Excellent Info

This podcast is clearly geared towards those who are in the field of patient care for a pain population. It’s informative, cutting-edge and relevant; always with excellent information. A must for any clinician who treats folks in pain. As a member of the AAPM, I appreciate this extra service. One suggestion would be to be inclusive with non-medical options, particularly chiropractic. In the error of opiate overprescribing, it only makes sense to regularly involve the world’s largest drug-free healing art in the conversation.

I recently listened to the "Pain Management" podcast and was thoroughly impressed. The host is knowledgeable and passionate about the topic, and presents information in an easy-to-understand manner. The guests they bring on the show are experts in their field and provide valuable insights and practical tips for managing chronic pain. I appreciate the focus on both traditional and alternative therapies, as well as the emphasis on self-care and mental health. Overall, this podcast is a great resource for anyone looking to improve their pain management strategies. Highly recommend!
