Improve Quality of Life
Human beings are occupational centered beings - meaning routine daily activities give people a sense of purpose. When experiencing injury and/or pain, this sense of purpose is disrupted, leading to anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and general loss of quality of life.
The San Diego Pain Summit is committed to helping clinicians learn how to work with their patients from a patient-centered perspective that is often lacking in healthcare.
The San Diego Pain Summit conferences and workshops adhere to the guidelines set by the International Association for the Study of Pain's Curriculum Outline On Pain For Physical Therapy.
