Dietary Supplements for Pain Management
Dietary supplement approaches are theoretically an attractive option due to their ability to modulate pain through reducing deficiency, oxidative stress and inflammation. Unfortunately, the many options available as well as confusion regarding how to choose among them makes this an option one that is often sub-optimally utilized. This presentation will examine the current evidence behind supplements as well as how they can be incorporated with dietary modification to optimize pain.

This session will review yoga meanings and uses that may be proven significantly helpful in chronic pain management. In the session attendees will develop self awareness through breathing and focusing techniques, using the breath as a focal point and learn to asses how to work with chronic pain, thus learning to tolerate discomfort in a relaxed/calm/peaceful way (no force) starting in the most gentle way and gradually building up to a more active practice (carefully sequenced) as the intensity of pain diminishes.
