Chronic pain has become an epidemic in the United States and in many parts of the world. Recent data suggests that between 10%-15% of the population worldwide suffers from chronic widespread pain, with some studies reporting rates as high as 24%. The most recent data from the United States suggests that approximately 11% of the US population suffers from daily chronic pain, with an additional 10% reporting severe pain at some point over a survey period of 3 months. All in all, this suggests that pain significantly affects 1 in 5 persons in the US at any given time. At the same time, data suggests that opioid prescription for those with chronic pain has been consistently on the rise. However, this has correlated with an associated risk of abuse, overdose, and multiple deleterious effects on health and quality of life, and the evidence for long-term effectiveness is lacking. As such, it is crucial that healthcare providers gain a better understanding of pain and how to effectively manage it via more conservative means, and 21st century research has shown promise in the use of several strategies – including pain neuroscience education. This course will enhance the participants knowledge and understanding of pain and equip them to employ modern pain science principles and interventional techniques to help more effectively manage those suffering from pain.
