Received a lovely, heartfelt message today from someone living with pain who found my blog by typing in the search box: ‘the back pain is so much a part of me that i am afraid of living without it’. The lived experience of pain is complex, nuanced, difficult to put into words. 1/

"If we can appreciate that pain is a protective device, not a measure of tissue damage, if we can communicate that to people, then we change the game," Professor Moseley said.

Expectation of recovery & not imaging findings prognostic of recovery from low back related leg pain. And myotomal weakness was positively linked to recovery!

Thanks Derek! So important to... "Exploration and appropriate handling of patient's expectations about their pain trajectory, both in referred leg pain and in sciatica cases, is considered relevant, similarly to most health problems presentations."

Barriers to change : fixed mindset (pain = damage), social stress, contradictory health messages, low self-efficacy, pain-related fear, poorly managed comorbid mental health.....sure i see people like this. CFT is no miracle - its about putting people in control of their health.

Despite claims that passive therapy helps build therapeutic alliance, when we look at what patients themselves say they never mention it! Instead validation and asking people about other aspects of their lives appear to be what matters.

We don’t run RCTs for MT for MSK pain for a reason.....we run trials to change people’s mindset, build their confidence to trust their bodies to do the stuff they love and engage in healthy lifestyle behaviours.

I trained as a MT and spent years learning to crack, pull and push - with lots of crazy beliefs attached. Now looking at my tool box for managing people with MSK pain I see MT as a limited tool. In people who are disabled and have low self-efficacy I actively try not to use it.
