Professor Ian Harris, author of Surgery, the Ultimate Placebo explains how commonly performed operations can be found to be useless or even harmful when properly evaluated. That these claims come from an experienced, practising orthopaedic surgeon who has performed many of these operations himself, makes the unsettling argument particularly compelling.

I recently spoke to Dr Larry Steinbeck who is a Physical Therapist from the United States. He teaches Fascial Manipulation Technique will bring you up to date with everything you need to know about the latest in Fascia.


I was delighted to speak with such a highly respected & published researcher because we are going to learn so much from this interview.

He serves as Department Chair and Acting Director for the Krasnow Institute & teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in the Department of Molecular Neurosciences and Program in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. He conducts research using mathematical models in the areas of cardiovascular physiology, cell signaling, cell energetics, and biochemical reaction networks.

He  has the longest CV I have ever read! It’s 51 pages long.

Evidence Based vs Evidence Informed, Diagnosis by probability & the latest about Pain.


Headaches are so prevalent, they're a big part of our practices, with an average of around 96% lifetime prevalence in our Society. Dr. Cesar Fernandez de las Penas has contributed much to our understanding of this important presentation, including an excellent book: Tension-Type and Cervicogenic Headache: Pathopsysiology, Diagnosis, and Management.


Last month I was very lucky to be able to talk to Professor Helene Langevin, Professor in residence at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School and a visiting Professor at the University of Vermont in the USA.

Listen to this fascinating podcast & see what the Professor has to say about these topics:

  • The connection between connective tissue stiffness & the risk of cancer
  • People with lower back pain have thicker connective tissue
  • Treating an inversion sprains of the ankle using Dry Needling Therapy
  • Needle grasp is caused by connective tissue not muscle fibres
Listen to Professor Orlando Mayoral talking about the extraordinary research he’s carried out on patients that had a knee arthroplasty procedure & how he tested the ability of Dry Needling to help these patients.

We’ll dissect his research & break it down so we can all understand what it means for us as Dry Needling Therapists.

Have you ever read a research paper or even a conclusion & still couldn’t work out whether the findings were relevant, important or even valid? 

Do you know what these terms mean: P value, standard deviation, confidence intervals, sensitivity, specificity, mean, mode &medians? If you don’t, you should. Any practitioner who wants to provide the best care possible to their patients MUST know how to read research papers & be able to understand the relevance to their practice.

Dr Graham Taylor is going to make things really easy for us when trying to understand Medical Statistics. He will only speak in PLAIN ENGLISH. So, you’ll walk away with a good basic understanding of what’s important to know as a clinician & what should be left to the experts.
