Welcome to another episode of the Dr. Lo Radio Show! I really enjoyed recording this episode, and I think you will enjoy it as well. 

Today I am chatting with Dr. Kristian Flores about understanding pain using an integrative approach.  Chronic and acute pain can be really debilitating and oftentimes we feel like we have no options except to take drugs.  This episode will provide hope and encouragement because you will get so many tools that will start to make a difference with your symptoms.  

Dr. Flores also shares about pain perceptions, the role of the brain in pain, and how to change your pain perceptions. We talk about the role of inflammation, ways to address inflammation, and advanced imaging options.  We also talk about how you can address and take control of your pain.  

If you are listening to this episode and you or someone you know are navigating through any of the health issues we discuss, I would be more than happy to support you in the journey! Feel free to reach out to me to continue this conversation: @doctor_lo
