We have an interesting and important topic. We are discussing how to use Pain Neuroscience Education to treat PTSD and chronic pain in soldiers and veterans. My expert guest is Major Timothy Benedict. He is a physical therapist assigned to the Army Public Health Center in Aberdeen, Maryland. He's the Deputy Chief for the Advanced Analytics and Data Stewardship Division, the Clinical Public Health and Epidemiology Directorate, and assists with field investigations for the Injury Prevention Program. As part of Major Benedict's Ph.D. studies, he developed a military-specific Pain Neuroscience Education Intervention for soldiers and veterans. He also completed a randomized controlled trial examining Pain Neuroscience Education for soldiers with chronic low-back pain and post-traumatic stress.

On this episode, you'll learn all about the link between post-traumatic stress and chronic pain, how to explain the link between PTSD and pain to your patients, the evidence supporting Pain Neuroscience Education for individuals with pain and PTSD, how understanding the neuroscience of pain can help you build compassion and empathy for your patients and how this research applies to civilians such as firemen and police officers. If you've been following along with the show, you know that I often ask our guests to provide some type of free download, a quick PDF cheat-sheet or maybe something you can use in the clinic. Major Benedict has gone above and beyond any guest that's ever appeared on the show. He has provided you with a complete 44-page treatment manual on how to use Pain Neuroscience Education with soldiers and veterans.

This manual is complete with full-color illustrations, metaphors and language that is specific for this population. If you're a practitioner and you're someone who uses Pain Neuroscience Education with this particular population of clients or patients like soldiers, veterans, military, police or anyone in that realm, you're going to love getting your hands on this. It's free for you to download. All you have to do is text the word, “170 DOWNLOAD,” to the number 44222 or you can open up a new browser on your computer and you can type in the URL www.IntegrativePainScienceInstitute.com/170download and I'll send it right to your inbox for free. Let's begin with Major Timothy Benedict and learn about Pain Neuroscience Approach to treat PTSD and pain.

We are exploring how to explain central sensitization to patients using pain neuroscience education with physiotherapist, Eva Huysmans. Eva graduated with a Master's Degree in Physiotherapy and is in the middle of her PhD work. She is working on a randomized controlled trial investigating the effect of perioperative pain neuroscience education for patients undergoing surgery for lumbar radiculopathy. To date, Eva has co-authored over twenty peer-reviewed publications and a manual on pain neuroscience education for the clinician. Next to her research activities, she's working as a physiotherapist in the University Hospital in Brussels, where she helps people cope with chronic pain. During this episode, you'll learn how to recognize central sensitization in clinical practice.

How do you objectively evaluate central sensitization? Why are people with central sensitization not the only ones who need pain neuroscience education? All about the introduced term, nociplastic pain. Finally, where does pain neuroscience education fit into a treatment program and how should it be delivered? She has created manuals for clinicians to use pain neuroscience education. As part of this episode, she is providing you with a free download of a pain neuroscience education slide deck that you can use with your patients. To download this slide deck for free, all you have to do is text the word, 169DOWNLOAD, to the number, 44222 or IntegrativePainScienceInstitute.com/169Download. Let's learn all about central sensitization with Eva Huysmans.

Thanks for joining me for another episode of the show. We are talking about mindfulness and cognitive-based treatments for chronic pain management. If you've been following along with the show, you know that we talk a lot about mindfulness-based treatments for pain, as well as the various types of cognitive-behavioral approaches including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance And Commitment Therapy, mindfulness-based stress reduction and even pain neuroscience education. We have yet to explore the mechanisms as to why these approaches work or if there's one that works better for certain populations. Here to speak to us about the what, why and how of mindfulness-based chronic pain management techniques is Clinical Psychologist Dr. Melissa Day. Melissa completed her PhD in Clinical Psychology at the University of Alabama. She works as an award-winning pain researcher in Australia. Her research focuses on randomized trials to evaluate the efficacy and mechanisms of mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral interventions for the treatment of many chronic pain conditions. She also published a book titled Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Chronic Pain: A Clinical Manual, and Guide. You can find that on Amazon.

In this episode, you'll learn the rationale for applying mindfulness-based approaches for chronic pain management. How mindfulness-based approaches are unique from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. The evidence supporting mindfulness-based approaches for chronic pain management. Who might mindfulness-based treatment for chronic pain best be suited for? I know you're going to enjoy this episode because we get down into the weeds as to why mindfulness and cognitive-based treatments work for people with chronic pain or how they can help people with chronic pain cope better and more effectively. Let's begin and let's meet Dr. Melissa Day.
