  • another handout: cause of pain

    Here is another one for your perusal. This one is to answer the question "What caused my pain?" using an analogy of a moody friend. Let me know what you think.

    Cory,

    This looks good. Now I can tell all my students to come here for handouts. They're often needy in this way and I tend not to satisfy that need.

    Always a good idea to stick a Wizard of Oz reference in there. Everyone will be drawn to it and it might even enhance their understanding.

      Barrett,

      Could you give a bit more to search on for an Oz reference. I looked through the old threads and, having not read the book (only watched the movie) I don't seem to be able to come up with something on my own.

      In the meantime, I updated what I'd done already. I hope it's an improvement.

        Cory,

        "Next," not "nest" in the final sentence.

        I'll sleep on the Wizard of Oz thing.

        This is going well.

          Cory, nice going. I think the idea you try to convey with: "low back pain is often caused by something as simple...", may come accross more accurately if you say: "low back pain often starts with something as simple...."

            Doing well there, Cory!

            You said oh my at the end...explaining the next bit will be tricky to overcome the deeply embedded beliefs that it is torn muscle, overstretched ligament or prolapsed disc or all three causing pain.

            I look forward to the next section.

              I'm not sure if this helps, but here's something I did a few years back when I got tired of trying to answer people's questions about the various mesodermal abnormalities that were unrelated to their pain.
              I hope you find something you can use...

                  Thanks all of you for sharing.
                  I had my first pain lecture today at the Uni...(and yeah I gave that in English,quite an accomplishment for me). It was a 3 hour lecture, which I first thought was way too long, but eventually ended not finishing everything I wanted to teach. Oh and sorry I used you all as references! There are not many people out there really so passionate about pain, and how to see and treat it with consideration to the one feeling it. Perhaps I contributed today with the knowledge I gained ...mostly here from all the discussions...to the understanding of a few young therapists.

                    Wow, way to go Mariette. This is how it starts, a trickle here, a trickle there, then a stream, and maybe some day a river.

                      Nari,
                      The "oh my" at the end was a wizard of oz reference. Now I'm putting 2 and 2 together. Barrett, were you commenting on that?

                      Bas,
                      I agree. Good point.

                      Jason,
                      As always, great work. Thanks for sharing.

                      Mariette,
                      Way to go! I'd be interested to hear more about your experience.

                          An update:

                          I've committed myself to using my business to do some outreach for bringing this information to my community. I submitted this handout to a local newspaper for the senior community in my area and they are going to publish it.

                          I offered to make it a monthly series as well, so we'll see.

                          Jason, I hand your "water the grass" paper out quite a bit. In fact I'll be handing it out to a fibromyalgia support group tonight. It would be a logical topic in the series down the line a bit. If it does in fact turn into a series for the paper, could I submit it? Of course I'd make sure to give you full credit.

                              I checked out the date on the thread.

                              Does Cause's Confusion affect it at all?
