    Patients Perspective: Traumatic Brain Injury with Curtis Anderson

    Patients Perspective: Traumatic Brain Injury with Curtis Anderson

    This months guest is Curtis Anderson, a severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) survivor for a new area we’re looking to dive deeper into on the podcast – the patient’s perspective. We talk to Curtis about his 20 year journey and how he defied what was initially thought possible for the full extent of his rehab. After 3 weeks in a medically induced coma he spent a year in a rehabilitation center and he has since gone on a journey to be a motivational speaker helping other get through their own journeys as the prime example of what can happen when you don’t give up, even after 20 years, when you are determined to treat every day as an opportunity to do better, be better and perform better. In his own words, it took him 8 years to learn to drive again, 8 years to use a staircase with the railing on the left side, 10 years to be able to pick up change from the counter top & 16 years to pick it up off of the ground! He's an inspiration and the personification of never giving up and I hope you enjoy hearing about his journey as much as I have!

    Pelvic Floor Physio with Dr. Sarah Haag

    Pelvic Floor Physio with Dr. Sarah Haag

    On this episode I speak to Dr Sarah Haag about pelvic floor physiotherapy - from what we need to listen to when talking to our patients to when we should refer on for a specialist and beyond! Tune in to this episode as we explore an area of the body that has, for me, for all intents and purposes, been a bit of a black hole that, I admittedly say on the podcast - I'm glad I've worked previously with pelvic floor specialists in the same clinic as I would never have even recognised to refer on in the past! An area under-explored by our education (there's a lot to cover during the education - not hating) I hope this episode can, for you, help shine a light on the area where the sun don't shine!

    Lower Limb Orthopedics & Communication with Dr Ahmad Malik

    Lower Limb Orthopedics & Communication with Dr Ahmad Malik

    On this edition of the podcast we talk with Dr Ahmad Malik, foot & ankle orthopedic consultant. We start the discussion looking at surgeries, what constitutes a good or bad candidate for surgery as well as reactions to metal work after the fact. In addition to that, we discuss the importance of listening to your patients and fully exploring their situation and not just writing them off as a complaining patient or the classic "get over it" sort of answer! It's something that we as healthcare professionals should value very highly and a conversation that everyone can take something from, however it's safe to say given the conversations I've had with both patients and fellow colleagues as a result of the podcast that not all healthcare professionals take the time to fully hear what their patient is telling them!

    Achilles Tendon Rupture with Lizzie Marlow

    Achilles Tendon Rupture with Lizzie Marlow

    On this episode of the podcast I talk with Lizzie Marlow, an MSK physiotherapist & educator specialising in lower limbs with special interests in running injuries, lower limb tendinopathies & of course management & treatment of achilles ruptures. We talk about everything surrounding Achilles tendon rupture rehabilitation. From the initial assessment to the rehabilitation - as well as what is important at the initial stages of identifying the rupture (I have unfortunately seen a 1 or 2 missed...) - utilising ultrasound to get the optimal position for the torn tendon to repair as well as decisions on whether or not to operate, then guiding through the rehabilitation process itself!

    Neuro-Sport & Rehab with Katie Mitchell

    Neuro-Sport & Rehab with Katie Mitchell

    This time we speak with Katie Mitchell, a researcher, educator, physical therapist, athletic therapist & clinic owner with a special interest in concussions and rehabilitation as well as the role our neuromuscular connection plays into rehab - not just in the post concussion athlete, but para-athletes, musculoskeletal complaints & rehab as a whole! We discuss compensation strategies - briefly how & why they come about, as well as how Katie tackles that in rehabilitation by getting the patient to indirectly address the compensation strategies through task modification! We also touch on how we can use these strategies for something as simple as an ankle sprain, to post op & more! Tune in to find out more!
