This online sports science taster event includes a live lecture from one of our inspirational research academics. Traditionally, we think of pain as an alarm bell, signalling that something is wrong, you have been injured, you are ill or tissues have been damaged. In these acute situations, pain is very useful as it helps us to protect ourselves. But what about people who continue to experience pain long after the injury has healed or they have recovered from illness? In this session Dr Kyra De Coninck will explore new and exciting research which has helped us to understand chronic or recurrent pain and is leading to new ways to manage chronic pain, and tailor rehab and training programmes. At the end of the lecture Dr De Coninck will be joined by a current student and you will get the chance to ask questions about the course and life at Kent.

This talk will explore new and exciting research which has helped us to understand chronic or recurrent pain and is leading to new ways to manage chronic pain. This understanding is important as it helps us to tailor rehab and training programmes.
