Why things hurt

Many of the most eminent names in physiotherapy have descended on Glasgow over the past week for #IFOMPT2016, the conference of the ‘International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Physical Therapists’. Flex was there!

One of the most fascinating things about the conference is that despite it’s name, the programme was dominated by pain and exercise science rather than manual therapy. This largely reflects the direction of travel in the research literature.

One of the highlights of the week was Lorimer Moseley, a world renowned physio and Professor of Neuroscience. In the TEDx video below, Prof Moseley takes a brief and entertaining look at ‘why things hurt’. Enjoy!
