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 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.

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.

Functional Stability Training of the Core – Live Seminar with Eric Cressey and Myself

It is with great pleasure that Eric Cressey and I are announcing a new live seminar that we are conducting this November.  We will be speaking on a new collaborative system that we are putting together for rehabilitation and performance training, called Functional Stability Training, and how to apply it specifically to the core.  I have been alluding to this over the past year or so in many of my articles and the system is a concept I have been thinking about for a long time.


Functional Stability Training

In order to function properly our joints need to be mobile, but control of this mobility is often less than optimal.  Unfortunately, this stabilization is often overlooked in the design or rehabilitation and performance programs.  Traditional program design relies too much on stretching what is tight and strengthening what is weak.  We are missing the boat on stabilization.

Basically, Functional Stability Training is how I approach building my rehabilitation programs for injured people and how Eric and I build corrective exercise progressions for performance training.  It is the integration of physical therapy and performance enhancement training, the integration of exercises and manual techniques, and the integration between mobility, strengthening, and dynamic stabilization.

If you have taken my course at or watched Eric and I’s Optimal Shoulder Performance DVD, then you know a little but about the basics of Functional Stability Training as it applies to the shoulder.  We are going to expand on that even more.


Functional Stability Training for the Core

This seminar will specifically discuss Functional Stability Training for the Core.  This isn’t the standard exercise progression for the core with sit ups, infomercial gimmicks and medicine ball tosses.  Rather, this is training the core to work the way it was intended to work – to provide stabilization of the trunk while simultaneously moving the extremities during functional activities.

Once you have trained the core to function properly on it’s own, functional exercise positions and progressions can occur.  Far too often we are all guilty of skipping steps or not mastering the basics before moving to advanced progressions.  This will only assure the reinforcement of poor movement patterns and lead to future muscle imbalances.

The progressions discussed are applicable to rehabilitation, injury prevention, and performance enhancement programs.  For the rehabilitation specialist, the information will help you get away from traditional passive treatments and low back rehab exercise.  For the fitness and performance specialists, the information will help you achieve new progress with your clients to maximize functional and athletic potential.

There are a lot of “core training” programs out there.  Functional Stability Training of the Core is not intended to swamp you with the basics like non-functional anatomy of the spine.  Rather, this program quickly gets into technique and will show you a simplified approach to think about the core based on the TRUE FUNCTION of the core.  Simple, yet highly effective.

The seminar will be held at Cressey Performance in Hudson, MA (not too far outside Boston) on Sunday November 20, 2011.

Here is our current agenda:

  • Functional Stability Training – An integrated approach to rehabilitation and performance training – Reinold
  • Recent Advances in Core Performance – Understand the concept of Functional Stability Training for the Core, true function of the spine, and how this impacts injuries, rehab, and training – Reinold
  • Maintaining a Training Effect in Spite of Common Lumbar Spine and Lower Extremity Injuries – Outlines the causes and symptoms of several common injuries encountered in the lower extremity, and how to train around these issues to keep clients/athletes fit during rehabilitation – Cressey
  • Understanding and Controlling Extension in Athletes – Looks into the causes of and problems with excessive lumbar extension, anterior pelvic tilt, and rib flairs in athletes – Cressey
  • LAB – Assessing Core Movement Quality:  Understanding where to begin with Functional Stability Training exercises for the core – Reinold
  • LAB – A Dynamic Progression of Core Performance Exercises  – Progression from simple core control to advanced rehab and training techniques – Reinold
  • LAB Understanding and Controlling Extension in Athletes – Progresses on the previous lecture with specific technique and coaching cues for exercises aimed toward those with these common issues – Cressey
  • LAB Advanced Stability: Training Power Outside the Sagittal Plane – Traditional power training programs are predominantly focused on the sagittal plane, but in most athletic endeavors – especially rotational sports – power must be displayed in other planes of motion – Cressey
