The Safer Pain Relief Summit, sponsored by Performance Health, is a weekend-long CEU course covering instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization, kinesiology taping and therapeutic exercise to restore the human movement system while delivering research-proven pain relief. Hands-on healthcare practitioners—physical therapists, occupational therapists, chiropractors, massage therapists and athletic trainers—receive up to 14 CEUs.

“As an industry partner across numerous healthcare professions, we recognize the effort each discipline is making in the fight against opioid addiction,” said Paul Timko, Vice President, Performance Health. “However, we also see an opportunity to advance the cause by bringing a variety of hands-on healthcare professionals together to share successes, best practices and build a broader community. These summits do just that.”

Each of the 3-day summits include a keynote address, overview of Performance Health’s Safer Pain Relief program, and hands-on training with tools that are best used for non-pharmacological pain management. A recent summit held in Phoenix was led by Jay Greenstein, DC; Sue Falsone, PT, ATC; Shawn Burger, PT; and Benny Vaughn, MT, ATC.

“Attendees of the Phoenix summit gained insight on research-proven non-pharmacological pain relief techniques and hands on experience with a variety of tools they can use to position themselves as an expert in movement and pain relief,” concluded Timko.
