The Interplay of Muscle and the Neuraxis in Spine Pain: Mechanisms, Treatment, Recovery, Prevention

Registration now open for this new seminar, directed by Dr. Neel Mehta, Dr. Roger Hartl, and Dr. Norman Marcus.  

About the Seminar:

In most spine centers, muscle pain and other soft tissue conditions are neither well understood nor part of the usual course of diagnosis and treatment. Soft tissue’s role in the etiology of spine-related pain remains poorly understood. The pathophysiology and clinical evaluation of soft tissue is lacking in the heuristic model, contributing to suboptimal outcomes.  The goal of this conference is to explore basic science and clinical approaches in the field of muscle pain management and discuss potential areas for future research and improvement.

View/print the agenda and faculty list

The seminar will educate attendees about the various types of muscle pain, their causes, and associated co-morbidities. Diagnostic and treatment protocols will be discussed.  The intended audience will be healthcare practitioners including Physicians, PA/NPs, house staff, physical therapists, acupuncturists, and chiropractors.

The course involves basic science, pathophysiology, diagnostic modalities, treatment including medication, hands-on treatment, and interventional techniques. The latest in research and new surgical techniques will also be shared. 

Most importantly, we will conduct post-conference surveys to understand impressions and beliefs after the conference, as our hope is to increase awareness of soft tissue causes of pain both locally and globally.
