Pain Research & Education Conference For Clinicians

Welcome back to our 5th year of helping clinicians learn how to apply current pain research into clinical practice!

The mission of the San Diego Pain Summit is to help clinicians learn ways to create frameworks based on current pain research so they can develop effective pain management programs for their patients.

Together we are working to bridge the chasm in order to develop effective pain management programs for our patients. 

Conference seating is limited to 160 people (due to venue size) and the setting is intimate, allowing ample time to network, discuss the information presented with fellow attendees and presenters who represent a wide diversity of professions, while enjoying the scenery and amenities of Mission Bay.

Current seating availability: 122


Multi-disciplinary Pain Science Event

Speakers and attendees come from all over the world - Australia, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Germany, India, Italy, Shanghai, Mexico, New Zealand, Portugal, and the U.S. - to network and share ideas. Presenters have come from a variety of research and clinical backgrounds.The audience represents a diverse group of professionals, including physical therapy, massage therapy, chiropractic, osteopathy, Rolfing, personal training, and more.

The San Diego Pain Summit is a week-long event consisting of pre-conference workshops, a Networking Event dinner, and the 2 day conference. Each event can be purchased and attended separately.
