Episode #78 Sleep

When I was younger my parents gave me worry dolls to help me sleep. I sat on the side of my bed, told them my troubles, placed them under my pillow and went to bed. Every night I’d rinse and repeat.

Sleeping is one of the biggest challenges people face. From tossing and turning, sleeping less to having poor quality sleep, a poor night’s sleep can have negative consequences in the days following.

The benefits of good quality sleep are endless. From healthy brain aging, to the positive management of stress.

During this episode I discuss sleep and things I have integrated into my daily routine that have helped me in a positive way.

If you’ve struggled with sleep in the past, what has helped you get back on track?

"An Attempt At Simplifying Central Sensitization" - Conor P. Collins

From the blog.

This week Jamie Johnston, from Massage Therapist Development Centre discusses central sensitization.

Another great read. I hope you enjoy it!

I remember having a patient back in college who would come in for treatment of back pain. The person was in their early 20’s and told me they were dealing with chronic pain in the area. As soon as I put my hands on them and pressed down, they quickly informed me that was too much pressure! I felt ...

Episode #77 The Conor McGregor injury

Episode #77 The Conor McGregor injury

On Saturday July 12, Conor McGregor suffered a dramatic injury while fighting Dustin Poirier for the 3rd time. As he stepped back in his stance, his leg caved out from underneath him.

This unfortunately, is not the first time we have seen an injury of this type in MMA this year. Just a few months ago Chris Weidman suffered the same injury under similar circumstances.

Could these injuries in some way be related? During this episode I break down Conor’s injury and the circumstances surrounding it pre and post fight.

I offer my opinion on return to sport timeline, as well as whether Conor will be able to compete at the elite level again.

What do you think? Is Conor’s career over?

Episode #76 Whiplash injuries

Episode #76 Whiplash injuries

Neck pain and whiplash is one of the common reasons people visit their family physician. Whiplash injuries while having classifications and categories are broad and complex in nature.

Recovery can range from something as straight forward as a 2-week timeline, to something more drawn out and frustrating. At times these injuries lead to permanent symptoms and disability.

During this episode I discuss a few thoughts on whiplash injuries and how I see them in the clinic. I discuss the relationship between concussion and whiplash and tools I try and use to separate the two as difficult as this is.

Lastly, I discuss a few treatment and exercise strategies I use generally use with these injuries.

If you’ve had a whiplash injury what has helped with your return to pre-injury status?

Episode #75 Exercise post-concussion

Episode #75 Exercise post-concussion

One of the most challenging things for individuals that have suffered a concussion is a return to their pre-injury status. For each person this may look a little different. Some may want to return to professional sports, while others want to return to work, school or simply spend more time with their grandkids.

While all of these activities may look a little bit different they are grounded in a similar foundation of re-adaptation of a system and its elements. One of these adaptations is the brain’s ability to withstand the stressor of cardiovascular exercise.

During this episode I discuss some of the principles behind progressing patients through cardio vascular exercise, resistance exercise as well as a few things I do in the clinic to help facilitate the process post-concussion.

If you’ve had a concussion what has helped with your return to pre-injury status?

Episode #74 Runner's knee

Episode #74 Runner's knee

This week’s episode was inspired by a post on instagram. The post had a runner battered, bruised and bloody from treatment to the IT band.

Runner’s knee is an injury that many runner’s go through. It’s very common in new runners, as well seasoned runners as they increase volume in their programs.

During this episode I discuss the potential causes and my thoughts around how to help runner’s knee. Runners are some of the passionate group of athletes I’ve met. Getting a runner back to running can be so important for many reasons.

Have you had runner’s knee? If so, what helped you get back on the road or trails?

Who is Conor

Growing up as an athlete I’ve always known I wanted to help people with injuries. After working the first 7-8 years of my career in the endurance sport world, I became fascinated with concussion injuries.

Driven by my own lack of knowledge I began to learn, research and learn some more. I’ve now developed my flagship concussion course for massage therapist “Understanding the Complexity of Concussion”.

I’ve decided to also share my journey to better understand concussions and injuries in a new Podcast, “The Concast”, available on the platforms below. I hope it provides you value.

Your suggestions and comments are always welcome.
