Evidence Based Alternative and Complimentary Approaches for the Management of Acute and Chronic Pain for Patients.

Musculoskeletal Pain - Workshop

Musculoskeletal Pain Disorders such as back pain, arthritic joint pain, myofascial pain syndrome, tension headaches and diffuse pain syndromes affects millions worldwide and is the most common reason for people to see a doctor or healthcare provider relating to pain. Many of these are misdiagnosed and unnecessary invasive procedures are given, learn what others in the healthcare community are now understanding that a non-invasive approach is your first option in alleviating pain indications for many patients Functional testing for common pain pathologies are given to avoid the high cost of MRI(s) and other diagnostic testing associated with work injuries included to create your differential diagnosis.

Beyond the discomfort associated with these disorders, there are financial and other costs, including medical care expenses, lost work days, and diminished quality of life—all of which are fueled by worldwide trends, including our aging populations, sedentary lifestyles and increasing incidence of obesity. However, in spite of the many medical treatment options available to clinicians, there is widespread under treatment of patients with acute and chronic pain beyond prescription medications. Within the course we go over less expensive alternative treatments such as electroacupuncture, deep tissue ultrasound, prolotherpy options, and non-steroidal pharmacologics.

UPCOMING WORKSHOPS
DATES & LOCATIONS

This workshop will prepare primary care physicians and healthcare providers in how to incorporate affordable, evidence‐based adjunctive therapy modalities such as cold laser therapy and ultrasound into their existing practice. Additionally, the course centers around functional medicine that conceptually takes both integrated medical concepts with conventional medicine. These therapies using both integrated medicine and conventional medicine has proven to be more effective than single modalities. Concepts such as the use of biologics (i.e. exosomes, amniotic tissues, PRP), stem cells, red light therapies, infrared sauna, prolotherapy, lifestyle issues, physical therapy and diet considerations are discussed and protocols given. Medical conditions such as Fibromyalgia and other disabling neural conditions are discussed for those patients not controlled by conventional medicines or treatment options.

Whether you choose to perform these procedures yourself or to hire a physical therapist, adding adjunctive therapy services to your practice will enhance patient care while creating a new revenue stream for your practice. Physical therapy protocols and options are discussed in detail since many of the adjunctive therapies require physical therapy or exercise in combination with these adjunctive therapies for musculoskeletal pain.
