In this episode, we're discussing how to bridge the gap that exists between a person and pain, their ability to move beyond suffering and back to life through applying both modern pain science principles, and the ancient wisdom of yoga. Yoga is a practice that is more than 5,000 years old, and the field of pain science is probably more than 40 years old. However, when brought together, both of these methods and techniques offer each other enormous resources and wisdom for the treatment of pain and many other chronic health conditions. Joining me to discuss the combination of pain neuroscience with yoga for effective pain care are physical therapists Niamh Moloney and Marnie Hartman. Niamh is a physiotherapist, pain researcher, and yoga teacher. Marnie is a physical therapist, a certified strength and conditioning specialist, and a registered yoga teacher.
Both have a special interest in pain neuroscience and how to use yoga for effective pain care. In this episode, we discuss how to apply modern pain or science to yoga and yoga therapy, the similarities between yoga and a modern pain science approach, how to optimize both the mind and the body for effective pain relief, and whether or not mindful movement is more effective than general physical activity for pain management. Together, Niamh and Marnie wrote a great book called Pain Science-Yoga-Life, you can find that on Handspring Publishing, make sure to check that out. Without further ado, let's begin this episode and learn about pain neuroscience and yoga for effective pain care.
