Today's episode is for you to self-reflect on your past thoughts, beliefs, fears & anxieties when injured and how it can hinder your recovery.
We discuss the components of:
Catastrophizing- 'To view or present a situation as considerably worse than it actually is'.
Kinesiophobia- 'An excessive, irrational, and debilitating fear of physical movement and activity'.
Brodie discusses 3 recent papers on this topic to bring more awareness to the situation:
Paper 1: Changes in catastrophizing and kinesiophobia are predictive of changes in disability and pain after treatment in patients with anterior knee pain.
Paper 2: Pain and disability in women with patellofemoral pain relate to kinesiophobia, but not to patellofemoral joint loading variables.
Paper 3: Adding mindfulness practice to exercise therapy for femalerecreational runners with patellofemoral pain: A randomized controlled trial.
