Altered Motor Control - Review of ResearchAltered Motor Control - Review of Research
Kyle Kiesel PT, PhD, ATC, CSCS
This, of course is a complex question, but we have learned that the response to movement following injury is more complex than previously thought. One approach is to look at injury risk factors to, in a sense, we work backwards to help us answer the question. By considering risk factors for injury, we gain a better understanding of what happening in the motor control system after injury. It is clear from the peer reviewed literature that previous injury is by far the most robust factor related to future injury. With this fact in mind, it should make us feel somewhat uncomfortable as rehabilitationists that those with a previous injury, even after completing rehabilitation, are at the greatest risk of subsequent injury. . . .

Is the Present Day Athlete Prepared for the Initiation of Athletic Performance Enhancement Training?Is the Present Day Athlete Prepared for the Initiation of Athletic Performance Enhancement Training?
Robert Panariello MS, PT, ATC, CSCS
The lack of early age athletic "preparation" as well as the common occurrence of youth athletic "sports specialization" is presently an all too common theme in the United States. The dream of a college scholarship and perhaps an ensuing professional payday appears to often be the incentive for such early sport specialization. However, too early a sport specialization does have its consequences. An example of such a consequence is the 12-year-old baseball pitcher whom I recently rehabilitated after arthroscopic elbow surgery. According to his father "this young man is going to be the next Roger Clemens". Obviously the father did not realize that throughout Roger Clemens athletic career, this Hall of Fame caliber pitcher never had elbow surgery. My time and experiences with this young athlete was my incentive to write this article. . . .

Audio Interview - Gray Cook updates the Joint by Joint ApproachAudio Interview - Gray Cook updates the Joint by Joint Approach
Anthony Renna asked Gray to update the Joint by Joint Approach a few months back on the Strength Coach Podcast. Ask Gray a question, get a 30 minute answer. Kidding Gray! It was a fantastic explanation and really takes you through his thought process so I annoyed Anthony enough he finally let me use it. Anyway, this is a must listen interview and I absolutely wanted to be able to share it with all of you. . . . keep reading

Super StiffnessSuper Stiffness
Stuart McGill, Professor of Spine Biomechanics
At a gymnastics or martial arts meet, or at a weightlifting competition, listen to the coaches advice to the athlete -- Stay tight! This means to maintain stiffness. Being stiff ensures that there will be minimal energy losses as forces are transmitted through the linkages. Optimal performance requires stability, and stability results from stiffness. Stiffness in the body results from muscular co-contraction. Used properly, it will assist in getting through "sticking points", enhance whole body strength and speed. Be stiff, and be compliant. Knowing the difference and when to be one or the other is a major way to improving performance. . . .

A Joint-By-Joint Approach to TrainingA Joint-By-Joint Approach to Training
Mike Boyle MA, ATC
In a recent conversation about the effect of training on the body, Cook produced one of the most lucid thought processes I have ever heard. Gray and I were discussing the findings of the Functional Movement Screen (www.functionalmovement.com), the needs of the different joints of the body, and how the function of the joints relates to training. One of the beauties of the Functional Movement Screen is that the screen allows us to distinguish between issues of stability and those of mobility. Cook's thoughts were simple and led me to realize that the future of training may be a joint-by-joint approach rather than a movement-based approach. . . .

Athlete Autonomy and Self-Discovery: Are We Coaching Our Athletes Too Much?Athlete Autonomy and Self-Discovery: Are We Coaching Our Athletes Too Much?
The sights and sounds of organized group training fascinate us. Whether from military drills or choreographed Broadway shows, we attach value to seeing lots of athletes moving at once, doing the same activities and making noise. Many coaches believe that team training, especially if organized in an overly regimented fashion, will lead to more profound training adaptations. Watching and counting every repetition, yelling cues and instructions whenever possible, is considered exceptional, energetic coaching. However, are athletes actually benefitting from such overt instruction and monitoring? . . . keep reading

Reverse Total Shoulder Thoughts
I've recently treated a number of reverse total shoulder replacements. I've always found the surgery interesting because of the reversal to the ball and socket joint. In school we learned that this procedure is elected in place of a traditional shoulder replacement when the rotator cuff is compromised. A total shoulder replacement would be more for joint degeneration. Whereas a reverse total shoulder would be for a combination of joint and rotator cuff degeneration. . . . keep reading

Exercise of the Week - PRI Step Down
Joe Heiler PT
This is an exercise I use quite often as I transition from PRI floor based exercises to standing. The exercise really forces the athlete to use their available hip internal rotation mobility and stability, and is a great lead in to single leg squats and single leg deadlifts where pelvis control is a must. . . .

Exercise of the Week - Adductor Plate SlidesExercise of the Week - Adductor Plate Slides
Andy Barker PT
I've used this exercise within rehab for a variety of different injuries. It's a great exercise to use as to incorporate open chain frontal plane resistance, often hard to replicate. I particularly like it for MCL (medial collateral ligament) rehab, to load the MCL in the valgus pattern, and use it during rehab with such injuries as soon as possible. . . .

UE Rolling Patterns with Manual Facilitation
Joe Heiler PT
Nice technique I picked up from Charlie Weingroff a few years back, and works quicker than anything else I've tried when rolling is truly because of a motor control deficit. There definitely needs to be a bit of coaching done ahead of time on how the patient should be using their eyes and head to lead the pattern but otherwise pretty quick and easy... . . .
