MPE Mentoring Session 2 - Nov 2020

In the second session of Modern Patient Education, Nov 2020, Andrew and the Modern Rehab Mastery cohort go over

  • Words that harm, words that heal
  • Trying to refrain from saying words like “weaker” or “degenerative,” or “bad” side
  • Understanding what “normal” findings are with radiology on asymptomatic people
  • How to have a difficult conversation with a patient after they’ve seen another healthcare practitioner and have a certain belief system or perception of their situation that is not helpful to their progress
  • Useful resources to help explain pain to patients (Greg Lehman workbook, youtube videos, podcasts, etc)
  • “Slow drip” of challenging information during other interventions like manual therapy vs having a formal “pain conversation”
