Ask Me Anything #6
Play • 40 min

Welcome to another episode of The Words Matters Podcast.

Many of you may be familiar with a recent paper I was proud to co-author titled: Avoiding nocebo and other undesirable effects in chiropractic, osteopathy and physiotherapy: An invitation to reflect – Journal of MSK Science and Practice.

We are very keen to engage the readership in this topic and are inviting readers and listeners of the podcast to critically reflect on the paper and submit questions and comments for a future podcast discussion. Your comments, questions can be submitted via the link here


On this Ask Me Anything I give my thoughts on the following questions:

  • How to teach BPS model & clinical reasoning in academic settings?
  • Should MSK practitioners do a degree in psychology?  
  • How do you organise your evaluation & treatment within/between sessions?
  • What do you wish knew when you started/you best advice to students?
  • What are the best and worst papers you've read? (spoiler here and here are two of my favourites)
  • Do you crack people’s necks? 
  • How do you balance views as a constructionist/relativist stance with objectively implausible claims?
  • What are your thoughts on reassurance and the recent discussion on Twitter? (here
