This will include understanding the comorbidities associated with pain and the innovative therapies and interventional techniques to address these issues. The conference will inform the attendees with several of the latest non opioid treatment strategies like trans-cranial magnetic stimulation and stem cell therapy. It will also provide information regarding the integration of traditional medicine techniques and nutritional therapies in pain management and impart an understanding on novel pharmaco-therapeutics such as CRGP and cannabinoids in the treatment of pain.
