teaching Patients About Pain; A Guide for Clinicians, was authored by Adriaan Louw and Emilio Puentedura.
The authors aim to provide readers an evidence-based perspective about how the body and brain work together to create pain. The book features a “how-to” section and demonstrates how therapists can teach patients about their pain from a neuroscience perspective via images, metaphors, and examples.
The book also includes a discussion of therapeutic neuroscience education, in an effort to blend TNE with movement therapy.
