Inner Circle Update

This month’s Inner Circle webinar is actually happening later today!  We will be talking about how I integrate science and evidence into exercise selection.  I love topics like this and feel that little tweaks to exercise can you make you look like a rock star.

Inner Circle members can head over to the dashboard to sign up for the webinar.  I’ll get a recording of the video posted ASAP afterward as well.  Click here to learn more and join the program. Update

There were a few new webinars added to this week!  We have a ton more coming too.  Here is what was new this week:

  • Part 2 of Kevin Wilk’s Current Concepts in ACL Rehabilitation covering several concepts of biomechanics, exercise, and neuromuscular training during the intermediate phase of rehabilitation from week 2 to week 10.
  • Peripheral Neuropathies by Dr. Mike Ellerbusch, who I have collaborated with in past EMG studies
  • Surgical Options for Knee Arthritis in Young Athletes by Dr. Lyle Cain.

And also working on a ton more webinars including kinesiology taping, integrating neuroscience, and more strength and fitness webinars.



Frontal Plane Stability Drill

Chris Johnson shows a nice video of a frontal plane stability drill he uses in runners.  I like the thought and emphasis on the stability of the leg on the ground and the core.  Notice how well Chris performs the exercise and doesn’t allow a hip hike o r



Cash Based Practice Advice 

Jarod Carter includes a nice video of his speech to a group of physical therapy students about cash-based practice.  Nice message and Q&A session.



How Long Should We Spend on Soft Tissue

Patrick Ward answers a question he received regarding how much time we should spend on soft tissue.  To summarize, as long as we need to produce the desired effect!  But how many times in a crazy outpatient setting do we get rushed?

    Thanks again for the plug here, Mike. And Chris, thank you for the kind words. You two are in a very small group of PT-related email newsletters that I’ll never unsubscribe from. Always great info, and I really appreciate it.

    Thanks Mike for taking an interest in this piece as well as sharing Patrick and Jarod’s work. I have a lot of respect for those guys and have been in communication with Jarod over the past couple years as we both have cash based practices. He is a sharp PT and is one of the few people that I trust when it comes to the business and legal implications of running this type of practice. Patrick, I hope that you enjoy the pacific Northwest as it’s a great part of the country. Keep up the great work!
