WHERE TO TURN FOR CHRONIC PEDIATRIC PAIN DISORDERS
Thursday, April 25; 7pm
Madison Area YMCA: Professional PT Office
Presented by: Dr. Miriam Hillman, PT, DPT, CKPT
Please join us for an informative seminar navigating treatment for pediatric patients suffering from chronic pain. These conditions have various names but more recently have been named "Amplified Musculoskeletal Pain Syndrome (AMPS)" by Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). AMPS causes an abnormal or amplified response to normally painless stimuli (touch, pressure etc.). This syndrome is often challenging to diagnose and can take months or years to rule in. Treatment for AMPS focuses on aggressive exercises that increase heart rate, along with desensitization techniques to help reduce pain response. Please feel free to come with lots of questions! All family members are welcome.
This FREE seminar is open to all. Stop by our office off the lobby of the Madison Area YMCA's Family Center with any questions. Registration is requested: Please call 973-270-7417 or email info@professionalptandtraining.
