Physio Edge podcast

Barefoot running has been sweeping the globe in the last few years, and as a Physio, which of your patients are best suited to this type of running technique. How does running technique relate to a runner’s pain and dysfunction, and really, what is the ideal running technique?

In this podcast with Blaise Dubois – a Physiotherapist with a clinic, website and courses devoted to helping runners and Physiotherapists that treat runners, we chat about these topics, as well as:

  • Running assessment
  • Biomechanics of running
  • Improving running technique and performance
  • Which patients should change their running technique
  • Barefoot running
  • Heelstrike and landing
  • Current evidence on running technique
  • Injury prevention in runners
  • Downhill running technique
  • Footwear for running
  • Improving running in patients with pathology eg Achilles Tendinopathy
  • Blaise has also been kind enough to provide a PDF handout to go along with this podcast, which is available for free download.

Patients regularly present for Physiotherapy with lateral hip pain. This is often aggravated by walking or standing, sidesleeping, performing hip stretches, and sitting, amongst other activities, and lateral hip pain can often mimic lumbar spine pathology. In this podcast, Alison and I discuss symptoms, assessment and treatment of an extremely common cause of lateral hip pain – Glute Med Tendinopathy (GMT), a condition which is often misdiagnosed as Trochanteric Bursitis.

Some of the aspects we explore in this podcast are:

  • Subjective clues that someone may have a Glute Med Tendinopathy

  • “Trochanteric Bursitis”

  • Differentiating Glute Med Tendinopathy from pain of Lumbar origin

  • Assessment of the hip

  • Tests to confirm or rule out a Glute Med Tendinopathy

  • Causes of a Glute Med Tendinopathy

  • Advice for patients

  • Treatment of Glute Med Tendinopathy

  • Deep hip muscle activation

  • Essential elements for an effective treatment program much more
