Integrative Therapies in Treatment of Chronic Pain

As many of you know, I have a clinical interest in integrative therapies in healthcare treatment. An interesting segment on chronic pain and its treatment aired on the 11/09/07 Today Show. Click here to view the video. Chronic pain is a huge issue in terms of quality of life, worker productivity, and overall health and wellbeing in the U.S. today. It is estimated that over 50 million people in the U.S. suffer from chronic pain conditions. Like many other maladies, chronic pain usually is not curable, but is treatable. We need to open our minds to integrating age old wisdom together with high tech medicine to acheive the best possbile outcomes.
