Adam Meakins on The Physio Detective Podcast

Adam Meakins is a high profile UK physiotherapist on social media. He is known as The Sports Physio and is fairly controversial in his approach to spreading his messages. Adam certainly has his supporters and detractors...just have a look at any social media he has done over the past few years and you will see he doesn't resile from his comments...you might even find me in there having a bit of argy bargy with him. But the reality is that people online are still people - obvious huh? It is much easier to paint Adam Meakins as a hopeless manual therapist who is too simplistic in his approach and is uncaring. His blunt presentation of his opinions often puts people off. So I decided it might be better to find out a bit more about the man behind the social media persona. Adam was in Brisbane to teach his course "The Shoulder: Complex doesn't have to be complicated". I found it to be a very reasonable and useful way to assess, treat and manage the shoulder. It is certainly evidence-based and logical and the course was also practical. Anyway, here is the recording we did...let me know what you thought of it!

Hip Mobility / Flexibility / Stability Drills – The Theory

So the upcoming 10 exercises will publish over the next 2 weeks are to help improve how your hips move. These are some of the most commonly prescribed exercises I prescribe. This post is about explaining why I give these exercises and the principles behind the process. You can take these principles and apply them to the many different exercises you do. This list of 10 are not exhaustive nor even the BEST because for some of you, these exercises won't do much...but many of you, it will make a difference. My post yesterday explained a bit about them...this has a lot more information... ***COMPETITION INFORMATION BELOW***            

Stressed? This is the easiest relaxation technique you will ever do

I have used this technique for nearly a decade now...I recently did it in Chicago for someone while having dinner with Sandy Hilton (from Entropy Physio in Chicago) and she mentioned that she wished she had recorded it...so I did it today with Gemma O'Brien from CrossFit Rush Hour in Sydney's West. It is really simply and you just have to listen to the words and instructions and get the idea for yourself - watch how Gemma nearly falls over a few times during this process because her legs become so relaxed!

Core Stability Podcast with Brad Sheppard from CPTW

Last week, I had the privilege of having a chat with Brad Sheppard from Create PT Wealth, a business coaching group based in Australia. Brad wanted my opinion on "The Core" and some quality information for his coaching clients but Create PT Wealth have decided to release it as open to the public. During the discussion, we covered some of the following topics: What exactly is the "Core" Why are those muscles different to others? How you can apply these principles to your clients and get instant results. Thank you Brad and Jason from Create PT Wealth for hosting me on their show!

"Bulletproof" Your "Core" – Sydney – Feb 21-22, 2015

Apologies for this late organization - I had 1.5 weeks of medical issues to deal with. So, here it is!! There are limited places so please click here to BOOK NOW! It will be held at CrossFit Creature in Marrickville - 1030-1730hrs Sat and Sun 21-22, 2015 I will be providing a 2 day course on "The Core" - I hope to be able to take what we know from research, what we know from practical experience and explain how to retrain each component of "The Core" so you can provide yourself and your clients the strongest base from which you can build strength, power and speed. I will also be teaching a staged retraining model so you can help clients who have back pain all the way through to high level athletes. The total cost of this course is usually $660 but for this one time only in Sydney, I am offering it at $50. I don't want cost to be an issue and I want this information to be able to get out there. We will be filming and photographing extensively during the course. Over 2 days, we will cover the following: 1. Theory - Know what the research says 2. Myths - Find out if what you believe is actually true 3. Practice - Learn how to isolate, co-contract and integrate the "Core" into your every day training 4. Rehab - Be equipped to help others train their "Core" properly as well and develop better relationships with other health professionals... Read More
