What’s wrong with the Ghost in the Machine?
Last year, Paul and Matthew released a paper in The Journal of Bodywork & Movement Therapies entitled “The Ghost in the Machine – Is Musculoskeletal Medicine Lacking Soul?”
The paper argued that the concept of “central sensitization” (at its most basic, a lowering of pain threshold) needed to be expanded to incorporate lifestyle factors, mental-emotional factors, and indeed spiritual factors in order to truly understand and overcome musculoskeletal pain.
Well, that paper set off a bit of a controversy in the health profession and now the field is beginning to reply to Paul & Matthew.
In this webinar, Paul and Matthew will recap the central points of “The Ghost in the Machine”, lay out the main criticisms of their paper, and reply to those criticism.
