Pain Management in Special Populations (103A)

 

Pain Management in Athletes

Brian Hainline

Pain is a common problem in athletes and often results from sport injury. Both pain and injury interfere with athletic performance and quality of life. Injury is too often pre-supposed as the causal mechanism of pain, but pain in athletes often results from a breakdown in periodization and the kinetic chain continuum, and is influenced by psychosocial stressors. This session will focus on the relationships and differences between pain and injury in athletes, and will provide a broad management strategy, the foundation of which includes defining the nature of pain, assessing the kinetic chain continuum and training schedule, and appreciating the role of psychosocial influencers. Non-pharmacologic and pharmacologic strategies will be described.
