2020 IART/HHPF Prolotherapy Conference

October 23, 2020 to October 25, 2020

Activity Overview

The IART conference has invited renowned faculty to give presentations and participate in a panel to give answers to tough questions about prolotherapy, PIT, regenerative injections, and the use of ultrasound prolotherapy techniques.

Elements of Comptence

This CE activity has been designed to change learner competence and focuses on the American Board of Medical Specialties areas of patient care and procedural skills, medical knowledge, and practice-based learning and improvement. 

Statement of Need

The treatment of chronic pain is a complex, multifaceted problem. The faculty of this activity offer participants detailed instruction in the use of prolotherapy to treat laxity of ligaments that often cause chronic myofascial pain. Due to more active lifestyles, an aging patient population, and patient desire for relief of chronic pain, prolotherapy is an elegant, effective and safe treatment.

Target Audience

This educational activity has been designed to meet the needs of physicians. and those practitioners who manage patients through the diagnosis and treatment of chronic pain due to ligament instability.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Cite specific studies and the evidence base supporting beneficial outcomes for prolotherapy treatment and perineural treatment for chronic musculoskeletal pain.
  • Explain to patients the value of specific regenerative therapies to treat chronic musculoskeletal pain.
  • Explain and follow safety measures and appropriate patient positioning and injection techniques for performing basic prolotherapy and perineural injection therapy for their patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain.
  • Perform more accurate diagnostic physical exams of patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain of the lower extremity. 
  • Apply their history and physical exam information to formulate an effective treatment plan that is evidence based and includes the regenerative techniques taught for chronic lower extremity musculoskeletal pain.
  • Effectively treat the majority of their patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain of the lower extremity without using opioids or invasive surgery.
