Today we have a very special guest on the podcast

Dave O Sullivan one of the best physiotherapists in professional sport

He recently came back from Australia with the England rugby league team who had a successful campaign under legendary coach Wayne Bennett

I met Dave back in 2013 when we were both working with the Huddersfield Giants in Super League.

The Giants had not won silverware for over eighty years.

Continual story of failure

Doomed to be a ‘minnow’

That season the Giants won the league leaders trophy

Top of the league

Beating the ‘big’ teams such as Wigan, Leeds and St Helens

For me one of the main reason was what Dave O Sullivan did with the players

He got them back on the pitch after injury in remarkable time, he kept them on the pitch. The long term injuries that plague so many teams was minimal

For me he worked ‘magic’

Dave has been kind enough to say that a lot of this was down to the fact that he incorporated a LOT of Mind Factor principles

He totally bought into the concept of

‘The Story’

How we all carry a story around with us

If we don’t challenge that story it will just keep playing out on auto pilot dictating the course of our lives

Dave changed that with the Giants

 

In this podcast we talk about

 

How the ‘story’ has affected Dave’s work in terms of both injury recovery and prevention

 

How the mind can be engaged to speed up recovery

 

The vital need to have CLEAR INTENT

 

Most people have a clear idea of what they DON’T want

 

I don’t want to be in pain

 

The brain has little to work with

 

How we can engage the brain to create a really healthy body and effective movement

 

How the language we use around pain and recovery has such a dramatic effect

 

How movement is MEDICINE

 

How your breathing can have such a big impact on injury recovery

 

We are meant to move

 

The effect of variability in our training

 

The need to look at your training program with fresh eyes

 

Creating a great environment for your body to thrive

 

Good and bad coaching environments

 

Why Wayne Bennett is such a great coach

 

Observations from the frontline of professional sport

 

If you want to move better, have less pain and a generally healthy life this podcast is a must
