This is our last episode in The Radical Relief series. It’s bittersweet for me to end this series because I enjoyed speaking to these great clinicians, researchers and academics that are using Pain Neuroscience Education, mindfulness, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I want to take a moment to express my deepest gratitude to each speaker who appeared during this series and share their great information starting with Adriaan Louw, Davide Lanfranco, Mary Doyle, Annette M. Willgens, Lilian Dindo, Mary Grant, and our guest, Andrea Moore. If you’ve missed any episode in this series, make sure you go back to December 30th, 2020, with episode 209. You can start there and then work all the way through each episode until you arrive at this episode.
I’m joined by Andrea Moore, who is a physical therapist and a recovering health perfectionist. Early in her career, she focused on trying to fix everything that seemed to be wrong with her. She’s dealt with chronic pain, post-concussive syndrome, anxiety, depression, and ADD. She now helps other overwhelmed women suffering from chronic pain to achieve a healthy and active lifestyle. In this episode, you’ll learn all about chronic pain and how perfectionism contributes to chronic pain, as well as Andrea’s evolution from becoming a doctor of physical therapy, implementing nutrition, and now informing her practice with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
If you’re interested in learning how to combine these multimodal approaches that we discuss on this episode, including Pain Neuroscience Education, mindfulness, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, make sure to check out my latest book, Radical Relief: A Guide to Overcome Chronic Pain, which is available on Amazon. Let’s begin and meet Dr. Andrea Moore, and learn all about the connection between perfectionism and chronic pain.
