Jillian Attends Pain Week in Las Vegas

Our PA Jillian Trulson PA-C attended the Pain Week medical conference in Las Vegas, Nevada from September 2- September 7, 2019. While at Pain Week she learned about the latest healthcare advances in pain management from front-line clinicians and leading medical experts in the field.

Jillian and Amber attended a variety of lectures focusing on everything from obtaining a healthy gut to chronic pain and migraines. They also took an ultrasound workshop with medical experts from Stanford University where they enhanced their ultrasound technique and skills to aide in trigger point and joint injections.

In a lecture given by the American Headache Society Dr. Nina Riggins stated that trigger point therapy and occipital blocks are considered a front-line treatment for chronic headaches and pain relief.

These medical treatments are available at Pivonka Health and Wellness as we take pride in providing our patients with researched based high-quality medical care. Jillian is looking forward to bringing back all the knowledge she gained at the week-long pain conference to better serve all the patients of Pivonka Health and Wellness!
