656. Resolve Your Pain with Physical Therapist Rick Olderman

May 5, 2023


Physical therapist Rick Olderman is back on the podcast to talk with Lara about his new book Solving the Pain Puzzle and share with listeners his systems approach to pain management. Listen in for tips about how to solve your pain by looking at your body in a holistic way. 


Rick is a sports and orthopedic physical therapist with more than 25 years experience that specializes in helping people with chronic pain experience a pain-free life. He has written the popular Fixing You® series of books to help people with chronic pain or injuries. Rick has created downloadable video home programs to help people solve pain from head to toe. Rick’s latest book is a compilation of case studies where he demonstrates his approach of holistic, but evidence-based, treatment to help people get out of pain. 


In this episode, you’ll learn about:

  • the limitations of a component-based approach in medical research and treatment, particularly in the case of chronic pain.
  • why a systems approach, which takes into account the interconnectedness of different parts of the body and factors that contribute to pain, is necessary to effectively address chronic pain.
  • common mistakes people make with their posture and how to fix them.
