Event Details

Taught by Mary Massaro
2 CE Hours

Suffering from chronic pain is all consuming for both the patient and the clinician. Navigating through the difficulties each face can be a challenge.

Clinicians who treat patients with chronic pain whether musculoskeletal or nerve injuries, headache, or other chronic pain frequently face difficult dilemmas. Treatment approaches are often unclear. Patient encounters may be time-consuming, frustrating, and emotionally draining. After repeated referrals for diagnostic tests, physical therapy, or specialty care, patients often return more depressed, hopeless, and demoralized than before. Yet, it may be difficult for the clinician to bring up the psychological aspects of a problem. Patients may react defensively, believing that the clinician thinks the distress is “all in their head.”

This workshop will explore a variety of techniques and treatment plans offering greater support to those who suffer and for those who work with the chronic pain sufferer.
