After a month away Adam comes back with a bang! In this episode he talks with the well-known and respected Dr Mick Thacker about pain, the brain, and the person. Mick has recently been involved in some rather heated debates on these subjects and has been misinterpreted and misquoted in his discussions. In this episode Mick voices his concerns and warns us against becoming too brain bound when explaining and managing those in pain.

In this episode Adam also questions Mick about his thoughts and feelings on social media, peer review, and the thorny subject of the academic-clinical divide and the issues it creates.

Mick’s recent editorial in the Journal of the Physiotherapy Pain Association questioning if “pain is in the brain” is available by clicking here.
