Plays of the Week
- I’ll be speaking at the Sports Section of the American Physical Therapy Associations annual meeting next week in Las Vegas, still a chance to register and if you can make it. More info at the SPTS website.
- What do you guys think of this? Biofreeze, the popular analgesic balm, has a study saying that it provides benefits similar to ice and reduces blood flow.
- Let’s take a step back and read Eric Cressey’s post on how to select the right weight when performing resistance training, an important and overlooked topic.
- There is a new ACL survey being held by Dr. Lynn Snyder-Mackler and the Oslo-Delaware Research Collaboration. They are asking for your help in shaping the field of rehabilitation after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury. We, like all of you, are finding that success is defined differently across and within disciplines. Surgeons, physical therapists and researchers use different measurements to define success after ACL injury or reconstruction, making outcome comparison between interventions very difficult. As a part of the NIH funded collaboration, "Dynamic Stability in the ACL Deficient Knee" between the University of Delaware and the Oslo University Hospital, they want to ask clinicians and researchers how they define success to establish a consensus set of measures and criterion values. The survey takes only 10 minutes and you’d be making a big difference for our progression. The group is polling the members of the Sports Section of the APTA, members of the American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM), the European Society of Sports Traumatology, and the Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy (ESSKA). Your assistance in this endeavor is greatly appreciated. Click here to view the survey –> In pursuit of successful management of ACL injuries
Video of the Week
This video made me laugh, I just hauled one of those giant swing set/clubhouse things for my yard across town and was scared to death it was going to fall out of the truck. Call me crazy, but I wouldn’t have tried moving a piano!
Enjoy the holiday week.
