Eric Kopp of ProEx Physical Therapy guest speaker for New England College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine's continuing education program


ProEx announces that Director of Clinical Education Eric Kopp, PT OMT OCS CSCS FAAOMPT, was a recent guest speaker for the New England College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine as part of its continuing education program.

Kopp was joined by Lee Marinko, PT and Clinical Assistant Professor at Boston University at March 16th and 23rd sessions held respectively at the Westin in Waltham and the Hospital of Central Connecticut in New Britain, CT.

The duo presented “Exercise as Pain Medicine; the Biopsychosocial Approach” providing both clinical and research information relative to using exercise as a pain modulation treatment.

“We received excellent feedback from both audiences and are encouraged that our presentations sparked interest from a number of doctors,” said Kopp, who has practiced orthopedics and sports medicine for the past 14 years and has been an active educator in the continuing education field for eight years.

Kopp and Marinko addressed the many challenges of managing patients in the occupational health setting and provided evidence based insight regarding the use of exercise as a form of medicine to reduce pain.

“I feel honored to have had the opportunity to give voice to the biopsychosocial approach; it’s a method that has proven significant effect as part of a complete pain management program,” said Kopp.
