Summary

Over 20 years after its beginnings, the worldwide opioid crisis continues to take its toll on patients, families, nations, industries, and the global economy. Finally, non-opioid, and even non-pharmacological, pain management strategies are gaining serious recognition in the fight against the overutilization of prescription opioids, our underlying cultural issues surrounding pain, and the plague this has caused. Physical therapy offers patients, prescribers, and health insurers safer ways to manage pain, offering a beacon of hope in a bleak landscape. This course is designed to support the Mayor’s public health priority of responsible opioid prescribing and effective pain management by providing an understanding of the underpinnings of the opioid crisis and how we can leverage evidence based physical therapy to help stop the crisis at its source.
