    Prolotherapy

    Presenter: Tyna Moore, ND, DC
    Original Date: July 21, 2018

    Prolotherapy is an elegant and simple Naturopathic treatment for pain. Naturopathic Physicians have a myriad of powerful tools to manage and help heal patient’s pain. With 1 in 5 patients presenting to any doctor’s office for pain, having an understanding of the mechanism of action and applications of this therapy is an asset in the clinical setting. When addressing general pain it is important to assess and manage more than just biomechanical causes. Inflammation, immune, hormonal and GI contributions must all be considered. When addressing true biomechanical pain, therapies like Prolotherapy are natural, potent and lasting.
    Substances like local anesthetics and dextrose injectable will be discussed..

  • Topical Pain Medications

    Presenter: Natalie Gustafson, PharmD
    Original Date: July 21, 2018

    The numerous issues with oral analgesics are well known. Many patients do not get adequate pain relief from these medications, while struggling with significant adverse effects that limit their use. Some patients need to take opioids, risking dependence, constant dose escalation and possible addiction just to get pain relief.
    Not all pain conditions can be helped with topical pain medications, but many conditions involving neuropathy, spasms, muscle or joint pain can benefit from local application of these analgesics. Studies have shown minimal risk for systemic absorption so minimal adverse effect profile along with higher local concentrations than when used orally to increase benefit. Knowing when these topical pain medications might be useful is a great tool in treating your patients struggling with pain.
    This talk will discuss the different medications that have been studied for topical use, along with literature discussion and how they work. Lastly, we’ll go through case studies on how to design these combination topical pain medications for practical use.

  • Patterns of Pain, and Perineurial Regenerative Injections

    Presenter: Kevin Wilson, ND, DAAPM
    Original Date: July 22, 2018

    When presented with a patient in pain, a thorough examination and survey of potential pain generators needs to be completed. Different tissue types refer pain in characteristic ways that help the practitioner better determine what the problem is and how to treat it. A comprehensive understanding of anatomy and classic physical examination is often far better at reaching an effective diagnosis and good outcome than any particular imaging technique, and far more reassuring to the patient.

  • Pain of Vertebral Origin: The Most Common Patterns Seen in Clinical Practice

    Presenter: Payson Flattery, ND, DC, DAAPM
    Original Date: July 22, 2018

    Clinical practice often presents challenges in effectively diagnosing and treating pain originating from the vertebral column. The spine refers pain in a few complex yet predictable patterns to the upper back, shoulders, hips and lower extremities. These patterns offer a road map back to pathological spinal segments. Once the spinal segment is identified this pain can be effectively and comprehensively treated. If the spinal segment is not addressed only transient reduction in symptomotolgy is experienced. This lecture will give the clinician effective diagnostic criterion as well as multiple treatment modalities for more successful outcomes.

  • Peptide Therapy: Adjuncts to Pain Syndromes and Multi-System Dysfunction

    Presenter: Chris A. Kleronomos, FNP-BC (DAAPM), DAOM-L.Ac., RH (AHG), MSc. (ABAAHP)
    Original Date: July 22, 2018

    Chronic Pain Syndromes are complex disease states characterized by multi-system dysfunction and a high degree of co-morbidity and symptomology. Given the difficult nature of treatment, limited available option for recalcitrant conditions and problems with polypharmacy and special populations, safer more effective treatments are necessary.
    Peptides represent a treatment methodology which can address root causes of illness via multi-system modulation and restoration.
    Peptides:
    Selank and Semax; GHRP & GHSP; BPC; Hcg/AOD; Thymosin; DSIP; Epithalon.
