PT Inquest

PT Inquest

PT Inquest was started as a way to discuss the use of science and evidence in the practice of physical therapy. The podcast explores current research discussing strengths, weaknesses, and clinical application in an honest, open, and critical fashion. Hosted by Erik Meira and J.W. Matheson, the show is recorded weekly via online chat. It is like listening in on a journal club conversation, hopefully making the listener think more critically about their own practice and keeping their mind open to alternate and opposing ideas.
