Bridging the Gap From Rehab to Performance

I’m really excited to announce that the online version of the Champion Bridging the Gap From Rehab to Performance seminar that we had up in Boston last month is now available!

We see so many people at Champion that have rehabbed elsewhere for months and are still doing 3×10 of straight leg raises.  It’s no wonder that studies show persistent weakness after rotator cuff repair, ACL reconstruction, and other surgeries.  We aren’t bridging the gap!  

That’s why we wanted to put this together to show how we focus on acute rehab, but understand the process to transition them to performance-based activities.

On the flip side of the equation, the assessment process and program design for someone recovering from an injury that wants to transition to strength and conditioning is also different and important to understand.  

We’ll show how we integrate strength and conditioning concepts into our rehab programs, and how we assess and design strength and conditioning programs for people follow injury.

To me, this is the future our professions need to head towards.  We can’t just perform quad sets, straight leg raises and mini squats!

 

Bridging the Gap From Rehab to Performance

champion bridging the gap from rehab to performanceThe online version of the Champion Bridging the Gap From Rehab to Performance contains 7 modules and over 6 hours of content designed to help you build better rehab and post-injury training programs.  We’ll cover:

  • Applying Strength and Conditioning Principles into Acute Rehab – Lenny Macrina
  • Integrating Advanced Rehab and Early Strength and Conditioning – Dave Tilley
  • Integrating Performance Therapy to Optimize Performance – Mike Reinold
  • Live Q&A Session with the Rehab Team
  • Performance Training Post Injury: The Assessment Process – Rob Sutton
  • Performance Training Post Injury: Program Design – Kiefer Lammi
  • Live Q&A and Demonstration of the Assessment Process and Discussion on Program Design

Personal trainers and strength coaches will benefit from learning how we integrate rehabilitation concepts into our programs to properly assess, customize programs, and advanced people into strength and conditioning programs.  Likewise, rehabilitation specialists will benefit from learning how we integrate appropriate strength and conditioning concepts through the acute and advanced phases of rehabilitation.

Functional Stability Training: Optimizing Movement is Now Available!

I am super excited to announce that Eric Cressey and I have just released our latest collaboration, Functional Stability Training: Optimizing Movement!  Many are familiar with the Functional Stability Training series of products that Eric and I have released, and we are happy to add the fourth program to this popular series.

We are really proud of this new product and know that you’ll be able to better understand and optimize movement in your patients and clients after viewing this program!

In Functional Stability Training: Optimizing Movement, Eric and I discuss why and how we focus on optimizing movement, then show how we integrate these concepts into our assessments, rehabilitation, and strength training programs.

 

Functional Stability Training: Optimizing Movement

functional stability training optimizing movementFunctional Stability Training: Optimizing Movement is designed to help you enhance your rehabilitation, fitness, and sports performance programing by enhancing movement patterns.  By addressing alignment, strength, mobility, and dynamic motor control, you can maximize your rehabilitation and training programs to reach optimal performance.

The body is an amazing thing.  It adapts extremely well to stress and daily demands to improve efficiency of the body.  In essence, the body is excellent at moving from point A to point B.  Unfortunately, the body often tries to find the path of least resistance.  Imbalances in mobility, strength, and dynamic stability can result in compensatory patterns.

Sometimes “efficient” does not mean “optimal.”

FST Optimizing Movement aims to help formulate rehabilitation and training programs designed to optimize how well the body moves.

Eric and I share our thoughts and strategies on:

  • Why poor movement patterns occurs
  • What we consider optimal movement
  • How poor movement relates to common injuries
  • How to assess movement patterns
  • How to design programs designed to enhance movement
  • How to regress, progress, and coach exercises to optimize movement

 

 

Save $30 During Our Special Launch Sale

To celebrate the launch of Functional Stability Training: Optimizing Movement, Eric and I are offering $30 off the program now through Sunday June 19th at midnight EST.  Don’t miss out on this great deal on our amazing new program.  Click below to learn more and start optimizing movement today!

My Online Knee Seminar is Here!

After many years in the making, I am super excited to announce that my online program teaching you exactly how I evaluate and treat the knee is now available!

Many of my readers have taken my online shoulder program and LOVED it. The testimonials speak wonders. I am humbled yet proud of how well received that program has been over the years. When I first started the program, I had no idea what to expect, but I think many people agreed with me at the time that online education was the future.

Not a month has gone by since I started ShoulderSeminar.com that people haven’t asked me “when is the knee version coming out?”

Well, today is the day!

 

Recent Advances in the Evidence-Based Evaluation and Treatment of the Knee

reinold macrina online knee seminar

I have teamed up with my co-owner and Director of PT at Champion, Lenny Macrina, to build an online program that teaches you exactly how we evaluate and treat the knee. Together, we’ve put together what we think is an amazing resource for rehabilitation specialists.

The program includes 7 modules of detailed information on anatomy, basic science, healing responses, evaluation, treatment progressions, nonoperative rehabilitation, surgical techniques, and postoperative rehabilitation.

You’ll learn exactly how we approach:

  • Clinical Evaluation of the Knee
  • Treatment Progressions for the Knee
  • Anterior Cruciate Ligament
  • Patellofemoral
  • Meniscus
  • Articular Cartilage
  • Osteoarthritis

evaluation and treatment of the knee

Best of all, you can learn at your own pace in the comfort of your own home. No more nodding off in the back of a room and losing an entire weekend. I am a firm believer that you will learn more and be able to apply the information much better when learning in small chunks at your own pace. Finish the program in a few days or several weeks, it’s up to you!

Each module contains a video introducing the material, a detailed presentation on the topic, several journal articles that we hand selected to learn the material, and discussion questions. This is an in depth course that will take your understanding of the knee to the next level.

CEU applications have been submitted to the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy for approval with several states. The course is approved for 22.5 hours of CEU credit through the NATA for Athletic Trainers. We provide all the information needed if you need to apply to another board for approval.

Upcoming Seminar at Champion: Bridging the Gap From Rehab to Performance

I am really excited to announce that we will be hosting our second annual seminar at Champion PT and Performance in Boston, MA!  We want to offer a new seminar each year that will be of interest to rehabilitation and fitness specialists.  

This year, we will be discussing Bridging the Gap from Rehab to Performance, and the agenda is looking awesome.  I’m really excited about the seminar!

I really hope to see you at the seminar!

 

Bridging the Gap from Rehab to Performance

bridging the gap from rehab to performance seminar

Traditional rehabilitation programs following injury or surgery have focused on restoring basic function to the involved joint or tissue.  As the physical demands of our patients continue to increase, the rehabilitation process must consider incorporating a more comprehensive approach to restoring not only function, but optimal performance.  By integrating strength and conditioning principles into the rehabilitation process, rehabilitation specialists can better prepare the patient for returning to full activity.

As the rehabilitation phase advances, a comprehensive system to progress from traditional rehabilitation to functional strength and conditioning programs must be followed.  Too often the transition between rehabilitation and strength and conditioning is not seamless or designed to continue to optimize performance, while ensuring progress.

In this seminar, myself and the team at Champion PT and Performance will show how we optimize function and performance throughout the rehabilitation process and learn how to safely and effectively transition people from injury recovery to advanced strength and conditioning programs.

Personal trainers and strength coaches will benefit from learning how we integrate rehabilitation concepts into our programs to properly assess, customize programs, and advanced people into strength and conditioning programs.  Likewise, rehabilitation specialists will benefit from learning how we integrate appropriate strength and conditioning concepts through the acute and advanced phases of rehabilitation.

Surprise! I’m Starting a Podcast!

mike reinold podcastI have been alluding to this a little bit over the last several weeks, but I am busy in the background getting ready to start my very own podcast.  I’m kind of late to the party, to be honest.  I’m not sure why, but I’m overdue and really looking forward to starting one!

I’ve been listening to as many podcasts as I could lately in an attempt to figure out how I want to structure the show.  I think I am going to focus the show around asking me questions and keep it shorter in length, like 10-20 minutes, so it’s easily to digest.

What do you think?

 

#AskMikeReinold

What I am thinking is that I will get together with my team at Champion and answer a few reader questions each week.  My Inner Circle Live Q&A sessions are always very popular so I want to bring this to an even larger audience.

I may have the occasional podcast revolving around a specific topic, as well as some interviews, but do you really want to hear me interview someone that every other podcast has already interviewed?!?

Rather, I want to have a more candid experience with my team at Champion.  I want you to feel part of the team as we sit around and talk.  To me, this is where the best learning occurs – when you just sit around and talk.

I’m open to ideas, so if you have any other podcasting suggestions or things you want to see, please comment on this article below.  (I need a better title for the show too ha ha!)

 

I Need Your Help!  Ask Me Anything!

I need questions to get started!  If you want to ask me a question, please fill out the form below or ask me on Twitter using the #AskMikeReinold hastag [Click Here to Tweet].  I’ll keep an eye on that hashtag!

Thanks!  Can’t wait!
