About Us

Nelly Darbois, PT, MSc

Founder, Editor

nelly darbois kiné et rédactrice santé

Originally trained as a physiotherapist, I am now a freelance writer and consultant. I enjoy providing clear and well-researched answers to internet users’ questions. This inspired me to create this website, which is now visited by over 8,000 people daily. I also hand over the keyboard to individuals I meet along the way who, like me, have a passion for conveying useful and well-sourced information in writing!

albin guillaud kinésithérapeute, docteur en santé publique

As a French Physical therapist and Doctor in Public Health, I am committed to using my skills and expertise to serve as many people as possible. The only issue was that I lacked a bit of motivation, but fortunately, Nelly was there to help me overcome it! Managing pain, whether it’s temporary or chronic, is one of my favorite topics to address.

🕊️ Is Fonto Media an independent media?

It depends on what you mean by “independent,” but I would tend to answer no, and it’s intentional!

Most of people who write or contribute here have a vested interest in the subjects they address (in fact, that’s generally why they have expertise in the subject!). These interests could be financial, ideological, etc. When the interest is financial and direct, it is always mentioned in the article’s introduction under a section titled “Disclaimer.”

Furthermore, we usually take a stance and express our opinion on the subjects we discuss (when applicable), while carefully justifying our reasoning and allowing room for contradictory opinions to be expressed in the comments!

📤 Do you want to distribute or use content found here?

Absolutely! Just one condition: cite its source by providing a clickable link to the page where you found it. All the content authored by me (Nelly) on my site is under a free license (CC-BY-SA for the purists 😉).
