Dr. Michael Curtis is a physical therapist from California. He publishes new blog posts on his website, michaelcurtispt.com, each week. You can follow him on Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, and Twitter.
This e-book itself, ‘Turn Down Your Pain’ is 24 pages long. It took me about 20 minutes to read. It’s written in everyday language while taking the time to explain potentially more foreign concepts such as neuro-tags.
It’s also FREE.
These are three excerpts that I enjoyed most. Highlights, below, are mine.
Explanation of perceived threat, neuro-tags, and how other factors affect the experience of pain.
Warning about passive coping styles and how movement being the key to recovery
The Idea of Graded Exposure/Activity
Michael then goes on to describe a step-by-step example of graded activity/exposure with bending and lifting.
These are just three small excerpts from this 24-page e-book that is packed with a ton of great information, with references included, to help your patients return to pain-free living.
And it’s free.
