Matt Nelson, PT, DPT, TPS image

Please join BHC and our community for our February Education Meeting, “Pain Wars: Understanding the Neuroscience of Pain” with Dr. Matthew Nelson PT, DPT, TPS.

In an easy to understand and fun approach, Dr. Nelson will explain and discuss the neuroscience of pain, and how physical therapy can play a role in treating pain for chronic illnesses such as ME/CFS and FM. He will discuss a new treatment approach for complex and chronic pain conditions as well.

Dr. Nelson received received his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Regis University in Denver, Colorado in 2006. He spent three years as an assistant instructor of anatomy and musculoskeletal management at Regis. Matt was first introduced to a technique called trigger point dry needling in 2007 and quickly became an assistant instructor with Kinetacore, which he now teaches to other physical therapists across the United States and Canada throughout the year.

He tirelessly spent the next 5 years working with the professional licensing board and state legislature of Utah and his professional organization to allow physical therapists to perform trigger point dry needling. It was passed into law in 2014. Because of his efforts, Matt was awarded with the honor of Physical Therapist of the Year in 2014. Matt recently obtained his Therapeutic Pain Specialty from the International Spine and Pain Institute in 2018. This specialty recognizes him as expert in the treatment and education for chronic and complex pain conditions.

Education meetings occur the first Wednesday of every month at the Bateman Horne Center and are broadcast via Facebook Live and then posted to BHC Youtube channel here:
