In episode 6.2, Christy Natale and I return for some Q&A. We explore her relationship to her back pain & some of the psychological components of her pain as well as those that helped her move beyond the pain. Listen to how the voice of the clinician and voice of the patient weave into one with her descriptions.
In episode 6.1, Christy Natale, a PT and patient, explains her struggles with back pain. the truly fascinating aspect of this interview for me was to see the interplay between the clinician and patient in the same person.
You'll want to listen again next week when she and I explore that interplay and go in greater depth behind the voice of the patient.
In the fifth episode of The Voice of the Patient podcast, Jerry Durham joins the show as a guest.

Great conversation, great resources offered to step up your game as a caregiver.
