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. It will be amateurish, inconsistent, with poor sound quality and even poorer interviews… Be prepared for critical critique, dubious debate, quirky questions and lots of bad language!
 
Join co-hosts Sandy Hilton and Cory Blickenstaff, physical therapists who are "in the trenches" practicing in unique settings on opposite sides of United States, as they discuss current research and topics of pain science. Listen in on occasional interviews of the prominent figures of pain science. Focus will be on making the information meaningful to practice in the clinic.
