How to Achieve Effective Pain Management!


  • Johns Hopkins University Medical School fast facts - Up to 67% of chronic neck and back pain were miss diagnosed.
  • The American Academy of Pain Management reports that Medical Doctors ONLY Receive 9 hours of Pain Management Training in 4 YEARS! Link

  • The Need for a Canadian Pain Strategy.  By Mary Lynch, President of the Canadian Pain Society.  This article shows the overall lack of specific pain management per profession. Link


    How the Opioid Epidemic Started - it was NOT Evidence Based!

  • Effective pain management starts with a comprehensive assessment.  

  • Diagnosis must be specific to the individual.

  • Diagnosis must be associated with nociceptive or neuropathic pain

  • Treatment must assess the biopsychosocial model of pain

  • Treatment must consider subjective pain and effect on ADL's
