Welcome back to Chat Sh*t Get Fit - Chatting W/ PTs. This week we chat to a physio who has weaponised memes and is taking on the world of physio in what we're calling "meme warfare" this man is Alexis Léveillé or as he's known on Instagram "nobullshitphysio". His page has been blowing up and for good reason - he is fiercely pro-science and makes sure those out there spreading misinformation are challenged but mostly using his weapon of choice - the meme.
A pretty heavy episode for sure as we explore things such as
His journey educationally and what needs to change
The good and bad of physio in general
How he navigates the field to stay up to date and effective
His red flags for "bad" research papers
Exploring the topic of experience vs science
Dealing with pain (Motion in lotion - obviously depends though!)
We also play a game involving ranking 4 "experts" in order of their ability to spread nonsense online!
