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.

The San Diego Pain Summit is pleased to announce that all past and future conference presentations and workshops adhere to the Curriculum Outline on Pain for Physical Therapists as set by the International Association for the Study of Pain.

It was a privilege to be part of a group of people who are open to exploring pain, its meaning, and alternative paths to management. The understanding of pain and its management around the world needs a revolutionary shift — and it needs conferences like this to help promote this culture change.
