Pain science has come a long way in the past couple decades. Our new understanding of pain has changed our profession dramatically since I started practicing back in 2002. Unfortunately, very few people (including some of my fellow physical therapists) actually truely understand what pain is and how we can affect it.
This is one of my favorite videos I have found on YouTube. Its only 5 minutes and you will walk away with more knowledge about pain than the majority of your peers.
