Courses: Explain Pain Online Europe

Ben Davies

An experienced Noigroup instructor in the UK, Ben has taught Explain Pain (EP), Mobilisation of the Neuroimmune System (MONIS) and Graded Motor Imagery (GMI) courses in the UK and Europe since 2008. His background as a physiotherapist involves primary, secondary and tertiary care settings. The majority of Ben’s experience is with people who have complex, persistent pain presentations.

Ben’s PhD at the University of the West of England was in painful diabetic neuropathy, exploring whether this group of people could benefit from the pain management approaches which are relatively common in the MSK pain world, but not in the diabetic world.

Currently Ben is an advanced practice physiotherapist in rheumatology at the Royal United Hospital, Bath. This role includes managing and delivering a rehabilitation program for Axial Spondyloarthropathy, one of only three such courses in the UK, as well as time in rheumatology medical clinics.

You can find Ben on Twitter (@ben_davies42), although he tends to use his free time riding two wheels, or getting back out into the mountains.
