When to get medical scans with Paul Ingraham

The Run Smarter Podcast

Paul Ingraham is a Vancouver science writer and a former Registered Massage Therapist.  He left that profession over concerns about pseudoscientific beliefs and practices and went on to create PainScience.com, a website about the science of pain, injury, treatment, and rehab, where he has published hundreds of articles and ten books on these themes, the most successful of which is his guide to the tricky topic of “trigger points.” Today, Paul talks with Brodie about the pros and cons of medical scans. When injured, a diagnosis can help calm down the anxieties and confusion about recovery, but is getting medical scans always the answer?

We dive into the protocols and presentations that may indicate getting a scan and the precautions one must consider.

Lastly, Paul talks about the myths and misconceptions about bone stress injuries and the general consensus on stress fracture management.
