Ep70 'Back Pain: Case Study Special' with Rob Beaven and Dave Elliott

In Ep.70 of the Sports Therapy Association Podcast, we welcome special guests Rob Beaven & Dave Elliott - hosts of The Back Pain Podcast, who share with us three of their own case histories involving clients with back pain, selected due to the fact that they each played a big part in their personal learning experience. Together, these case histories provide fantastic real life examples of how we can learn from the oversights & mistakes we as therapists typically make in the early days of our career, and how important self reflection is in helping us evolve and get better at what we do.

Rob was a guest back in Ep56 of the Sports Therapy Association Podcast in June, in which he discussed common myths relating to lower back pain, and it was a pleasure to have him back with fellow host of The Back pain Podcast Dave Elliott. Be sure to check out all episodes of their excellent podcast, available on all popular players and on their website.

Case Studies discussed focus on:

  • Cauda Equina: the importance of screening 
  • Safety-netting: advising a patient that their condition could worsen
  • Trusting your judgement: not automatically giving the patient what they want

Ep66 'Understanding The Fear Avoidance Model' with special guest Jamie Johnston

Fear can help individuals in pain protect themselves from further harm as it prompts defensive behaviour. However, continued fear can lead to the avoidance of activities that people associate with their pain, often leading to distress, disability, absenteeism, and increased healthcare costs down the line. This is referred to as the Fear Avoidance Model.

In Ep.66 of the Sports Therapy Association Podcast, we welcome back special guest Jamie Johnston, Registered Massage Therapist in Canada and creator of 'The Massage Therapist Development Centre' (www.themtdc.com).

Together with his partner in crime Eric Purves, Jamie is also the creator an host of podcast The Massage Therapist Development Initiative, a highly recommended source of free CPD with some awesome guests (especially the 'all things running' guy in Episode 6)!
