F4CP® Hosted Press Briefing at National Press Club

On March 14, 2017, the F4CP hosted a press briefing at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, to improve pain-care in America.

Key Presenters Included:

  • Marc Siegel, MD, Professor of Medicine, New York University School of Medicine, Medical Director of Doctor Radio at NYC and SiriusXM, FOX News Medical Correspondent, Columnist for Los Angeles Times, New York Post, Slate,, National Review Online, Forbes Online, and Member of the Board of Contributors, USA Today
  • Wayne Jonas, MD, Executive Director, Samueli Integrative Health Programs
  • David Thomas, PhD, Program Officer, Division of Epidemiology, Services and Prevention Research, National Institute on Drug Abuse
  • Linda Porter, PhD., Director, NIH's Office of Pain Policy and Co-Chair of the National Pain Strategy and Federal Pain Research Strategy Steering Committees
  • Jan Chambers, President, National Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Association (NFMCPA)

"Chiropractors are not the problem," said Dr. Siegel. "In fact, zero percent of chiropractors actually prescribe opioids... Primary care doctors are responsible for 28 percent of the problem, and let me tell you why: someone comes to us for back pain, and maybe we understand that the back is a tight compartment of muscle, nerve and bone, but maybe we don't know which is causing the problem... So, what do primary care doctors do? They start trying to medicate to get the patient feeling better."
