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?

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
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.
