Understanding and Managing Chronic Pain with Rick Olderman

Ep. 160
According to the CDC, in 2016, 20.4% of the US population reported experiencing some type of chronic pain. As one of the most common reasons adults seek medical care, chronic pain has been known to have a domino-like effect, leading to other problems such as depression, opioid dependency, and an overall decrease in quality of life. So, if you are part of the 20.4%, what can be done to manage your pain? One great solution is physical therapy. My guest today, Rick Olderman, is a physical therapist, author, trainer, and pilates instructor. He started his career in physical therapy in 1996 and soon realized that the traditional physical therapy approaches that he had learned in school had not prepared him to adequately treat patients with chronic pain. Rick has spent years developing a pioneering approach to physical therapy treatment. In this episode, Rick and I discuss what chronic pain is, what leads to it, and what can be done to alleviate it.Tune in to Episode 160 of REJUVENAGING® and let’s talk pain with Rick Olderman.Some Questions I Ask:Can you give us the Cliff Notes version of what a physical therapist does?
