Pain Reframed is a podcast about pain and how pain is managed in our society. Pain is a large issue right now and we will bring powerful and helpful insights on how we can manage pain in a much more efficient and effective way. Pain Reframed is committed to changing language and practice patterns across disciplines and points of care in order to reduce the unnecessary suffering that results from the propagation of misinformation, insufficient understanding of the pain experience, and the over-medicalization of pain in society. Dr. Tim Flynn and Dr. Jeff Moore will share their expertise, as well as the expertise from others in the medical and psychological fields, about pain management and our roles in dealing with pain. We want to create a sustainable, multi-disciplinary, international conversation on pain.
141: From Bench to Bedside: Pain Modulation Research | Kirsty Bannister
On this week's episode Liz and Jeff speak with Dr. Kirsty Bannister, a renowned researcher on conditioned pain modulation, about what we know, what we’re studying, and what we can look forward to in the future of this topic.
Kirsty completed BSc, MRes and PhD degrees at University College London and and Imperial College before returning to UCL for a decade-long postdoctoral research position in the laboratory of Professor Anthony Dickenson. In 2017 Kirsty gained her faculty position upon joining King’s College London where she now runs her research group investigating the central modulation of pain. Specifically Kirsty's research team bridges the gap between bench and bedside pain research by conducting exploratory experiments that seek to molecularly, anatomically and/or functionally define descending control pathways in rodent and man using electrophysiology and human psychophysics respectively. Kirsty has led multiple symposia at world pain congresses including IASP and EFIC and she also performs Section Editor duties for multiple pain-related journals.

This is an absolutely wonderful podcast with a cornucopia of useful information.
I have only one suggestion to make it a little bit better. Jeff’s enthusiastic questioning can feel a little hyper sometimes. Just slowing down your speech little bit would make an enormous difference.
Very important information
Great information for clinicians who treat chronic pain and those who suffer from it. I recommend it to all that I think would benefit.
Come for the intro, stay for the content
I don’t know what it is about the Pain Reframed theme music that gets me so hyped up! Maybe it’s because I know there are some pretty great clinical pearls to follow. I started a few weeks ago on episode 1, and have rapidly been trying to catch up to current. I can definitely say that each episode has been better than the last.
