Subcranial Shear Distraction, Affordable Care Act, and Slip ‘N Slide Fails
This week’s stuff you should read comes from Erson Religioso, the APTA, and the Greatist.com.
Inner Circle Update
We had a great first webinar last week on the influence of pelvis position on lower extremity stretching. Thanks for those in attendance and all the great questions at the end. The recorded webinar is now available (follow the link below). Be sure to log in first to view it or scroll down to the webinar archives from the Inner Circle dashboard:
The next webinar is also schedule for Tuesday July 24, 2012 at 11:00 AM EST. We’ll be talking about 3 ways to improve shoulder internal rotation stretching without stretching the posterior capsule (and without even stretching into IR!). You will like this one as we talk about different stretches, soft tissue techniques, and even rib and thoracic position. You can register for the webinar at the Inner Circle dashboard as well.
Erson Religioso shows a few great manual therapy techniques in a recent post, but one of my favorites was showing subcranial shear distraction. This is a “go-to” technique for me as I tend to see a lot of forward head posture (don’t we all???) and related dysfunction. Pay attention as Erson mentions he used soft tissue techniques first, which definitely provides a better combo.
The APTA has released a statement regarding the Affordable Care Act that created some news in the industry last week.
I can’t think of a better way to kick of the summer than a compilation of Slip ‘N Slide fails! Thanks to my friends at the Greatist.com!
