PE025 Groin assessment with Dr Kristian Thorborg
How can you identify the reason your patient has groin pain and the structures that may be causing it? Groin pain is one of the most common issues in a lot of sports, particularly the football codes, and in episode 25 of the Physio Edge podcast, David Pope talks to Dr Kristian Thorborg about assessment of the groin.
Some of the topics we discuss on this podcast include:
Types of groin injuries Identifying and diagnosing groin pain and injury Groin vs hip pain Tests you can perform to identify the irritated or painful structures The relevance of diagnostic imaging, and when to refer for this Hip and Groin Outcome Score (HAGOS) Using the HAGOS in your clinic Adductor related groin pain Hip flexor related groin pain Abdominal related groin pain The hip joint Pubic symphysis Sports Hernias Testing hip strength Assessment of function And much more!
I had Kristian on the Physio Edge podcast for episode 21 discussing hamstring injury prevention, and wanted to get him back to discuss his other area of special interest - the groin. I am sure you will get as much out of this episode with Kristian as I did, and you will be all over diagnosis of groin pain by the end of the episode. Enjoy!

PE 024 Thoracic Ring Approach with Dr Linda-Joy (LJ) Lee
The thorax is often considered stiff and stable by Physiotherapists and manual therapists, and precious little of our undergrad or postgrad training incorporating or seeing the need for motor control of this area.
In episode 24 of the Physio Edge podcast, LJ Lee and David Pope explore the function of the thorax, the impact the thorax can have, not only on thoracic pain, but also on other parts of the body. We discuss the Thoracic Ring Approach (TRA) created by LJ, which incorporates manual techniques to assess and treat the thoracic rings, and integrates motor control training for this area. In this podcast you will learn:
What bones and joints make up a “Thoracic ring”
Is the thorax inherently stiff?
What is ideal motor control of the thorax?
How can listeners identify non-optimal control of the thorax in their patients
How can motor control of the thorax be trained?
Identifying articular/joint restriction vs neuromuscular factors interfering with normal thorax movement
How can the thorax impact on other areas of the body eg the hip
When is manipulation of the thorax ideal?
What are some guidelines for manipulation of the thorax?
and much more. Download this podcast free from iTunes, or listen on the link below

Shoulder pain - what are the causes, and how can you treat it? Are your special tests around the shoulder really isolating and identifying pathology? How can the rotator cuff still function with small and large tears?
In Episode 22 of the Physio Edge podcast, Jeremy Lewis and David Pope discuss these questions and more including:
What is the value of special tests around the shoulder? What diagnosis can you provide your patients for their shoulder pain How can you identify if you need to focus your treatment on the scapula, glenohumeral joint, cervical spine or thorax? How can you identify a rotator cuff tendinopathy? What is the Rotator Cable, and how is it important in rotator cuff tears? Is the acromion really the cause of “impingement” or subacromial pain? If a patient has a biceps tendinopathy and a rotator cuff tendinopathy, which should be treated first? What contributes to biceps tendinopathy? Theraband - valuable? When imaging of the shoulder is valuable, and when it is a waste of time Frozen shoulder - what treatments work well
And much more.
