What if we adjusted our relationship to pain, shifted from antagonistic villain to teacher? This lecture will share a perspective that aims to reshape how we relate to pain, through three main entry-points: nociception (communication of threat stimuli from periphery to body), tissue adaptation (ALL tissues adapt), and movement (because what we do, and what we DON’T do, are signals to the body telling it what you want from it).
Within each of these topics, we’ll explore various concepts that will clarify the role of these three topics in shaping how you relate to pain. We’ll be pulling from worlds of neuroscience, physical rehab, clinical & experimental research, physiology, psychology, and even philosophy, to explore relevant ideas such as body maps, the placebo effect, tendinopathy, connective tissue, evidence-based medicine, and more.
