Inner Circle and RehabWebinars.com Update
My next Inner Circle webinar will be tomorrow, Friday January 18th at 11:15 AM EST. We’ll be discussing tips on how to assess and treat shoulder impingement. There will be a bunch of great concepts that both the rehab and fitness groups will benefit from, including how to detect what type of impingement is occurring, what that means for us, how to get over the hump, and how to train around the issue in the meantime. Inner Circle members can log in to the Inner Circle Dashboard and sign up for the live event. If you can’t make it, don’t worry, I’ll get a recording of it up on the website within a few days. If you aren’t a member of my Inner Circle, click here to learn how to access this and all my past webinars for the price of a latte.

Part 4 discusses some of the postoperative complications, like anterior knee pain and loss of motion, including what to watch out for and how to get past them in rehab.

As many of you know, I have been working on an educational solution to teach people how to use instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) in their practice. You don’t need ultra-expensive tools, long seminars, or crazy certifications that add to thousands of dollars of expenses. That is crazy, it’s not that hard!
Well, I have some exciting news! The website isn’t ready yet, but I’ve teamed up with Erson Religioso of TheManualTherapist.com to collaborate on the educational material. I’ve been working on this for some time and admit that the IASTMtechnique.com project was always getting pushed back by bigger projects. With Erson’s help, we are going to get this project done and out their for you to access. Erson brings a ton of experience with IASTM and is going to make this even better!
Stay tuned for more information as we develop the website, we’ll be talking about this more over the next several months. In the meantime, head over to IASTMtechnique.com and enter your email to make sure you get all the updates and qualify for the special launch price, when it happens.
