Session 16 – Biomechanics and Pain: The Ongoing Dilemma with Greg Lehman

Session 16 features an interview with Greg Lehman, a Canadian physiotherapist, chiropractor, kinesiologist and MSc Biomechanist who champions simplicity when applying biomechanical principles to patient management. Our clinical lead Jack Chew interviewed Greg following his day course hosted by Matt Phillips in Brighton last month and they chat over all things biomechanics, but with a particular focus on the common misconceptions encountered in clinical practice.

Greg is a very generous contributor to the CPD industry and his views can be found across a variety of media. Find him on Facebook under his name, on twitter @greglehman and on his website www.greglehman.ca
