Course Overview

Pain is a highly personalized experience.  Factors such as physiology, functional status, culturally beliefs and perceptions, and socioeconomic conditions all contribute to the expression and impact of pain.  In this conference,  we will address many of the factors that can complicate pain presentation and treatment.  We will highlight some common pain conditions that have highly variable presentations and the evidence-based best practice to treat them.  We will also offer a systematic Targeted Pain Treatment® approach to identify and treat your patients’ pain in a systematic and effective way, improving function while also reducing opioid use.

This conference is officially endorsed by the Tennessee Pain Society.
