Unpopular opinions in pain management and Physiotherapy – Episode 1

Inicio » Artículos » Unpopular opinions in pain management and Physiotherapy – Episode 1

This is the first video of a series of 3, talking about pain management and Physiotherapy.

The information of this video has been provided by Lars Avemarie and is part of a guest blog he wrote for Adam Meakins in The Sports Physio Blog. If you want to read the full article, you can find it here.

Here the 5 key points you can find in this video:

  • Pain management is suboptimal when done with a purely biomedical ideology.
  • Structure and biomechanics are not destiny, most findings on imaging are also common in asymptomatic individuals.
  • Most health professionals lack a comprehensive scientific perspective on pain, and are often scientific illiterate.
  • Pain is modulated by emotional, mental, and sensory mechanisms, and our treatments should reflect this.
  • The placebo effect does not justify “magical” pseudo-scientific non-plausible treatments with only dubious evidence.
