Presented by Jack Chews of Chews Health, the series explores musculoskeletal and sports medicine for those working in physiotherapy, sports therapy, sports rehabilitation, medicine and features guests who specialise in a range of related fields. We’re delighted to announce Firefly Orthoses have sponsored the most recent edition of the podcast (session 18) which features an extensive interview with consultant sports podiatrist Ian Griffiths.

  • The ‘Old 3 Step Model’ Vs the Tissue Stress Approach,
  • the role of orthoses in kinetics and load management,
