Episode 15: Nick & Adam vol 2

August was a month full of learning for both Adam & Nick, and this week their conversation revolved around what they’ve been doing. It revolved around pain, neurogenic inflammation, strategies to most effectively create neuroplastic changes in the somatosensory cortex, as well as the vestibular system and  it’s overlooked influence and much more, all while having some good laughs.

Freshly back from a course taught by Dr. David Traster (see week 2) called Brain Based Solutions, which combined neurologic tests (particularly vestibular that weekend) and muscle testing principles, you’ll hear their thoughts about the weekend.  They also talked about the art of extrapolating information, Applied Functional Science and the power of integrated movement, and where they plan on concentrating their professional and personal growth over the coming months.  Enjoy.
