We spend some time learning, discussing and generally chatting all things Chiropractic and Chiropractic philosophy. The podcast made by the profession for the profession.
Disease v. dis-ease, clarifying our terms.
39:55In this episode we spend some time with Dr Nick Reynolds going over specific Chiropractic terms. Dis-ease can be a bit of a hot topic, but if we start with a clear understanding of the terms and their meanings, it quickly changes into another conversation. Nick is someone who we have gotten to know pretty well recently as he worked his way through our online philosophy course, so we were buzzing to get him on a podcast to share some things. Nick choose to look deeper at various Chiropractic terms during his time on our philosophy course, and ended up focusing on dis-ease. He final module, the article we chat about, was the result of some incredible discussions and a lot of hard work on his part. When combined with Nicks understanding and quality penmanship this was a piece of Chiropractic writing that couldn’t stay hidden, so we thought we would get him on the podcast to make sure it got out there. We were yet to know, at the time of recording the podcast, that this paper would feature in the recent publication of 33 from the UCA (uk). Which hopefully a few of you have read! But in the podcast we walk through his paper and some of the conversations and thots around it. Nick is a rockstar and as always he brings his incredible energy on this one. What did we go over Studying Chiro in a different way to the norm. Inspirational Chiro that got him there. Disease v. Disease. Why is it important to clarify our terms. Post Chiro college disney! Chasing the greats. Getting out of the bubble. Studying philosophy online. ….and plenty more. *we apologise for the quality of the audio for this one, but we wanted to get it out there*

After a good few attempts we finally got him on the podcast and had a good chin wag about a range of Chiropractic topics.
