Discs don’t “hurt”

Explain Pain Book CoverJust heard an amazing lecture by Dr. Lorimer Moseley at the APTA Combined Sections Meeting in San Diego.  “Explain Pain” is a book written by Dr. Moseley and Dr. David Butler (Mobilization of the Nervous System) for chronic pain patients that explains the concept of pain as a perception in our brains.  They also call spinal discs “living active force transducers” to help people get away from the concept of a “slipped disc” that doesn’t happen!  Very interesting work!
