Ed Baker - Show Notes

In this episode, Ed and I explore how principles of Neuro-Rehab can be applied to non-rehab performance settings. Ed is currently a lecturer in Strength and Conditioning at the University of Gloucestershire after having previously worked with Wheelchair Rugby for the EIS and a Neuro-Rehab clinic.
