myoActivation is an injection-based treatment modality being used in BC for people with chronic pain by clinicians at The myo Clinic, BC Children's Hospital, Downtown Eastside Community Health Centre, and CHANGEpain. This webinar is the first in our series on the myoActivation treatment approach.
In this webinar, Dr. Siren will explain his specific process and structured approach, take questions, and share case studies.
All are welcome to register, but this webinar will be especially informative for:
- Physicians, residents and nurse practitioners interested in understanding the utility and scope of myoActivation as a clinical tool for the treatment of chronic pain in their practice
- Physiotherapists authorized to use dry needles in physiotherapy practice, who are interested in adding myoActivation to their therapeutic armamentarium in the future once approved by the College of Physical Therapists of BC
- Physiotherapists NOT currently authorized to use dry needles in physiotherapy practice but are interested in learning a needling technique that has broad clinical utility once approved by the CPTBC
- Individuals living with chronic pain who are interested in understanding the myoActivation methodology and whether it is may assist with improving their pain symptoms
- Those interested in learning more about non-pharmaceutical treatment for chronic pain or needle based treatments for chronic pain
