In this episode, Dr. David Hanscom continues his discussion with Stephanie Carter Kelley – an orthopedic physical therapist. She explains her approach to treating patients with chronic pain and emphasizes the need for a more holistic and empathetic approach to addressing chronic pain. She talks about the benefits of a multi-dimensional approach to treatment incorporating yoga, breathing techniques, mediation, and training patients to understand the triggers associated with their pain, in addition to physical therapy. She discusses her “PEACE” approach to chronic pain: Practice, Education, Aligning with your values, Creating new habits and Empowerment. She stresses the importance of taking the time to build a therapeutic relationship with her patients.

After 30 years of practicing orthopedic physical therapy combined with 20 years of teaching in physical therapy, publishing research, and leading quality improvement efforts, Dr. Stephanie left the security of the academic medical institution to start an integrative practice blending yoga with physical therapy.  She sees clients one-on-one, teaches group classes, and provides online programs using yoga as the primary intervention for healing chronic musculoskeletal pain. As a person who has also suffered with her own chronic pain, she now considers herself a teacher, guide and coach on a mission to empower other mature women with chronic low back pain to not be held back and to consistently and confidently engage in an active lifestyle.
