This educational activity has been designed to meet the needs of physicians, (MDs, DOs, NDs and Podiatrists) who manage patients through the diagnosis and treatment of chronic pain due to ligament instability. Specialties that would benefit from this conference are those that care for patients with pain, including Family Medicine, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Sports Medicine, Internal Medicine, Orthopedic Medicine and Surgery, Anesthesiology, Podiatry and Pain Management.
The Anatomy, Diagnosis, and Treatment of Chronic Myofascial Pain with Prolotherapy will be one day of lectures on theory, anatomy and prolotherapy techniques, followed by a day of hands on workshops followed by another half day of lectures and panel discussions. There will also be two Advanced Topics sessions for those attendees that are experienced injectors. The conference will have a Research Symposium which will entail presentations of research projects, methods to begin new research projects and means to collaborate research among facilities, all in prolotherapy.
Research Symposium purpose: It has been an active and exciting year in injection medicine. In this year’s symposium, speakers will review recently published clinical research on prolotherapy and related injection therapy and bring you the latest information of studies now in progress. This annual meeting is designed to bring together clinicians, clinical researchers and basic scientists interested in research of prolotherapy and related injection therapies. Each speaker is an active clinician and/or researcher who will present completed or ongoing findings. The overall tone of the conference is participatory and collaborative. Our primary goal is to facilitate a high level of understanding of current research and to stimulate further work among and between researchers and interested clinicians.
The needs will be addressed by the use of lectures, extensive anatomy review, discussion, demonstrations and practice injections on cadavers with C-arm guidance, and viewing of injection videos with a faculty member and model. The hands-on workshops will enable the conferee to have practical training in palpation and marking for prolotherapy. Discussions of prolotherapy indications and complications along with a panel discussion of complicated cases will enhance the participant’s learning.
