Welcome back to Pain Reframed! This week, Dr. Kory Zimney joins us from the University of South Dakota (Tim’s old stomping grounds where he grew up!). Dr. Zimney has been practicing physical therapy since 1994, following his graduation from the University of North Dakota with his Masters in Physical Therapy. He completed his transitional DPT graduate from the Post Professional Doctorate of Physical Therapy Program at Des Moines University, Class 2010. He moved into full time academics in 2013. Past clinical work experiences have been with various community-based hospitals working in multiple patient care areas of inpatient, skilled rehab, home health, acute rehab, work conditioning/hardening and outpatient. He also was department manager of rehabilitation services at St. Luke's Health System in Sioux City for 8 years. He still maintains clinical practice one day a week at Mercy Business Health Services in Sioux City, IA working with outpatient work related injuries and providing on-site loss prevention and ergonomics services for local businesses. He also teaches nationally with International Spine and Pain Institute.
Kory discusses the teaching of pain and how we can get better at managing patients with persistent pain. Tim, Jeff, and Kory also have an important discussion about building trust in therapeutic alliance.
