Pain has affected each and every one of us at one point or another. When clients are in pain, training can be very dangerous and detrimental. It is imperative that a personal trainer be able to understand signs of pain as well as types so that they can encourage their client to seek medical assistance. But there are many people out there also dealing with chronic pain.

There are many innovative techniques which, along with physical activity, can significantly improve a person’s quality of life. In this course, we will explore some of these options to give you a better tool kit for helping clients in pain, provided it’s with the permission of a certified medical professional. Join Jane Curth and Jill Wener, MD, as they discuss what pain is, how to identify different types, a personal trainer’s scope of practice in this area, as well as several options for helping clients who deal with chronic pain.
