Illness perception is defined as the cognitive representations or beliefs that patients have about their illness. It basically means that how you perceive your illness has an influence on the way you think, what you believe is possible, and perhaps most importantly, what you do moving forward. Physiotherapist Edwin de Raaij recently completed a systematic review called the Association of Illness Perception and Prognosis for Pain and Physical Function in Patients with Non-Cancer Musculoskeletal Pain. This is an important topic because illness perceptions have been associated with pain intensity as well as physical function in individuals with all types of musculoskeletal pain. Illness perception is a large part of Edwin’s current doctoral work. He dives into this important topic and shares a tool that he uses with his patients to help them understand pain.

Barbara Bald says that pain is never always physical. After being diagnosed with chronic pain, she found that healing is not just about going to various tests and taking different medications. Developing pain has much to do with patient perspective, and to overcome that could eventually also overcome chronic pain. She takes us into her journey that led her to realize the path to a pain-free life. Talking about belief systems and stress, she outlines how these things affect the way we perceive pain and healing. Ultimately, she shows us the importance of opening yourself up, to stop the resistance to pain, and allowing some of the unpleasantness to change for you.

Self-compassion is a tool that you can use to improve your well-being, your self-confidence, and your resilience. It’s one that we need to pay a lot more attention to in the world of pain care. What's interesting about self-compassion is that oftentimes it's easy for us to be compassionate towards others, but applying the same kindness to ourselves can be a real challenge. Moral development specialist and co-author of the book called The Mindful Self-Compassion Workbook, Dr. Kristin Neff, conducts research on self-compassion, a central construct in Buddhist psychology and one that had yet to be examined empirically. In addition to her pioneering research into self-compassion, she has developed an eight-week program to teach self-compassion skills. Dr. Neff discusses why self-compassion in pain care is important, not only for those living with chronic pain, but also for the practitioners who treat pain every day in the clinic.

Tackling about an interesting topic that does not often receive enough attention in the world of chronic pain management, Roshi Joan Halifax talks about the intersection of compassion and empathy in chronic pain care. She is the founder and head teacher of the Upaya Institute and Zen Center, and a pioneer in the field of end-of-life care. Growing up as a sick kid, her journey began by being surrounded with people who are in pain and fighting cancer. This gave her the opportunity to talk with caregivers, doctors, nurses, physical therapists, counselors, and psychotherapists. Expanding her knowledge, she has come to learn about opening the landscape of the best of our human qualities as we serve others. At the heart of this is the value of compassion and empathy—circling around the topic of pathological altruism, Edge States, empathic distress, contemplative practice, and mindfulness.

Traveling around Asia and in Tibet for a little bit, meditation expert Sean Fargo became fascinated by the simplicity of the life of Buddhist monks. Sean found a Dallas master who took him under his wing and taught him a lot of mindfulness exercises like mindfulness of walking, mindfulness of standing, and mindfulness of breathing. The combination of simplicity and difficulty and the Dallas master’s way of being was peaceful, radiant, and loving led Sean to think about devoting the rest of his life to cultivating this way of being in the world. Sean shares a brief overview of the four foundations of mindfulness, how to use mindfulness to deal with adversity or unpleasant feelings and experiences, and how to access or crack open the heart space and experience the full spectrum of human emotions which can help with both your pain and suffering.

Nutrition is often one of the first interventions that I recommend for pain relief, especially if you have pain from an inflammatory disease such as fibromyalgia, CRPS, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, or even headaches. Anti-inflammatory nutrition has a sound evidence base to support it, but it's often ignored when it comes to chronic pain care management. When it comes to implementing it into a physical therapy practice, nutrition is very important because most of the patients that are being treated are people who have chronic pain or other types of pain syndromes. Nutrition consultant and chef Leanne Ely discusses the anti-inflammatory nutrition and introduces a particular diet that's showing up on people's plates more and more, the ketogenic diet, which is now being explored in many clinical studies.

Pain is a feeling we’re conditioned to heal without fully understanding it first. This leads us to taking the wrong medication that we suffer more from in the end. Pain master David Butler explains not only what pain is but dives deeper into the psychosocial model of pain care. He wrote a book called Explain Pain where he went beyond the traditional way of explaining pain by tapping into the emotional, mental, and physical state of a person. David also provides examples that relate pain to numerous parts of the bodies, providing us the knowledge to take into consideration how we tend to view CBT as opposed to how it should be understood. David sheds light on the importance of education as part of treating your pain by giving scenarios and thorough yet understandable reports on pain science.

The chronic pain epidemic has opened up many doors as to the way practitioners approach pain and how the multiple systems of our body are intimately connected. It has also made us realize that this metaphor of the mind-body connection is no longer just a metaphor. Nowhere is this more exquisitely expressed than in the connection between our gut and our brain, or what is called the gut-brain axis (GBA). Your brain and gut are connected by an extensive network of neurons and a highway of hormones that are constantly providing feedback as to how hungry you are, whether or not you're experiencing stress, if you've ingested something that's bad like bacteria or a microbe, and if you're experiencing unpleasant sensations such as pain. Research suggests there exists a rich and dynamic relationship between your enteric nervous system, that's the nervous system in your gut often referred to as your second brain, and your central nervous system. This innovative construct offers both practitioners and patients a window into understanding the mind-body connection, as well as further understanding how chronic pain develops and process. Chiropractic physician and certified nutrition specialist, Dr. Jason Piken, discusses food and nutrition as it relates to the gut-brain connection, as well as a few key nutritional supplements.
