Pain Summit Online

As a busy clinician, you don't have the time to weed through an overwhelming mass of clinical research and science developments that may or may not be credible, valuable, or practical.

The video presentations found in the Pain Summit Online are professional recordings from the live stream at San Diego Pain Summit conferences.

Pain Summit Online is for occupational therapists, physical therapists, and manual therapists who need to keep up with the latest information, discoveries and applications in pain management to:

  • Provide better outcomes for your patients
  • Integrate new credible frameworks into your practice
