Learning Objective

As a result of participating in this activity, learners will be better able to:

  • Apply an improved understanding as to the roles of inflammation, neurogenic inflammation, and neuroinflammation to manage acute and chronic pain

Overview

  • How acute LBP is becoming chronic
  • How Low Back Pain (LBP) Can be a societal and clinical problem
  • Risk factors for the chronification of LBP
  • The importance of prostaglandins and cytokines as targets of therapeutic intervention
  • The Effectiveness of epidural steroid injections after new injury

Accreditation & Designation

Neurovations Education is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Neurovations Education designates this other activity (blended learning) for a maximum of 0.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
