This webinar will highlight the evidence regarding Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) for chronic pain, particularly chronic low back pain. As new information (often conflicting and confusing) is constantly arising, evidence based practice principles will be demonstrated to analyze the validity strength of specific evidence and the clinical significance of study findings. Various CAM therapies will be covered including:
** Natural Products (e.g., "Devil's Claw" and Glucosamine)
** Mind-Body Practices (e.g. Yoga and Mindfulness)
** Manipulative and Body Practices (e.g. Spinal Manipulation, Massage Therapy, Acupuncture and Prolotherapy)
** Whole Medical Systems (e.g. Ayuvedic, Traditional Chinese and Homeopathic Medicine)
Summary recommendations for integrative care will give direction to answering your patient's question, "Doc, what else can I do?"
