044 Cognitive Functional Therapy Vs. Group Therapy Plus Education

This episode covers a recent paper that compares a popular and trending approach, Cognitive Functional Therapy, against a group treatment and exercise intervention. The primary outcomes were pain and disability. The results may surprise you. Join Sandy and Cory as they discuss the findings, what to make of them, and the clinical impact. Cognitive functional therapy compared with a group-based exercise and education intervention for chronic low back pain: a multicentre randomised controlled trial (RCT).

044 Cognitive Functional Therapy Vs. Group Therapy Plus Education

043 An Interview with Dr Henrik Vaegter

In the last episode (42) a systematic review was discussed regarding the value of pre-operative measures in predicting pain post-operatively. In this episode, Dr. Henrik Vaegter, an author of that review joins us to discuss that research as well as several other fascinating topics regarding exercise and pain. In this interview we discuss topics of Exercise Induced Hypoalgesia, Conditioned Pain Modulation, and Temporal Summation of Pain, all of which are among the focus of Dr. Vaegter's research. What do the findings in these phenomenon tell us about how we should or should not address exercise in our patients with pain? Tune it to episode 43 for a very informative discussion!

042 Does Preop Pain Predict Postop Pain?

In this episode Sandy and Cory discuss a systematic review which investigated what pre operative pain tells us about a person’s propensity for post operative pain. Is it predictive? If so, would changing it matter? The discussion gets into these topics and more. Are preoperative experimental pain assessments correlated with clinical pain outcomes after surgery?

040 Does Activity Counteract Sitting?

In this month's episode we are examining more of a general health question. But it is one that is very relevant to people in pain. Much has been made of "Sitting is the new smoking" with some indications that the negative effects of sitting may not be able to be undone with exercise and activity. This study looked at that concept in particular. Join us for Episode 40. Sitting Time, Physical Activity, and Risk of Mortality in Adults. Stamatakis E, Gale J, Bauman A, Ekelund U, Hamer M, Ding D.

039 Pain Education in Low Back Pain

This paper, with results that many find very surprising, has started a bit of a buzz in the PT world. What do we make of the results? Can we trust the results? What does this mean in clinical practice? We were able to discuss these topics and more with the researchers themselves as Adrian Traeger and James McAuley were kind enough to share their time and help us navigate these new findings.

039 Pain Education in Low Back Pain

038 Living Well with Chronic Pain

Research on chronic pain tends to aim at identifying factors that are in deficit, or are the so called "risk factors" for those who develops chronic pain. In this episode, we discuss a paper that takes a different angle in looking at what factors do those people who are successfully living well with chronic pain share.

037 Brain Representations of Expectancy Violation

This episode covers a recent meta analysis looking at differences in brain patterns when an expectancy violation, thought to be important in effectiveness of exposure based therapies (see episodes 12, 15, and 31), occurs passively versus actively. Active expectancy violation is thought to be more likely to bring about a change in behavior. This research looked to see if there was a difference that could be identified in activated brain areas between the 2 conditions.

036 Mechanism Based Pain Care

In this episode, Sandy and Cory discuss a recent paper proposing a "Mechanism Based approach to physical therapy management of pain." This paper proposes 5 mechanisms to consider when managing people in pain and how some common PT interventions may impact these mechanisms. The discussion goes into some of the details of these proposals as well as some of the criticisms that have been generated with regards to the paper.
