PhysioTwitter, learning on social media and physiotherapy ethics

Sports Physio Luke Murray

Evie and Luke from PhysiosOnline talk about social media, learning on twitter, and unhelpful pain narratives amount other topics.

  • The benefits of twitter and how physios can use it as a learning tool
  • Examples of helpful, constructive twitter interactions and how it might change people’s minds
  • Our responsibility as healthcare professionals to disseminate accurate health information-
  • The Netflix series The Unwell,  “it’s very amusing, it’s terrifying and then it’s sad”.
  • Luke’s own experience of back pain and how the narrative around it may have harmed him, or not!
  • Another of Luke’s unfortunate injury experiences, where he had a physio attempt to do “deep tissue release” on a … stress fracture!
  • The problem with high-profile sportspeople publicising and promoting dubious treatments for pain and injury
  • Ethics in private physiotherapy practice
