Nathan Carlson is a US-based Physical Therapist and co-host of the Runners Zone podcast. Brodie and Nathan talk about the importance of developing independence during a runner's rehabilitation and how a therapist needs to nature the independent process.
This is important for every runner to know whether you are injured or not. Some therapists may misdirect rehabilitation toward a short-term, dependant strategy, resulting in high consultation frequency & poor evidence-based approaches.
Nathan talks about hands-on, passive treatments and when they are validated versus exercise-based rehabilitation. He also discusses the importance of empowering the runner through this process.
Finally, Brodie and Nathan discuss red flags to look out for to see if you're on the wrong rehabilitation path.
