The best part about social media is that if you say something stupid, smart people will call you on your shit. Great post, Rich! Repost @pt_reviewer with @get_repost ・・・ This is shameful @rocktape. You’re better than this sorta nonsense. 🔵 1) Elseveir is a publisher and not a journal. 🔵 2) The page on your website where you send viewers to you “view this study” there isn’t even a link included. 🔵 3) I found the study (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0306987718302007?via%3Dihub) Which was published in “Medical Hypotheses” which is a journal that for 35 years of its existence didn’t include a peer review process. The current review process now still isn’t exactly clear. This is also the journal that included publications on AIDS denialism. This journal prides itself on publishing ridiculous and outlandish claims that wouldn’t hold up to the typical scrutiny found in most journals. 🔵 4) This study is so poorly conducted and poorly powered to make these claims it’s laughable. I’m honestly shocked that this got published save for the fact that it’s included in this bogus journal. There are seven total patients. There are no reports of baseline characteristics such as BMI or comorbid status. Their reporting of autonomic variables is woefully insufficient. 🔵 5) The authors of the study teach proprietary courses Ktaping which should raise some suspicions especially given how this paper basically reads like an advertisement. Fortunately, they disclosed it. 🔵 6) There are seven references for this pilot study two of which are what appear to be websites for K Taping. 🔵 I am all for novel claims but “this ain’t it chief”
Nice little Saturday smoking brisket and small batch beers. And debates, of course. @mderek4011
Despite the minimization of the multi-factorial aspects of injury, I don’t disagree with any of this, necessarily. I also don’t think walking in end-range inversion prevents ankle sprains but 🤷🏼♂️. I do, however, find the “in my opinion” after “science” bit...odd. Science doesn’t care about your opinion. That’s why it’s science. I wish these posts would start with “in my opinion” so I could stop reading them earlier. Anyway, happy Friday! #Needabeer
What does your PT clinic look like? Is it a gym? Is it a clinic? Yes. Changing your body takes hard work and time. Don’t waste either on suboptimal care. #physicaltherapy #barbellmedicine
Follow the link in our bio for our Ultimate (Randy Savage Voice) Shoulder Guide! This is my exact warm up for pressing days! Let us know what you think. And sorry for the swipe up, we’re not cool enough for that feature (yet). #crossfit #benchpress #powerlifting #rockclimbing
Even though I’m older and objectively better looking than @mderek4011 and @michael.ray.dc, I consider them both mentors and good friends. No two people have had a larger influence on our rehab model. If you’ve been dealing with pain that no one seems to understand and it’s keeping you from lifting, come see us. And congrats to @sarah.alkhayyal for finding some answers and getting her life back! #Repost @sarah.alkhayyal with @get_repost ・・・ THREE HUNNIT FAM 🌲 We made it! 300 for a huge post back pain PR. . 2.5 years ago, a 345lb axel deadlift in a Strongman show left me with severe and persistent back pain. (Swipe to see that deadlift!) What might have been an acute injury, had I been well-informed, turned into chronic pain that plagued me for nearly 2 years. . If you’ve been around for awhile, you know my story: I tried *everything*. PT, chiropractic, ART, bodybuilding style training, not training at all, McGill big 3– I did it all. . So what got me back to where I am, after 2 years of chronic back pain? The biopsychosocial approach to treatment. I absorbed information from article upon article upon book upon podcast about the complexity of pain and how psychological and social facets of your life factor into physical pain (pro tip: check the link in my bio for a collection of some of these resources). Approaching pain from a strictly biological/physical standpoint is not only scientifically outdated but also harmful. . How we talk about spines and about back pain needs to change. Step ☝🏽: Your back is resilient. Do not let a fearmonger lead you to believe otherwise. Step ✌🏽: Movement is medicine. Especially when it’s loaded movement, i.e. the barbell. If you have a doctor that tells you to stop squatting/deadlifting/[insert lift here] to heal your pain, be critical of their opinion. Hire @austin_barbellmedicine , @mderek4011 or @michael.ray.dc, or find someone in the @clinicalathlete network to see. . I’m stepping off my soapbox for today, but here’s another hooray for reaching this milestone! 💃🏽 And big thank you to @colin.lamberttt for always being the best hype man there is.
#fridayfeels This is a high compliment! Thank you guys for the love! #Repost @physionightout with @get_repost ・・・ The ACL Queen @stephallen.dpt talking about her favorite protocols and tools to help return to sport decision making in her presentation “The ACL Epidemic” @physionightout last Friday. . #Physionightout #physiotherapy #physicaltherapy #physio #aclrehab #aclphysio #aclpt #physiostudents #dpt #sportsrehab #sportsphysio #sportspt #sportsphysio #bostonpt #bostonptwellness #bostonphysicaltherapy #injuryprevention #aclriskreduction
Had a great meeting discussing research proposals, PT/PhD developments, the future of @nevpt and academic pursuits on Friday. Also, if you want to schedule a meeting with me, it’ll probably be at @revisionbrewing so choose the time of day wisely.
@greglehman Well that’s awesome. With @gabbetttim I’m amassing a small yet distinguished following. Where I mostly regurgitate their own teachings. Now if I could just lure @austin_barbellmedicine @jordan_barbellmedicine @adammeakins and @gregnuckols in... C’mon guys, if you’re looking for blatantly stolen content, awful jokes and pictures of dogs and beer (and sometimes physical therapy) look no further. #gottacatchemall
For all you mommas out there! @cristaann is our resident expert in post-partum rehab! Link in Bio for her newest blog post! #postpartum #pelvicfloorhealth
One of our favorite warm-up drills for pressing days. Maintain a braced torso, band is assistance, meaning it’s helping, not doing all the work! Extend arm as far back as you can, almost to the point of cramping, bend the elbow and reach as high as you can behind the back. Hold for a 2 count and repeat 10x ea side. DM me for our complete shoulder warm-up guide! #powerlifting #crossfit #shoulderwarmup
Handsome puppers are handsome. Productivity decreased this morning but we’re ok with that. #petallthedogs
Wooo! Proud of you @perrisbenegas ・・・ Wow, what an incredible weekend! I’m beyond stoked to take home 1st and win best trick at the last stop of the @vansbmxprocup in Malaga. Congrats to @terewilliamsrider 🥈, and @lara_lessmann 🥉. Everyone absolutely killed it. Thank you @vansjerry , @bmxdmc , @vansbmx66 for putting on an amazing event and @colinmackaybmx for the photos. Until next year! 🙌🏻🙏🏻🏁 #bmx #cultcrew #radthief #vansbmxprocup #malaga #spain
My first podcast. @drjewett07 was gentle. Two part special! Give it a listen @clinical_strength
75 years old. Parkinson’s. Difficulty getting up from the couch. Solutions offered: 1) medication. 2) A higher couch (lolwhut?) 3) sled pushes. My man chose right. True story: A physician said he doesn’t refer to us because we’re too aggressive. I guess he thinks not treating everyone over 60 as a china doll is too aggressive. #sledsovermeds @drjewett07 #Idontevenknowwhatachinadollis
💥Trigger Warning💥Repetitive lumbar flexion! True story: I used to tell people to never do sit ups. I read everything Stu McGill wrote and the man makes a pretty convincing case! I also use to have frosted tips a la Justin Timberlake in the late 90s (and maybe a little too long into the 2000s). We all have developmental phases that are embarrassing in hindsight. That was before I had a better grasp on workload management and the ability for the body to adapt to a stimulus over time. This is @krystapalmer who is a world class diver and an all around bad ass. Just a friendly reminder that there are no good or bad exercises, just exercises you are or are not adapted to execute. We need to stop instilling fear in patients and start empowering them. If your sport requires flexing your lumbar spine, forcefully and often, then flex away. #teamnonocebos
Gameday in the clinic. Go PACK!
Our unofficial slogan “It’s going to take consistency, longer than you think, you’re going to be responsible for doing the work and we will be your guide, not your mechanic.” But that’s not sexy. And makes for a shitty bumper sticker. But like in life, the easy, short cuts probably won’t get you the results you want. Proud of you @accidental.triathlete !!! #Repost @accidental.triathlete with @get_repost ・・・ My longest, continuous run since my #FAI surgery nearly a year ago. 30 whopping minutes! The IMPORTANT thing to note here is that I had ZERO pain! 🙌🏼 . And I think my #pt would be impressed at how patient I've been getting to this point. @nevpt this run's for you! 😉 . AND since I have the stage until someone cuts me off - I'll give a huge shout out to my kiddo/coach @c4triathlon who swears I'm his biggest success story. 🤗 . From #PE #survivor to surgery - he's always an integral part of my comeback! . #accidentaltriathlete #Triathlete #swimbikerun #Triathlon #running #ironmantraining #ironman #trichick #tri365 #humansoftriathlon #triathlon_in_the_world #rockthew #thisisrecovery #nailedit #fitness
