Dr. Mist’s research has two foci: complementary methods for the treatment of pain and related symptoms and mechanisms of central sensitivity of pain. Dr. Mist uses acupuncture as a non-pharmaceutical probe to understand the complex changes and responses to chronic pain with a particular focus on fibromyalgia, chronic widespread pain, and temporomandibular joint disorders. He hopes that his research will provide a better understanding of central sensitivity and provide evidence for non-pharmaceutical approaches to the treatment of chronic pain.
