Watch Webcast Now!

One of the most common symptoms among patients with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis is pain, but there is very little research on therapeutic approaches for pain in the IBD population. This program will provide patients and loved ones with information on causes of pain in IBD, and discuss various therapies that may provide relief. This webcast discusses the overlap between IBD and IBS, and how research on IBS may inform treatment of pain in IBD.
