1. Redefining Pain Management: A Holistic Journey with Gregory Stern from 'From the Ground Up Physiotherapy' Jennifer George 34:49

In this episode of the “Healthcare Provider Happy Hour,”  Gregory Stern and I address the often-overlooked challenges faced by healthcare workers dealing with chronic pain. Gregory Stern, owner of From the Ground Up Physiotherapy Clinic in Montreal, emphasizes the critical role of emotional investment in treatment outcomes and the quick wins achievable by adjusting mindsets and movement patterns. He further explores the role of sleep, nutrition, and lifestyle in managing pain and the significance of foot health as a cornerstone of overall well-being. 

Discover the value of rethinking posture, embracing the ‘Asian squat’, and mastering breathing techniques to foster healing. Greg’s insights offer not only hope but practical strategies for those yearning to move freely and live fully, without pain dictating their every move.

Jennifer George Author, Physiotherapist, Podcast Host

At the onset of my career as a Physiotherapist (PT) in 2007, I also became a caregiver to my chronically ill father. Throughout my career and caregiving, I saw both sides of the healthcare system – as a clinician and as a family member & caregiver – and I witnessed the gaps in communication between providers and patients. Walking into a medical appointment with my dad was always a psychological experience and quite often, his healing and our outlook was mainly impacted by the quality of the interactions.

When my dad died in 2018, I was inspired to write my first book, Communication is Care: 9 Empowering Strategies to Guide Patient Healing, published in June 2019. I wrote this book with the intention to help healthcare providers enhance their communication skills and be able to communicate with patients in such a way that it would help their patients achieve their highest level of function, recovery, and independence. My book has received a few awards and was an Amazon Bestseller upon its launch.

In October 2019, I further launched my podcast, The Healthcare Provider Happy Hour. The purpose of my podcast is to support the well-being of healthcare providers so that they may create the best patient experiences and minimize their risk of burnout. I’ve released over 200 episodes to date and have had the opportunity to chat with like-minded people on a similar mission over the past three years from all over the globe.”
