Brian Hainline, MD, is chief medical officer of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) where he oversees the NCAA Sport Science Institute, a national center of excellence whose mission is to promote and develop safety, excellence, and wellness in college student-athletes, and to foster life-long physical and mental development. Dr. Hainline will address AAPM 2020 meeting attendees on Friday, February 28, during General Session II.

Dr. Hainline will draw on his more than 30 years’ experience in sports medicine

Sports-related injuries are a common reason why patients access healthcare and seek out pain medicine professionals. Dr. Hainline’s presentation to AAPM meeting attendees will draw upon his more than 30 years in sports medicine to inform and engage attendees about the interplay of sports injury, pain, and modifiable risk factors for prolonged pain.

The non-pharmacologic pain management toolkit includes psychosocial interventions

From skills training (goal setting, imagery, relaxation, positive self-statements) to psychologically informed physical therapy, Dr. Hainline plans to educate providers about how they can incorporate cognitive-behavioral strategies into their practices as valuable  pain management treatment tools. Dr. Hainline will also discuss the evidence base to support the use of other non-pharmacologic treatment therapies, such as massage, exercise, acupuncture, and more.

Guiding principles for pharmacologic pain management, including opioid prescribing considerations and risk mitigation strategies

Prescription medications are only one component of managing pain, and Dr. Hainline will share considerations and guidelines to help assess if medications would be useful and the manner in which they should be prescribed when treating sports-related pain.
