    All About the SacroIliac Joint with Wilfried Simon AKA the Spine Physio

    All About the SacroIliac Joint with Wilfried Simon AKA the Spine Physio

    The sacroiliac joint is an area that remains contentious despite all of the research that’s taken place and in this episode, we are chatting to Wilfried Simon, an osteopath and physio from Belgium about the misconceptions, if it can be a cause of pain and what to do if it is

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    It’s a connection point but there isn’t much movement, only 3 degrees and its deep within the spine
    If you want the patient to be able to treat themselves and achieve autonomy they have to understand what’s wrong
    When you have manipulation it’s about what it creates overall including how the person thinks about it
    Identify the movement that is painful and work with the patient to make the movement less sensitive through changing the axis of the movement and building the confidence of the patient to complete movements
    Trust the future and the process, not very day is the same, not every day is pain free but that’s what make the patient stronger and you stronger

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘It’s important to treat the person not the problem’

    ‘There is aways a combination of what’s happening mechanically to the joint and how the patient perceives and feels about what’s happening’

    Why I Should Do my Exercises? A Good Analogy for Understanding

    Why I Should Do my Exercises? A Good Analogy for Understanding

    Dave and Rob are having a behind the treatment room door chat about their working week as chiropractors

    They discuss the importance of exercise plans and how increasing functional capacity is an important element of any treatment plan and share a great analogy to help understanding

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    Any conservative or passive care doesn’t necessarily decrease pain from issues such as osteoarthritis
    People assume massage is aimed at reducing pain but its about increasing functional capacity
    If we improve the capacity of someone’s knee health then it means they can do more
    Exercise increases the capacity and your threshold so you are increasing functional capacity
    You have to look at the bigger picture, if you knee or back is stopping you doing the things you want in life then surgery may be the option to consider
    If you are utilising exercise as part of your treatment plan you need to look at usage and function as well as lessening pain levels
    Having an expectation of no pain can result in less resilience

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘You may be able to do more with the same amount of pain’

    ‘Pain is a very normal aspect of society’

    ‘We can usually increase your capacity but this may not lessen the level of pain’

    Can the Name of my Diagnosis Do More Harm Than Good?

    Can the Name of my Diagnosis Do More Harm Than Good?

    Dave and Rob are talking about diagnostic labels and particularly those for lower back pain

    Lower back pain is a complex and multifactorial condition and a specific diagnosis may not reflect the underlying causes or mechanisms for the pain so does a specific label help or hinder?

    This is a learning episode where the discussion is a great opportunity to carefully consider what you do as a clinician with the evolution of diagnostic labelling

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    The research is now saying a diagnostic label is not as important as previously thought
    There is back pain that needs a specific diagnosis but this is not the case for the  majority of non-specific back pain
    With non-specific back pain we know it’s nothing sinister or serious and what’s left is a combination of other things
    Many things can be contributing to the pain and the treatments and outcomes are similar for non-specific back pain
    Understanding the multifactorial and compounding aspect of non-specific back pain means there are a multitude of things you can do to help yourself
    The vast majority of patients will be better in 12 weeks
    It makes sense for us to stop using these labels and be better at explaining

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘Our previous notion of a single answer to find is a bit immature’

    ‘A more holistic approach may lead to better outcomes’

    ‘This is evolving and changing our diagnostic labelling in line with current research’

The back pain podcast:

My new favourite podcast! Only discovered it a week ago and have listened to 4 episodes and shared with grateful clients several times so far. A must listen to all people affected by back pain and for all clinicians supporting patients with back pain. 👏👏👏

Kersti V. ,

Podcast Gold!

This is a fantastic podcast to listen to and I’m constantly recommending it to others too. So many myths are busted and also new evidence based science/ treatment is explained and discussed. Well done Rob and Dave, it’s great to listen to up to date and like minded clinicians.
