Central Sensitization Syndrome, 6-Part Video Series

Central Sensitization Syndrome (CSS) is a new concept that provides a central nervous system link between fibromyalgia, depression, post traumatic stress disorder, and potentially other chronic pain conditions. The co-occurrence of psychiatric conditions with chronic pain results in an exponentially high rate of treatment failure and requires a different, more comprehensive strategy for effective treatment.

This lecture will discuss the neurophysiologic and neuroendocrine pathways involved in CSS as well as the multitude of potential etiologies. A comprehensive treatment approach for improved outcomes in this challenging patient population will be discussed.

Dr. Gary Kaplan, Founder and Medical Director of the Kaplan Center for Integrative Medicine talks about depression and pain and why people stay in pain.
