Today's Quick Links come from Specialist Pain Physio, Charlie Weingroff, and MyRehabExercise.com
Richmond Stace, The Specialist Pain Physio, wants to know your story. That is, if you're a patient coming to see him for chronic pain. He goes over the details of why this is important, especially the part about when exactly you decided to finally try physiotherapy. It's a great read and may change your history taking or shed new light on your patients.
My pal Dr. Charlie Weingroff gives some random thoughts. He covers everything from Pain Science, to diet, the WTF effect and more. Great read as always from a amazing strength coach, who just happens to be a PT.
Dr. Philip Snell, of MyRehabExercise.com and always rocking the hipster 'stache, wrote a great blog post about whether or not herniating discs resorb. It's a great piece to refer to for patients who are stuck in the sea of pathoanatomy and focused on the thought viruses contracted from seeing their specialists. Yes, we all know that those discs can absolutely be symptomatic, but periphery does matter in some cases, and sometimes education and our best efforts are not enough.
