Have you ever heard someone use the expression “it’s all in your head” and find yourself wanting to punch them in the face?


Yea, us too. 


In this episode, Dr. Sean talks to Active Life 1 on 1 coach, Dr. Todd Dersham about a particular client he had who was in her own way in regards to her mindset around pain. 


They discuss how mindset can increase pain or decrease pain and how it plays a role in the recovery cycle. 


Hint, it’s not in your head, but your head could be in the way of your body.
