There are a lot of theories around what does and doesn't work for chronic pain management. With the incidence of chronic pain increasing, more and more people are turning to alternative means to find relief from their pain. Fish oil... Turmeric... But just what does the evidence say?

I wish there was more discussion of neuropathic medication risks etc. I think the educator did an excellent job of discussing opioids, however the goal of the lecture seemed to be to support clinicians in offering alternatives to opioid pain management which leaves a little bit to be desired.
