It's a pleasure to be spending this time with you. In this episode, we're talking about the latest in pain science and pain education with our expert guest Dr. Carey Rothschild. Carey is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physical Therapy at the University of Central Florida. In addition to earning her DPT degree, she is also board certified in Orthopedic Physical Therapy and in Sports Physical Therapy and earned a certificate of achievement in Pelvic Physical Therapy. Her research related to running and the female athlete has been published in The Strength & Conditioning Journal, The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, Sports Health and the Journal of Women's Health Physical Therapy.
In 2019, Carey received the award for Excellence in Academic Teaching from the Florida Physical Therapy Association. A big part of that was for her innovation in developing and teaching one of the nation's first pain mechanisms and treatment and rehabilitation courses for both physical therapists as well as other healthcare professionals. In this episode, we'll discuss the foundational and important aspects of pain science, pain education and the steps Dr. Rothschild took to create a course on pain science education at the university level. Also, how she has expanded the delivery of pain education not only for physical therapy students but also for other healthcare professionals such as social workers.
Before we begin, I wanted to let you know that Dr. Rothschild has joined the Integrative Pain Science Institute as a faculty and educator. As part of her joining, she has two offerings that I want to share with you. The first one is a free masterclass on pain science education. If you like what you read, stick around or if you're on our mailing list, be on the lookout for an email with regard to a pain science education masterclass. It's a 40-minute masterclass where Dr. Rothschild reviews a case study on a 45-year-old female with chronic pelvic and lower back pain.
This is appropriate for both physical medicine professionals as well as mental health professionals. Keep an eye out for a unique course offering that Carey’s delivering through the Integrated Pain Science Institute. It is called Pain Education for the Health Care Professional. This is a six-week, seven-hour CEU activity where you learn the latest in pain science, as well as pain education and how to effectively assess and treat the multi-dimensional nature of pain.
That's a six-week course. It's worth seven CEs/CEUs. It's called Pain Education for the Healthcare Professional. Make sure you're on the mailing list too. Go over to IntegrativePainScienceInstitute.com and hop on our mailing list. You can opt-in anywhere to receive our emails and you'll receive updates both on the pain science education masterclass, as well as the Pain Education for the Healthcare Professional CEU course and activity. Without further ado, let's begin and let's meet Dr. Carey Rothschild.
