2020 Prolotherapy Treatment in Honduras

March 7, 2020 to March 13, 2020

Despite the fact that prolotherapy is a highly effective treatment for various chronic pain syndromes, many practitioners are inadequately familiar with and skilled in performing this treatment in clinical practice.

Care of the patient with chronic pain is common in both the US and in underdeveloped settings.  This conference will train physicians to care for patients with this diagnosis with safe, effective and economical methods of prolotherapy.  Since 1969, this group (Hackett Hemwall Patterson Foundation) has been conducting annual service missions to Honduras, serving their dual commitment of providing free care to suffering people, and accomplishing the hands-on training that is indispensable to learning Prolotherapy.
