Sensitized Chronic Pain Causes Stress Responding that is Moderated by Effects of Heart Rate Variability Biofeedback on the Baroreceptor Reflex
GUEST SPEAKER: Jack Ginsberg, PhD
University of South Carolina, School of Medicine and Arnold School of Public Health
Columbia Neuropsychology Service
Pain management has emerged as a stand-alone application area based upon the circumstances surrounding the chronic pain syndrome’s development. Long-term use of opioids to manage sensitized chronic pain has severe unwanted side effects. This webinar presents the basics of a model of integrative pain management that is non-pharmacological, easily implemented, and based on patient self-empowerment.
Upon completion of the webinar, learners will be able to:
- Explain the definition of Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and HRV Biofeedback
- Explain the definition of Sensitized Chronic Pain (SCP)
- Discuss the mechanism by which HRVB reduces the stress responding associated with SCP
