There are studies that show that a hip focused exercise program helps for PFP; there are others that show that a knee focused exercise program also works. Is one better than the other? What about just doing ANY kind of exercise? This study takes a look at answering those questions...kind of.

Rank #6: 129 Pain Neuroscience and Exercise for Chronic Spine Pain

Podcast cover
Read more

We love us some pain neuroscience and exercise for the treatment of chronic pain as a very plausible approach, but there is not very much research out there that truly tests it. This article compared that approach to a more "old style" approach to physical therapy management of chronic spine pain. The conclusions were promoted as promising, but the findings may not be as impressive as advertised. Special guest Kenny Venere joins us to take an exploration of pain neuroscience as an intervention! (Here you can find Kenny's blog and his Twitter profile)

Effect of Pain Neuroscience Education Combined With Cognition-Targeted Motor Control Training on Chronic Spinal PainA Randomized Clinical Trial. Malfliet A, Kregel J, Coppieters I, et al. JAMA Neurol. Published online April 16, 2018. doi:10.1001/jamaneurol.2018.0492.

Here is the pretrial registration: ClinicalTrials.gov
