A First Person Perspective on Neuroscience and Pain
Thanks to @snippetphysther for providing this link on twitter!
Drs. Thacker and Moseley propose a new way of looking at pain, using a first person perspective and taking into account all the patient's experiences and feelings. They also refreshingly state pain is emergent from many systems. They are even suggesting giving up educating patients on "all pain is in the brain" saying. Kudos to that, as I was getting tired of hearing it. Most patients were not buying it either, making the pain science/education approach very difficult to implement. How often do we really actively listen to the patient, other than just writing down what makes them better, worse, and what they can and cannot do?
