Everyone wants a magic pill or a quick fix. Patients come into our offices all the time hoping we can “fix them” and get them back to their activity the next day. Unfortunately, tissues need time to heal. And even though the rehab process has no arbitrary timeframes associated with it, our tissues do undergo a fairly predictable healing process. Inflammation, proliferation, repair, maturation. Tissues need to undergo regeneration at the cellular level and that takes time relative to the degree of injury. We cannot speed up our biology, but we can slow it down if we over stress the tissue during this time or return to activity too soon. Be patient, trust your therapist or clinician, and you will be on track to minimize the amount of time missed.

Split Stance MB Fake Chop
-
Fake medicine ball throws are a useful tool to improve reflexive core stability. The quick stopping motion forces your body to put the breaks on to prevent momentum from continuing in the direct of the chop. Extremely beneficial for athletes that need help generating proximal stiffness in a split stance position similar to the reciprocal pattern of running. There are multiple variations programmed to target specific strategies relevant to deceleration/change of direction made popular by @leetaft. As you can tell by the difference between my first and second rep, your body will quickly find a correct strategy to prevent losing balance.

Let's face we all can be a little stronger.There is no such thing as being too strong. It is our job to educate our clients the importance of strength training in order to be resilient and prepared for life.
-
Once we get our clients pain free, we need to load them and get them into proper movement patterns. The stronger they are, the better their quality of life will be.

Kettlebell Strict Press + Windmill
-
Healthy shoulder requires both mobility and stability. It also requires you to train in multiple planes of motion. Combining strict press into windmill challenges the motor control and stability of the joint. Be sure to hip hinge back when you're doing the windmill.

While it may be simple, the language of movement does not lie to the trained eye. We can cheat activities but we cannot cheat our ability to move. Compensation, deficiencies, and difficulty may all exist but the truth will come out with movement.

Half Kneeling Mace Chop
🔸
This is an awesome movement for core and shoulder complex. Using the mace which challenges the shoulder stability.
🔸
Also thank you to @team_exos for having me. This is an amazing learning opportunity.

Over-use injuries occur due to repeated stress that exceeds the physiological capabilities of a given tissue. Majority of the non-traumatic (and some traumatic) injuries we see in physical therapy can fall under this category. However, “over-use” is relative to the individual. What is easy for one person may be hard for another and what may be extremely difficult for another person may seem like a warm-up to another. Graded exposure allows you to monitor the patient’s response to gradual progression of stresses to prevent over-use or re-injury. On the flip side, relatively little stress may prove to be too much if applied to a tissue that is in a poor position to absorb it. For example, 20 pitches may not seem like a lot to a starting pitcher, but if that pitcher presents with limitation in shoulder flexion, poor trunk rotation, limited shoulder rotation (you get the point) then the same 20 pitches would be putting a greater undesired stress on his body. Do that enough times and eventually you find yourself on one of our tables. Don’t just judge volume based on arbitrary numbers like pith count, rep ranges or mileage. Take a case by case approach and decide if a given volume is too much for the individual in front of you.

1/2 Kneeling and Standing MB Shotput
-
The medball shotput throw is an excellent exercise to retrain or develop power with trunk rotation. 1/2 kneeling is an excellent variation to break down the movement to help your patient or athlete dissociate their trunk from their hips before progressing to standing. I’m standing, it is important to promote transfer of load from the rear leg to the front leg to transfer power from the lower extremities, through the upper extremities, through the ball towards the target. Great exercise for your baseball or softball players or any person who could benefit from rotational power.

Never forget

We would like thank those who sacrifice their lives to make this country save so that incident like 9/11 doesn't happen again.

Pre-Operation Physical Therapy
-
Often time we get our clients following their surgical procedures. In this post, we want to emphasize the benefits of pre op physical therapy.
-
Pre op PT can help restore ROM and strength prior to surgery which will improve future outcome. It can also give PTs opportunities to build rapport and with clients and education them on what they can expect post op. If you are about to get surgery be sure to seek out pre op PT first!

The person who claims to have “all the answers” doesn’t know a damn thing. Nothing is absolute, especially when it comes to rehab; no guarantees, no definitives. Someone who isn’t questioning and trying to figure out the answers isn’t doing it right.

Great repost from @functionalmvmt. Movement is movement. We as professionals need to do a better job at understanding when to use specific tools. The FMS was designed as a screening tool to allow for a common language; not to predict injury or sports performance. Movement is movement.
