This week on the Healing Pain Podcast, I had the privilege of interviewing Professor Lorimer Moseley. Whether you're a practitioner or a patient, you may very well be aware of his work, as he is one of the global leaders in the revolution to change the current paradigm around chronic pain. Professor Moseley is a Clinical Scientist investigating pain in humans. After posts at the University of Oxford and the University of Sydney, Lorimer was appointed Foundation Professor of Neuroscience and Chair in Physiotherapy at The Sansom Institute for Health Research at the University of South Australia. He's a Senior Principal Research Fellow at NeuRA and an NHMRC Principal Research Fellow. He has published over 280 articles and five books. He has given over 140 keynote or invited presentations at interdisciplinary meetings in 30 countries and has provided professional education in pain sciences to over 15,000 health professionals as well as lectures to the public. He consults to both government and industry bodies. He was awarded the outstanding mid-career clinical scientist working in a pain-related field by the International Association for the Study of Pain, was a runner up for the 2012 Australian Science Minister's Prize for Life Sciences and won the 2013 Marshall & Warren Award from the NHMRC for Best Innovative and Transformative Project. He was made a Fellow by the Australian College of Physiotherapist in 2011 and Honored Member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association at their highest level in 2014.
Today, we spoke about the biopsychosocial model of pain and he describes it in his words. We took a mini tour of psychologically performed physical therapy practice and how a practitioner can develop psychoeducational programs for their patients and contrasted some of the key differences between Explain Pain; CBT, which is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and ACT, which is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. It was a great lecture and a great talk with Dr. Moseley on the podcast. Make sure to share it out with your friends and family on social media.
