Most human commerce involves a contractual nature of agreement to solve a problem. A problem can be an actual object, or it can be an objectification of a situation. Hairdressers cut hair. Dentists work on teeth. Lawyers argue cases. Some actual object (or objectification of a sub-jective situation) is involved. From this thinking, many therapists/trainers/coaches become "operators" and those in front of them become something that is operated on. Moreover, this model does not seek to actively involved the patient/client/athlete on a deeper level. 


Today, our guests are physical therapists, Diane Jacobs and Jason Silvernail who will discuss the "Interactor" model of therapy. This interactive model between both parties, is scientifically congruent with the emerging explanatory model of the multifactorial, biopsychosocial pain experience, the neuromatrix.
