Non-Pharmacological Modulation of Chronic Pain is organized by Academy of Integrative Pain Management (AIPM) and will be held during Nov 14, 2016 - Nov 14, 2019.

The target audience for this medical event is all clinicians who treat chronic pain. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.

Conference Description:
Chronic pain has consequences that go far beyond the pain itself, with patients showing anxiety, depression, and cognitive deficits. Longitudinal studies in rodent models show similar changes. Brain imaging studies in both pain patients and rodents show alterations in brain anatomy and function. Nevertheless, we now see that these effects can be prevented or reversed by environmental factors. In pain patients, lifestyle choices, such as yoga or meditation, reduce pain perception and counter age-related decreases in brain gray matter. Rodent models show that increased stress alters pain behaviors, whereas enriched environments reduce such behavior and brain changes. Together, these data indicate that the far-reaching adverse effects of chronic pain may be reduced or prevented by environmental factors that could affect pain modulatory systems in the brain.

Conference Objectives are:
• Describe how chronic pain can change the brain.
• Discuss how yoga can alter pain perception and change the brain.
• Explain how environmental enrichment in rodents alters nociceptive processing.

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
