We’re talking about pelvises (or is it pelvi?) on episode 13! We discuss a specific paper that is both specific to pelvic pain and highlights some controversies that are more general in pain science. This is in Sandy’s wheel house and she doesn’t disappoint as she walks through some clinical applications while Cory tries to compensate for his discomfort with bad jokes.
