Many people, if not most, think of yoga as being useful for developing flexibility or perhaps for rehab, and know that it has ‘some sort of mindfulness’ aspect. This article sets straight some of the misconceptions about yoga as well as describing the Eight Limbs of yoga, the concepts of which can inform a complete way of ‘being’. Combined with an emphasis on how these ideas are relevant to pain, this article will enable you to encourage your patients to manage their pain holistically – both physically and emotionally – as well as being of benefit in your own life. This article has been extracted from the authors’ book Pain Science – Yoga – Life.

Many competitive and professional athletes live with some form of chronic or persistent pain that is not caused by tissue damage. This article will allow you to distinguish between ‘pain’ and ‘injury’ and to treat pain in the athlete in a holistic manner using physical therapy as well as a biopsychosocial approach, a positive unified message across the interdisciplinary team, informed and shared decision-making that empowers the athlete.

These days it is understood that for most chronic pain, ongoing nociceptive triggers are rare. Instead, therapists have to treat a much more complex mix of central sensitisation, anxiety and fear of pain. This involves having a thorough knowledge of pain neuroscience as well as biopsychosocially-driven pain management strategies. This article will allow you to start by understanding your patient before educating them to understand their pain and then to deliver a graded cognition-targeted exercise therapy plan to free your patient from their fear and limitations of chronic pain.

We are all experts in how our own body feels but how does this come about and what happens to this when we're in pain? As a clinician you use specific assessment techniques to understand and validate your patient's pain experience. Are these always appropriate or subtle enough?
This article introduces three bedside tests that explore bodily perception: left/right judgement tasks, two-point discrimination, and localisation of touch. These tests help to identify those patients at risk of their pain persisting and where rehabilitation may be failing. Having a better understanding of what helps construct our body perception and how this can change in pain, helps guide the rehabilitation process. This article includes a certificated elearning assessment, videos and a powerpoint presentation.
Communication about a patient’s pain experience is a fundamental component of rehabilitation, but often requires the use of metaphoric expressions. However, whilst the meaning of some metaphors is clear, for others it can be obscure. This article will allow the reader to understand the influence that metaphors have on rehabilitation and how they can be used for pain reconceptualisation and behavioural change. It will also allow the development of strategies that enable better communication. There is also an audio recording of this article.

Our brains are constantly being remodelled in response to our movement and pain experiences. This article seeks to highlight the neural mechanisms involved in this neuroplastic remodelling, as these processes are vital for therapists to understand. We will look at how we can start to target the cortical representations of the physical parts of the body within our cerebral cortex and the research, science and techniques behind the process.
