This is a conversation with Gavin Routledge, osteopath about the close relationship of pain with our lifestyle, and what we can do about it.
Gavin graduated in 1991 from the British School of Osteopathy as the Gold Medallist. He was a Vice Patron of his former college from 2005-2015. He has written 2 books on lower back pain, and completed a Masters Degree in The Clinical Management of Pain at The University of Edinburgh, during which he reviewed all 232 apps on the app store for lower back pain.
He then set about creating a digital solution for lower back pain, which you can find at backpainandsciatica.com. It includes a chatbot which triages and groups patients, and lots of free content, including the 5 star-rated Active X Backs podcast which is totally focused on the relief and prevention of lower back pain and sciatica – there are currently 78 episodes, most of which address specific questions patients have about lower back pain and sciatica.
In 2021 he launched Active X Health, a health coaching website and app which enables medical, health, and fitness professionals to coach patients to better health. Active X Health is grounded in the principles of lifestyle medicine.
