NY Times Wellness blog just had a recent post on the lasting effects of exercise on the brain (using rats). Seems like all the research is going to the brain now doesn’t it? Unfortunately what they found is that the effects of memory are short-lasting. You can read the whole article here. I would imagine this being true just in regards to how the body reacts physiologically to exercise. You can’t just be active once and think it will last…stay moving!
Dr. Erson Religioso over at themanualtherapist.com just posted a blog on “3 myths of MDT (McKenzie)”. Great read for students and practitioners alike, especially myself who does not have formal training in this approach. I was recently debunked from a MDT diplomat when I mentioned that I normally put my hands on low back pain patients first (just speaking generally on differences in OMPT and MDT). She didn’t seem to like that too much! So…not sure who is telling the truth here. Maybe it was just a defensive tactic.
