Episode 5: Some great questions from our listeners

Welcome to this episode where we delve into the intriguing questions posed by our listeners across the globe, ranging from professionals in the pain field to individuals with firsthand experiences. The overwhelming response reflects a shared curiosity about the complexities of pain.

In response to Jerry's query, which stems from the challenge of introducing pain education to chronic pain patients resistant to the idea, Lorimer takes a comprehensive approach. Drawing from his wealth of experience, he provides insightful advice on navigating patients stuck in the belief that their pain can be fixed with a tangible solution, such as a misaligned hip.

Klodeta, expressing gratitude for the impact of Lorimer's book on her pain management journey, raises a pertinent concern about the potential permanence of post-surgery pain. Lorimer sheds light on the intricate interplay between physical sensations and the brain's interpretation, exploring the possibility of the brain influencing pain perception even after the source has been addressed surgically.

Lastly, Christine raises a thought-provoking question about the basis for claims in pain education, highlighting the absence of Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs) supporting its efficacy over empathetic support alone. Lorimer delves into the ethical considerations, addressing concerns about potentially gaslighting patients by attributing their suffering solely to their thoughts.

Join us as Lorimer unpacks these questions with depth and nuance, providing valuable insights into the multifaceted realm of pain and its management.
