I came across this article on JAMA and occasionally like to throw in a pain science article and go off on my little rant so here goes…⠀⠀

PHYSICAL therapists! Can we please not abandon all objective findings because of a pain course you took last weekend? ⠀

Pain science courses! Can we please stop disregarding the importance of specific loading programs to address subtle differences in coordination and strength?⠀
“Just move” is not the whole answer. The new amazing emphasis on brain plasticity is not meant to blunt our education and experience it’s meant to add to it so that we can form a more robust program that is inclusive of this new information.⠀
Rant over… ????⠀
