Hormone Therapy for Pain Management
This program discusses the hormone therapies in pain management that consist of: 1) replenishment of deficiencies and 2) administration for analgesia, neuroprotection, and neurogenesis. The use of hormones, including neurohormones, is intended to treat the underlying microglial activation, neuroinflammation, and neurodegeneration as opposed to symptomatic pain relief.
Faculty: Forest Tennant, MD, DrPH
