How Pecs Can Help Shoulder Pain: A Mentorship Session

I recently did a mentorship session with my good friend, movement consultation partner, functional medicine guru, and #bae, Dave Rascoe from Method Strength. Dave and I collaborated on a client of his, and we used one of our mentorship sessions to talk through my decision-making process. We talked about a variety of topics, including theoretical underpinnings that influenced my decisions, the assessment process, exercise selection, and so much more. If you like what you see, want to improve your coaching skills, want to make better clinical decisions with your patients, and so much more, you can join my personalized mentorship program by filling out the form below the video.

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.
