Using Mindfulness to Improve Outcomes with Chronic Pain Patients
Clyde Boiston, PT, OCS, CMF, TCHI
Physical pain is a natural and inevitable part of life, but it is all the stories we often tend to lay on top of the pain which can bring on additional suffering. We cannot necessarily control the pain which enters our life, but how we relate to the pain is what we do have control over. Some basic mindfulness practices can help shift this relationship. In this workshop, we will present some of the latest research on mindfulness showing how it can change the way our bodies experience pain. Gain evidence-based pain relief strategies that you can begin to implement right away with your patients and clients. Become a more resilient and compassionate clinician: this is where healthcare and mindfulness meet.
