NAF Physio Podcast

Hosted by Adam Meakins (aka The Sports Physio), 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!

The PT Podcast Network crew are here to spread some holiday cheer with the annual PT Podcast Network Extravaganza! They talk Jedis, rectums, Festivus, and horrible jet lag - all the holiday standards. Some say it's unlistenable...but you get to judge for yourself!

In this episode Adam talks with the hosts of the Physio Natters podcast Jack March and Rob Tyre about their recent podcast on adjuncts in physiotherapy.

Adam gets on his high horse and holds Jack and Rob to account for some of their thoughts and opinions on adjuncts and has a good old rant about them. Watch out for some strong opinions, accents and of course language.

Also if you are emotionally or financially attached to your acupuncture needles, coloured tape, massage cream or quartz crystals you may wish to move along quietly; you will find only anger here.

In this our first anniversary episode of the NAF we talk with Chris and Filip around the notorious, infamous and debatable subject of Scapula Dyskinesia. Is it cause or effect, is it defense or defect, do we need to consider it or disregard it?

We get to hear Chris and Filip's thoughts about if we can and should assess scapulae for dyskinesia and if specific or general shoulder exercises matter. We also learn that Filip is a master with metaphors.

In this month's podcast Adam talks with Dr Tim Gabbett about injury prevention in sports. He discusses Dr Gabbett’s recent paper in the British Journal of Sports Medicine on the Acute to Chronic ratio for load as a guide to reduce the risk of preventable injury.

Adam and Tim discuss the role and importance of monitoring load and how best this can be achieved in both professional, amateur, and individual sports.

Dr Gabbett’s recent paper can be found as free access here:

Happy New Year. We start 2016 on the NAF with a bang, talking with the well-known physio/chiro/researcher/sceptic Greg Lehman.

In this episode we finally find out which side of the physio/chiropractic fence Greg sits on, and who he thinks would win a fight between a physio and a chiro. We also find out that he can’t hold his beer and that he has some unusual bedroom companions… Canadians eh!!!

We do talk about some sensible stuff eventually such as the role of posture and pain, stretching effects on tendon and muscle tissue, and how education and biomechanics fit in with pain science. Enjoy!
