Chronic pain continues to represent a tremendous societal burden in terms of human suffering, healthcare costs and lost productivity. While some progress has been made toward less opioid-dependent pain management approaches, there remains a need to develop and implement lower-risk strategies for controlling chronic pain. Recent evidence indicates that nutritional interventions should be included as part of a comprehensive pain management care plan. This presentation will address factors that contribute to chronic pain development and their relationship to diet and nutritional supplementation within the context of a whole-person, functional medicine approach, helping clinicians to broaden their view of this challenging aspect of patient care.

Objectives

  • Learning outcomes: Participants will be able to: • Describe key aspects of how chronic pain is generated and perpetuated • Differentiate the effects of various clinical imbalances on chronic pain • Recognize modifiable factors that contribute to chronic pain • Identify nutritional interventions that can mitigate chronic pain
