MyoActivation is an injection-based treatment modality being used in BC for people with chronic pain. This webinar is the second in our series on the myoActivation treatment approach. Prior to viewing this webinar, we recommended you view the first webinar in this series with Dr. Greg Siren, which will provide a description of the myoActivation system of pain care.
In this webinar, Dr. Gillian Lauder will discuss myoActivation in the context of her complex pain practice at BC Children’s Hospital, using a case-based approach to highlight key differences in the utilization of myoActivation in children.
Dr. Lauder is a pediatric anesthesiologist who has been caring for children and youth with complex pain using a multidisciplinary approach for over 20 years. She has recently introduced myoActivation into her pediatric practice with transformative results both in improved patient care and in satisfaction with the health care encounter for both provider and patient.
Join us to learn:
- How all children and youth with complex pain require a multidisciplinary treatment approach to support return to function.
- When myoActivation fits as part of multidisciplinary care for selected pediatric patients.
- What types of pediatric complex pain conditions may benefit from myoActivation.
- The issues associated with an injection-based treatment in pediatric populations.
- The outcomes, so far, of pediatric patients treated with this technique.
