Chronic Pain Management Workshop for Chiropractors
New two and a half-day workshop for chiropractors September 22-24
Chronic and complex pain can be difficult to assess and may not adequately respond to chiropractic treatment.
Successful chronic pain treatment requires an intimate understanding of pain neurophysiology, a multidisciplinary and holistic approach to patient care, and specific knowledge of chiropractic treatment strategies.
