In this episode we will talk about the demonization of and the future of manual therapy with Chad Cook.

One of the latest papers he has published is called “The Demonization of manual therapy” where he evaluated common critique on manual therapy based on the current literature. News: We do have an announcement to make: You might be wondering why you’re listening to a podcast host with a German accent. Our former podcast host Sunny Sandhu has left us to work in the clinic again full-time after hosting our podcast for 46 episodes. We wish him all the best and his British accent will be dearly missed. To view and download the bonus content such as transcripts of this episode become a Physiotutors Member.
