PT Inquest Episode 65: Interpreting Pain Research
There are a maze of treatment options for people with pain, “each backed by enthusiastic and highly motivated advocates, all of whom lay claim to ‘evidence'”. How do clinicians wade through all the different ideas out there and get a handle on effectiveness? Or is it efficacy? Confused? Even if you’re not, listen to this episode with special guest Neil O’Connell!!!
