Mike Baum PT, CFMT

Mike Baum is the next friend we get to speak with in our series of interviews. He is a practice owner in Junction City, OR that probably treats a more wide-variety of patients than most of us on any given day. Talk about a well-integrated clinician... with a background in multiple different manual therapy approaches; as well as PNF, he could probably make your head spin if you tried to keep up with him in the clinic (at least that's what I've been told). So tune in and learn a lot from one of the best human beings out there!

Interview with Ray Klepper PT, DPT – part deux

During this interview, Ray and I discuss some of the physiology behind blood metrics like cholesterols, triglycerides, blood glucose and insulin; as well as chronic diseases such as diabetes, metabolic disorders, etc. that can all be changed (for the better) through an appropriate diet/lifestyle.  Our conversation centers mainly around the low carbohydrate-high fat realm.  For those of you somewhat familiar with this topic, you may have heard of "keto" or "ketogenic diet".  This is just a more strict form of low carb-high fat. If you are at all interested in health/wellness and newer research that has been coming out recently (i.e. fat isn't bad, cholesterol is not the devil we though it was, saturated fats are not harmful, etc.), then you won't want to miss this interview.  Or, if you disagree with us, please voice your opinions on the comment section of this blog because I would thoroughly enjoy learning your opinions!

Brett Windsor PT, PhDc, MPA, OCS, FAAOMPT

Brett Windsor is our guest for this interview. Talk about a great guy with a lot of knowledge and wisdom to share. It's likely no coincidence he is the CEO of the North American Institute of Orthopaedic Manual Therapy (NAIOMT) and Director of Clinical Excellence for ATI Physical Therapy. Listen in and pick up on a lot of great things from Brett. Also exciting, this is the first post that I'm announcing we are now listed on iTunes and Stitcher as a podcast! Another great way to access content from our blog. Follow the links on this post and be able to listen to this stuff in an easier way!

Talo-navicular dorsiflexion

Have you ever worked to improve ankle dorsiflexion by mobilizing the talocrural joint and stretching the calf of your patient, but still felt like there was some limitations? In this video, Dr. Thomason demonstrates how dorsiflexion at the talo-navicular joint can be limiting overall dorsiflexion, and how to mobilize this dysfunction. Enjoy!   Matt
