Clinical Concepts Live
Date & Time
This month's topic:
Beating the pain cycle
More than three million Australians live with chronic pain with 68% of these of working age.Figures show that lower back pain was the most common type of pain, and the leading cause of disability worldwide in 2017.
By 2032 it is projected that cases of arthritis and musculoskeletal conditions will increase by 43% to 8.7 million and affect more than 30% of the population. Back problems are estimated to affect 3.8 million people.
As a result, millions of Australians are taking pain killers, in particular, opioid medications. These come with their own issues and side effects.For example, 62% of all drug-induced deaths in Australia in recent years resulted from opioid use. The government is concerned and has released a National Strategic Action Plan for Pain Management.
As natural health care practitioners how can we manage and reduce pain in these patients?
Join Toni Chambers, Bio Concepts Technical Advisor, to explore pain and the use of opioid medications
- Explore strategies to reduce pain, prevent inflammation and interrupt the pain cycle
- Look at types of pain and effective treatment for neuropathic pain
- Delve into the emotional connection to pain and the impact of pain on mental health
- Dig into pain-related case studies
