Description

Hosted by Adam Meakins (aka The Sports Physio), The Not Another F**king (NAF) Physio Podcast promises to be unlike any other! Talking about things that matter, but don't really matter. It will be amateurish, inconsistent, with poor sound quality and even poorer interviews… Be prepared for critical critique, dubious debate, quirky questions and lots of bad language!

In this episode, Adam interrupts Greg’s holiday to talk about pain education after some recent research has shown it may not be as good at helping reduce pain intensity or disability as some claim or think. Greg and Adam also share some of their thoughts on how pain should and should not be explained. Music by Kevin MacLeod - incompetech.com: Intro - Also sprach Zarathustra Close - Vivacity
In this slightly delayed episode due to some unforeseen circumstances Adam and Greg discuss the concept of motor control exercises which are popular in low back pain management and rehab in the belief that they correct faulty issues with specific stabilising muscles. But do they? Do motor control exercises, control motor function, or are they just a giant over complicated waste of time and no better than general exercise? Come join us as we try to find out.

***WARNING: Explicit content*** In this episode Adam and Greg talk about the Acute to Chronic Workload Ratio (ACWR) and its role on injury risk. Does it tell us anything we don’t already know and is it even accurate or reliable? Should you only increase your workload by 10% per week? Should you follow the 80/20 rule? Listen on to find out more…and how Greg almost offended all of Oklahoma.

***WARNING: Explicit content*** In this episode Greg and Adam discuss the Good Living with Arthritis Denmark commonly referred to as the GLAD program. They talk about the benefits but also the issues they see with the GLA:D program and why it may have some limitation in trying to achieve what it wants to achieve in the general population. Greg also discusses his own FREE version of GLAD which he calls OA Optimism but may be re-naming it to LSD soon. Listen on to find out why.

In this episode Adam and Greg discuss some of the issues and concerns they have in practicing ethically as evidence-based physios and earning an income. Adam also discusses the recent ‘outrage’ that occurred after his idea for a Wiki-Leaks database for those who use unethical practices. And then they get onto talking about a recent systematic review that finds resistance exercise has a LARGE effect on pain in older adults.
