For as long as I’ve been a physio, 19 years and counting, my biggest pet peeve has been how many needlessly suffer because of misinformation. Years ago I ran a blog and really enjoyed sharing my thoughts and knowledge with the world. I still remember vividly how it was both exhilarating and terrifying the first time I published a post! With the click of a button my message was available on the vast internet for all to see…. and judge! I overcame that fear quickly as I realised that blogging is the ultimate tool for us health professionals to use to spread evidence-based information, and fight the good fight against misinformation. It is one of the most direct and appropriate ways for us to engage with the public.
