LPT team development session – ‘The science of pain’
Our team caught up with David Moen from Form Physiotherapy recently to explore the ‘science of pain’. Dave comes from a background working with chronic pain patients and was able to share some of his experiences and stories to help us better understand how pain is produced in our brains and what we can do to improve the outcomes for clients who have pain which limits their mobility and capacity to exercise. One of the fun drills we did on the day was comparing the difference between brushing our teeth with our preferred arm and then non – preferred and relating this to retraining our brains for pain free movement…….
