Clinicians are often frustrated by the persistence of pain despite their best efforts to alter it. When chronic pain persists, it is a challenge to change the protective behaviors that contribute to movement impairments and disability in patients with pain.
Incorporating a wholistic approach may improve outcomes for people with pain. Knowing how to include alternative and complementary medicine approaches can lead to greater success in achieving positive functional outcomes for people in pain. Alternative interventions for pain management such as visualization, breathing, mindfulness meditation movement, and relaxation therapies can be a valuable addition to a program for pain management.
NOTE: Tuition includes one free CE Certificate (participant will be able to print the certificate of completion after completing the on-line post-test (80% passing score) and completing the evaluation).
