EIM Clinical Podcast: Reconciling Biomechanics with Pain Science | Greg Lehman

November 22, 2017 • Pain Science • John Childs

This week, on the EIM Clinical Podcast, Dr. Jeff Moore and Dr. John Childs are joined by Dr. Greg Lehman. Jeff recently returned from Greg’s course: “Reconciling Biomechanics with Pain Science” in Toronto. This course dives into classic debates of physical therapy in conservative musculoskeletal care as well as performance and rehab. It’s two packed days full of this content and is absolutely amazing and educational.

Greg, Jeff, and John discuss, not only his course, but also incredible and helpful information surrounding these topics and a case study that can even use your thoughts!

Although, as you say, there is no discernible movement abnormality I wonder if there is something related to Functional Motor Disorders (FMD) but on the sensory side. Some of the strategies from Nielsen, et al (2014) are ones that would not only apply to enhanced motor control but also improved sensory feedback and integration, which might be influencing your patient, in part. Best of luck! https://drive.google.com/a/movethrurehab.com/file/d/0B2egxhQ64DWFRk1YLWlob01RVGM/view?usp=drivesdk

I wanted to comment on the case that Greg is working on. Has the patient tried any meditation or mindfulness activities to help with reducing the anxiety that is associated with his feeling of his pelvis and shoulder feeling "out"? On the surface to me it sounds like he has hypersensitivity in those areas and maybe he can calm the nervous system to help decrease that sensitivity. An application that I suggest to patients of my own is Headspace. It is a good app that helps teach patients about acknowledging thoughts and teaching them to not dwell on the "bad" thoughts as well as provide instructions for calming the mind. It seems like the patient's key issue is dealing with the anxiety. I hope to hear more about this case in the future! Loved listening to the podcast!
