5 Ways to Start Your Career in the Right Direction

This month’s Inner Circle webinar is on 5 Ways to Start Your Career in the Right Direction. In this presentation, I talk about some of the important things that any student or new physical therapist or strength coach should focus on early in their career.

This webinar will cover: 1) Why you shouldn’t sell your soul to one specific “system,” 2) The ONE most important thing you need to work on to be effective, 3) How to always be learning but also gaining skill, not just knowledge, 4) Why you shouldn’t rush into starting a private practice

ACL Reconstruction Rehabilitation Protocol

Rehabilitation following Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction (ACL) continues to be a exciting and popular topic in orthopedics and sports medicine. Just pick up any journal and you are bound to find at least one article on the ACL in each issue! Over the past decade, Kevin Wilk, James Andrews, and I have continuously adapted and expanded our preferred treatment guidelines following ACL reconstruction.
