Integrative Pain & Pain Science Testimonial

After getting my degree in physical therapy and practicing PT, I realized that all positive change in life – including physical rehabilitation – requires the right mindset. The Institute teaches you how to integrate the latest evidence-based, biopsychosocial treatments so you can help your patients and improve your practice. The practical training available at the Institute is changing the paradigm for treating patients with pain.

Elizabeth Lombardo, Ph.D. Clinical Psychologist

What is

Chronic pain affects more than 100 million Americans. This is more than heart disease, diabetes and cancer ​…combined.

Chronic pain consistently ranks as the number one or two reason patients seek care. Put simply, patients are suffering and they’re looking for solutions.

Their pain is real, and some search for years for an answer ...while countless others simply give up hope.

The Integrative Pain Science Institute wants to make it simple for you to change this.

Unfortunately, less than 1% of overall healthcare training is devoted to treating pain, and there is a considerable gap in contemporary pain education.

The Integrative Pain Science Institute closes this gap by teaching innovative new pain science principles that benefit your patients and improve your practice.

“Our mission is essential because the treatment of pain is rapidly shifting to a more natural approach that addresses the whole person. This is important because clinicians know the most common treatment… prescription medication, procedures, surgeries, are not long-term solutions.”

Dr.​ ​Joe​ ​Tatta​, Founder, The Integrative Pain Science Institute

Integrative Pain Science Testimonial by Kylie

Having taught community programs to educate patients on the practicalities of managing persistent pain, I recognize the need to address all aspects of health, from understanding what pain is, to learning to manage stress, to providing feasible exercises and sound evidence-based nutritional information. The courses and certification for practitioners through the Integrative Pain Science Institute promise to provide the foundation for valuable and practical evidence-based tools that we as clinicians can immediately put into practice to indeed help our patients heal their pain.
