In this week’s episode of The Radical Health Rebel Podcast entitled, “Lower Back Pain and Movement Optimization”, I sat down with Eoin Everard, a Chartered Physiotherapist and a lecturer in Sports Medicine and Strength and conditioning who has a PhD in biomechanics, and often works with people with lower back pain. Eoin is also a very accomplished middle-distance runner and is the current World over 35s Indoor 3000m Champion.

When Eoin approached me about coming on the show, I thought it would make for a really interesting dialogue between the two of us coming from different educational backgrounds, but both very experienced in helping people with with lower back pain.

We discussed:

  • Eoin’s background
  • The first hour is the most important for lumbar disc pain
  • Viscero-somatic reflex and lower back pain
  • Pins & Needles in the legs
  • Piriformis Syndrome
  • Cauda Equina and Spinal Stenosis
  • The Neutral Spine Lifting controversy
  • Thoracic mobility and lower back pain
  • Biomechanical devolution from Cavemen
  • Trendelenburg Sign and lower back pain
