In the manual therapy video below, NAIOMT's Bill Temes demonstrates a thorough assessment and treatment of the talocrural joint complex.
It's ski season! But all that slope side fun means we'll probably start seeing more knee pain in the clinic. In the manual therapy video below, NAIOMT faculty member Stacy Soappman demonstrates how we can assess and treat the superior tibiofibular joint.
In the manual therapy video below, NAIOMT's Stacy Soappman demonstrates a mobilization of the first MTP joint.
Earlier this week, NAIOMT faculty member Steve Allen discussed a real-life case scenario of an athlete that experienced an inversion ankle injury in the post Delayed Diagnosis, Delayed Care. In it, he referred to the the Talar Swing Test as being beneficial to addressing her subsequent presentations in the year that followed the injury. Take a look at the video below as he walks through the test, and let us know if you have questions.
The elbow complex consists of three joints, forming a bridge between the shoulder and the hand, and it's an exciting and challenging region to treat.
Don’t you love being a PT? Who else cares that a blocked, silent culprit of a joint can lead to consequential injury up or down the chain of the homosapien? Or that a hypermobile joint is distorting my sympathetic nervous system, making me most vulnerable to injury? Who else has that training? We as PTs live for the end feel! Takes “sweat equity” to master for sure. But how rewarding. It is exclusively our science, yes? Pathokinesiology. I want to share this real- life case scenario with you. Here we go!
In the manual therapy video below, NAIOMT faculty member Stacy Soappman (a.k.a. ManipGirl on Twitter!) demonstrates talocrural distraction.
In the manual therapy video below, NAIOMT faculty member and teacher of our Injured Runner Specialty Course Steve Allen, PT, OCS, COMT, FAAOMPT shares a tip for working with patients who encounter running injuries.
How does orthopaedic manual physical therapy work? The available evidence strongly suggests that it is by a neurophysiologic affect. (1) The differences of effect between mobilization and manipulation techniques have not been consistent, or clear. The specific neurophysiologic mechanism and where it is occurring is also not well understood.
