  • Moving better with less pain

    07/04/2020 Duration: 56min

    Seeking treatment at the start can seem frustrating - maybe the exercises aren’t working, maybe the hands-on manipulation is causing *more* pain, and you’re thinking “this is supposed to make me feel better why is it not working?!” The goal of physical therapy is not only about instant relief, but about rediscovering how your movement allows you to move better and with less pain. The goal of any therapy is to get your life back and allow you to do the things you love without worrying about your pain alarms ringing. Neil Pearson joins me on In Your Pants, a physiotherapist and Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of British Columbia, and in this episode we bust misunderstandings about the conception of pain versus the lived experience. Check out the show notes on my website: for a worksheet on pain that you can do at home!

  • Activating your parasympathetic nervous system

    10/03/2020 Duration: 39min

      Yoga postures give you more than a stretch or workout: you’re actively changing your neurological platforms (aka how you experience the world) while moving your body. On today’s episode with Marlysa Sullivan, we’re sharing how yoga impacts the parasympathetic nervous system and how you can activate it at home. Everyone experiences the same benefits on the mat (which are starting to be noticed by the scientific community too!), and everyone who starts to practice yoga chooses to continue to roll out their mat because it makes them feel good physically, emotionally, and mentally. We'll also chat about polyvagal theory and what is its significance for physical, mental, behavioral health and physical therapy!

Through this experience, I learned a lot about myself and deepened my connection with universal love and compassion. So on today’s show, Shelly and I talk about yoga, how you can apply yoga practice and philosophy both on the mat and in your everyday life to cultivate peace in your mind and compassion in your heart as you navigate the world of pain.

  • Social support for men with pelvic pain

    03/12/2019 Duration: 34min

    Social support is crucial for well-being and solution-oriented problem-solving. Men don’t tend to have outlets to feel heard and understood, or a safe space to be vulnerable. Sociocultural taboos and stigmatization are major barriers to men seeking and receiving support, especially when it comes to their most prized parts. On today’s show, I’ve invited psychologist and sex therapist, Dr. Teresa Johnson, to chat about the barriers and challenges that men face with sexual health issues, intimacy, and pelvic pain. We dive into the importance of social support and connection when facing these challenges. We also have some exciting news to share with you, so be sure to listen to the entire show.
