NFLPA Releases Updated Pain Management Guide

Guidelines, Resources

The National Football League Players Association (NFLPA), the union for professional football players in the NFL, has released its updated Pain Management Guide. The new guide, which has been in development for a number of years, covers a wide range of topics including: physical and restorative modalities, complementary and alternative therapies, medication, interventional therapies, regenerative therapies, pain and sleep, cannabis, psychotherapies, and more.

“The best approach to treating pain is choosing a combination of options provided by pros who collaborate on your care. Evaluate the risks and benefits of treatments and create a personal plan to maximize your performance through effective pain management.”
