Does Subacromial Decompression Surgery Really Do Anything?

Subacromial decompression surgery is a very common procedure performed for people with shoulder pain. The procedure is often recommended for people with “impingement syndrome” and was originally theorized to open up the subacromial space and help reduce biomechanical impingement. But recent research has challenged the effectiveness of the procedure, and even the diagnosis of “subacromial impingement” itself.

In part 3 and 4, I wanted to break that down further, and share a bunch of clinical pearls from experience.

  • 3 Ways Baseball Pitchers Can Use a Radar Gun to Enhance Performance
    by Mike Reinold on April 16, 2019 at 10:00 am

    One of the simplest, yet most effective training aids for any baseball pitcher is a radar gun. At one point in time, I was actually against having youth baseball pitchers use a radar gun too often and focus on velocity, but I actually think that there are a few great benefits.  And with recent advances in technology of radar guns, people can easily get an affordable pocket-size radar run, like the Pocket Radar, to use at home. One of the key differentiators I see between amateur and professional baseball pitchers is often just intent. What I mean is, our pro ball pitchers tend to throw with much more intent than our younger pitchers.  Sure, this could be that pro ball pitchers are older, bigger, and stronger.  But intent isn't just an output of mass and strength.  It's also an output of intensity, which is something many youth need to learn. Even in our sports performance programs at Champion, our early focus with people new to training is developing intent when training. So while I don't necessarily want our amateur baseball pitchers focusing solely on velocity, I still think there are a bunch of great uses of a radar gun during training. Here are my top 3 ways baseball pitchers can use a radar gun to enhance performance.
