Find out when exercise will help or hinder when you're experiencing pain
About this event
Exercise is a recommended treatment for those with chronic pain. However, individuals with chronic pain have significant pain during activity that can interfere with exercise treatments. We will discuss the underlying neurobiology for how physical activity increases and decreases pain, the clinical implications of these findings, and how treatment with TENS can reduce movement-evoked pain.

Kathleen A. Sluka, PT, PhD, FAPTA
Professor of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science
Dr. Sluka’s laboratory studies the peripheral and central mechanisms of chronic musculoskeletal pain, and non-pharmacological treatment for chronic pain. These studies involve the use of animal models of muscle pain developed and characterized in Dr. Sluka’s laboratory, as well as projects in human subjects. We use a variety of techniques to address these questions including cell culture, molecular biology, genetic manipulations, behavioral pharmacology, and standard clinical trial methodology. Our overall goals are to improve the management of pain for people with a variety of musculoskeletal pain conditions by discovering the underlying mechanisms that lead to the development of chronic pain, discovering new therapies for pain management, and improving the use of currently available treatment for pain.
