Interviews, stories and research all about radicular pain! By @thomas_jesson
Episode details

Thanks for reading the 25th edition of my sciatica newsletter. This newsletter tracks my research as I write a book about lumbar radicular pain!

This week I spoke to Kate Charlton again! When we spoke last year, she was recovering from her second bout of radicular pain, getting back into her training and everything was going well. Since then, Kate’s pain returned. She chose to have surgery and so far, her recovery is going really well.

In the podcast, we talk about:

  • Her decision to have surgery

  • Returning to training after surgery

  • Attitude and mindset

  • And much more!

And, after last week’s newsletter, it was interesting to hear that Kate’s cold foot recovered immediately after her operation!

This conversation, and our previous one, will be useful for any of your patients who have radicular pain and want to return to sport, especially if they train and compete at a high level.

That’s it for this week! With a deadline looming, I’ve got to get back to work!

Til next time,


P.S. Here are some photos of some mourning doves that have started visiting our balcony. I’ve given them some seeds.
