Nick and Eric had the amazing opportunity this past week to sit down and chat with Dr. Ryan Smith, PT, DPT, ATC. Who is Dr. Ryan Smith? Well first off, he's an incredibly nice and down-to-earth guy. He also is one of the few people we know who started his own practice (uMove Physiotherapy and Performance) right out of graduating from physical therapy school. We were incredibly grateful for his time and the knowledge he shared with us during this interview. Today’s podcast content includes: -Taking the leap into cash based practice- the experiences behind the decision -The value of mentorship and proactive networking to get the most out of everything -What is missing from PT school education and how to go about getting it -Ryan’s management and motivation to overcome challenges as a new grad and business owner -What’s the future for a new start-up private PT practice in Columbus, Ohio -Advice for the current PT student on how to develop a professional career now -Ryan’s perspective on what makes a great new hire in the PT field

We had the pleasure of sitting down with physiotherapists Susan Clinton and Antony Lo for this week's edition of Two Knowbodies Talking. This was our first "destination" podcast in that Eric and I traveled out to Dr. Clinton's clinic: Embody Physiotherapy and Wellness in Sewickley, PA. Antony, based out of Sydney, Australia, had come to Pittsburgh to teach a continuing education course with Susan and we were lucky enough to connect with both of them the night before their course began. In this episode we hit on: -Pelvic health for the general public -Pelvic health for the high level athlete -The importance of screening and history taking with a person you may -suspect have a pelvic health issue -Accepting that results are happening, but challenging the "why" behind them happening -The importance of building trust with patients and how to empower them

Enjoy this podcast as Dr. Fraser explains how the bacteria in our gut might be dictating our levels of anxiety and depression, what we crave to eat, and if it could potentially be linked with Autism.

In this episode we speak with Dr. Joseph Brence, PT, DPT about what is pain and how can we as a society break away from our culture of pharmaceutical use to control pain. Dr. Brence has published numerous articles on the neurophysiology of pain and is currently a professor at Duquense University.
