Professor Peter O’Sullivan on Tiger Woods’ back and ‘core strength' - BMJ talk medicine PODCAST

 

In this podcast Professor Peter O'Sullivan shares his thoughts on the recent media attention around Tiger Woods' obvious back pain while playing in the US PGA. He discusses what the pathology might be, why the media suggested that Mr Woods’ ‘sacrum went out’. He contends that ‘core strengthening’ may not be the panacea. The lessons apply to the management of low back pain, and other pain, in a myriad of settings.

Peter is a Specialist Physiotherapist (as awarded by the Australian College of Physiotherapists in 2005) and Professor at Curtin Univeristy.

Professor Lorimer Moseley Lecture 27 Aug at Curtin University

Lorimer Moseley 27 Aug 2014

Ideas to practice:
 
Professor Lorimer Moseley and Professor Peter O’Sullivan and their respective research groups are embarking on an exciting new collaboration, emphasising the integration of clinical observation and intrigue, with scientific method and rigour. Over the top? Perhaps, but more importantly, ‘Observe, Test, Treat’.  Both Lorimer and Peter are clinicians and researchers with an international reputation for innovation and rigour.  They have decided to launch the OTT collaboration in order to combine resources, with the first seminar in a new interstate programme, called ‘Ideas into practice’.

This first seminar, by Professor Lorimer Moseley is called “The Body in Mind: Disruption of the brain’s maps of body and space in chronic pain.” Funds generated from the seminars are being used for pain research.
 
Here is the abstract:
The link between how our body feels, and how it actually is, is something we tend to take for granted. That is, until things start to go awry. In this talk Lorimer will describe some of the developments in our understanding of this relationship and how this relationship seems to hold, even when both our body, and what it feels like, has gone awry. He will present the concept of ‘The cortical body matrix’ as a model with which to make sense of these developments and to float the idea that we might be able to influence the relationship in all three directions – top-down, bottom-up and crossways.  For example, he will present a range of pilot study data, unpublished and as such a bit speculative, that suggest we can alter motor control by modulating brain-held maps of space; that we can change swelling by messing with vision; that we can modulate immune responses by manipulating sense of body ownership.
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear Lorimer, support pain research, contribute your ideas and take something new and exciting away with you.
