For physicians, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, clinicians, acupuncturists, psychologists, yoga and mindfulness teachers, caregivers, and other healthcare professionals who treat patients living with chronic pain.
Join distinguished neuroscientists, physicians, physiotherapists, yoga researchers, expert authors, and yoga and mindfulness teachers in a dynamic, multifaceted educational experience curated for professionals interested in an integrative approach to the treatment of chronic pain from a collaborative and multidisciplinary perspective.
Chronic pain is an enormous crisis—debilitating more Americans than cancer, diabetes, and heart disease combined—and is now seen as a disease in its own right. Our nation is affected by opioid addiction and restriction, and the increasing evidence of the failure of synthetic drugs.
Groundbreaking, inspiring, and thought-provoking, this conference is unlike anything that has been offered elsewhere. Based upon current research and best practices, this embodied “change” conference provides practical information—including alternatives to pain medication—and the research behind it. Experience five themed days of lectures, panel discussions, special topic breakout sessions, experiential classes and learning workshops focused on
- The Neuroscience of Pain: Why and How Things Hurt
- Mindfulness and Alleviating Suffering
- The Science of Yoga and Balancing the Body’s Response to Stress
- Connection, Compassion, and Challenges
- The Future of Chronic Pain Care: Healing the Patient, the Provider, and the System
Throughout the week, Kripalu also offers experiential solutions to the challenging burnout that impacts providers today in workshops on self-care, building resilience, food as medicine, and Ayurvedic rejuvenation.
Come be a part of the conversation at this critical point in healthcare, and bring home tools and techniques to empower you and your patients or clients dealing with chronic pain.
