She and Annie discuss the melding of two classification systems, MDT and Pain Mechanism Classification System (PMCS) in the treatment of this neuro patient. Great insights for neuro and ortho PTs alike with illustrations of how the neurological population, having complaints other than pain, like spasticity, can effectively be treated. To learn more on the PMCS reference the book by Annie O'Connor and Melissa Kolski, A World of Hurt: A Guide to Classifying Pain.
