What’s in the Video?

The video contains a wealth of information about the successful amplified musculoskeletal pain syndrome (AMPS) treatment program used by the team at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. It shows seven patient stories including children with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), total body pain (fibromyalgia, diffuse amplified pain, myofascial pain, etc.), neuropathic pain, and intermittent pain. It also shows some who have not fully resolved their pain, but who have regained full function through the treatment program.  It shows the nuts and bolts of physical and occupational therapy showing good and poor forms and discusses practical management in the gym. The psychological and school issues are discussed at length. There is a new outcomes chapter and a discussion on conversion and other complicating factors seen in children with amplified pain. The DVD is fully chaptered and English subtitles are available.

This video was created by a number of medical professionals who have had an intense interest in helping these children, and it demonstrates the knowledge they have gained over the past 20 years.
