This week, on Pain Reframed, Dr. Tim Flynn and Dr. Jeff Moore are joined by Dr. Peter O’Sullivan. Peter is Professor of Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy at Curtin University, in Perth, Australia. In addition to his teaching and research at Curtin University, he works in clinical practice as a Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist (as awarded by the Australian College of Physiotherapists in 2005). He is recognized internationally as a leading clinician, researcher and educator in the management of complex musculoskeletal pain disorders.
Tim, Jeff, and Peter discuss being authentic with patients and walking alongside with them in ways the medical industrialized complex doesn’t. Peter shares his success story of deeply caring for patients for a long time and being willing to drop his pride and ego when the patient wasn’t getting better. It’s allowed him to learn, to grow, and to, ultimately, help patients so much more.
Don’t forget to save the date: June 8-10, 2018 in Denver, Colorado, the Align Conference will be taking place, focusing on neuropathic (nerve) pain. All of the various concepts of calming the nerves down will be covered at this conference.
