Session 52 – Correcting for Corrections – Manual Handling Myths with Ash James

Is there a more deeply embedded myth than the concept of spinal sparing in manual handling practices? We’re struggling to think of of one so it’s got to be up there at the top? In this month’s TPMP, Jack grills long time friend of the show Ash James on his PhD research into manual; handling practices, his advocacy for more movement liberation in Occ Health and his and IPRS’ plans to reform the manual handling training industry.

Expect a detailed chat ranging from the physiology of disc adaptation to the promotion of evidence based messages in the media. It’s a belter… but we always say that…

Huge thanks to IPRS Health for sponsoring the episode and for supporting our mate and their Clinical Lead Ash James in his pursuit of progress! If you’re interested in Occ Health roles and want an employer who understands holistic biopsychosocial care at the level of both the patient and the employee then keep your eyes peeled for roles with IPRS, a leading light in a contentious industry.
