Down here in the southern hemisphere the winter solstice has passed and we are all pretty excited about the daylight hours slowly getting longer. To celebrate this (almost) halfway point to the year, we’d like to recap the top 5 Noijam posts of 2016 so far.
Exploring John Barbis’ recent hip replacement – an interview with Dave Butler. His personal reflection on the preparation, the surgery and the rehab process.
A nifty little neuroscience nugget to use in the clinic from our friend Wouter Ramboer – powering up the concept of active graded exposure activity using the metaphor of worn out trainers and shoe glue.
The Launch of The Protectometer App – merging pain education that you can touch, manipulate and personalise, with Challenges that encourage behavioural activation, contextual graded activity and deep exploration of thoughts and beliefs. The competition is almost finished but there’s still time to add a Challenge to win the App!
Untangling the scary, metaphorical diagnosis of frozen shoulder while reflecting on some recent reviews looking at links with metabolic syndromes, low grade inflammation and psychological stress.
Our March Noinote was a big hit! An introduction to Thought Viruses, “things that we hear, think or say that are scary and threatening – they are nearly always incorrect, but can be powerful enough to maintain or even increase your pain.” There’s even a clever little video to unpack the idea for you.
