Performance Physical Therapy: Why Our Profession Needs to Progress

Physical therapy can span a wide spectrum, ranging from injury rehabilitation, to injury prevention, and even performance enhancement. To truly help people get the most out of their bodies, we need to focus on all three of those. But many of us don’t, and if you’re one of them, I think you may be really missing the boat. It’s not enough to simply try to restore someone to their previous baseline. That’s “traditional” physical therapy if you ask me. Performance physical therapy not only restores function, but also works on optimizing and enhancing performance. That’s the key difference to me.

    by Dan Blewett on September 3, 2019 at 10:00 am

    Ever watched a player melt down in front of your eyes, walking eight batters in a row, or making three consecutive errors in the field? Of course you have! More and more in today’s high-pressure, win-at-all-costs climate of amateur baseball, kids are being put in a position to fail, are not being taught how to handle high-pressure situations, or simply don’t play on their own enough to know how to adapt when the game changes around them.

This Week’s Stuff You Should Read From Around the Web


Changing Gymnastics Culture: It’s Time to Have Some Really Hard Conversations

My man Dave Tilley wants to have a hard conversation about gymnastics culture.  Dave has a brand new book available, and because he wants to help the sport so bad, it’s absolutely free.  I talk to Dave about this almost daily and I’m not sure anyone is more passionate about changing the sport.  But for Dave it’s more than that.  He actually articulated the changes the he proposes, heck that need to happen, so well that I’m going to be shocked if this book doesn’t have a huge impact.  Even if you aren’t into gymnastics, this book can be applied to many other sports as well.
