From Mind-Body Therapies to Tylenol vs. Opioids

With Doug Merz, PT

Thursday, April 26, 6:30 p.m.

Our very popular lecture series with Merz Physical Therapy returns on the important topic of chronic pain, a debilitating condition that affects millions of Americans. Understanding pain can help move us from the source of it toward living well with our condition. Doug Merz, PT and Kelly Brouwer, DPT/ATC will discuss the nervous system’s role in generating pain, and why “alternative” pain management therapies such as exercise, massage and stress management work. Finding remedies for pain has never been more important, as opioid overdoses are rising exponentially. Doug will discuss recent research on the efficacy of opioids versus Tylenol in the treatment of chronic pain in backs, hips or knees.
