APTEI: Preventing Chronic Pain
This is a MUST course for all health care providers, so please do it. I promise that your future patients will greatly benefit from the information provided.
In the past number of decades, for the management of musculoskeletal pain, the use of many medical interventions such as prescription anti-inflammatories, analgesics/opioids, various injection therapies and surgeries have dramatically increased!
In the same token, the use of physical therapy, chiropractic, massage therapy and acupuncture have also continued to increase!
And of course with the intentions of finding the exact cause of musculoskeletal pain, the use of medical imaging such as x-ray, ultrasound, MRI, and CT scans have dramatically increased!
One could assume that with the amazing technological advances in diagnosis, and with the exponential growth in various medical and therapeutic interventions, we would have somewhat reduced the prevalence of chronic pain. NOT!
What's going on?
All health care providers who believe that it's time to focus more on PREVENTION rather than just management of chronic pain once it's developed.
