    Episode 166 | How To Create A Chronic Pain Support Group With James Maskell

    Episode 166 | How To Create A Chronic Pain Support Group With James Maskell

    We're placing a spotlight under chronic pain group visits. As a loyal follower of the show, you know that we tackle and raise awareness around some of the biggest and most important topics and issues affecting pain science, pain care and chronic disease. Our guest is passionate about a single solution to the biggest challenges facing healthcare and how it can eliminate the chronic disease, escalating costs, practitioner shortages, quality care affordability access, practitioner burnout, loneliness, and the physical and mental health conditions we see now. That solution is the healthcare system that functions from a group visit model. Our guest is my good friend, James Maskell.
    James is the host of a podcast and a show called the Functional Forum, which has become the world's largest integrative medicine community. He's on a mission to create structures necessary to evolve humanity beyond chronic disease, including chronic pain. He lectures internationally and has been featured on TEDx, TEDMED, the Huffington Post, and is also the Founder of Knew Health, a payer solution for chronic disease reversal. In this episode, James will provide you with the guide to creating and structuring group visits including how they originated, what they are, how to run them, how to avoid pitfalls and overcome challenges. Also, best practices for launching and facilitating a group visit, as well as online and digital tools for ongoing support. James will also discuss his book on the episode, which is called The Community Cure. It's an excellent resource if you're interested in group visits, how to structure them and how to get reimbursed for them. You can download that book by going to www.TheCommunityCure.com. I highly recommend you download it and grab your copy. Let's begin and let's learn all about group visits with James Maskell.

    Episode 165 | Physiotherapist Tom Young: Using ACT To Promote Psychological Flexibility In Physiotherapy

    Episode 165 | Physiotherapist Tom Young: Using ACT To Promote Psychological Flexibility In Physiotherapy

    As always, it's an honor to be with you. Many of you know that I'm going to be launching a new act for chronic pain course that will come out in later January. Throughout the month of January, there'll be at least one, if not four different podcast episodes with regard to ACT, which is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and the model of psychological flexibility. If you’re interested in learning more about ACT, make sure you check out the course and sign up for the wait list at the Integrative Pain Science Institute. The way you can do that, go to the IntegrativePainScienceInstitute.com and go to the Courses tab where you can sign up for the latest course release. There is a lot involved in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for the treatment of chronic pain. The general goal of ACT is to increase something that's called psychological flexibility. Psychological flexibility can be defined as the ability to contact the present moment and change your persistent behavior when doing so, serves a valued end. That basically means when your behavior serves the things that you love or the things that you value in life.
    Building patterns of behavior that promotes psychological flexibility is important to help people open up and we'll only approach some discomfort as they recover from chronic pain. Psychological flexibility is also important for practitioners to develop, particularly for a practitioner who has been trained in a traditional biomedical model of pain. If you are a practitioner who is starting to implement different types of psychologically informed care into your practice, know that psychological flexibility helps you as a practitioner drop the storyline that you're here to either fix or cure someone with pain. Instead, it places you in a position where you can walk arm and arm with someone as you help and support them through their journey to overcome pain.
    It's a very different perspective when you look at the biomedical model versus a biopsychosocial model or using ACT as a method of psychologically informed care. Here to speak to us about psychological flexibility and ACT is physiotherapist, Tom Young. Tom has worked both in the United Kingdom and Canada as a physiotherapist with a specialization in chronic pain. He lives in Canada where he's worked in an adult chronic pain service and now works with complex pediatric pain. Tom is also now leading a research project on how physiotherapists can be trained to utilize psychologically informed practice. On this episode, Tom will discuss ACT, psychological flexibility and how he uses ACT in his practice as a pain specialized physiotherapist.
    I wanted to do a quick listen or shout out. Starting 2020, if you leave me a five-star review on iTunes, I'm going to read it at the beginning of the show and mention your name. Today’s listener shout-out is for Emma who lives in Canada. Emma says, “Dr. Joe, I want to let you know how useful your emails and podcasts are for me. My chronic pain from fibromyalgia has completely turned my life upside down. I’m someone who used to exercise regularly. I cannot endure any type of exercise after developing fibromyalgia, not even gentle yoga, not even a massage. The knowledge about pain from your podcast has provided me with such an understanding of the body, the mind and pain that for the first time I feel in control over my situation. Knowledge is power. I no longer feel like I'm damaged goods and I have less anxiety about where I'm going. I am by no way 100% pain free, but I cringe at the thought of how debilitating I would be now if I had never learned about pain from your podcast. I know your focus may be on health professionals, but I'm so thankful to hear about your discussions and learn from you each week.”
    Emma, we're thankful that you tune in each week to learn about pain. I'm so happy to hear that you're empowering yours

    Episode 164 | Dr. Cormac Ryan: Is Partial Reconceptualization Of Pain A Success Or A Failure?

    Episode 164 | Dr. Cormac Ryan: Is Partial Reconceptualization Of Pain A Success Or A Failure?

    In this episode, we are exploring the outcomes of the Pain Neuroscience Education and what to do about the partial reconceptualization of pain. If you're not familiar with the term reconceptualization of pain, it can be defined by three key concepts. The first is that the pain does not provide a measure of the state of tissues. The second is that pain is modulated by many factors across somatic, psychological and social domains. Finally, the relationship between pain and tissue becomes less predictable as pain persists. Pain Neuroscience Education, Pain Neurophysiology Education, explain the pain. Pain education is all different types of terms that relate to educational interventions for patients with chronic pain.
    Pain Neuroscience Education assists patients to reconceptualize their pain away from the biomedical model towards a more biopsychosocial understanding by explaining pain biology. It's what we do here on the show. To help us understand the partial reconceptualization of pain is Dr. Cormac Ryan. He's a Professor of Clinical Rehabilitation at Teesside University in the United Kingdom. He has earned both a Masters in Physiotherapy and a PhD, where he explored the relationship between physical activity and chronic lower back pain. Ryan has published over 60 peer-reviewed journal articles and it has obtained over $1 million in research funding.
    His research interests are primarily in the era of chronic pain and its impact on patients and developing new interventions to help patients better manage their condition. He has a particular interest in the area of Pain Neuroscience Education as an intervention for patients with chronic pain. You will learn what we mean by the partial reconceptualization of pain. Is a partial reconceptualization a success or a failure? What things we can do to maximize reconceptualization and where the research needs to go next with regards to Pain Neuroscience Education? Dr.
    Ryan has also provided an interactive diagram and guide to explain the pain to patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain. Whether you're a practitioner or you're someone who's looking to overcome pain, this is something you're going to want to download and read through thoroughly. To download this diagram, all you have to do is text the word, 164Download, to the number 44222 or you can open up a new browser on your computer and type in the URL, www.IntegrativePainScienceInstitute.com/164download. I enjoyed this episode and I know you're going to enjoy it as much as I did. Let's get ready and let's meet Dr. Cormac Ryan.

    Episode 162 | Dr. Jeremy Fletcher, PT, DPT: Peer To Peer Models Of Pain Management

    Episode 162 | Dr. Jeremy Fletcher, PT, DPT: Peer To Peer Models Of Pain Management

    We will look at a case study as to how one physical therapist is creating and evolving peer-to-peer models for the treatment of chronic pain. Adults living with chronic health conditions are more likely than other adults to seek peer advice and support from those that are experiencing or have overcome similar health challenges.Peer-to-peer support can happen online or offline via email, phone or even through social media. In fact, a Cochrane review described positive outcomes in people with chronic health conditions,including a reduction in pain, disability and fatigue once self-management programs were led by lay individuals rather than licensed health professionals.
    Here to discuss peer-to-peer models for chronic pain is Dr. Jeremy Fletcher. He is a Doctor of Physical Therapy and a Professor at the University of South Alabama, Doctor of Physical Therapy Program.Prior to his career in academia, he served in the US Army as a physical therapist. He continues to serve his community through nonprofit board membership and organizational consultation with a focus on improving health-related quality of life. In addition to his role as a consultant, he’s also been trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and combines it with his treatment of physical therapy.
    In this episode,you will learn what is missing from our current management of patients with persistent pain from the social perspective of the bio psycho social model, how peer-to-peer interaction can bring value to the recovery process, the opportunities and challenges with integrating peers into clinical practice and should peers deliver clinical interventions such as the bulls eye that is used in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I'm excited to share Jeremy's work with you,as well as to discuss peer-to-peer models for the treatment of chronic pain and other health conditions. As we move in to the next year,you're going to see a lot more group programs happening both online and offline.
    With those group programs,they'll often have a peer-to-peer component, which has been very helpful for those overcoming chronic pain. We will also talk a little bit about how practitioners can infuse Acceptance and Commitment Therapy into their treatment of chronic pain and other health conditions. If you're any practitioner who treats chronic pain, make sure to hop on the waiting list for the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for Chronic Pain Program that I'll launch in mid-January. Make sure you go to the Integrative Pain Science Institute.com, click on Courses and you'll see a tab there where you can join the wait list for the ACT for Chronic Pain Program. The program is appropriate for any health and wellness professionals. Let's meet Dr. Jeremy Fletcher.

    Episode 160 | Dr. Whitney Scott: The Stigma Of Chronic Pain

    Episode 160 | Dr. Whitney Scott: The Stigma Of Chronic Pain

    We are bringing awareness to the important topic of stigma and chronic pain. People living with chronic pain are often stigmatized in healthcare settings, although they are not alone. Patients with various medical conditions, those with mental illness, people who use substances, people living with HIV, refugees, immigrants, even patients with poorly controlled diabetes can all be subjected to stigma. Here to discuss stigma and chronic pain is Dr. Whitney Scott. Whitney completed her PhD in Clinical Psychology at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. She is a post-Doctoral fellow in the Health Psychology Section within the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King’s College London. Her research focuses on psychosocial factors, including experiences of injustice and stigma related to functioning and quality of life in people with chronic pain.
    Whitney also investigates psychological treatments such as acceptance and commitment therapy for people who live in chronic pain and she is finishing up a fellowship that developed and evaluated a version of an online act for people with HIV and neuropathic pain. This is an important topic for those living with chronic pain and for the practitioners who treat them. Whitney and I appreciate you tuning in and downloading this episode. If you want to continue the conversation, make sure to join The Integrative Pain Science Institute Community Facebook Page. You can find us at www.Facebook.com/groups/IPSICommunity. Let's meet Dr. Whitney Scott and learn about stigma and chronic pain.
