Dr. Amy Atmore, DPT, CSCS  Helping athletes move better & prevent injury at @repair_sports_institute_oc USC Doctor of Physical Therapy Alumni✌🏽️

Single leg dead lifts with posterior tibialis activation using a theraband. Verbal cue to utilize the 1st MTP in securing the band. Simple yet effective exercise for functional strengthening of the arch of the foot. Executed perfectly by U.S. Figure Skater @eric.sjo ⛸✨😊

Phenomenal course yesterday on BFR (aka Blood Flow Restriction) by @owensrecoveryscience !! Lots of people were hype about what exactly this was. Brief summary below👇🏽
.
✅Blood flow restriction rehabilitation training is a remarkable type of therapy that was historically used to restore strength in severely wounded limbs in war veterans and return them to higher function. Pioneered by Johnny Owens PT it is now a game changer in the orthopedic and sports world to help those build strength without damaging tissues and joints. There is ongoing research on the numerous benefits and implications of this in the pre/post surgical populations, to prevent muscle atrophy and loss of strength from disuse and non weight bearing!
.
🧠BFR works by creating an anaerobic strength training environment without eliciting tissue damage. Utilizing a tourniquet device, arterial pressure is partially occluded while venous pressure is fully occluded, thereby inducing swelling and muscle synthesis pathways. The Delphi units used in this video calibrate the pressure before and during each exercise session to maintain a specific individualized occlusion pressure (this is key for the most effective and safe results). Observe how the numbers oscillate to adjust to pressure changes occurring during the entire exercise to maintain the occlusion pressure. This internal doppler is a unique feature on the Delphi units. .

👊🏽Thank you to Owens Recovery Science and @kylekimbrell on such a phenomenal, non-biased, evidence informed course on Blood Flow Restriction. Excited to become a certified provider in this technique to help more of my patients!

🔈sound on❗️Great example of how #ankleMobility can contribute to knee pain, and why it’s important to address!
...
Patient has a complex history of right knee injuries, multiple surgeries and failed rehab. After performing an initial evaluation we discovered a mobility issue in his ankles. We addressed this for 5 days along with specific corrective exercises and found a notable improvement in his ability to perform the functional step down test. As you can see in the first video, He struggles to tap his heel to the floor and compensates with a hip drop. This maneuver shuts off his right glutes and increases stress to his right knee. In the second video he gained more ankle mobility which allowed him to descend lower thereby reducing the amount of compensation through his hip (decreased drop). Functionally patient reported decreased right knee pain and improved control. This supports the importance of addressing ankle mobility in athletes with knee pain and to always observe global body mechanics in addition to performing a full clinical examination.
Thank you @azuko13 for letting me share this video to give insight on this important topic! 🙏🏽🏀 .

Shout out to probably the best PT I’ve ever worked with @thehowwithdrderhow ! I am grateful to have been able to grind alongside and learn from you these last couple years. Words can’t describe how hard this guy works in and out of the clinic to truly place his patients first, while still finding time to mentor and assist all those around him. If you have been lucky to get treated by him you know what I’m talking about. Thank you Dr. Der-How for all that you’ve done and continue to do in our community, for your endless support in my career, and being a great friend. Your @repair_sports_institute_oc family will miss working alongside you bro! Best wishes in this next chapter🙏🏾#thiswastheonlygoodpicicouldfind #gonebutneverforgotten #mvp #thehowwithdrderhow #dynamicduo #tbc

Emma is an elite ballerina who had a tough 2 years. Last year she rehabilitated from a torn ankle then just when she was getting ready to go back to dancing she sustained a traumatic injury to her head and neck from a car accident. Symptoms of headaches, dizziness and neck pain left her unable to dance again. Over the last 6 months she’s been working tirelessly at @repair_sports_institute_oc to overcome many challenges and regain full function. So priceless to see her back again doing what she loves! Ballet is such a difficult sport as it requires incredible dynamic balance, strength, control, stamina, equilibrium, power, and grace! Grateful to have been able to work with you @emmaeverts & congrats on your flawless performance in the nutcracker last night & first time returning back on stage in 2 years!✨

#SurferSquats to burn the 🍑🔥 for this surfer 🏄🏾‍♂️🌊 Heavy emphasis is on glute recruitment here with the front hip externally rotated + abducted. Glute activation has been shown through research to improve lower extremely biomechanics and decrease knee pain. This is much harder than it looks and Richard did such an excellent job holding for a full minute (video sped up) Tag a surfer who can benefit from this🤙🏾@repair_sports_institute_oc .

Kinesiology taping can be beneficial for an acute (fresh) knee injury by reducing swelling and altering pain perception. Techniques vary based on pain presentation and pathology. The technique shown here is from @koheducation for acute ACL, MCL, LCL and patellar tendon injuries. Kinesiology taping can also be a great transition between wearing a knee brace and nothing at all. At @repair_sports_institute_oc I like to use taping as an adjunct to manual therapy, movement re-education, corrective exercises, class IV laser, IASTM, and vasopneumatic compression. It’s important to note that taping is never a cure all, just a bandaid to assist! 🏐🏀🏈⚽️⚾️🎾

Every soccer player (and all athletes really) can benefit from #gluteprep !
__________
The #gluteprep routine primes the triplanar hip muscles which are necessary for everything below the kinetic chain to function optimally. Glute muscles play a critical role in improving foot stability, cutting, decelerating and landing while also aiding in the prevention of ACL and foot injury. You can access our full glute prep routine by going on @repair_sports_institute_oc YouTube page🔥⚽️

Showing off my best squat day so far; 4 reps @ 135 (90% of my 1RM), 1.2 times my body weight! Some may argue that my thighs are not reaching parallel. Although this is ideal, I am not able to do so without my trunk compensating at this time! Compensations may happen from inadequate stability or mobility along the kinetic chain. Quick tip to reduce injury and ensure a solid functioning system prior to loading; spend quality time warming up with dynamic full body stretches and activate your glutes, core, and shoulder stabilizers. Quality over quantity is always key. This took years to squat more than my body weight! Have to thank @beautiful_imperfection512 & @asideofbryce for being there every week with me to get it in!! 💪🏾🙏🏾 Thanks for the strength plans @squatoberofficial @penandpaperstrengthapp !
