This show is based on the Explain Pain course by David Butler. I discussed the importance of the features of the therapist, patient, message, and context/environment when explaining pain to the patient. The importance of letting the patient speak and really hearing their story and using that when explaining pain. I also gave some helpful metaphors and stories that I use when explaining pain. Plus I was very happy to have a special caller, Barrett Dorko, PT. He of course had some great thoughts on all of this…but you will have to tune in to find out!
