National Spine & Pain Centers (NSPC) recently teamed up with Pivot Physical Therapy to host a lecture for physical therapy providers. Dr. Rodney Dade and Dr. Robert Wagner from our Fairfax and Tysons Corner, VA offices spoke about the role of regenerative medicine in the treatment of acute and chronic pain. The program was conducted at NSPC’s Virginia Corporate office at Fairfax on Feb. 10, 2018. It was a follow-up lecture to the MDT Journal Club Meeting held on July 29, 2017.

The lecture focused on:

The role of regenerative medicine in the treatment of acute and chronic pain
The decision-making process toward utilizing regenerative medicine
The therapy protocol and the rationale for the protocol

The program was promoted to physical therapists around the Washington DC Metro area. Eighteen physical therapists from 10 different practices attended the program and provided great conversation and questions.
