Contact Me

Before your fill out the below contact form, PLEASE READ.  I receive A LOT of email from this website.  I read 100% of these emails, everyone, I promise.  Naturally, I can not respond to everyone, though I do try and I mostly do.  That being said, here are some things that I will not respond to:

  • I will not answer questions regard a specific injury or offer any medial advice.  Sorry, just can’t do this over email.  I recommend you see a doctor and/or a physical therapist for examination.  If you have seen one but are not happy with your care, seek a second opinion, everyone in the medical community welcomes second opinions.  Also, my practice is not currently open to patients.
  • I currently am not accepting any students, interns, or offer any type of shadowing experience.  I recommend you join my online continuing education mentorship program or visiting for seminars and educational products of mine.  I would still love to have a fellowship program but have to fight some politics to get it set up.  One day.  If I do open up for any of these experiences in the future, it will be announced on this website.
  • I receive a lot of messages from students etc. that are looking for help finding references for projects and papers, I can’t answers all of these.  I recommend you search pubmed, everything I would tell you to look at can easily be found with a simple literature review.
  • Thanks for understanding but I would rather you know this up front than not hear back from me.

Also, by using this contact form to ask me a question you are agreeing to allow me permission to repost your question with an answer in a future post or newsletter.  Thanks!

    Hey Mike,
    I am a 3rd year DPT student at Pitt. I am in the process of going through your Optimal Shoulder Perfomrance DVDs. They are fantastic by the way. In one of the lectures, I heard you talk about how important the elbow drive (pulling with the glove side) is of the lead arm in order to develop velocity. Growing up playing baseball, I was taught the same thing. However, after having a clinical experience where I primarily rehabed baseball players, I have come on board with the teaching that you want to avoid the elbow drive and just keep the glove out in front. The rationalization is two-fold: 1. All of the pitcher’s force is then directed in a straight line toward home and not as much rotationally (This should improve accuracy without lost velocity). 2. The elbow drive adds another force of pull that probably increases the strain on the shoulder and elbow (There are no studies to refute or support this idea as of yet). Coincidentially or not, every baseball player that we treated utilized the lead elbow drive. Also, the pitching coach that we worked with said that he never noticed a velocity drop once changing this mechanic.

    Are these rationales off base? Do you think there is any correlation between lead elbow drive and rotator cuff or elbow valgus load? Would that be a worthwhile study?

    I learn so much from your site. Thank you very much.

    I was reading that you offer an online continuing education program on the shoulder. It said your next available course is January 2011. I was wandering if the course is still available to take.

    Thank you,
