Inner Circle Updates

My next Inner Circle webinar recording on “6 Keys to ACL Rehabilitation” will be available to view on November 28th.

In this presentation, I’ll go over the 6 key foundational principles that you need to understand to maximize your results with ACL rehab.  There are many surgical and patient variables that may speed up or slow down the standard rehab progression, however, you can build an optimal program by following these 6 principles.

In this webinar, I’m going to discuss:

  • The #1 complication after ACL rehab, prolonged weakness, and how to minimize this
  • The two most important things to focus on during the first week of rehabilitation
  • How to develop advanced strength programs and alter periodization schemes in the rehab setting
  • My simple, yet effective, criteria to return to activities.

My Last webinar recording on “How to Assess Thoracic Mobility” is available to watch.

This webinar covers:

  • The key things I look at to assess thoracic mobility
