THE DEVELOPEMENT OF CHRONIC PAIN COURSE (BITE SIZE)
 
THE DEVELOPEMENT OF CHRONIC PAIN COURSE (BITE SIZE)
 
£250.00
 

COURSE CODE 275


 

In this course we look at the development of chronic pain.

We start by looking at how different types of pain are transmitted: in particular, we look at the role played by peripheral sensitisation and hyperalgesia in transmitting chronic pain.

We then consider the role of a range of chemical mediators in transmitting pain. Next, we look at drugs that relieve pain by sensitising the nociceptors.

Finally, we consider the issue of central sensitisation to pain, and consider the problem of peripheral nerve damage.
