Safer Pain Relief Summit Course Description

The Safer Pain Relief Summits bring you together with thought leaders in the hands-on healthcare market. Throughout the weekend, you will learn the variety of tools available to safely tackle your patients greatest complaint – pain. Identifying, rehabilitating and preventing musculoskeletal dysfunctions is not only a primary component of pain management, but is fundamental to facilitate and reinforce proper movement patterns. To support your efforts to become an expert in movement and pain relief, we have created a weekend-long continuing education course. A team of instructors with a variety of backgrounds will bring you the research along with hands-on application for a variety of tools to include; IASTM, kinesiology taping, elastic resistance training, and alternative methods for pain relief. Each topic will be presented with an overview of the research and evidence combined with hands-on lab time allowing for participants to see a variety of approaches to pain relief that can be easily integrated into their everyday practice. With research as your foundation, you can position yourself as the first means to pain relief within your community.

Attend our pre-conference business strategies meeting to hear from leading clinical business owners on ways in which they position their clinic as a wellness resource for pain relief within their community. This lecture is not approved for continuing education.
