Clinical Application of the Pain Paradigm: Challenging the Challenge
About The Course:
Because of the plasticity of the system, pain responses to mechanical testing of the body not consistent or localizable, that way central sensitization produces false positives in diagnosis.
The purpose of this course is to identify leading strategies to deal with our patient's pain.
The mission of the San Diego Pain Summit is to help clinicians learn ways to create frameworks based on current pain research so they can develop effective pain management programs for their patients. Together we are working to bridge the chasm to develop effective pain management programs for our patients.
This course was recorded at a multi-disciplinary conference where clinicians learn how to apply current pain research into clinical practice.
Who Is This Course For:
This course is relevant to all healthcare professionals.
