Every doctor considers every patient as a case study in and of itself, and that every patient has a different way of defining the pain they are feeling. Dr. Jarod Hall explains how group discussions among patients transform into a healing environment where a physical therapy session isn’t just another day of exercising. Learn why doctors need to create constant dialogues with patients to lessen the fear of the pain they are feeling.
Pain is multi-factorial. Addressing the complex nature of chronic pain by a skilled clinician is vitally important. The best research indicates that physical therapy informed from a biopsychosocial model of care is most effective. Within that framework, there are many treatments to choose from. The current challenge lies not only in predicting who will best respond to one approach over another, but in understanding the process that explain how or why specific therapies work.
Joining us is Dr. Jarod Hall, who is a licensed Doctor of Physical Therapy. His clinical focus is in orthopedics with an emphasis on therapeutic neuroscience education and the purposeful implementation of foundational principles of exercise in the management of both chronic pain and athletic injuries. He’s an adjunct Faculty Professor at the University of North Texas Health Science Center in their Doctorate of Physical Therapy program. He assesses and treats orthopedic injuries, pain science and manual therapy and educates on that at the university there. Additionally, he’s a blogger whose work has focused on how to succeed in the clinical environment as a new graduate physical therapist, debunking common exercise and rehab myths, manual therapy and pain science education.
