Welcome back to another episode of The Communicate & Connect Podcast! I’m your host, Elizabeth Polinsky, and today we have a very special episode for you.
Joining us are the dynamic duo of Drs. Dustin and Kerry Brockberg, experts in the field of chronic pain. In this episode, we dive deep into the topic of chronic pain in relationships.
We often think of pain as purely physical, but it goes beyond that. The “acute pain mindset” that we’re all familiar with doesn’t apply to chronic pain, which requires ongoing interventions. In this epsiode, we expand our definition of pain to include not just physical pain, but also emotional and social pain.
Drs. Brockberg bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to this conversation as we explore the unique challenges that military service members and veterans face when it comes to chronic pain and reintegrating into society. We also delve into strategies for chronic pain management, ranging from relaxation techniques to cognitive behavioral therapy. Towards the end of the episode, we discuss the critical role of support systems and acceptance in managing chronic pain.
So, if you’re ready to deepen your understanding of chronic pain in relationships, join us in this episode of The Communicate & Connect Podcast with Drs. Dustin and Kerry Brockberg. It’s time to challenge our perceptions and explore new ways of supporting veterans and service members who experience chronic pain. Let’s dive in!
