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!

Greg is such an incredible mind. You just need to listen a couple of minutes to realize this guy may be some sort prodigy. I would be happy to have half his memory, half his insight, half his clinical reasoning! Adams Meakins changed the direction of my career as a physical therapist. Adam is the modern Louis Gifford. Thank you for this PodCast!

Fun & informative

A nice critical podcast of all things physical/physio therapy. Knowledgeable, skeptical, and profane. If you like manual therapy, you'll find this podcast interesting.

Podcast cover
Read more

In the first NAF of 2018 Adam and Erik are joined by special guest Nick Tumminello to discuss the application of science in training and physiotherapy.

Rank #9: 017_Talking_Placebo_and_Experience

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode Erik gets confused but we eventually discuss the placebo effect and how it effects everything we do with patients. But the question is do we need to be focusing on it so much and using our time and resources to investigate it?

We then discuss the contentious issue of experience. Do you as a clinician need to have had personal experience of the things you ask your patients to do to be effective and credible?

As always hold tight… this could get a little bumpy!

In this podcast Adam and Erik discuss what the future may hold for our profession and if physios can be trusted with truly autonomous first contact practice.
