    052 Beyond the BPS Model?

    052 Beyond the BPS Model?

    In this episode, Sandy and Cory take a look at this popular publication from 2019 proposing an "Enactive Approach" to pain. There's a lot to cover in this paper as it takes us through a history of pain science up to the Biopsychosocial model at which point it proceeds to point out some flaws in the model. GASP! Take a listen as the discussion unfolds.

    050 Pain Flare-Up

    Pain flare-ups are one of the most frustrating things for patients and clinicians alike. Are they normal? Who gets them? Why is it important to know their prevalence? What are Sandy and Cory's thoughts on dealing with them?  All this and more in episode 50!

    049 Contemplating Possibilities and the Impermanence of Pain

    049 Contemplating Possibilities and the Impermanence of Pain

    We are joined in this episode by Professor Lorimer Moseley AO for a casual chat about pain. Lorimer gave us his thoughts on recent and future clinical research and the translation of the evidence into the clinic.  Is there an expiration date for recovery from persistent pain? How can we enhance learning the things that matter? Was it a mistake to think that we could/should explain pain? Does Sandy work pelvic health examples into this conversation?

    047 Is It Safe For Women To Lift Heavy Things?

    047 Is It Safe For Women To Lift Heavy Things?

    Is it safe to exercise and lift heavy things for people with pelvic organ prolapse symptoms? Or put more bluntly, will lifting heavy weights make your lady bits fall out? Is lifting weight asking for trouble? That is the question that our guest this month is seeking to answer and Sandy and Cory sit down to ask some questions about her recently published cross sectional study that is a start to this research. There are some important implications of this and potentially some misconceptions that are driving current approaches. Please listen as we are joined by physiotherapist and PhD candidate, Lori Forner for this episode of Pain Science and Sensibility.

    Symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse in women who lift heavy weights for exercise: a cross-sectional survey.

Great just wish they listed pubmed siting

Understand they can't list article as free, but can we get pubmed listing in title of each session?

Fun exploration of research!

I love Sandy and Cory’s approach to diving in deep on these research papers. I have learned so much from listening to this podcast. Not only have I learned about topics, but I have also gained confidence and insight into reading the research on my own. Thanks for a great show and a great service! - Amy from RestoringVenus.com
