Monograph - Musculoskeletal Pain: Expanded Clinical Strategies

  • These strategies identify and address the underlying dysfunctions that cause and perpetuate pain; this approach is contrasted to drugs, which provide temporary relief at a high cost (both financially and in terms of side effects)
  • Gives detailed descriptions of assessments and treatments used in a functional medicine approach to pain, with special attention to clinical studies that support each
  • Covers a wide range of therapies, including nutritional and dietary approaches, botanical medicines, and spinal manipulation
  • Outlines conventional and functional medicine approaches to 4 conditions: migraine, low back pain, rheumatoid arthritis, and fibromyalgia, with case studies of how Alex Vasquez has treated each condition


“This monograph is an excellent and elaborate reminder to practitioners that musculoskeletal pain can be far more complicated than it often first appears. Dr. Vasquez has done a masterful job in weaving together the functional medicine approach to these types of disorders, providing an astute combination of clinical insights, references to evidence-based literature, reviews of best practices in manual medicine and nutrition, and practical approaches.”

- David Wickes, DC, Executive Vice President of Western States Chiropractic College
