Adam Meakins
Hosted by Adam Meakins (aka The Sports Physio), The Not Another F**king (NAF) Physio Podcast promises to be unlike any other! Talking about things that matter, but don't really matter.

044 Talking about sham and placebo exercises in rehab!
So for this month’s episode Adam and Greg discuss sham and placebo exercises in rehab. Now this topic is clearly raising lots of questions and doubts about our specific exercises and how and why those exercises help people with aches and pains. But does this mean that our specific exercises are useless and not necessary when sham and placebos work just as well, and does this also mean we can do whatever the hell we like with our exercise prescriptions? Warning: Watch out for a rather strong and long Adam rant at the beginning! If you would like access to the show reference list and video please go to our Patreon page here:
