Presenter: Dustin Cox, DPT, PT, LSVT, CLT and Ph.D candidate

Lecture Topic: According to the Centers for Disease Control, 20.4% of the population had chronic pain in the United States in 2019. The APTA launched a campaign called #ChoosePT to recommend that clients who have chronic pain ask for services from Physical Therapy. Research is showing that cognitive based strategies are an effective way to increase the functional abilities and outcomes in clients that have chronic pain. This lecture will focus on the background of cognitive based therapies, client outcomes with these strategies, and future direction that the field of Physical Therapy could take with these strategies.
