Episode 22: Nerding Out About Pain & Humor with Tawny Kross

Today is a special episode of the UCP podcast because we have our first ever guest!!!  Welcome to Dr. Tawny Kross.

Today we discuss all things nerdy, especially pain science.  We also go into why humor is such a crucial (and fun!) thing to bring in during your healing journey.

Dr. Tawny Kross graduated with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Duke University in 2013. She has worked in a Veterans Affairs hospital for nearly a decade now. Through the course of her practice, she has developed a very comprehensive and integrative approach to PT, which evolved from the necessity of such an approach in her work with the complexities of those who have chronic pain. This includes nutrition, hypnosis, guided imagery, mindfulness among other practices. Focusing on mental health and being trauma-sensitive is of particular importance, as many of her clients have experienced military sexual trauma. She helps her clients move beyond pain and fear by connecting them with internal motivations, guiding them to see innate strengths and realize their inner healing abilities. She recently started her own business, Kross Centered Care – Integrative PT, Health and Wellness in order to bring her expertise to more people. Visit her on Instagram.

Episode 15: ‘Good’ Advice Is Never The Whole Story

Soundbites are EVERYWHERE.

And they aren’t necessarily wrong – they are often discussing an outcome though, and jump past the work it can take to achieve that outcome.⁠ ⁠So we read these, and then beat ourselves up for not having already achieved them!⁠ ⁠Nuance is KEY.

In this episode, I discuss this pervasive issue, and then talk about 3 common “sound bites” I hear that when interpreted in certain ways become more harmful than helpful.⁠ ⁠One of them is “no pain, no gain” – my take on it might surprise you!⁠

 Listen in to hear the rest!⁠

Episode 10: Redefining Trauma

All too often, trauma is dismissed because it ‘wasn’t that bad’ or it ‘doesn’t count’, but underneath all of this, there is a very real physiological reaction that is occurring that is leading to nervous system sensitization and therefore, chronic pain.

In this episode, I offer a different take on trauma, and why the word ‘trauma’ is problematic in the first place – and offer an alternative way to look at it.

Whether or not you think you have trauma, if you have chronic pain, you MUST listen in to this episode.

I’ll let you in on what doesn’t work in addressing, this…and of course…how you can actually heal this and decrease your nervous system sensitivity in the process.
