Research shows the importance of using the Biopsychosocial Model for Pain Management, including pain assessment, treatment, surgical assessment, and medication management. The International Association for the Study of Pain states “Pain is always a personal experience that is influenced to varying degrees of biological, psychological, and social factors” (IASP, 2020). Due to this, the psychosocial components have been an integral aspect of pain management during recent years. The interdisciplinary approach to healthcare, especially pain management, has proven beneficial not only for patients seeking care, but also for providers helping these patients survive and thrive.
This seminar will review the biological, psychological, and social factors and their interactions and how they impact pain and stress management. Dr. Jay Trambadia will discuss important clinical considerations and applied theories for treating pain patients from a biopsychosocial framework. He also will provide fundamental strategies/techniques for treating pain and stress. Dr. Jesse Lewis, DPT, OCS, CSCS will provide evidence-based physical therapy techniques for assisting pain patients.
