We're joined by physiotherapist Carolyn Vandyken and we're discussing how to implement effective pain education and other psychosocial interventions into the practice of physical therapy and others who are helping people with chronic pain. Carolyn has been a practicing physical therapist specializing in orthopedics and pelvic health for decades. In addition to being a licensed physiotherapist, Carolyn is also certified in the McKenzie method and acupuncture as well as a certificate in cognitive behavioral therapy.
In addition to clinical practice, Carolyn is heavily involved in postgraduate pelvic health education, research in lumbopelvic pain, speaking at numerous international conferences as well as writing books and chapters on pelvic health, orthopedics, and pain science. In this episode, you'll learn why pain education is essential for the treatment of chronic pain as well as how to implement other bio-psychosocial interventions such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and mindfulness for the treatment of chronic pain. Without further ado, let's begin, and let's meet Carolyn Vandyken.
