Pain is multidimensional, and so should management be, that is what we are grappling with and it is not at all easy at present, but it will be before long. Important changes take time to integrate and get right. Things are changing for the better and the physiotherapy profession in this country stands to gain a great deal of respect for the way in which it is taking on this material. Patients and society should also benefit, and as Gordon Waddell (1998) powerfully points out, if medicine can create a low back pain disability epidemic, then it can also reverse it.”

Louis Gifford

Louis Gifford was a clinician for over 30 years, and a lecturer and writer about pain and physiotherapy. From the early 1990’s through to 2007 he spent a great deal of time lecturing about pain biology, pain management and treatment. In the late 1990’s and early 2000’s there was a massive pain science revolution in physiotherapy, that Louis was very much involved in. His book series on pain science called Aches and Pains, are highly recommend, and so are all his articles, and scientific papers. He was also the editor of the “Topical Issues in Pain” (1-5) series, that marked a milestone for the understanding of pain and physiotherapy.
