Another fantastic Australian Physiotherapy Association conference comes to a close with Star Physio's Dr Merv Travers, James Lewin and Damian Oldmeadow being amongst a sadly small WA contingent in attendance. Physio research and new important findings to help our clients moves fast, but sadly our profession does not ensure that all physios keep up to date. A few key points from the conference.
1. Pain is a warning not necessarily a sign of damage.
2. Question whether you really need that scan. Most scans merely show variations of normal findings which are often misinterpreted as injuries.
3. Consider physio driven exercise for nearly all injuries first, regardless of signs of wear and tear or even tendon damage.
4. Make sure that tailored exercise is a major part of most treatment.
