Chronic pain is a complex problem, and understanding all the aspects of it in a given patient is the key to successfully treating it. For many health professionals and patients, however, the problem is considered currently unsolvable. Fortunately, cutting-edge understandings in our neurophysiology have opened a door to a new paradigm for, not just managing, but solving chronic pain. This emerging approach is being successfully used by an increasing number of health care providers across the country.

Please join these four experts as they share how the polyvagal theory has opened a door to a new approach for both our understanding and our treatment of some of our most difficult and chronic issues.

Participants will also get an understanding of the key pillars that will be covered in our upcoming Solving Chronic Pain Summit: A New Pathway to Relief
