Pain Terminology: Knowing the Difference Makes a Difference!

Author: Mary Lynn McPherson

The Pain Educators Forum presents this course because there are so many different levels of practitioner experience with pain management. Specifically, inspiration came from someone who, after attending one of our courses, had a burning question for our faculty: "What do sodium channels have to do with pain?" Yikes!!! After attending this humorous, informative course you will definitely know the difference between paresthesia and dysesthesia, allodynia and hyperalgesia, and how sodium channels confer excitability on neurons in nociceptive pathways. In sum, you will be a fierce and worthy contestant on Jeopardy!
