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!

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. Could physios really become the gate keepers for all musculoskeletal conditions or will they continue to be distracted by the constant stupid ideas around how we should assess and treat, and be cast aside onto the fringes of healthcare with the other quacks... and is Adam really Batman?

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 episode Adam and Erik discuss why some find it hard to separate their feelings and emotions from things such as manual therapy and exercise, and also about injury prevention programs and what role internal moments have.

Erik also tries his hardest to put Adam off by wearing some interesting swim wear!!!
