Why You Hurt System

The Why You Hurt: Therapeutic Neuroscience Education System by Adriaan Louw, PT, PhD, CSMT, is a tool that clinicians can use to teach their patients what pain is and how it works. Available from OPTP, the system uses illustrated flashcards, discussion topics, teaching cues, and homework sessions that refine complex neuroscience into metaphors, examples, and images. It features 14 in-depth sections including “Pain Knowledge,” “Sensitive Nerves,” “Emotions and Pain,” and more. Each purchase of the printed system now includes a one-time download of a digital version, bringing the pain education content into a format deliverable on desktop, tablet, and mobile devices. The digital version can be used for facilitating interactive discussions with patients about their pain.
