Posted by NAIOMT on Apr 23, 2020 5:40:55 PM

This first episode in NAIOMT teaching faculty Steve Allen’s podcast series "You Think You Know: Conversations That Inspire” takes you on a journey with master clinician Erl Pettman. Listen as Erl recounts discovering the link between two very different, separate anatomical regions, and presenting the findings in his 1984 paper, “The Functional Shoulder Girdle.”

Erl also shares his experiences of growing up in postwar London, tells Steve what first brought him into physical therapy, and outlines how he ended up in North America and co-founding NAIOMT.
