#Ep.27: "So Pain Is All In My Head?" with Greg Lehman
 -
Many runners are starting to hear/read more frequently that although a particular pain FEELS like it's coming from e.g. the knee, it's actually being outputted by the brain & nervous system. An explanation of the significance of this distinction typically follows, but by then all the average runner is thinking is "So you're saying this pain is in my HEAD?" Needless to say, this can often be harmful for the therapist/runner relationship! 

But fear not, because in this episode we have one of the best in the business here with us on Runchatlive to help explain how both therapists & runners can deal with such issues: Gregory Lehman.

There's few who have had such a long & impressive career as Gregory Lehman. He was one of two students who back in 1996 trained with the highly respected Professor Stuart McGill in the Occupational Biomechanics Laboratory. As an assistant professor at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College teaching a graduate level course in Spine Biomechanics and Instrumentation, Greg has published over 20 peer reviewed papers in the manual therapy & exercise biomechanics field.

Today, Gregory Lehman takes his internationally acclaimed  'Reconciling Biomechanics with Pain Science' workshop around the world and is regarded as a leading authority. Using his incredible knowledge of research, Greg shows how a simple yet science based interpretation of biomechanics can be complemented with concepts from modern pain science.

Sadly, Greg is not able to join us at the up & coming the 'RCL International Running Conference 2019' this October 30/31 in Brighton, UK (full details: https://RCL2019.eventbrite.com). We may well try and hook up live via satellite...
