Event/Session Summary

Updates of Musculoskeletal Pain: Fascia, Inflammation, Neuroplasticity and Microbiome

Full Day SIG Satellite Symposium
Hosted By: Musculoskelatal Pain SIG

This symposium will feature up to date research on musculoskeletal medicine. This will include the our growing understanding of the functional rather than the structural role of fascia; the role of lifestyle factors in reducing inflammation and enhancing healing; our changing understanding of neuroplasticity and the connection of neuroplastic changes and movement; and the relationship between the microbiome composition and major determinants of musculoskeletal pain. We will hear from experts and have time for questions and discussion.
