Ask a Physical Therapist | Dr. Tom Walters on Pain Treatment, Part 2
In the second part of this conversation on pain, physical therapist Dr. Tanice Kitchener and Dr. Tom Walters continue their deep-dive into pain science: What we have learned about what causes pain, why it is so individualized, and how to tame it. The scientific and medical communities have experienced a significant increase in knowledge and understanding of the human pain experience. Learn how new tools can support your journey to live a pain-less or pain-scarce life by changing pain thresholds, reframing your experience and using graded activity exposure. Part 1 is focused on the how and why of the pain experience itself, and Part 2 expands on treatment and coping strategies. Tom Walters, PT, DPT is a board-certified orthopedic physical therapist and educator, owner of Rehab Science, an online platform dedicated to providing evidence-based musculoskeletal rehabilitation resources, and author of Rehab Science - How to Overcome Pain and Heal from Injury, which includes rehab protocols for common injuries.
