Chronic pain is classified by physicians as any pain lasting three to six months or more. Chronic pain persists — often for weeks, months or even years after an injury. It can have real effects on a person’s day-to-day life and mental health, but the patient and the provider can work together to treat it.

Join us for a day-long conference focusing on many aspects of chronic pain management. Experts will share knowledge on alternative treatments, physical therapy approaches, behavioral therapy approaches and more.

Hear from a variety of medical providers how to approach chronic pain and chronic pain management. Each provider’s perspective will add to attendees’ foundational knowledge of pain management and spur questions to further improve patient care.
