    Episode #111 Support and communication in brain injury

    Episode #111 Support and communication in brain injury

    I recently wrote a blog post about the nuances of communication and support for those that have suffered a brain injury.

    I came research by Togher in 2012, that discussed the importance a supportive partner can play in the recovery process.

    The paper outlines aspect of collaborative vs. Non-collaborative communication.

    During this episode I review the paper and how I believe it will change my practice moving forward.

    What importance do you think communication plays in healthcare?

    Comment below. We’ll see you in the next one!

    Episode #110 I got bit by a tick

    Episode #110 I got bit by a tick

    This past week I got bit by a tick after hiking in the trails.

    I didn’t understand the potential complications with tick bites ,until I reached out to healthcare colleagues and started researching tick bites.

    During this episode I review the circumstances surrounding the bite, and the advice I have been given up until this point.

    Tick bites are no joke and should be handled in a timely manner. Thank you to everyone that has helped me so far!

    Have you been bit by a tick?

    Episode #109 Ten things I've learned from owning a clinic

    Episode #109 Ten things I've learned from owning a clinic

    During this week’s episode, I discuss the things I’ve learned after 15 years of co-operating a multi disciplinary clinic.

    When I first started in business I was 25 years old.

    I had no idea what I was doing but I took a chance on myself. Now 15 years later, and through many mistakes, I feel as though I’ve learned a thing or two.

    During this conversation, I hope to share things with you that you can implement into your business practices to better help you and the people you serve?

    What has been the biggest thing you’ve learned as a business owner?

    Comment below. We’ll see you in the next one!

    Episode #107 Dystonia

    Episode #107 Dystonia

    During this week’s episode I discuss dystonia.



    Dystonia is a neuro metabolic movement disorder where a person can experience pain, extreme spasm and holding patterns in one or multiple areas of the body.



    Often inherited this can be very uncomfortable to live with. Throughout this episode I discuss how dystonia is classified, the concept of spasm and rigidity and the common disorders dystonia is often paired with. Lastly, I lend my thoughts to treatment strategies to consider when helping people with dystonia.



    Do you have any experience with this disorder?



    Comment below. We’ll see you in the next one!

Informative and useful

I love this podcast. As a practicing body worker, I find it super informative and full of useful tips and interesting concepts that give me something to think about.

The only downside is that the volume is very variable. During each podcast there’s a big difference in volume between the introductory music (loud) and Conor’s voice (quiet) and the interviewee’s voice (loud), which can be challenging for the listener.
