Understanding Pain & Injury with Dr. Rachel Zoffness (Part 1)The Run Smarter Podcast
Today we have pain psychologist Dr. Rachel Zoffness on the show to teach us about pain & injury. Rachel teaches pain education to medical residents, serves on the pain education faculty at Dartmouth and is the co-president of the American Association of Pain Psychology.
She is also the author of The Pain Management Workbook, an integrative, evidence-based treatment protocol for adults living with chronic pain.
In part 1 of this 2-parter, we dive into the science of pain both acute & chronic. We break down real-world examples of how a biopsychosocial brain interprets pain and what turns up & dampens pain signals.
