In the first ever episode of the Pain Science and Sensibility Podcast Sandy and Cory explore a recent research article on self-efficacy and fear of movement and how they mediate changes in pain and/or disability in chronic back pain populations. They discuss how these findings apply to the clinic and Cory tries to convince Sandy to open a pizza place in her clinic.

Self-efficacy is more important than fear of movement in mediating the relationship between pain and disability in chronic low back pain.
