Articles Of The Week March 17, 2019

I would say as a profession, we are a compassionate group. However, it turns out compassion can be trained in your brain and can be enhanced with training and practice.

This is a REALLY good article to share with your patients who are dealing with pain. All too often they are referred for imaging, which only increases pain when patients see the result. However, if we changed things and patients were educated about their pain properly, we would probably have better outcomes.

“Do You Know The Risks And Rewards Of Pain Treatments?” – Kal Fried

“The Enemies Within” – Benjamin Stevens
