Default Nothing has changed...

In our local paper today there was a two page report on our pain clinic at the hospital and its programs.

Nothing has changed over the years since I left. The emphasis remains on motor control, graded exercises (with theraband!!!) core strengthening and bouncy balls. No mention of pain education, a passing reference to neuroplasticity and lots of photos in The Gym.

The patient in focus reported she can now walk for 15 minutes before pain becomes intolerable; she has been there since NOVEMBER 2010. The waiting list is 18 months, due to staff shortages, and if they hang on to their patients for 9 months or longer - no wonder.

Can anyone tell that I am very cranky that people like Moseley and Butler are still being ignored??

Sorry for the rant..
