In Europe, at the New York technology where I even the curriculum, it’d be program, but also treat the NYC athlete. And my current interest include working with obviously the population with lower injuries and running related injury. Excellent. So how’d you guys meet anyway? I mean I know you know Elliott, you’re, you’re at shop Philly. Eric, you’re in New York. But have you guys cross paths was was it the same conference and picked up the others name tag because you both have the same last name or what? Yeah, it’s kind of a long story, but. I we unknowingly you know, kinda sorta cross paths, a long time in our in our in our lives together. But we, we did end up. We worked together at shop for a little while. And that’s really how he really got. No each other and work together, and kinda, formerly Egypt. So both of you guys have special interests in lower shrimp, the injuries Elliott working with pediatric and adolescent, sportsmed. Eric doing the same with some college athletes, and being a practicing as well. How did you guys decide to get together and do some research, and then we’ll get into what it was and where the audience can find it. Burqa started on the research paths together while we were together at shop. We did come out with a more retrospective analysis looking at the pediatric strengthen front-row, turn in the pediatric athlete, and then it kind of bird into a little more while, and I remember very closely when Elliott our standing next to each other at CSM, how long it was it remember that in California, I think, when whenever the Anaheim yeah, yeah.

05:15 – 10:04

Book that we has had this idea like, you know, we’re coming out with all these recognitions, but we really don’t know what it is that peaky are actually doing out there in terms of whites, specifically, a C L rehab returned to play return to sport return to life. Yeah. So when we were working together at shop, we do a lot of these functional and strength testing on patients that we weren’t really seeing. And when we were talking to them while they while they were coming in. You were getting again, gambit whole gambit as far as what they were doing regarding every in along with what kind of critique. Syrian that they’re, they’re practicing teachers were using this got us to thinking about, you know, yes, there are recommendations and guidelines out there, but is there that much variability out there in nickel practice? Gotcha. So you’re seeing what all the research was, and that’s what you’re doing at CSM, but you’re saying what’s actually being done, what where’s, where’s the translation? What’s the hand off from research and best practices to what’s actually being done with athletes? Yeah, I think yeah. And I think it also kind of reverse too, because we had that kinda unique experience at shop. Where are surging kind of require their patients to come the are there teams are to make sure they are functional testing program, where they the L part of that is, it’s great because we get interacted patient that we’re not treating on a day-to-day basis, we’re seeing at three months post op or six months and saying, all right. Tell me what you’re doing. And we hear from the patient’s perspective, are they are they following of, like, what we would consider to be best practice guidelines what have they done? Maybe prior to come. In and the patient, assessing aunts. And then, and then we give to CSM we hear what all this really great research is saying, man, we should be doing. We should be doing more. We shouldn’t do, and it’s like, but, you know, the, the patients that we have coming in from outside, our walls, or maybe not even doing happened that too. So it’s like, you know, it really spurred that idea what, what happened was the general practitioner that seeing, you know, maybe mostly maybe low back pain, or older patients when they get kind of SEAL that walkner door, you know, that they may not be a specialist in these the what is what does that person doing to make decisions about returns person, the play I like how it was formulated, organically, guys standing there together at, at CSM and saying, hey, what about this? Why don’t we take a look at the cool part was you guys went and follow through, and you wind up doing it. So, so talk about what happened next after that moment, when you actually follow through, we kind of formulated the idea, and we brought together, what we’ve dealt with a really good team, people with orthopedic surgeons that we work with here at job, and in PT’s, and we kinda got the, the survey. Of what we wanted to the question that we wanted to ask formulated together. And then we thought, hey, great idea, not only look at what therapists are doing. But on the other side, we look at the PD surgeon, they’re doing as well. So he came up with this idea of maybe the three sixty degrees, scope of people that are involved in, in these rehab decision, seeing what if kind of the Philip how to be in the orthopedic surgeons are kind of the overall directors, they’re the ones that are delivering the protocols for their patients. And, you know, saying this is what should be done. You know, we should see what they think about package patterns TT’s, or the one we’re in the trenches were the ones that actually were applying testing. But we feel should be best. You know what is what the P T say we wanted to kind of see what are both sides would say. And then maybe the compare contrast and draw conclusions from that. Unlike the more like a time line and being able to see again, what’s, what’s best practice. That’s great. But what’s actually being done on both ends in terms of the orthopedic surgeons and then the follow through with the, the physical therapists after? The surgery. So, so how’d you guys approach it and, and what you guys fine. Let’s get into the nitty gritty yet for one of the biggest things that we found was that there was a large variability, not physical therapist, but also with the orthopedic surgeon, and I think it really probably under floors, or underestimates, the ability out there, because the sample that we took from was the sports section with exception in private practice section, or what formerly known as those sections, I should say with their new name changes. But it’s a pretty, if you think about it a homogeneous sample of people, you would think that would be in the know of the current landscape of the literature, who would probably under floors, or under made the, the true, very villi out there similarly that we, we found even more variety in the orthopedic population, certain population, and that was the sample of pediatric orthopedic surgeon from the research and sports medicine group prison. Group, once again, a very homogeneous sample that tends to be a little bit more up to date with their with their current recommendation. So we, we were, we were quite quick deprived prize, the degree of Billy that we found, so, so I just want to stop you there to make sure I understand what you’re saying, and make sure the audience gets it too.

10:04 – 15:09

So you’re saying this groups free homogeneous you figured it, would they be more well informed because these are the people who go out of their way to not only be members but to be section or academy members and seek out the research, so they should have been sticking to or at least be closer to the best practice guidelines that have been put forth so far. But you saw variability, which you’re saying really really, really highlights how much variability was out there that you couldn’t even reach at xactly yet. Okay. I just didn’t wanna make sure I, I want to make sure I understood that. So it’s okay that is that is pretty telling what were some of the results you want to get into some of the some of the highlights. And some of the things that you guys found that maybe surprise you or didn’t surprise you. If you think about the decision. Making profits or what you’re the tools. You’re using from, from time based parameters to some type of strength criteria to some type of stumps performance measure to maybe some type of patient outcome measure or psychological attachment or contract dry. I mean, the variation existed across all of those, but even some of the more kind of would you consider maybe more concrete things like time we’re not even agreeing on time when the progress patience right now and you think that there’s probably the better most amount of research looking to support like those simple those, those type of concrete things. But we can’t even agree. And then when you start drilling down into the details about well, are reassessing strength and a lot of everybody agreed like. Yeah. Strength is important. But then we asked, how are you assessing strength that then variability just started from there? Right. And some people there was a large proportion of the sample PT’s that, you know, just relied on manual muscle testing to progress their patients and kind of what the literature showing is that, you know, we’re not going to be able to. Identify these higher levels of gases. Pete that may exist for these patients, when they’re strong but they’re just not strong enough using now montage, tonight’s lesion. But then when people are using either more objective measures, like handle their no mama tree. Or there’s availability rice the testing the standard that which they’re holding them to the variability just continues to progress where some people required seventy five percent. Maybe limbs imaging index and some people were maybe above one hundred percent. It’s there’s just, you know, the organizer surprised they as we drill down. You know, the win the details of what we’re doing and everyday practice, we can agree on broad strokes. We can agree that strengthening important, the man when you start like measuring strength like how you’re actually applying and doing that. That’s really different from everybody. Do you see in the framework is there? But how you actually apply and actually measure things like time or strength, which everyone pretty much agrees on being important factors to take into consideration when you start. Looking even smaller there. That’s where you see even more the very variability come into play. Yeah. Yeah. Eric, what do you want more like the devil? That was in the house a little bit like he talked to finishing tonight and nobody’s gonna argue that strength that meet strength. This is not going to be important. But I think once you start to, to hammer down on to power, they testing or something the strength of, of, of their patients. Are you really comparing apples to apples when when you start to go across different clinics, clinician and patients? And I think it really does create a little bit confusion, not just in the PT population in the clinic population. But Auckland patients to talk with one another, when they’re like, oh, yeah. I think cleared how they took your or yeah, they, they hooked me up to this machine four times. And, and I have to get at least ninety cent and the other person’s like oh, I’ve never done that before. And they’re back on the field plan already. I think it really does create a little bit of confusion within the society as well as are we really treating the same patients across different clinicians in clinic. And practitioners in the same profession. You know, right. That’s and that’s a great example of when you get to patients together, and they say, oh, we have the same injury, we must have done the same type of rehab, or at least hit these big big benchmarks. And when they’re different that’s confusing. And again, I get it, you know, patients are different from patient to patient. But if this is what best practices are, how come there’s so much variability? What were you able to hone in and either measure and ask, or at least if not speculate? Why is it? Why, why do we take it upon ourselves to, to have so much variability within the PT arm of the survey that we thought he’d be able to get one of those details? We, we tried to look at commision doctor that maybe influenced some of their him their decision that the us. So we had we kind of broke people down into, like either, high volume or low volume practitioners, where we said, anybody that treated more than ten miles per year. We accounted for them at high volume. Actitities and those less than that were low volume. We looked at certified specialists versus not certified specialists. And we don’t think years of clinical experience, and you know, if we if we use, we don’t know what that program is or, you know, like like you said, a few times we have our current, you know, Beth standard that we have our practice standard.

15:09 – 20:08

But we know if those are ideal hopefully change as we continue to learn more. But if we lived up to characteristics of the clinicians relative to the decision, they were making it seem like certified specialists were more likely to follow either which beat, of course, board certified specialists more likely to follow those kind of current practice guideline, and also those clinicians that were that were into our high volume clinicians seem to kind of follow more those best practice standards. So jor Beth is kind of what we’ve only result is that meeting. Those conditions are maybe more tied into the current literature or maybe by into the current literature more maybe see the investment in their practice going out. Of the way there, that’s a self selected group, which we started talking about the top of the show. These are people who say when your SAS, or when you’re seeing high volume, I’m I better, I better be doing the best because I’m practices wise because I’m seeing so many of these types of patients, these specific type of patients each and every year variability in terms of testing, I could imagine sometimes would have to do with ability of Quebec. Right. Each practice setting is going to be different. Yeah, definitely. And I think Becky him about a up in some of our speculation that people that had can be high volume a, you know, probably see the investment in an economic Donna, Mamata, or even like a handheld on a monitor roof with someone who may maybe in a facility where they’re not being as many of those types of patients may not be willing to invest in something because there’s no cost benefit for them or return on their investment in the long term. And obviously, there are other financial issues that you come across. Basis issues potentially. So I think there’s a lot of confounding issues that could arrive that can reason why someone is not using this type of instrumentation where can work in the audience, find this and, and download and kind of consumer themselves want to make sure they get access to it. Yes. The PTA survey published in jail at BT in October issue. Twenty eighteen and me surge in order big surgeon arm of the study was just published last month on in the orthopedic journalist sports medicine, Zingo them, and you can download that, that’s a full tech there, you can download full text there. No problem. What, what was the what was some of the attitudes of people who participated in this after the, the results will reveal work were they shocked were they surprised to were they, you know, pledging to, to change their practice because they saw such variability or anything come out of that, you know, I don’t think it was that surprising. I think I think disturbing survey kinda showed what everybody coming, Verdy thought. Victor knew existed that there’s variation out there and everyone’s like, wow, I, I knew it was variable. But I didn’t think it was very -able. You know what I think that was kind of, like just reinforced them the some of the thoughts, we did get a couple of emails from people like saying, hey, this is this is really nice really enjoyed remiss kinda good study, but I don’t know air and different Binyamin that no you know what it was interesting. I think you’ve gotta lar- a lot of publicity on social media platforms almost like the like a shock value of you need to do better. You know, by no means do I think you are. Is it is it bulletproof is it the best thing out there? Is it catching all people who may be at risk? But, but at least it’s the best we have at this point. But it seems if people aren’t even doing that at this point. So how could we really say that it’s not doing what it claims to be doing? If people aren’t there aren’t really doing it. So I think it, it really gained some headway on, on the media platform of saying, hey guys, let’s do a little bit better out there. I like that good. Take a quick break want to thank our sponsors are east medical staffing for keeping the show on the air. They find jobs, whether you’re gonna do so Adelphia or Long Island or anywhere you want to do a beach a lake. He wanna go mountains. He want to ski you can do that. That’s the cool part of variability in our in our profession is people need PT all over. So go do what you want where you want to do it. And Arias get you set up a U, R, E US, medical dot com. Not only just having the positions. But as well as being with a walkie through all the pain points. What do I do if I’m licensed in New York? But I want to go work in California for a couple of months they’ve got people on board to help you walk you through that. So you’re not on your own housing. How do you find where to live and is the person that use hiring you? They pay for that. They’ve got someone to walk you through that as well. The thing that could knit freaked me out the most was taxes. If you live in New York, but you’re temporarily working in Colorado. What do you do again? Arias has someone for that as well. So check them out, if you want to do a short term placement or look into relocate long-term, a U, R, E US medical dot com. Where, where would you guys go if you could go anywhere in the fifty states, if you do exactly what you wanna do what state, haven’t you been to that? You would give shot for thirteen weeks.

20:09 – 25:05

What bait haven’t I been to? Well, I was thinking more of that. I have been to Florida gator, we go down to Pensacola Beach, Florida every odd year for a week, and that is one of my favorite places in the United States. But opera played the haven’t been to having not ally. They had not been there, I would probably pick some somewhere in the mountain bikers aggo could Pacific northwest. Well at school party where the fifty states check him out. You are US medical dot com. Extent stay tuned. The we’ll be right back to the P T on cast. If you look at for education passed your physical therapy degree, look no further than Brooks. H L, Brooks rehabilitation institute of higher learning you could find out more Brooks, I h l dot org continuing education along with residencies and fellowships residencies in Orthopaedics, geriatrics, women’s health, neurologic PT, pediatrics, sports, and fellowship opportunity as well. So look into it if you’re looking to expand your knowledge base Brooks, IHL dot org to the typecast with Jimmy MacKay question. How was the how are the views or how was the reaction you guys mentioned, some kind of shock value on on social media saying, hey, come almost a rallying cry. But we, we need to do better. Let’s do better. Was there any reaction from the orthopedic surgeons since they’re the kind of the first touch point in the patient, and then they pass them off to us betcha they expect us to be doing best practices? What was their reaction to the results? I haven’t seen much reaction to the there’s a lot more talk about it and probably considerable Eric. And I of fly in within the realm when we did present it that at conference. We got a lot of really good feedback. We actually won best paper award at the prison conference the year, we did present this at that conference. I think there was there was a lot of kind of good Baillieu in, in the in the paper and the topics. And you know, we’re hoping that maybe it’s going to help drive Johnston change where beating side and change things around to so, so, so alternately. I guess the question to ask, is how do we do better? You know, we have these academies, now we specialize, we have best practices is there anything that you would that you, if you could make may wave. Magic wand that you put into play. How can we do better? I did a residency at the. I did a residency at the at the university of Delaware did for threatens there under the guidance of insider macadear who’s been acute advocate for the tests. You know, you need to test the folk and there’s been research out there that said, don’t, don’t need an kind of garner monitor to assess quad strikes you all you need is in the extension, machine that every clinic was throwing out a few years back and now the starting to get them out of the trash. So I think it comes down to, you know what take the time out. It’s worth your while for the information that you get just to do repetition, maximum testing if that’s all you have is you have a handheld item ometer, you use both types of testing, but I think it’s taking the time out and maybe sacrificing other parts of your of your treatment to really get the data that you need to make educated decisions. And that’s a valuable thing, right? Giving up some time. But if if, if what you’re presenting his is correct, which we, we would assume that would be since its best practices that time is well, spent, we’ll we’re going to say sorry to cut you off yet. I agree. I think engage in this conversation is actually helpful in getting some of the some of that social media. No on your your, your show. You’ve talked about kind of lag time between evidence to trickle down everyday practice. And I think that the social media conversations really helpful with and they can push us that people probably wouldn’t have picked up the paper or read it beforehand. And there’s there’s so much stuff about about ACL coming out. I mean I mean hundreds of papers every year to try and I get that. But I think trying to just these maybe maybe helped reinforce some of this, you know, the current standard that we think are the best to try to help, you know, get that out to general practitioners that don’t specialize an easy else, but probably Seeven majority of easy L patients because they make up the majority of the general practices that are out there, and maybe helping to adopt you know, the doctor and the guidelines that are that are being put forward. We’ll look at Alex, look the positive at least there are best practices, right? And we’re pushing we’re pushing up professor. Towards finding out what is best that’s great. That’s a great problem to have is. How do we know? How are we going to disseminate that and make sure it gets put into play? At least we got that first part least, we’re really, really paying attention to the first part. Now, if we as you just mentioned, continue to have those conversations, maybe hopefully it’ll help that second part with this emanation last thing. I wanted to ask Eric, you’ve got a unique situation in terms of, of working with students any strategies to encourage students and new clinicians to adopting best practices, and making the change in current practice patterns, to hopefully as they progress in their careers continue that and then teach other students to change the profession.

25:05 – 30:18

Yeah. You know, I had as a an instructor in professor at this point, I tend to utilize a lot of media and podcasts, some of your own actually and other types of logs and things like that after screen through them with my Hyun because I feel like it’s very powerful to hear it from the door at both. So more. Digestible for them than reading the text books. Hearing me talk about it up there. So I utilize that empowers them to get engaged in conversation with the people who are actually putting out literature, and the people who do have experience aside from hearing it from myself as a sage on the stage. I also my mantra to the students are you know they need to be the change in practice. They need to be that, that, that catalyst in the clinic, don’t go into finicky the things that the clinic is doing if they’re things that you don’t necessarily jive with he that change. Bring the new culture two who’ve been out there who, who may not know what, what is new in the research realm. So I, I really encountered them to be that catalyst that change of the profession, taking it from out of the academic side of things into clinical practice love it. Be the change. Right. It’s not gonna change unless you take what you exactly what it is take what you learn in school, and your clinical rotations and actually, start to do it love that last. Part of the show is the parting shot. It is the parting shot. The Portland shot is brought to you by rock tape more than just the tape company. Rock tape is a movement company, tools and education for medical professionals, if you look at it help, your patients, go stronger longer. Checkout rock tape dot com. You guys have an opportunity to leave one one sentiment with the audience before you go who wants to go first with their partying shop Erica, you kick it off that. All right. So, I guess my parting dot would probably be addictive. Festive, we could do with younger. Patients is its neck with them understand that they’re not an eight the pair, their person who had an affair, and in dealing with kids and dealing with adults. You know you need to manage each person’s differently by using the evidence as your guide, but understanding that you need to tell about intimate independence to the person. And if you could just connect with that person, you’re, you’re, you’re gonna make that person better, regardless of, of. What you do as long as you’re you’re, you’re letting Evan guide you love at Elliot. You’re up and parting shot when he got I think just making sure you continue to grow as a clinician, you know, I think seeing a lot of as the ovation in unfortunately thing, a lot of them hail or have re injury or or secondary injury has has driven me to want to get better. You know. And I think just kind of continuing to grow as condition, and, and, and use those, those events or in that let learning to, to better yourself for the next person around is, is an important thing love that before we go. I’m just you. You’re prescribing podcast episodes, as homework or is outside learning to students love to hear that. I am. I and actually I get made fun of by my other faculty members because of it. But obviously, I listen to a lot of them my forehand. I don’t just give it to them, but I feel like it’s a lot more digestible for them. They can do it while they’re driving into school. They could do it while they’re working out. So. They can work it into their, their everyday life. And it also brings them. They stumble upon other things within that podcast. And it’s more student directed learning after that because they’re like, oh, I listen to this on certain podcast. And then I saw another episode that I was in it really interests me. So it starts to get them on that self directed learning which which is so important for when they do graduate is, how do they, you know, now the information coming to them, they have to go out and seek it? So it teaches them that new skill. You know, selfishly a love to hear that because I host a couple of different podcasts. But I like it because as the as the guy with a degree in communications you’re talking or you’re trying to facilitate a conversation, the way your audience listens. And you’re listening the way your audience talks, and that’s a way to facilitate great conversation instead of what you mentioned earlier being the sage on the stage. That’s a presentation. Right. Some people do learn really well from presentation myself, I’m a conversation guy, obviously. So, you know, selfishly hey, love love to hear that. You’re prescribing assigning podcast episodes, maybe one or two for my show to students, but just love the fact that you’re open to and Anna do want to highlight you mentioned it twice that you do screen through that. Anybody with a microphone create a podcast super easy. But I love the fact that you’re screening it and highlighting. Hey, pay attention to this, and they do after that, if they trip across an episode that hasn’t been screened they need to take that upon themselves because there’s a lot of information in less than great information out there to. Absolutely. I think that’s the most important thing. Is that you’re, you’re, you’re really screening through it to make sure because there’s a lot of stuff out there, that, that maybe you doesn’t really job with the intentions of, of what you want them to get to learn and last point, I’ll make love that too, because once they graduate, they don’t have a professor down the hall or they aren’t running into someone each and every week.

30:19 – 32:32

We’re having that information brought to them, they need to start to seek it out. And think, you know, handing over day of a blog to read or. Podcast, listen to or video channel follow. That’s a great digestible way as we mentioned before, of getting information. Once you start working forty hours a week when you graduate gentlemen, want to say thanks very much for your time. Don’t think it will be the last one. We have you guys on the show, but etc. Service episode with everybody.

We got to town before had ourselves a PT pub night decided to bring the microphone to the bar. And we asked students from schools all across North Carolina. The same three questions to get some insight into what students are thinking before they go on a clinical Felicien three questions were what's one thing. They're going to do to prepare for clinical affiliation. What's one thing that they're really really looking forward to and one thing that they're really scared about goal is to get some students inside about each other. And maybe some CI's out there to learn what's going on inside the head of those students before they get to clinic. The first round is brought to you by Owens recovery. Science a single source for PT looking for certification in personalized blood flow, restriction, rehabilitation training and the equipment. You need. Need to apply.

May I introduce you? Here's your host, physical therapist, Jimmy MacKay. Night at the North Carolina student conclave, we are in Elon North Carolina just damage free for Milan university at the PTO PubMed the night before the conclave start students rolling in right now as you can tell in the background lot of lot of pints and a lot of conversations about PT and the stuff they love and hate about PT school and one of those things that comes up doing your clinical billion. So we're gonna ask the same three questions to all the students tonight. What are you most looking forward to what are you most afraid of and how will you prepare for your clinical Viliame the goal being students will learn from each other. Maybe some CI's will learn about some insight in terms of what students are thinking before they come to them and clinic so four hundred affiliation. What's the most important thing that you'll do to prepare yourself on whatever you're about to go into like Ortho? I try to rush up on my skills. No your limits. I don't know what I don't know. I don't know what I don't know. Look it up if it's. Easy figure it out. It is not easy. Ask for your CI practice. How I wanna talk to. I think the most important thing is connecting with the patient like one on one and knowing them more than their prognosis in her diagnosis. I wouldn't know who they are. And I wanna remember that forever. Well of that people I in communication, which is close to my heart that not only shadow a person that you respect their mindset about how to treat patients, and then try to form how you're going to interact and actually set up a plan before you go is the most important thing, I do is review topics and interact with my patients so kind of being able to get permanent full tank instead of an empty tank. But we'll take it practice with some classmates and just get more comfortable comparable with being hands on you have to be a PT. If you're not in the wrong profession, I think it would be to get used to whatever patient population. That affiliation. Sees you. Gotta know the population before you get there. You're also just not knowing what you're doing and getting in there and thinking, you're CIA is gonna want you to do something that you can't do and you're gonna feel bad about it. They won't do that. I promise. No. They won't. No, not at all like looking over old notes and stuff like that, maybe reaching out to professors and things things like that. Just kind of getting a feel for how environments going look practice. My manual therapy on my classmates, so after class on the weekends. We go in hang out in the classroom, and we practice on each other different techniques... What are PT students ACTUALLY thinking about clinic? LIVE from NC Student Conclave! We asked PT students @ the NC State Student Conclave THREE questions. What is ONE thing they do to prepare before a clinical affiliation? What is ONE thing they're AFRAID of before going to clinic? And What's ONE thing they are EXCITED about before clinic?<br /> <br /> The answers... might surprise you!

Welcome to the program. Hey, jamie. Thanks for having me. I really we were almost classmate applied to Nazareth college. We were talking just before we hit the record button. I went to undergrad in western New York, and you went to Nazareth, which anybody knows in Rochester. And I got accepted to Nazereth, and it was all set to go there. And I was psyched there's nothing against neither death loved it. I just wanted to be a little bit closer to family and friends. So I took a different route. But we were almost classmates you graduated Nazar in what seventeen can be useful in seventeen. So we were this close from Ardy known each other, drew. Mall world small missing good opportunity. But and I know Fiji. Well, yeah. All right. So let's go into your store. We had a couple of our listeners reach out and say, hey, check, this guy out they wanted to find out some more about us. So they they kind of gave me a little bit of your back story did your bachelor of science Nazereth and Rochester, along with your DP, but outside of being a physical therapist, drew. You do something a little bit uncommon, and your professional athlete talk about that a little bit. Let the audience know. Yeah. So I'm playing across and it was in fifth grade played played other sports wrestled played hockey and the whole life, and I was in high school getting ready to be recruited and doing that whole Email coaches, try to go into college and end up going to address which, you know, found out at a p t program, and that's kinda how I got involved through that room, and as I was going through school. I just kept play in my artists. And then eventually, you know, one of my teammates at the time goes once you sign up for a draft. And I never. Thought that some d three small school d three guy would you know, make it and the L and then eventually I got picked up in like a waiver wire sort of situation and a couple games into my first season. I ended up getting a start and and their amps I've been playing ever since being a little modest mean you're in the all star game as well. Yeah. Yeah. That was two years ago.

Broadcasting physical therapists around the world is this is the PT past. May I introduce to introduce you. Here's your host physical therapist Jimmy MacKay back on the show, host of the podcast and founder of athletes potential in Atlanta and Decatur Georgia. Adel comeback show, ma'am. Yes. Jimmy. Thank you so much for having me on again it easily my favorite podcast to be on good job of like interviewing people and just so like team listen to south you, and it's also cool. I don't know if I have a record in anything else. But when I told my I'm gonna tell my wife about this. And I she's gonna find me more tractive. Honestly, that's what I bring table. You bring that. Mabel up here. More attractive, but we gotta add something else to your resume. I mean, we should also let people know you do business coaching specifically within the world of physical therapy. But now, author I'll be honest, Pat myself on the back when I read a book, and you went out, and you wrote a book. Yeah. For somebody that also I have probably about fifty books that I'm halfway through have way through media. And I told my wife I was like, but if you add up the fifty percent of all of them, I'm through twenty five. Good. That's pretty good. Yeah. It's pretty solid. I just quick to kind of move on to something else. So the fact that actually sat down and for eight months put together my thought process on what I've learned in business. So for in particular in the cash practice realm is an interesting to me that actually you know, was able to finish it. But also, it's it's something that I think that will be there and my kids can pick it up and not granted the titles of extreme. But they're no they're no strangers to f word in the house, by the way, they they can use it in context, and they're five and seven I mean, they can read and they can see like, oh, man. Mom and dad like, wow, they did this thing. And you know, they started this business. And I kinda talk about how I got started. I have kind of like an interesting story about how we left the military and went into business that we knew nothing about and some of the mistakes we made along the way which is a lot and hopefully people can learn from that. And then we really dive into stages of a cash practice, which I think are important in. No because I look at like martial arts. You know, you don't just go one day and say, okay, I'm just going to get a black belt. You may think that, but you know, you go and you. For a while. And then you get a blue belt, and you get a purple belt. And then you have these stages along the way this show that you're improving your learning new things, and you should celebrate those. So for me, I thought it was important to define the stage of cash practice, then to go through the two main kind of linchpins that ... F*CK INSURANCE! A book by Danny Matta Danny Matta is a PT, host of the PT Entrepreneur podcast and clinic owner. He gets to add author to his title with a new book called, "F*CK Insurance". We talk why he wrote it and what you'll be able to get out of it, plus we'll give away a book and a 1-hour phone call with Danny so you can say F*CK Insurance too! Jimmy McKay, PT, DPT yes 29:52 Do you want to know the truth? With Erik Meira https://www.ptpintcast.com/2019/03/14/do-you-want-to-know-the-truth-with-erik-meira/ Thu, 14 Mar 2019 19:26:38 +0000 https://www.ptpintcast.com/?p=5375 Transcript Do you wanna know the truth or do you want to have been right? And the best way to do. That is to continuously ask yourself what other explanations, you could find for anything that you believe how else could you see the world or see a particular thing that that you're witnessing. You know, whether it's in the clinic, and you're watching the the results of an intervention. How are all the ways you can explain those results and be as crazy as you want? I mean, the whole idea there is, you know, it's okay to be thinking and just to be throwing ideas out because a lot of times, you'll some across something that all of a sudden that actually is more likely, and that would change the way I would use this intervention. Keep things thinking. No stranger to show as guest today is Eric Mera. Eric was one of our very first guest. When we started this crazy show back in two thousand fifteen. He's also got his own show called PT inquest. We talk about that what goes into us programming than the pitfalls of that. And some different ways to to look at things that you probably look at a lot. That's I think what Eric's best at is highlighting those things and letting you see things differently. He he's great at that show's brought to you by Owens recovery. Science can't say enough about Johnny Owens and his team. They're just a great organization if you're looking to get certified and personalized blood flow restriction rehabilitation training. Plus, they they have the equipment you need to apply that plus what they also have for free is the research. They're the guys doing the research on this. They're leading the field all around the world. So check out what they have going on at Owens recovery. Science dot com. Broadcasting to physical therapists around the world is this is the PT pine cast. May I introduce me to introduce you to here's your host, physical therapist, Jimmy MacKay. Best conversations happen at happy hour. Welcome two hours. No stranger to the program. Back on the show is Eric Mera. Eric thanks for coming back, man. Hey, thanks for having me back. I always enjoy chatting with you Jimmy and just for the audience's knowledge because we're we did this yesterday and failed computer messed up and didn't record the conversation full. So I was like man we had such a great conversation. That was a great driver on. Let's do it again. So for the audience take two, it's okay. I don't I don't remember many conversations. I have anyway. So yeah, we wanted to want to bring you on. If anybody doesn't know Eric in his work. He's got his own podcast called P T inquest. You can find that wherever podcasts are sold. And by Seoul. We mean giving away for free, which is itchy and you're on Spotify. We found out. That's right. Yeah. When we try to record this the first time, you're asking me about and I was like, I don't think I'm on Spotify. But yeah, I've actually been on Spotify. For awhile apparent when people find that you have podcast for me to like. Okay. Cool. Your dork. What's your show about that was kind of like ask? When people ask you about PT inquest. What are you? What do you tell? Oh, ours is a very specific show. I do it with j w Matheson, it's a I like to describe it as a online journal club. So we get an article we the the two of us up over Skype, and we just talk about the article what it says what it doesn't say. You know, Jay w I h have over twenty years of experience as cynical therapists. And we've always been pretty tight with the with research in general and studying research, and so just having that that background of seeing a lot of papers for a couple of decades. Now, we can really give a lot of insight into into what emerging research is trying to accomplish. And how it how it kind of is interpreted in the context of previous research while you're like the guy from the matrix in the beginning when Neil I wakes up. He sees the screen, and it's all ones and zeroes. Do you want to know the truth? With Erik Meira Erik Meira of PT Inquest dropped by to talk about truth. Well, that and other stuff. We looked into programming a conference like CSM, starting a SIG on your own and how other professions approach science that we can learn from. Jimmy McKay, PT, DPT yes 25:18 The Great Now What?!

PT + Climate Change?! https://www.ptpintcast.com/2019/01/22/355-ways-wind-blowing-pt-climate-change/ Tue, 22 Jan 2019 10:05:56 +0000 http://www.ptpintcast.com/?p=5060 Rose Pignataro presented at the APTA's NEXT conference in 2018 on where Physical Therapy can effect climate change... we didn't understand how, so instead of reading about it, we just went and made her explain it to us. She brought some friends to help too. When it was over it made sense to us. From her presentation @ NEXT: "It can be argued that climate change is currently the biggest threat to global health. As physical therapists and physical therapist assistants, it is important for us to recognize the repercussions of global warming on the incidence and severity of disease and disability as a component of health promotion, wellness, and rehabilitative outcomes. Although it is not currently common practice, PTs and PTAs have numerous opportunities to play a crucial role in environmental sustainability. This session will explore the value of our professional knowledge and skill in health assessment and advocacy; plans of care relative to environmental exposure; and the influence of our physical surroundings on health behavior choices such as physical activity, proper nutrition, and stress management. Factors to consider include the impact of anthropogenic causes of climate change, ultimately affecting air and water quality; availability of healthy food, exposure to extreme weather hazards; and the influence of temperature on bacteria, fungi, and other infectious agents. The speakers will discuss an environmental framework that stresses the interdependence between personal and ecological well-being. This is consistent with the expectation that PTs and PTAs pursue interventions that treat communities as well as individuals, investing in population-level changes that advance public health."

Cancer survivorship issues are now in the spotlight of research and cancer care. The number of cancer patients and survivors are growing at an astonishing pace. This has only highlighted the still present “cancer rehabilitation gap”: Oncology doctors and nurses don’t know enough about rehabilitation, and rehabilitation therapists don’t know enough about oncology. The result? The very patients that come to us for help, bear the brunt of our unawareness. They suffer more pain, more fatigue, more weakness and more loss than is necessary. With the intent of pushing the quiet cancer rehabilitation evolution into a not so quiet revolution, the Waltke Cancer Rehabilitation was founded in 2016. By adding international collaboration and harnessing the power of social media and online education, the WCRA is driven to pull the worlds of rehabilitation and oncology together. People affected by cancer deserve the finest evidence-based treatment available. Together we have the power to provide it to them.

Robyn Culbertson Robyn Culbertson is a 3rd year DPT student at the University of South Carolina. After a 15-year career in magazine writing, editing and graphic design, she came to PT school in order to better fill the needs of her triathlon coaching clients and was surprised to find herself drawn to geriatrics. She's the current APTA Student Assembly liaison to PTNow and she volunteers with NeXT at the YMCA and Yoga for Everyone, two community-based classes that strive to make fitness accessible to people of all abilities. We talked about Coming to PT after careers in journalism, triathlons, Geriatrics & volunteerism and being involved with APTA on a national level. Reed Handlery Reed of House Handlery, first of his name, was born in California but raised in the plains of Illinois. Growing up Reed played everything from hacky-sack to rugby, though he wasn't great at either one. He married his high school sweetheart in 2012, the same year they moved to South Carolina for Kaci to begin PT school. With gentle prodding from Kaci, Reed switched career paths from strength and conditioning to PT and began at USC a year behind Kaci. After taking a year off to practice, Reed is currently in the first year of pursuing his PhD in rehabilitation sciences, again at USC.

Heather Jarvis - AskHeatherJarvis.com Heather graduated from Duke University School of Law cum laude owing $125,000 in student loans and facing 30-years’ worth of $1,200 monthly payments.  No one ever told Heather that she couldn’t afford to go to Duke, even though, um, she couldn’t.  Her mother was a modestly paid executive assistant and her father a mostly unemployed Shakespearean actor. Heather didn’t realize she couldn’t afford an expensive education until after she got one. At one time, people who earned fancy grades at fancy law schools got offered fancy jobs with fancy paychecks.  Having become all fancyfied, Heather had to decide: take the job she had been dreaming about all her life that only paid $25,000 per year (representing people facing criminal prosecution), or make a boatload of money. Duke Law’s generous loan repayment assistance program made it possible for Heather to eschew the money without defaulting on her student loans (Go Devils!).  She will always be grateful that Duke enabled her to continue ignoring her own financial security in pursuit of her irresistible urge to stand up for people in trouble. Heather has practiced public interest law for more than a dozen years.  Beginning in 2005, Heather focused her advocacy work on reducing the financial barriers to practicing public interest law. Heather has contributed to student debt relief policy for the House Education Committee and others in Congress, and has dedicated her professional efforts to advancing public service loan forgiveness which allows recent graduates to dedicate their careers to the greater good.  Heather leads efforts to establish and expand student debt relief programs and to inform borrowers, schools, and employers about how to benefit from available debt relief programs. Widely recognized by school professionals and media representatives as an expert source of information, Heather has trained thousands of students and professionals and is sought after for her sophisticated legal knowledge and accessible teaching style.   Kevin Soehner - iGrad.com Kevin coordinates interdepartmental communication and workflow while overseeing our back end operational units. Outside the office, Kevin can be found binging on Netflix and lamenting the latest Buffalo sports disappointment. About iGrad - In 2009, a group of financial aid professionals decided to tackle the alarming lack of financial capability among college students. Our sole mission is to empower this population to effectively manage their money, limit and repay their debts, and begin successful careers. Today, iGrad serves over 1.2 million students across 500 schools and organizations around the country. Our award-winning platform equips students with the tools needed to succeed in the real world of personal finance. https://www.ptpintcast.com/2017/07/31/216-jason-craig-creator-morphopedics-com/ https://www.ptpintcast.com/2017/09/04/mark-merolli-digital-health-physical-therapy/ https://www.ptpintcast.com/2017/10/19/238-kara-gainer-apta-director-regulatory-affairs/     306 - Student Loan Education with Heather Jarvis & Kevin Soehner Heather Jarvis - AskHeatherJarvis.com

Heather has practiced public interest law for more than a dozen years.  Beginning in 2005, Heather focused her advocacy work on reducing the financial barriers to practicing public interest law.

Heather has contributed to student debt relief policy for the House Education Committee and others in Congress, and has dedicated her professional efforts to advancing public service loan forgiveness which allows recent graduates to dedicate their careers to the greater good.  Heather leads efforts to establish and expand student debt relief programs and to inform borrowers, schools, and employers about how to benefit from available debt relief programs.

Widely recognized by school professionals and media representatives as an expert source of information, Heather has trained thousands of students and professionals and is sought after for her sophisticated legal knowledge and accessible teaching style.

Their session addressed the role of sports physical therapists working with various types of tactical athletes, focusing on how PTs across the country can develop similar programs. Physical therapists who currently work with firefighters, law enforcement, and military personnel will discuss the physical demands placed on tactical athletes, common musculoskeletal conditions, and related variables that rehabilitation professionals need to consider when working with this population. The speakers discussed specific examples of PTs working with tactical athletes to enhance readiness and performance, including the Fairfax County Fire Department Wellfit Center, Idaho State University's Center for Tactical Athlete Performance, and the US Army's Performance Triad and Holistic Health and Fitness programs. Learning Objectives: 1. Define the role of physical therapy in tactical athlete populations. 2. Discuss the physical demands of tactical occupations and the similarities and differences between tactical and "traditional" athletes. 3. Evaluate the unique rehabilitation considerations for firefighter, law enforcement, and military tactical athletes. 4. Analyze the requirements to develop tactical athlete health, wellness, and performance programs. 283 - Rich Westrick & Tactical Athlete SIG

Transcript: [00:00:23] I can't thank you enough for taking a listen to the show for another year in 2017 and as we come to a close and get ready to start another season of Peetie pie and cast we take a look back and give you the top eight episodes of 2018.

Again one thank you for sticking with us and listening to us and most of all for telling a friend the show is and will be always free for you to listen to and the best way you can show your appreciation is just by telling a friend Sharon episode on social media or sending an email to a colleague. So thank you for telling a friend. So take a listen and enjoy one of our top 8 episodes of 2013. Whether [00:01:05] you want to escape the snow or planted Arias Medical has you covered. Try a rewarding travel assignment during the holiday season with Arias medical group call Arias at 1 800 3 4 0 26 19 or visit Boreas medical com that's AUREUS Medical dot com. This is the mind gas. Like gas that talks about physical therapy. Over here bringing together clinicians researchers informed thinking PT's in a show that is anything. [00:01:40] But boring. Here's your host Jimmy McKay. [00:01:48] Here we go the next episode of my guest starts right now. The best conversations haven't had a happy hour. Welcome to OURS. Our guest tonight he's a professor of spying biomechanics at the University of Waterloo where he has a laboratory that. [00:02:02] Explores low back mechanics injury mechanisms for goals and performance enhancement. He's been author of over 240 scientific journal papers. And is a major over 40 graduate students during his scientific journey as a consultant. He has provided expertise and low back injury of various government agencies many corporations and legal firms handed professional international police teams. He has regularly referred to special occasion cases from the international medical community for pain. [00:02:33] My guest tonight Dr. Stuart MacGill during the show. Thank you very much Tumi. Appreciate you taking the time out as a recent graduate and as a person going through school. [00:02:43] Your name comes up a lot in the realm of LDP low back pain. So it's cool to be able to actually put a voice to a name I've seen on line so many times. So first I want to start. Let's start from the from the bottom or start from the very bottom the back we said there's no such thing as non-specific back pain. But you say there's three injury or pain mechanisms that you can show that it shows where this comes from. What does that mean. [00:03:10] I absolutely stand by the statement there is no such thing as non-specific back pain. There's no such thing as Lundbohm say cross-trained even degenerative disease I think does us all a great disservice. All this shows is that the person hasn't had a thorough assessment that will render a precise diagnosis of their pain a full understanding of their pain mechanism. Pain isn't normal. It's there. There's something causing it. The great clinicians sort it all out. You know I just get so dismayed at these current trends. The pain isn't the patients head and things like that. The most distraught psycho psychological lead disturbed back patients are the ones that have been told that the pain is in their head. I honestly thought this was a video podcast so I had models prepared based on what we have documented as the various tissues sensitized pain trigger mechanisms. And [00:04:21] I was going to show them to you. And there's there's many more than three but I just had three prepare. [00:04:30] Well I mean the cool thing about the Internet is what we can do is we can put those those models up on our Web site if you want to talk through those that people want to check it out along and have a little bit of visual we can do that.

[00:03:10] I absolutely stand by the statement there is no such thing as non-specific back pain. There's no such thing as Lundbohm say cross-trained even degenerative disease I think does us all a great disservice. All this shows is that the person hasn't had a thorough assessment that will render a precise diagnosis of their pain a full understanding of their pain mechanism. Pain isn't normal. It's there. There's something causing it. The great clinicians sort it all out. You know I just get so dismayed at these current trends. The pain isn't the patients head and things like that. The most distraught psycho psychological lead disturbed back patients are the ones that have been told that the pain is in their head. I honestly thought this was a video podcast so I had models prepared based on what we have documented as the various tissues sensitized pain trigger mechanisms. And
[00:04:21] I was going to show them to you. And there's there's many more than three but I just had three prepare.
[00:04:30] Well I mean the cool thing about the Internet is what we can do is we can put those those models up on our Web site if you want to talk through those that people want to check it out along and have a little...]]>

Tim is the former head strength and conditioning specialist for the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team.  We talked about his journey through his PT career to where he is now. Tim's Bio   TIMOTHY DIFRANCESCO FAVORITE QUOTE: "I am a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it." Thomas Jefferson WHY I BECAME A DPT: It appeared to be an excellent way to expand my abilities to help people perform at their best. I saw and heard the best in the business talking and acting within the languages of the physical therapy world - I wanted to learn those languages and skill sets. FAVORITE WORKOUT: Workouts that last 15-30 minutes, include lifting heavy shit the right way, hill sprints, and plyometrics are by far my favorite. I love push-ups, deadlifts, loaded carries, chin-ups, and I refuse to apologize for my affection for a good bi's & tri's pump! MOST FULFILLING PART OF THE JOB: When a person who I've been training says "I don't know what's going on here but I feel outstanding." I do like 8 consecutive mental fist pumps when I hear that type of comment. MOST MEMORABLE PART OF MY JOB WITH THE LAKERS: Witnessing Kobe score 60 points in his final game. IS THIS WHERE YOU ALWAYS SAW YOURSELF? A New England kid ending up working for the Lakers? No, I couldn't have pictured this. It's funny how things work out. All I ever saw was simple: Myself in a position to help as many people as I can to feel and perform better than they've ever felt.

250 – Eric Legrand – Faith Determination Inspiration https://www.ptpintcast.com/2017/11/13/250-eric-legrand-faith-determination-inspiration/ Mon, 13 Nov 2017 09:00:25 +0000 http://www.ptpintcast.com/?p=3995 Jimmy was honored to talk with Eric Legrand.  We got to hear his story after a spinal cord injury in 2010 as well as all of the amazing and motivational things he has done since then. He was a college football player at Rutgers University, signed an NFL contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Received the JIMMY V award at the ESPYs, Hosts a feature on Fox Sports called MISSION POSSIBLE, started his own charity to cure paralysis and improve the lives of people living with paralysis and, he’s a member of the QUAD SQUAD! Eric's Bio Faith. Determination. Inspiration. This is the foundation on which Eric LeGrand’s life is currently shaped upon. His career as a motivational speaker and sports analyst might strike others as overwhelming, but to LeGrand it’s all part of his diving purpose. During his tenure at Rutgers University in 2010, he enjoyed playing the game of football as a defensive tackle. But after a severe spinal injury (from an intense collision during a game at MetLife Stadium), which dramatically changed his life, LeGrand found himself wondering if he’d ever recapture that kind of success on the field. Through triumph and tragedy, Eric’s road to recovery has been less than effortless. Having undergone a nine-hour emergency surgery procedure to stabilize his spine as well as a rigorous rehabilitation process, he has regained movement in his shoulders and sensation throughout his body. With that, he resumed his college classes via Skype and graduated from Rutgers University (2014) with a degree in Labor Relations. Not only did he graduate with honors, but he also gave a commemorative speech during the commencement ceremony. He has recently launched his sports broadcasting career as an analyst for Rutgers Football Radio Network. With courage and grace, Eric has been honored with a plethora of awards and accolades throughout his recovery process, which include the “Unsung Hero Award” (2012) presented by the New Jersey Hall of Fame, the “Jimmy V Award” for Perseverance at the 20th Annual ESPYs (2012), and being elected as the “Most Influential Person in New Jersey Sports” presented by the Star Ledger (2012). On September 14, 2013, Rutgers hosted a ceremony, which retired the No. 52 jersey that belonged to Eric. Eric’s jersey was the first number to be retired by Rutgers in the history of their program. In awe of the unwavering support, Eric’s story continues to touch numerous lives. Eric released his first book in the fall of 2012, titled BELIEVE: My Faith And The Tackle That Changed my Life (HarperCollins Publishers). He also signed an official NFL contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (by his former Rutgers coach, Greg Schiano). Eric quickly became an advocate for individuals that are affected with spinal cord Injuries and disorders. Fueled with passion, LeGrand decided to form Team LeGrand of the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation. Established in 2013, the proceeds generated from the charity go toward research to find a cure for paralysis and help to improve the quality of life for people with spinal cord injuries. Eric recently hosted the fourth annual “A Walk to Believe: One Step Closer With Team LeGrand” at Rutgers HighPoint Stadium. Key industry leaders such as Subway, AmeriHealth, Robert Wood Johnson and many more sponsored this event. Destroying the original goal of raising 52K, A Walk to Believe raised over 65K. Having been afforded to see the world and taste the fullness of life, he has partnered and reveled in the company of notable celebrities such as Jay-Z, Beyoncé, LeBron James, Tim Howard, Jessica Alba, Rob Lowe and countless others. He also has a business partnership with the Jordan Brand, in which he is working on a documentary about his life slated for 2015. In October 2016, Eric took center stage and announced the debut of his new digital series titled “Mission Possible” which is a six-part compilation that profiles individuals living with disabilities and overcoming adversity.... 250 - Eric Legrand - Faith Determination Inspiration Eric's Bio

So while we didn't intend this to be an episode, we figured since Brandon recorded the call for his notes we might as well share it since some of the info applies to students no matter where you go to school. 247 - 1st Year SPT Brandon Baranzini interviews Jimmy A student, Brandon Baranzini, was in the audience at the National Student Conclave for Jimmy's talk.  He then reached out to interview Jimmy for an assignment for class where he had to talk to a PT who is not solely a clinician... and he picked Jimmy for some reason.<br /> <br /> So while we didn't intend this to be an episode, we figured since Brandon recorded the call for his notes we might as well share it since some of the info applies to students no matter where you go to school.

BULLETS 1 ~ DREAM PROJECT !!!!!!  Participation for children with developmental disabilities. - I love our dance program (obvious statement alert) but I am passionate about seeing that increase across the board to be whatever that child might see themselves doing: PTs should be a major part of helping the child/family realize those dreams. 2 ~Goal-setting - oh yes.  Perhaps not the most exciting topic to some but there are a few of us out there who have realized that appropriate and meaningful goal setting with the child and team members means more effective treatments and better results for the child. Period. 3 ~ Give-back - we need that, our patients need that. Not just to the international causes but to our patients directly. I deeply admire the PTs that 'go the extra mile' to help those on their caseload.

1 ~ DREAM PROJECT !!!!!!  Participation for children with developmental disabilities. - I love our dance program (obvious statement alert) but I am passionate about seeing that increase across the board to be whatever that child might see themselves doing: PTs should be a major part of helping the child/family realize those dreams.

2 ~Goal-setting - oh yes.  Perhaps not the most exciting topic to some but there are a few of us out there who have realized that appropriate and meaningful goal setting with the child and team members means more effective treatments and better results for the child. Period.

3 ~ Give-back - we need that, our patients need that. Not just to the international causes but to our patients directly. I deeply admire the PTs that 'go the extra mile' to help those on their caseload.

Tim's Bio Dr. Tim Fox of Fox Rehabilitation Dr. Tim Fox is a man driven by a passion to change how our world sees ageing and to make his pioneering approach to rehabilitation available to all older adults so they can achieve what once seemed impossible. Dr. Fox is a practicing physical therapist and the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of FOX Rehabilitation™, a high growth entrepreneurial private practice. Dr. Fox received his Master of Science in Physical Therapy and his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree (DPT) from Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA. He is a Board Certified Geriatric Clinical Specialist (GCS) by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties and a Credentialed Clinical Instructor (CCI) by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). Early Career Dr. Fox began his career at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in 1995. Following Thomas Jefferson, he became Director of Rehabilitation for a healthcare facility belonging to the Genesis Elder Care Company. His efforts led the facility to receive its first Joint Commission Accreditation for Sub-Acute and Long-Term Care. He also established and implemented intensive rehabilitation programs and protocols that significantly improved the quality of care for the facilities’ clients. Dr. Fox felt that felt that more autonomy in his work would enable him to provide a more personal and accessible level of care, which in turn would produce more functional and useful outcomes for clients. His interest in the unique needs of the older adults allowed him to identify a significant limitation in how older adults access and receive necessary physical and occupational therapies. Creation of Fox Rehabilitation It was shortly thereafter, in 1998, that Dr. Fox founded FOX Rehabilitation, offering the innovative concept of Geriatric House Calls™. Dr. Fox is widely known for his revolutionary approach to physical therapy and how it contributions to improving the function, safety, and quality of life of older adults. The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) acknowledged Dr. Fox with its 2011 Clinical Excellence in Geriatrics Award for “Outstanding Clinical Practice in Geriatric Physical Therapy”. Therapy Times online selected him the “Most Influential Physical Therapist in the Nation” in 2010. He also was an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2011 Greater Philadelphia Award finalist.

He is guest lecturer in the master in manual therapy of the Universidad Europea in Spain, and the PhD neuroscience program of the University of Genoa, Italy. His research and clinical interests are patients with chronic unexplained pain / fatigue and pain-movement interactions. He has (co-)authored 185 peer reviewed publications, obtained €5.6 million of grant income, supervised 8 PhD projects to completion (excluding 16 ongoing PhD projects) and served more than 200 times as an invited speaker at (inter)national meetings in 24 different countries (including 23 keynotes). His work has been cited >2700 times (ISI Web of Knowledge).

Website: www.paininmotion.be Twitter: @PaininMotion   Dr. Nijs holds a PhD in rehabilitation science and physiotherapy and also has a master of science in physiotherapy and rehabilitations sciences as well as in manual therapy. He is currently a associate professor at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (in Belgium), and a practicing physiotherapist at the University Hospital Brussels, and holder of the Chair ‘Exercise immunology and chronic fatigue in health and disease’ funded by the European College for Decongestive Lymphatic Therapy. Dr. Jo Nijs, PhD also runs the “Pain in Motion” research team and a physiotherapy-based treatment program for patients with chronic pain at the University Hospital in Brussels. His research and clinical interests are patients with chronic ‘unexplained’ pain and fatigue and the interactions between pain and movement, with a special emphasis on the central nervous system. The primary aim of his research is improving physiotherapy based care for patients with chronic pain. He has co-authored more than 150 peer reviewed publications. Without further ado, here are 20 quotes from physiotherapist Dr. Jo Nijs, PhD: “It is well established that the biomedical model falls short in explaining chronic musculoskeletal pain. Although many musculoskeletal therapists have moved on in their thinking and apply a broad bio- psychosocial view with regard to chronic pain disorders, the majority of clinicians have received a biomedical-focused training/education. Such a biomedical training is likely to influence the therapists’ attitudes and core beliefs toward chronic musculoskeletal pain. Therapists should be aware of the impact of their own attitudes and beliefs on the patient’s attitudes and beliefs.” Dr. Jo Nijs, PhD “Self-reflection is required for the musculoskeletal health care professionals, even for those who have moved on in their thinking. Indeed, it has been demonstrated that previous (biomedical oriented) treatment by physiotherapists is a risk factor for long- term sick leave in patients with low back pain” Dr. Jo Nijs, PhD “Therapists should become aware that focusing on the biomedical model for chronic musculoskeletal pain is likely to result in poor compliance with evidence based treatment guidelines, less treatment adherence, and poorer treatment outcome” Dr. Jo Nijs, PhD “Chronic musculoskeletal pain is a complex and challenging medical problem. Therefore, it is a challenging issue for researchers and clinicians, including manual therapists. Over the past decades, scientific understanding of chronic musculoskeletal pain has increased substantially.” Dr. Jo Nijs, PhD 240 - Jo Nijs how sleep affects pain perception Jo Nijs, PT, MT, PhD

Below are the pictures of the original message that he received his eloquent response.   CURTIS TAIT, BSC, MPT, DPT, IMS PHYSIOTHERAPY EDUCATOR Curtis has always enjoyed helping people, which made his journey to a career in Physiotherapy a natural fit. Practicing since 2012, his journey started at the University of Victoria in 2004 studying kinesiology (the science of human movement and exercise). This began his thirst to understand all aspects of the human body, especially movement. He finally attained his goal of becoming a physiotherapist graduating from the University of British Columbia in 2012, he has been practicing in Victoria since. Curtis has a bottomless appetite for learning and growing professionally; to this end he has taken courses in manual and manipulative therapy, IMS/dry needling, vestibular and neurological rehabilitation, as well as chronic pain seminars. Having worked in private practice, pain management, head injury programs, and in a neuro-rehabilitation clinic, Curtis works with all types of clients. Sports injuries, chronic pain conditions, and neurological disorders are all within Curtis' area of expertise. While he maintains a diverse interest in treating all types of conditions, Curtis particularly enjoys focusing on spinal pain, headaches, hip, knee and ankle conditions, sports injuries, temporomandibular dysfunction, chronic pain, diabetes-related conditions, vestibular disorders, stroke and spinal cord injuries. Inspired and enthused by an approach that focuses on providing his clients with the best care Curtis completed a Doctorate of Physical Therapy, which focuses on evidence based practice in the clinical science of physiotherapy. Curtis was naturally drawn to Tall Tree Integrated Health Centre based on the clinic’s orientation to excellence, fun, and positively changing the landscape of healthcare on Vancouver Island and in BC. He is very excited to be working with like-minded professionals dedicated to making a positive difference to their patients, community, and profession. When not engrossed in the latest rehabilitation science publication, Curtis loves spending time with his family and friends travelling around BC and the west coast finding adventures involving the beach and mountains. Having grown-up in northern BC and the Yukon he relishes any chance to play in the snow, and has maintained a love for board sports, basketball, photography and anything involving creative movement.

This episode tells the story of Aunt Mary through the words of Physical Therapist Elizabeth Kerrigan. In it we take a look at how the profession of Physical Therapy can impact patients and families with Alzheimer's Disease. To tell this story Elizabeth uses her aunt's journey as well as talking to health care experts on the disease.  We spoke with Dr. Pasquale Fonzetti of Burke Rehabilitation Hospital in White Plains New York, Julie Reis a Physical Therapy educator, clinician and researcher and Eric Vidoni a PT and Ph.D. researcher at the University of Kansas Medical Center. Our goal was to highlight that Physical Therapy is in an amazing position to positively affect those suffering from Alzheimer's Disease. Research has shown that exercise, with intensity, slows the progression of the disease as well as the many many added health benefits that exercise contributes to the body. The show is free to download, but if you are so moved by the story and would like to make a financial contribution we ask that you do it through the Alzheimer's Association here.

In this episode Jimmy McKay talks with 5-time Ironman Champion Lindsey Corbin. Corbin first stepped into triathlon in 2006. The “unknown” from Bend Oregon, made an early statement in the sport. Not only did she win the first two races she ever entered, she went on to set a course record in her first race as a professional. Since then, Linsey Corbin has become a household name in the sport of triathlon, achieving a multitude of accolades including top American at both Ironman and 70.3 World Championship events and adding five Ironman titles to her trophy case in the process. In 2015, Corbin set a new American Ironman Record in a time 8:42:42 at Ironman Austria. Linsey is known for the “Grit & Grace” attitude she displays on and off the course. When not racing, Linsey enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband Chris and golden retriever Madison. She also is a fan of all things baking, cooking, traveling, scrabble, and of course, well-made boots.

Mikes Story: I sustained a spinal cord injury during a varsity hockey game on January 4,2014. From the first day I was injured, support poured in from around the tri- state area – from fellow classmates to radio personalities Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton – as they shared my story and followed my progress with the hashtags #PrayforMikey and #MikeyStrong23 on social media.  This support continued to drive my desire for rehabilitation, and I then participated in the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation’s NeuroRecovery Network® with locomotor training. Since starting the program, there have been significant improvements in my trunk control and overall health. Now I have partnered with the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation as a member of Team Reeve, a peer-to-peer fundraising initiative for spinal cord injury research and awareness. Within the past years, I have continued my education, planned charity events for spinal cord injury awareness, and became an ambassador for the paralysis community. I am also an avid supporter of The Big Idea, a movement supported by the Reeve Foundation that focuses on groundbreaking epidural stimulation research to improve quality of life for those living with a spinal cord injury. My determination grows stronger every day as I work toward my personal goal of getting back on the ice while inspiring others in my community. I strive to share this story with as many individuals as possible in schools and organizations across New Jersey, delivering a message of hope and strength.

Joe's Bio: My name is Joe, I’m 23 years old and I’m from Westfield, NJ. I’ve played sports my entire life and have always been fascinated with fitness. I began my undergraduate studies at Bucknell University where I majored in Biology and worked in a research lab. After a few weeks at school, I felt that something was missing so I decided to walk on to Bucknell’s football team. Unfortunately, my collegiate football career quickly came to an end due to some medical concerns. Without football, I found myself yearning for both a physical and mental challenge and that is exactly what I found in the weight room. I found myself constantly in the gym and I quickly fell in love with fitness. After my sophomore year I realized that molecular biology wasn’t my passion and I decided to change course to pursue what I loved. I decided to pursue a degree in exercise science by transferring to Rutgers University where I completed my Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science and Applied Kinesiology. While attending Rutgers, I interned and then worked with my high school athletic trainer, Chris Flores, at his sports performance and personal training facility – Flo Fitness. While working with Chris and fellow trainer Johnny Rodriguez, I learned more about fitness, exercise and movement than I had in almost a decade of lifting weights. While working at Flo Fitness I had the incredible opportunity to train youth athletes of all ages, including high level high school and collegiate athletes. Working at Flo Fitness afforded me valuable coaching and training experience that I will carry with me throughout my career. My coaching experience at Flo Fitness has given me a deep coaching skill set as well as a unique perspective on training for sports performance and injury prevention. I am currently pursing my Doctorate Of Physical Therapy (DPT) at Drexel University in Philadelphia and plan to graduate in March of 2019. When I’m not at the gym or studying, I enjoy staying up to date on some of my favorite sports team (Yankees, Giants, Knicks) as well as practicing video editing and cinematography. I enjoy combining my passions of cinematography, fitness and physical therapy to produce content on my Instagram page (@joe_flofit) – you should check it out! I’m a total nerd when it comes to all things physical therapy… well, I’m just a nerd in general. In addition to physical therapy, fitness and film-making, I enjoy motivating others and spreading positive messages. I am always open to feedback, suggestions, and constructive criticism, so don’t hesitate to reach out! If you have any questions, comments, suggestions or you just want to get in touch, please feel free to contact me via Instagram or through the contact page. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy!

As well as the importance of adaptive activities and community involvement for individuals with disabilities (Kids In Action program as an example from HSC in Washington DC. Amy focused on student mentoring, and what things to go towards, as well as what things to avoid in mentoring, And she added a parting shot to remember why you're here, and forget about the loans. Jason focused on the question, "Who do we think we are?" as PTs. There's so much garbage going around from within the profession.

The PT Day of Service Story What if. I imagine a few things have started that way in the past, and a few things will start that way in the future. This particular ‘what if’ came to my mind in February 2015. I was doing health volunteer work off the Amazon River in Peru. As I looked upon the river, an idea that had been bubbling in the back of my mind suddenly shot to the front in full force.What if, on the same day, clinicians, students and associated staff of the Physical Therapy profession volunteered in different communities around the world? What if, we then shared those moments and acts in a way that was galvanizing, inspiring, and promoted connections all over the world? What if!? Being on the Amazon and watching the river flow, I couldn’t help but think of our profession of Physical Therapy as a flowing river. A river made up of passion, love, life, kindness, and heart. A river that enhances and is enhanced by the shores it passes and the encounters it makes. Our River. Our Profession. Our Communities. The idea was taking form that a Day of Service would serve as another wave to have a positive impact on all involved. I was smiling as the thought was developing and I knew I had to share it with someone. I emailed Josh right away... For the full PTDOS Story, click here.  Efosa is the Founder of Physical Therapy Haven. He received his B.S. in Kinesiology from Umass-Amherst, and his Physical Therapy Doctorate from the University of Scranton. He is driven by his love for this profession which allows us to use our hands and words to help others.

Mark's Bio: Mark Merolli is a passionate digital health and informatics professional. He work in academia, research, clinical practice, as a consultant, and on various entrepreneurial projects. His clinical background as a Physiotherapist has been rewarding and grounding. After years focussing on clinical practice exclusively, he was drawn in by the paradigm shift I was witnessing both with his own patients and in the wider community – a push enabled by technology. He was an early adopter. During a stint living and practicing abroad in the United Kingdom, he was fortunate enough to gain some experience working at a digital media agency alongside my clinical work, specialising in online, print media and advertising. This parallel experience to health practice was invaluable and provided a foothold to explore “digital” in “health”. Working as part of the online team helped him gain extensive knowledge in the web, social media, website management, search engine optimization (SEO), digital analytics and, digital strategy. By doing this, he was better able to conceptualise the digital landscape and relate it back to his passion – healthcare. All of his experiences have led him to focus his career very much in the digital health space. He has a PhD in this area, specialising in social media for health but my interests and expertise covers a range of technologies and areas (especially consumer-centric technologies that influence participation in health – mHealth, apps, sensors, telehealth, virtual reality, games, etc). Currently he is involved in research, lecture, educate, strategy, speaking and providing thought leadership on all things digital health to various health organisations, entities and individuals. In addition, he also has formal qualifications in health informatics, such as Membership in the Australasian College of Health Informatics (MACHI), a Certified Health Informatician Australasia (CHIA), endorsed by Australian College of Health Informatics (ACHI) and Health Informatics Society of Australia (HISA), as well as being the Chairman of the International Medical Informatics Association – Participatory Health and Social Media Working Group (IMIA – PHSM). His real passion is to connect with likeminded health professionals and other stakeholders who are interested in this big wide world we now call “digital health”. As technologies continue to intertwine with healthcare, it’s important we’re equipped with the knowledge and understanding to operate confidently in this environment. His overall vision is to connect with, educate and up-skill health professionals across a variety of digital health areas and to help solve practical solutions in future models of healthcare.

They do it by one of those little chat windows in the bottom right hand corner of your screen, when you go to a website, You know the ones that pop up and say something like "Need any assistance with whatever?" Well this one isn't a chat bot or someone sitting in a call center in a foreign country, this one is a licensed PT. Whose goal is to see if that person on YOUR website would benefit from an eval with YOU. See where this is going? If you are a PT - offers on-demand to full-time flexibility and higher earning potential that any other job in the physical therapy field. They let YOU be that PT on the other end of that chat box, whenever you're free. You answer a few min worth of initial questions to see if PT would benefit the person on the other end, and if they do, you give them a link to schedule an eval... no paperwork, just your clinical decision making that may, or may not lead to an eval. What platform does it run on? Web Based What does it cost: For PTs, they start by being paid $10 for each scheduled evaluation If they refer a PT, they earn another $1 per chat with a max of $20 for each scheduled evaluation If they refer a PT Clinic who signs up, they earn another $5 per chat, still at a max of $20 for each scheduled evaluation The referral system allows everyone to get to that $20/scheduled chat pretty easy where helping patients via PTlive. For PT Clinics, we start at $39 each month and $34 for each successfully scheduled chat PT clinics can pay annually for $390 (2 months free) and $24 for each successfully scheduled chat (effectively, if a clinic paid annually and the owner ran the chat and was earning the $20/scheduled eval, effectively the cost is $4.00 per eval. Does it make your life easier as a PT:  Yeah.... if you're a clinic that wouldn't mind a few extra evals without having to spend a ton of time sitting on your website, then yes. Who wouldn't want to turn visitors into patients? If you're a PT, and wouldn't mind turning your free time sitting on the couch into some extra cash, why not? 225 - What's APPening?! - PTLive.me

We talked about the arc of the Global Day of Service and where they envision the movement going in the future. PT DOS is well underway right now and you can pledge your support here:  PT Day of Service PT DOS Bio: EFOSA GUOBADIA: What if. I imagine a few things have started that way in the past, and a few things will start that way in the future. This particular ‘what if’ came to my mind in February 2015. I was doing health volunteer work off the Amazon River in Peru. As I looked upon the river, an idea that had been bubbling in the back of my mind suddenly shot to the front in full force. What if, on the same day, clinicians, students and associated staff of the Physical Therapy profession volunteered in different communities around the world? What if, we then shared those moments and acts in a way that was galvanizing, inspiring, and promoted connections all over the world? What if!? Being on the Amazon and watching the river flow, I couldn’t help but think of our profession of Physical Therapy as a flowing river. A river made up of passion, love, life, kindness, and heart. A river that enhances and is enhanced by the shores it passes and the encounters it makes. Our River. Our Profession. Our Communities. The idea was taking form that a Day of Service would be another wave to have a positive impact on all involved. I was smiling as the thought was developing and I knew I had to share it with someone. I emailed Josh right away... JOSH D'ANGELO: Let's shoot for the stars. Back in February, I received an email at about 11:30pm. As I curled into bed and saw the email was from Efosa, I could not help but read it. Our exchanges often serve as a place to reflect on our lives, careers, and what physical therapy can and should be. This particular email happened to be a new idea, something to the effect of starting a 'PT Day of Service.' Three sentences into the email, I had a visceral response, one that told me this is something we not only should do, but something we need to do; a chance for the profession to show what we can do when we all work together. At 11:35pm, I popped back up, turned the light on, and flipped open my laptop. Over the next 15 minutes, I did my best to articulate that this was NOT just another idea, this is a movement we HAVE to start. Later on that night as I drifted off to sleep, I remember the last thought that crossed my mind: 'Let's really do this. Let's shoot for the stars.' EFOSA & JOSH: What was once an idea has evolved into a real, palpable movement driven by eight volunteers, a growing list of international ambassadors, and many supporters across the world. We have had the chance to talk about servant leadership, community engagement, and all that is possible when we ask ourselves how we can do our part to make life better for those around us, when we ask ourselves how can we put compassion into action. We know the impact will be real on not only those we serve, but on our profession and ourselves. To our knowledge, this is the first global Day of Service coordinated by a whole profession. It gives us the chance to lead and serve at the same time. Our hope for this day is that it sparks new connections, strengthens established ones, and further stimulates conversations on how we can keep this river flowing strongly for our profession and the communities we touch. Because...What if.

Jimmy McKay, PT, DPT yes 13:15 218 – What’s APPening?! – Run Cadence App https://www.ptpintcast.com/2017/08/01/whats-appening-run-cadence-app/ Tue, 01 Aug 2017 10:00:40 +0000 http://ptpintcast.com/?p=3236 Name of the app:  Run Cadence Who makes it: Physical Therapists Chris Johnson & Ben Wobker. What is their website / where can you find more info about it:  RunCadence.net What does the app DO? Determine your cadence through a 1 minute baseline test just by running the app and then running while holding your iphone. It then allows you to set a target cadence for training and racing. Then it gives you Real Time feedback through a metronome and haptic feature that automatically turns on in the event you fall out of the desired step rate and turns off once you adopt the desired step rate. Any cool features? Little things that make it awesome: The reasoning behind this is in FULL including citations and links of course, at their website RunCadance.net but the jist of it is there's research to support that changing running cadence (or generally your steps per minute while running) can decrease running related injuries at the hip, knee, shin, ankle and foot. INCREASING CADENCE WHILE KEEPING RUNNING VELOCITY CONSTANT IS AN EASY WAY TO HELP RUNNERS REDUCE THEIR STEP LENGTH, WHICH AFFORDS DISTINCT BENEFITS IN ADDRESSING COMMON RUNNING RELATED INJURIES A 5% INCREASE IN STEP RATE LEADS TO A 20% REDUCTION IN ENERGY ABSORPTION AT THE KNEE What platforms does it run on:  iPhone only What does it cost:  2.99 Does it make your life easier as a PT?  Yes, a great suggestion to a patient who's a runner looking to reduce stress on the LE.  For me personally it's well worth $2.99 to help me run with reduced force on my body. I like the external cues of the metronome (and yes you can still play your music in the background while using this... that was a BIG plus for me!)

It then allows you to set a target cadence for training and racing. Then it gives you Real Time feedback through a metronome and haptic feature that automatically turns on in the event you fall out of the desired step rate and turns off once you adopt the desired step rate.<br /> Any cool features? Little things that make it awesome:<br />  <br /> The reasoning behind this is in FULL including citations and links of course, at their website RunCadance.net but the jist of it is there's research to support that changing running cadence (or generally your steps per minute while running) can decrease running related injuries at the hip, knee, shin, ankle and foot.<br /> <br /> INCREASING CADENCE WHILE KEEPING RUNNING VELOCITY CONSTANT IS AN EASY WAY TO HELP RUNNERS REDUCE THEIR STEP LENGTH, WHICH AFFORDS DISTINCT BENEFITS IN ADDRESSING COMMON RUNNING RELATED INJURIES A 5% INCREASE IN STEP RATE LEADS TO A 20% REDUCTION IN ENERGY ABSORPTION AT THE KNEE<br /> <br /> What platforms does it run on:<br />  iPhone only <br />  <br /> What does it cost:<br />  2.99<br /> <br /> Does it make your life easier as a PT?<br />  Yes, a great suggestion to a patient who's a runner looking to reduce stress on the LE.  For me personally it's well worth $2.99 to help me run with reduced force on my body.

The PT treated me and finished the session by applying some tape to my leg. When I asked if this was the same tape I had seen during the Olympics, the answer was yes. I was skeptical about the tape, but after a week my injury was healing nicely and I also noticed that my legs felt pretty good after a long ride. I started doing more research on the tape’s effects and that’s when I discovered that the tape can be used to enhance performance. (Going stronger, longer…) After trying the tape on friends and family with good results, I got excited and talked to a number of companies about buying and selling the tape. The response I got was frankly, crazy: no one wanted to sell me tape unless I became “certified” in their specific taping methods. It was their way of making the tape more exclusive and expensive. I decided there had to be a better way to get this great product into the hands of those who needed it, so I located a source, modified the formula and formed RockTape. I hope you love RockTape as much as I do, but if you don’t, we offer a 100% money-back guarantee. So what do you have to lose? Try RockTape today, and see how it can enhance your sports performance! Greg van den Dries The Big Cheese, RockTape Shante's Bio: C. Shante Cofield, PT, DPT, OCS, CSCS, CF-L1 Treatment Philosophy Shante employs a functional and integrated approach to evaluation and treatment, with an emphasis on identifying involved soft tissues and structures via movement dysfunction. With this biomechanical assessment serving as a foundation, Shante implements a comprehensive treatment plan that is specific to each patient's pathology and includes manual (hands-on) interventions, corrective exercises, therapeutic taping, and any necessary behavioral modifications. For those of you who don’t speak science, this means analyzing the way you move in order to determine the source of your pain, and then treating the problem, not just the symptoms. Bio Shante grew up in Summit, New Jersey, where she was a 4-year varsity athlete, playing soccer, basketball, and lacrosse. During her sophomore year of high school, Shante tore her ACL, MCL, and meniscus, thus introducing her to the world of physical therapy. Shante successfully rehabilitated her knee and went on to play four years of Division I collegiate soccer at Georgetown University where she received her Bachelor of Science in Health Science. Wishing to combine her passion for movement and health into a career, Shante continued her educational pursuits at New York University, graduating with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) and earning her certification as a Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS). Shante used her time at NYU to focus on sports medicine and orthopedic rehabilitation and further developed her orthopedic skills via numerous continuing education courses, later becoming a certified Functional Movement Screen (FMS) provider and Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) provider. Always thirsty for knowledge, Shante then went on to become a board certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS), demonstrating advanced clinical reasoning, skills, and experience.

This global perspective provides distinct insights into the practice of physical therapy and the management of patients. Dr. Craig has spent a considerable amount of his career working with athletes of all skill levels, from the upcoming teenage athletes to college stars, right up to Olympic hopefuls and world-class competitors. This work has allowed him to travel the world assisting athletes in pursuit of their dreams on the stage of world competition. Dr. Craig brings his passion for the use of technology to his teaching with the incorporation of a variety of platforms used to communicate the information students require to be successful in their careers as physical therapists. Morphopedics Info: Morphopedics.com is a new way to study Orthopedics. This site parallels the Orthopedics Courses at Marymount University and should be used as a resource to enhance your learning of the great subject of orthopedics. This site however is different to straight-up read and regurgitate learning. This site offers you the chance to add to the knowledge base by submitting your own pages and ideas to enhance everyone's opportunity to improve their skills. Traditionally faculty teach from textbooks and journal articles. Students are 'supposed' to write copious notes, rewrite them into words they can understand and then reproduce that information at a given moment - usually under the stress of an examination. Morphopedics aims to change that traditional learning model into a much more fluid transition of learning with the flow moving from faculty to student, from student to student and from student to faculty. Morphopedics offers everyone involved in this class to share their insights and the fruits of their research as we all move towards the goal of becoming more skillful practitioners. 216 - Jason Craig Creator of Morphopedics.com Jimmy sat down with one of his former professors from Marymount University, Jason Craig.  Jason is the creator of Morphopedics.com. They talked about the creation of the page, how it's content is added and how far the information has spread since its inception.  Jason reminds student and new PTs alike to be comfortable with the uncertain, and focus less on "getting the right answer."<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Jason's Bio:<br /> <br /> Dr. Jason Craig has the unique perspective of having studied, and been on faculty, at one of the premier physiotherapy schools in the United Kingdom and having translated that foundation to become an educator in the United States.

What is their website / where can you find more info about it? www.UofMHealth.org http://www.med.umich.edu/neurology/nerve-whiz.htm What does the app DO? It's an amazing map to the peripheral nervous system. Get deep into nerve roots, plexuses, and peripheral nerves. This app goes beyond a simple nerve chart to help medical professionals interpret clinical examinations. Users select which muscles are weak or point to where the patient has sensory loss and the application suggests possible diagnosis, complete with relevant pictures and diagrams. Sort by Muscle, Nerve, Root, Trunk, Cord or Action's of muscles of the upper and lower extremity Diagrams from Root, Plexus, and nerve. And a sensory localizer. The app even has an amazing story behind its creation. Nerve Whiz was financed by the Jerry Isler Neuromuscular Fund. Jerry was diagnosed with a painful neuromuscular disease affecting his legs when he went to the university of michigan to seek treatment all the way from London. He was SO happy with the care he received at U-M, So, with his wife, established the Jerry Isler Neuromuscular Fund in late 2009 to support U-M research and education related to neuromuscular disorders. and that's where some of the funding for the creation of the app came from! What platforms does it run on? Iphone Android Ipad All 3! What does it cost? FREEEEEEEEEE! Does it make your life as a PT easier? Yes... this is a great reference tool that is REALLY easy to use, takes SOME getting use to it's navigation which is probably it's only drawback, but once you get used to it it's an amazing resource. How many beers does it get (out of a 6-pack)?

Jimmy McKay, PT, DPT yes 22:12 What’s APPening? – Essential Anatomy 3D Anatomy App https://www.ptpintcast.com/2017/07/18/whats-appening-essential-anatomy-3d-anatomy-app/ Tue, 18 Jul 2017 09:00:52 +0000 http://ptpintcast.com/?p=3062 Jimmy reviews the 3D Anatomy app "Essential Anatomy" from 3D4 Medical.com.  It's a 3 D anatomy app that lets you see the WHOLE body at once! You can highlight a bone, or muscle or nerve. You can remove complete layers of the body all at once or you can take things away one by one. One feature that I love is you can highlight a structure... like pick a muscle, my fav is the serratus anterior, and you can highlight IT and that will make the rest of the body a little dimmer, so you can still see it, in context. With over 4000 Structures in high detail, it'll even help you pronounce the hard to say things in the body... like how DO you pronounce glo·mer·u·lus anyway? 10 body systems TOTAL to play around with, it's a must have for the PT student and clinician. These include: Muscular, Skeletal, Connective Tissue, Venous, Arterial (including the Heart), Nervous (including the Brain), Respiratory, Digestive, Urinary and the latest addition Lymphatic. Clever functionality found within the app allows the user to strip away layers of muscle via the ‘scalpel’ tool. Graphics are 3d and seamless and lets you rotate around the structures. you can even set up a quiz (cough cough PT STUDENTS STUDYING FOR BOARDS?) pick drag and drop or multiple choice and 3d anatomy will quiz you on what you're looking at... and you can buy more than just essential anatomy, they let you bundle buy with their other great apps that are a little more specific. like heart pro, foot & ankle and shoulder pro. It's available on all of your apple devices, computers and android tech.  The app is $9.99 but I'd suggest going for a bundle for around $20 and getting 3-4 different apps. This app is TOTALLY worth the $9.99 price tag and is amazing for PT Student or Clinician alike. Jimmy rated this a 6/6 giving it a perfect 6-pack score on the PT Pintcast scale. Get their list of all of their apps, including essential anatomy here.

In August 2006, Janne Kouri's life changed in a split second. An avid athlete, Janne was participating in a beach volleyball tournament. Between matches he decided to take dip in the ocean to cool off. Like so many times before, Janne ran into the water and dove through a wave. Janne hit his head on a sand bar & fractured his C5 & C6 vertebrae. In an instant, he was paralyzed from the neck down. The next thing he remembers is being told by his doctors he has no hope for recovery and he will never walk again. But the real shock was when he was told that there was not a single progressive rehab center in the state of California. After two months in ICU, in order to get the rehab services, he so desperately needed for survival, he had to move 2000 miles away to Louisville, KY. Janne, and his girlfriend Susan, traveled to Frazier Rehab in Louisville to participate in a cutting edge rehabilitation therapy for individuals with Spinal Cord Injury called "Locomotor Training." For twelve months Janne and Susan lived in Louisville, and under the watchful eye of his therapy team, saw great improvements in his muscle strength, movement, and general health. Unfortunately, his insurance coverage came to an end and it was time to move back home to California. Janne quickly discovered there was not a single community facility in California or in the US that offered locomotor training. He discovered that there is a complete lack of community fitness, health, and wellness resources available to the Six Million people with paralysis-related disabilities in America. Six Million people, that is the combined populations of Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. He wondered what everyone else like him was doing.  So, with the help of his family, friends, and the guiding influence of Dr. Susie Harkema - one of the neuroscientists who created Locomotor Training & enhanced Activity Based Therapy techniques, Janne and Susan decided to start NextStep. Janne Kouri - President and Founder, NextStep Janne Kouri, who sustained a spinal cord injury in 2006, is the Chairman of the Board, Founder and President of NextStep. Prior to NextStep, Mr. Kouri was the North American Director for Sulake Corporation, a global leader in digital entertainment and media. Mr. Kouri was responsible for Sulake’s overall business strategy and management of its property Habbo, a new type of youth brand, which is based on one of the world's fastest growing online communities and virtual worlds for teenagers. Prior to Sulake, Kouri worked in venture capital and was co-founder of Orchimedia, a mobile gaming pioneer. In 1997, he earned a B.S.B.A from Georgetown University Business School. He also played football for Georgetown and was named the team's Most Valuable Player, an All-American, and was recipient of the 1996 MAAC Defensive Player of the Year Award. He still holds the record for most sacks in a career (31.5). Represented by the Guild Agency, Janne is an active speaker including: TEDx, Nexus Youth Summit, The Abilities Expo, Georgetown University, UCLA, USC, and Rutgers University. Janne recently gave the keynote speech at the Stony Brook University School of Health Technology and Management. Janne has appeared on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” CBS’ “The Doctors,” CNN’s “Human Factor,” HLN’s “Morning Express,” the Discovery Channel, and more. Janne was also the recipient of Brunswick School’s 2013 Distinguished Alumni Award. 207 - Janne Kouri What's the Next Step after Spinal Cord Injury?
