Ep. 060 | Pain and Disability Drivers Management (PDDM) Model | Yannick Tousignant-Laflamme

Physiotutors Podcast

06-01-2024 • 54 mins

In this Physiotutors podcast episode, Canadian researcher Yannick Tousignant-Laflamme introduces the Pain and Disability Drivers Management Model, a groundbreaking approach to understanding and managing chronic musculoskeletal pain, particularly low back pain. This model identifies five key domains across three dimensions, going beyond biomechanics to reveal the root causes of pain and disability. It underscores the significance of interdisciplinary collaboration and effective communication among healthcare professionals.

By integrating classification systems and prognostic tools, this model optimizes its effectiveness. Classification systems pinpoint patient subgroups, while prognostic tools screen for psychological factors affecting pain outcomes. Clinicians are encouraged to utilize these tools for screening, delving deeper for medium or high-risk patients. The incorporation of questionnaires and patient-reported outcome measures informs evidence-based decision-making. The ultimate aim? Personalized, evidence-based care for musculoskeletal conditions, addressing both physical and psychosocial factors.

Curious to learn more about this innovative approach? Tune in to the full episode for a comprehensive exploration.
