I love waking up with @simplywillb in my cup. Or my podcast queue. Nice work brother. So glad we formed a friendship over several dozen beers and copious amounts of bbq. Everyone should give this a listen. @dannymattapt
Great turnout for our Youth Specialization Workshop last night. @ezell.dakota covering all things related to keeping our young athletes healthy, reducing injury risk and creating the best environment possible for them to develop and thrive. If you’re a coach, parent, or work with young athletes, this is invaluable information. If you have a question or an athlete struggling with injuries, we offer free phone consults! Call and ask for Dakota today. 775-784-1999. #youthspecialization #injuryriskreduction #physicaltherapy
Cleaning my desk today and just took a minute to reflect on the kind words patients have shared about their experience here. Our job, as we see it, is to be a guide, a coach, and to help navigate the fear associated with injury. If we do our job right, our patients are empowered, independent, and feel they are in control of their care. Thank you for your kind words ladies! They mean a lot to us. #whywedowhatwedo
This isn’t a post about the #grind or how busy I am or whatever people post when they put in weird hours. It’s the opposite. Owning your own business sounds cool but you need to be ready to have your brain always running. Sometimes that means getting up and working when you know sleep is just not happening. Often, in my experience, it’s a painful reminder that things are out of balance. Sometimes that’s ok. Sometimes you need to shift a little and handle things when they arise. But for me, it’s a notice that I need a lake day with my family. Or a weekend in the woods. Or on my motorcycle soon. What’s the point of working so hard if you don’t live life too? And the importance of keeping mental health in check as well as physical cannot be overstated. Gonna work on these things. But for now, #allthecoffee
Oh you refracted photons hitting suspended water molecules at an ideal angle, you make the early mornings a little more enjoyable. I love Fridays not because the work week is done but because it let’s me finish my week on a high note. Rededicate myself to doing my best today, going into the weekend with pride and giving my patients a good experience. If you live for the weekends then you may not be doing life right. Happy Friday everyone. Go do your best!
If you’re not following @adammeakins then are you even social media-ing bro? Hilarious, topical, often scathing and most important, fighting the good fight.
Just starting my day with @michael.ray.dc Good job buddy. You didn’t yell at anyone. That was weird. Go give this a listen! Applicable to all of us defining our individual practices no matter your background. @austin_barbellmedicine @jordan_barbellmedicine
Free workshop THIS Thursday, June 28th at the University location! Ever wonder how to help your child be the best athlete they can be? Or how much is too much? And more importantly, how to minimize risk of serious injury to these young superstars? Join us for in-house lecture hosted by @ezell.dakota on all things youth sports related! Just DM me, comment or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot!
Quick little post about whiplash management. Often, anecdotally, this condition seems to become more of a chronic issue vs acute in many patients. With chronic pain, one of the key components is gradually desensitizing movements and allowing the nervous system to decrease its threat response to a stimulus. In this example, that might be upper trap loading. Here are two exercises we might give in the later phases of rehab to load the shoulder and neck complex as demonstrated by one of our rock star patients! #dogclickbait #whiplash #cervicalrehab
Sometimes you just want to lift something heavy. 500lb 4” block pulls. First time with 500lbs in my hands in over a year. This was rep 3 of 5 singles and there’s a few (several) technical mistakes. The most notable, to me, is the stutter step before initiating the pull. This suggests poor foot rooting and balance. I also have a bad habit of resetting my spine position twice (top and bottom) before pulling which again suggests poor bracing. The second is the bar path slightly shifting forward which, in combination of the above, allows a slight break in my spine position. Finally, rushed the eccentric. I know better. But overall, felt good, technical mistakes are small, and I’m happy with the lift. Progress not perfection. #ptswholift #powerlifting #deadlifts #barbellrehab #woof
Dogs make everything better! Especially 6:30 am Saturday sessions.
If you want to get daily (ok, weekly) videos on some of our most commonly prescribed exercises, make sure to like our facebook page. Awkward on-camera persona and Shannon Sharpe-esque public speaking skills are just an added bonus! Link in bio. Probably.
Good luck to our girl @krystapalmer as she competes on the World stage! #Repost @krystapalmer with @get_repost ・・・ Soaking in my last practice before leaving for World Cup 💫 See you soon Wuhan, China! 🇨🇳 #teamusa #comingforyou #worldcup @usa_diving
Mondays are a nice reminder that it’s a new week and time to get shit done. Always motivated to do good, build something you can be proud of, and continue to fight the good fight. Sometimes you need to stop and smell the flowers and sometimes you just need to eat them and get to work.
Too good not to repost. @physio_memes with @get_repost ・・・ So are there trigger points or nah??🧐 . Cred: @docmills.dpt
Simple external cueing to control medial rotation during an anti-rotary drill?? Frickin laser beams. You know the worst part of working with 11 year-old athletes?? They never get that joke. #sharkswithfrickinlaserbeams #ontheirheads #soccer
