San Diego Pain Summit

Welcome back to the San Diego Pain Summit for another great year!

The San Diego Pain Summit is an international professional conference providing up-to-the-minute research in pain science and guiding participants in how to think critically as new research becomes available.

We're in our fourth year of empowering clinicians to continue effectively treating people in pain in their clinical practice with a solid knowledge base and theoretical frameworks.

The information being presented is based on the most current pain research and isn’t tied to one particular reasoning or approach. Attendees will walk away with a wealth of pain science research knowledge and clinical applications without being dependent on a specific modality or treatment protocol.

Conference presentations and workshops are sold separately. You can sign up for whatever portion you would like to attend.

I’m not sure if people out there will fully appreciate what you (the San Diego Pain Summit) are offering them. Seriously, tell everyone you can that Lorimer said, “Get There!
— Lorimer Moseley, Professor of Clinical Neurosciences and Chair in Physiotherapy, Adelaide, Australia

It was a privilege to be part of a group of people who are open to exploring pain, its meaning, and alternative paths to management. The understanding of pain and its management around the world needs a revolutionary shift — and it needs conferences like this to help promote this culture change.
