The Essence of NOI

Our vision is to seed ‘healthy notions of self through neuroscience knowledge’ worldwide. There are currently five critical conceptual change issues which underpin this: 

  1. Injury or disease does not mean that you feel pain. 
  2. The nervous system moves and stretches as we move. 
  3. Pain, stress and performance are outputs of the brain. 
  4. Knowledge and movement are the greatest pain and stress liberators. 
  5. Nervous system plasticity gives new hope and technique.

The biopsychosocial approach, or the merging of the biology of human pain, stress and performance with the psychological and social environment, is the basis of the NOI educational philosophy. It is essentially ‘scientific holism’. Derived mostly from British science, the approach is best typified by Wall and Melzack’s (2005) ‘Textbook of Pain’. 

NOI also espouses strong clinical reasoning strategies, again arising from British critical thinking and later, Australian manual therapy. 

Assessment and management of the physical aspects of the nervous system and brain sciences with a focus on neuroplasticity – particularly how the brain represents our body – is an important focus. 

Overall, the nervous system is a remarkable, mobile, complex, plastic and changeable organ, and this impacts on both acute and chronic injuries and disease. The NOI education system covers acute and chronic musculoskeletal, central and peripheral, and neuropathic pain states.

What Clients Say

The NOIUS office offers first class support as I am new to NOI. Agnes went above and beyond and was more than patient in answering my questions and getting me registered. Her responses were quick and she has a genuine care for clinicians to register and learn more about pain science to help their patients. Highly recommended!
I attended Explain Pain and would highly like to recommend it to everyone interested in building their knowledge base and “toolbox” of pain science. The concepts presented are revolutionary and life changing in patient care. NOI is fantastic to deal with and make it very easy to register for courses and order product. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Let me say something . . . NOI is amazing and offer amazing/awesome support. They helped me on weekend. This is what I call an “extra mile” in customer relationship. 5 stars for NOI and 10 stars for NOI support!
