Today I'm speaking with the man behind the newest online course Central Sensitization - Jo Nijs - member of the famed Pain In Motion research group. We talk about central sensitization - the pillars behind the approach that the PIM group utilise, wider aspects of research and environmental aspects that can influence the pain response and recovery such as diet and sleep and how you can take that directly into practise along side your graded exercise/exposure program as well as tackling patient beliefs.

Episode 034: Orthopaedic surgery 101
1:04:56In this episode we talk about what it is your orthopaedic surgeon would consider (and what Dr. Jorge Chahla *heavily* emphasised - in consultation with the patient) in the decision making process as to whether or not surgery was a suitable option, or if something such as biologics would be a better option. We touch on the decision making process in elite sports where Dr Chahla works with the Chicago Bulls, White Sox & Fire FC where time constraints may cause one to choose a different decision making process. On top of that we talk about what orthopaedic surgeons look for in the physiotherapists they work with and what factors go into a successful rehabilitation!

Whilst we do discuss Covid 19 patients and I myself have seen a few covid recovered patients - both myself and Pat want to make note that this was recorded early in 2021 whilst not a lot of information was available for post-covid rehabilitation however we hope that you still have some take away moments from that aspect of the podcast!
