Welcome to "Into the Red Zone" a podcast hosted by two accredited exercise physiologists, Ellen Masson & Tait Brow. Tune in to hear us discuss everything rehab to weight management. Join us if you want unfiltered opinions, hard chats with a sprinkle of swearing. Let us take you past green (your comfort zone) and straight into the red zone.
EP20: Stop Pathologising Movement (ft Greg Lehman)
The man, the myth, the legend, Greg Lehman joins the red zone today to talk about all things movement optimization and movement variability.
If you have been confused about neutral spine, good or bad movement, disc durability and it's placed in rehabilitation. This one is for you.
Join us for an optimistic look at the musculoskeletal system. The human body is resilient, available, and durable. It was designed to move and move often in a variety of ways. It's time the medical field started acting like it.
EP19: Fat Acceptance (ft Rachel Roberts)
All of us have some level of Fatphobia, it's time to address it, accept it, and work towards a solution that doesn't exclude individuals in a larger from the conversation.
Rachel Roberts is a fat-positive counselor working at make space counseling. She strives to help her clients learn to trust and accept their bodies.
Join us for a deep dive into the impacts of weight stigma and how fatphobia shows up in the langue we use, the spaces we create, and medicine it's self.
EP18: The Rat Grimace Scale (Ft Matt Jones)
Today we have Matt Jones with us to discuss exercise-induced hypoalgesia. This is just a fancy way of saying pain reduction that results from a single bout of exercise.
Matt is our first academic on the podcast. He is a lecture and researcher at UNSW with a wealth of knowledge to share. Let's welcome him to the RED ZONE!
EP17: We ain't here to put socks on centipedes (ft Jeff Rufila)
Do you label yourself as a person-centered AHP? Are you truly upholding this during your communication with clients and patients?
Jeff Rufila is on this week to talk about motivational interviewing and how it is applied in practice. MI gives you a framework to listen to clients and help guide them to answers rather than trying to play the expert or "fix" them.
Tait and I are finally able to pronounce one of our friend's last names correctly and Jeff puts his own twist on Arabella's last name.
True into this must-listen episode for all your person-centered communication needs.
EP16: Rants & Bants (ft Daniel Arbilla)
How the hell do you pronounce your name Mr Arabella? More into the red zone listeners are asking what is Daniel's last name? To be honest, I don't even know.
Join Ellen, Tait & Dan for our first casual rants and bants episode.
The topic of the day is "do EP's hate manual therapy?". Join us for the most down to earth to a discussion about manual therapy and exercise.
EP15: Ducks & Buckets (ft Jared Maynard)
Strap yourself in people cause this episode is off the handle. With a blood oath, we welcome Jared Maynard to the red zone. Tait and Jared develop a deep bromance and Ellen fails to keep this conversation on track. This discussion covers:
*What is Pain? What is our understanding of pain?
*Acute vs Chronic Pain management?
*Mechanism of injury vs no clear mechanism
*Addressing client expectations
*What can allied health providers do when sharing a client with a practitioner who is not pain science-informed.
