“Chronic PAIN Management"

NPA  •  Chronic Pain Management Program  •  Nebraska Medicine

Friday, November 6, 2020  

9:00 – 4:00  CDT

NPA has teamed up with the Chronic Pain Management Program and Nebraska Medicine to bring you FIVE presenters – including psychologists and physical therapists – to give you the most current information on effectively managing chronic pain. Misconceptions about pain are quite common. While there is very little evidence that chronic opioid therapy benefits most people, recent empirical data shows that chronic pain treated with opioid medication does not result in improved functioning, compared to non-opioid treatment, and leads to more harmful side effects and even higher pain levels. Join us as these experts…

  • show how behaviors, thoughts, emotions, and expectations can influence the perception of pain, and the importance of using a holistic, comprehensive approach when treating a person with chronic pain.
  • provide information, practical tools, and resources to assist with treating individuals whose daily activities are strongly guided by pain level, as well as strategies to help patients begin leading more active and fulfilling lives despite their pain.
  • introduce you to Pain Neuroscience Education, and explain how educating your patients about central sensitivity can help start them on a path of calming the central nervous system, and provide additional resources to assist you with educating yourself and your patients in long term chronic pain management.
  • discuss how to effectively educate, advise and encourage clients with chronic pain conditions to establish and maintain a cardiovascular exercise program.
  • share basic understandings of how and what foods contribute to inflammatory physiology as it relates to a chronic pain diagnosis, and review foundational methods for improving these inflammatory contributors.
