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

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
