    038 Talking About Spinal Flexion When Lifting

    038 Talking About Spinal Flexion When Lifting

    In this episode Greg and Adam discuss an always controversial topic: Bending when lifting. Should we keep our backs straight when picking things up? Is is ok to allow the spine to flex when bending forward? In this episode they discuss a recent systematic review published in JOSPT (https://www.jospt.org/doi/abs/10.2519/jospt.2020.9218) that questions some commonly held, deeply entrenched beliefs about lifting with a bent spine. As usual be prepared for some strong views, opinions and of course some language.

    034 Talking About Motor Control and Motor Accidents

    In this slightly delayed episode due to some unforeseen circumstances Adam and Greg discuss the concept of motor control exercises which are popular in low back pain management and rehab in the belief that they correct faulty issues with specific stabilising muscles.

    But do they? Do motor control exercises, control motor function, or are they just a giant over complicated waste of time and no better than general exercise? Come join us as we try to find out.
