Webinar Outline:

Embark on a captivating journey with us as we delve into the intriguing fusion of scar tissue, somatotopic maps, and their profound effects on pain perception and motor function. Whether from injury or surgery, scar tissue has the power to disrupt the brain's somatosensory and motor maps, reshaping the way we interpret sensory input and altering motor responses.

Renowned speaker Dr. Ellis will illuminate the research discoveries and clinical insights into these complex interactions. Attendees will gain invaluable knowledge on examination techniques to pinpoint alterations in these maps and essential principles for rectifying them. Join us for an engaging webinar that promises to revolutionize your understanding of scar tissue's impact on the brain and unlock key strategies for addressing these challenges in clinical practice!
