Deborah Crane, MD, MPH, assistant professor and rehab physician at Harborview, reviewed medications, surgical options, injections, pumps, massage, and other treatments.

Dawn Ehde, PhD, professor and rehab psychologist, discussed different self-management strategies for decreasing and coping with chronic pain, including relaxation, pacing, hypnosis and more.
