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.

Born and raised in Colorado, I have a passion for travel and being outdoors. Biking, skiing, snowboarding, waterskiing, sledding, hiking...anything outdoors brings me peace. I am so grateful to be in a career which allows me to help others maximize their physical abilities so that they may also enjoy the calling of nature or whatever their own passions may be. As a child, I grew up spending summer weekends on the Frying Pan River at my Great Grandparents' cabin and am thrilled to be back in the Roaring Fork Valley.
