The Run Smarter Podcast

Jun 12, 2022

Paul Ingraham is a Vancouver science writer and a former Registered Massage Therapist.  He left that profession over concerns about pseudoscientific beliefs and practices and went on to create, a website about the science of pain, injury, treatment, and rehab, where he has published hundreds of articles and ten books on these themes, the most successful of which is his guide to the tricky topic of “trigger points.” Today, Paul talks with Brodie about the science behind trigger point release, myofascial release and other manual therapies.  

This candid conversation reveals our real understanding of manual therapy and the careful steps runners need to make when being treated by therapists.
