Challenges of Home Exercise Execution, Do You Really Have Sagittal Plane? and PT in 25 Years – Movement Debrief Episode 17

Just in case you missed last night’s Movement Debrief Episode 17, here is a copy of the video and audio for your listening pleasure.

Here’s what we talked about:

  • What makes getting patients to do their home exercises challenging.
  • Strategies I implement to increase adherence.
  • How I determine when sagittal plane control is adequate.
  • What I think PT will be like 25 years from now.

Major thanks to Dani Overcash, an awesome writer in her own right, for asking a really great question.

Enjoy.

How to Treat Pain with Sitting – A Case Study

Case studies are much more valuable than many give credit for.

It is this type of study that can often lead to sweeping changes in how further research is conducted, often create paradigm shifts in their own right.

After all, there was only one Patient H.M.

One thing that I wish I saw more in case studies was the clinician’s thought process. Why did they elect to do this treatment over that, what were they thinking when they saw this? How do they tick?

I was fortunate enough to have an online client of mine suggest to that I make her a case study, and it was a very rewarding experience on both fronts.

My hope is that you can see how a clinician thinks first-hand, and see the challenges a clinician faces…

When you can’t work with your hands.

90/90 Hip Lift – A Movement Deep Dive

The Fundamental Rehab Technique

It’s a classic that does so much more than the naked eye can see. This round of “Movement Deep Dive” focuses on the 90/90 hip lift, and some of my favorite variances off that move.

I hope you have your pen and paper handy to take notes, because this video is a long one.

If videos aren’t your thing, I’ve provided a modified transcript below. I would recommend both watching the video and reading the post to get the most out of the material.

Learn on!

Course Notes: PRI Postural Visual Integration: The 2nd Viewing

Would You Look at That

It was a little over a year ago that I took PRI vision and was blown away. A little bit after that, I went through the PRIME program to become an alternating and reciprocal warrior.

I had learned so much about what they do in PRI vision that I was feeling somewhat okay with implementation.

Then my friends told me about the updates they made in this course.

I seriously just took it
I seriously just took it

 

I signed up as quickly as possibly, and am glad I did. This course has reached a near-perfect flow and the challenging material is much more digestible.

Don’t expect to know the what’s and how’s of Ron and Heidi’s operation. And realistically, you probably don’t need to.

Your job as a clinician is to take advantage of what the visual system can do, implement that into a movement program, and refer out as needed. This blog will try to explain the connection between these two systems.

If you want more of the nitty-gritty programming, I strongly recommend reading my first round with this course. Otherwise, you might be a little lost.

Let’s do it. Continue reading “Course Notes: PRI Postural Visual Integration: The 2nd Viewing”

Smooth Talker: Nonthreatening PRI Patient Education

I recently had the pleasure and honor of speaking at the annual PRC conference at this past weekend’s Interdisciplinary Integration. I happened to have my younger older brother Connor Ryan record the event.

We unfortunately had some technical difficulties, so a few bits are missing. But you’ll get the gist from the videos below.
