Back to blogging! Not here though…

Well, I’m blogging again… !mindandmovement

I’ve started a new blog with a friend: www.mind-and-movement.com — a blog about the science of how we learn and control movement. This time it’s more specifically about the stuff I study in my PhD work. I’ve missed blogging and I think a good researcher should do at least *some* knowledge translation, so here we are!

Good help is hard to come by, so this time I dragged along my friend Christopher Lee Friesen. He works in the same lab and spent some time as a sports writer. I’m pretty sure he’s gonna rock at this. I hope we can provide some interesting material. And more importantly, we look forward to some interesting discussions with you in the comments.

New ebook on knee pain! ‘Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome’

The book explains and discusses the condition in great detail, including every imaginable self-treatment option and all the available scientific evidence.

I’m very proud to have contributed to this ebook. There’s definitely a need for well written science translation, especially when it comes to common, confusing pain conditions like this. Continue Reading

Updates — big changes coming!

I'm gonna be a scientist!

I’m gonna be a scientist!

Once I blogged every few weeks. Now it seems like every few months. Why?

Only two posts ago — which was actually seven months back — I explained what I was up to. Basically, transitioning from a full time clinician to a full time researcher.

For those of you who may be wondering, here are some updates, and some big things to come…Continue Reading

Land like a dancer — prevent injuries?

Check out the following video from NYU Langone’s Harkness Center for Dance Injuries (HCDI).

I think there may be some merit in the ideas proposed in this video. In other words, it confirms my biases! I’ve blogged years ago about how “neuromuscular training“, as it’s usually named, has been shown to prevent injuries, and research continues to mount in its favor.Continue Reading
