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
Congrats to our girl @leahmcarter on her performance last weekend! She is always a pleasure to work with and an inspiration to us all on the mental toughness, commitment to the process, and self-driven habits that lead to success on and off the track! Congrats Leah! @nevadawolfpack with @get_repost ・・・ Congrats to @WolfPackTrack's Leah Carter, this week's Bradley, Drendel & Jeanney Student-Athlete of the Week! #BattleBorn #WeAreNEVADA
Walk the walk. Every day is a decision whether to stray from doing the hard work, to take the easy road and the quick fix or being consistent, making small changes over time and getting it done (especially) when you do not want to. Find a PT willing to work as hard on themselves, both physically and mentally as you are. That’s where the magic happens.

My man @vegan_ian working on some lifts yesterday. Complaint of low back pain with deadlifting that has been slowly getting worse. After we cleaned up some potential biomechanical contributors, i.e loss of hip internal rotation on one side, we broke down his lift. While these faults aren’t major this is also light weight so we expect them to become exaggerated as we progress the load. What we see here is that he never gets in neutral to initiate the lift and then like many lifters, loses the spine position at the end of the eccentric. If you don’t have any back pain with deadlifting, I might not be as picky but if you do, this is a likely/potential contributor. We worked on bracing and played with some set up options and we’re going to run some elevated lifts while the pain calms down then drop slowly back to the floor as his positioning improves. Nice work buddy! #powerlifting #deadlifts #barbellrehab @vegan_ian with @get_repost ・・・ Rehabbing a lower back injury from deadlifts. Time to take it down and figure out some issues I have. @nevpt
Sent our boy @engagemvmt off in style last night! We’re going to miss you bud but excited to see you keep building your dream! Can’t thank you enough for everything over the last couple years. Reno, if you need a great physical therapist and/or you’re a crossfit athlete, we highly encourage you to see Ray!Godspeed brother, once you’re in the NPT family, you’re in for life. Go get ‘em.

Shoulder/elbow pain when you bench??? This is why I’m an advocate of always filming your lifts. Power belly aside, I’ve had a nagging left shoulder for awhile now but I really don’t have any positive “special tests”. We see this all the time in athletes where you may have difficulty figuring out the “problem” and even more so if they are tested under light loads. Here, with 315 on the bar, I slowly lose wrist position on the left (peep the knuckles). As a compensation to the center of mass moving away from my most efficient position, i.e. directly over my forearm, my left elbow is forced away from the bar and increases demands on my shoulder to complete the lift. When working with athletes, remember sometimes (usually) the issue is technical inefficiency. Time to drop the weight and clean up the wrist. Happy Saturday friends! Hope this helps some of you. #barbellrehab #neverwronggettingstrong #benchpress #powerlifting #physicaltherapy @clinicalathlete
Working on a workshop on a worknight! Special thanks to those that came out to help us sharpen our new seminar series! We’ll announce dates to the public soon, stay tuned. @naomialbertson @pendolaproject
How can we not repost?? Reminds of one of my favorite PT quotes by Jorge Jevne “Our patients are not cars and we are not mechanics”. We are guides, coaches and movement experts. But it will always be the patient that needs to do the work to truly get better. Proud of this one for working so hard and trusting us!! 👊🏻💪🏻#Repost @accidental.triathlete ・・・ I know this video doesn’t look like much; and, trust me, in my head it wasn’t much, but in my hip, it was 6 months of rust build up that I finally had the opportunity to start shaking off. This was my first “run” out of the water since my hip surgery six months ago. It wasn’t far, it wasn’t fast, and I felt like an elephant with how heavy my feet were; but it was a RUN! 20 seconds of running/40 seconds of walking for 10 GLORIOUS minutes. Trust me, I felt it the next day. Not in a bad way, but it reminded me I’ve still got a very long way to go. ~~ I have to admit, after 6 months of consistent PT (2x/week), I had a sort of expectation that I’d be able to pick up closer to where I left off. That was a big fat NOPE! This was just another ‘beginning’ of sorts in this year long recovery. And I have vowed to give myself that full year with no running races, and I’m holding to it. Partly because I want to heal properly and hopefully avoid the same types of pain that started me on this journey; but MOSTLY because I have (sometimes unrealistically) high expectations of myself. I would be letting myself down if I didn’t feel ready to compete at or above the level I was when I had to stop competing. So, there you have it. I’m competitive. I’m driven. And, yes, I’m hard on myself. I’m a work in progress. Aren’t we all? ~~ #AccidentalTriathlete #thisisrecovery #recovery #physicaltherapy #pt #nevpt #swimbikerun #running #triathlete #triathlon #TBDracing #toughbydesign #thebestdamnracingteam #trichick #fitness #training #TriMe. ~~ PS: if you're in the market for an amazing PT - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jon Hodges @nevpt #thankyou ❤️
