Among other things we discussed the first Critical Physiotherapy Course, which kicked off with David Nicholls on The Architecture of Movement a few weeks ago. The course will have six more talks from six very exciting critical thinkers. We were impressed by the conversation that followed David’s talk.

A few days ago, a woman posted a message on to a local community Facebook page asking for the following advice; Has anyone had any experience with sciatica nerve pain and useful treatment?

The advice that followed all came from local people and probably represented a fair snapshot of what many people currently think about the management of back pain. I've printed the whole exchange below - it's long enough to be inclusive, but not too long - so that you can draw your own conclusions, but here are a few thoughts that occurred to me reading through it.* All posts bar one were from women.
