I'm so happy to have you on. 00:06 Thanks very much for having me, Karen. It's great to be here. 00:08 Excellent. And today we're going to be talking about tendinopathy, maybe specifically Achilles tendinopathy. But before we get into that, I just want to let the listeners know that you're one of the amazing speakers at the fourth World Congress of sports, physical therapy taking place in Denmark at the end of this month, August 26, and 27th. And you will be talking about tendinopathy. So before we move on, I would love to know why. Why tendinopathy? How did that become sort of your specialty, your interest? 00:46 Yeah, tricky to sometimes answer these type of questions, really. But I've had tendon problems myself. So being active and sporty, I developed an Achilles problem, number of years back when I was a relatively junior physio, and we didn't really understand how we were trying to manage these things. And that took a long time to settle down. So that really sparked it off. And then not long after I developed poutine. And problem as well, my Achilles from wearing sorts of constricted footwear. So wearing wetsuits, boots, for a day, with doing wakeboarding and stuff. So developed the interest because I had the problem myself, which is probably the answer for most people, I think, with how we ended up specializing in one th

    Key Takeaways
    “Our insurance-based system is not ready to handle the far-reaching consequences of forced birth at a young age and botched abortions.” “We do need to know abortive procedures so that we can recognize when someone has been through an unsafe situation.” “We really need to take into consideration the ramifications of what this will do.” “This is not good healthcare and we need to do more.” “We’re going to have to know our rules, our laws, and what we’re willing to do and go through so that we can provide the care that we know our patients deserve.” “We’re looking at the criminalization of healthcare. That is not healthcare.” “We know who this criminalization of healthcare is going to affect the most. It’s going to affect poor, marginalized people of color.” “We can no longer choose to stay in our lane.” “We need to have a public health physio on the labour and delivery, and on maternity floors.” “We don’t get to have an opinion on the right or wrongness of this. We have a problem ahead of us that is happening already as we speak.” “We need to create more innovators in our field, and education is the way to do that.” “This is frustrating and new, and we’re not going to abandon you. We’re going to figure it out and be there to help.” “Our clinics are still safe. We are still treating you based on what you are dealing with, and we will not be dictated by anybody else.” “If you need help, there is help.” “If we believe in the autonomy of an individual to know all of the information before making a decision, then we still believe in the autonomy of an individual to know all of the information that is best for their body.” “This affects everyone. We’re dedicated to advocating for you.”
