Runchative Ep.41 Coronavirus with Adam Meakins and Mike James

by | Mar 16, 2020 | Podcast Episodes

In this rather impromptu but very necessary episode of RunChatlive, we are joined by Adam Meakins ‘The Sports Physio‘ & Mike James ‘The Endurance Physio‘ to discuss the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, and reflect on what clinicians/patients/people should/could be doing with regards to minimising the impact & spread.

Though the next few months are full of much uncertainty, one thing we do know  will help reduce the impact of this virus is minimising unnecessary trips & social contact. But with news now of ever extending periods of self isolation, many businesses and of course therapists are very concerned about what the future holds.

One thing that is emerging from this crisis is the need for health care professionals therapists to strengthen and facilitate the provision of online consultation. In many cases, an web based meeting between therapist & patient can provide a valuable opportunity to advise what steps to take, e.g. appropriate modifications to training, rehabilitation exercises, lifestyle changes, etc. Also, important red flags that could highlight the need for immediate medical attention can be sought and hopefully dismissed if not identified.  

Here at RunChatLive, Matt Phillips has made himself available for online consulation on the popular Sports Injury Fix platform. If you are need of assessment for running related injury/pain (also for non-running issues), Matt will provide you with as much information & advice as possible to save you from having to visit a GP or therapist. Full details including availability & booking options HERE.

Interested in starting YOUR OWN Podcast?

Here’s two things we wish someone had told us when we started:


    Choosing a suitable host company to upload, store & distribute your podcast material will always depend on your individual circumstances & needs. That said, if you’re looking for a company to help your podcast grow, we recommend Podbean. Set up is super easy, as is transferring from a different host. Click HERE for details.
    After trying many ways to do both solo recordings and with guests, we wholeheartedly recommend you try Be.Live online software. It’s the best value, simple to use (for you AND your guest), and has some great tools to brand it as you want. Testing the software is FREE (no credit card recquired). Click HERE for full details.
