Today's Quick Links are from In Touch PT, Fitness Pain Free, and Aaron Swanson.
Are you using HVLA for acute lumbar conditions? Dr. Harrison Vaughn is wondering why not in one of his latest posts. The research says you should. Research also says it only takes a few hours to be competent at lumbar thrust manipulation. I tend to use MDT first unless someone is very apprehensive of performing repeated motions, and has positive expectations of a thrust manipulation. Regardless of the Tx, I still teach MDT based HEP to maintain the short lived gains.
Are you still on the fence about taking the SFMA? Dr. Dan Pope, a regular contributor to my blog for the public, Physio Answers, recently took SFMA Level 1. Here are his thoughts. Like any good review there are pros and cons. Dan, you need to work on those DNs! Unless you're symmetrically DN.
Do you love Quick Links? Dr. Aaron Swanson does a monthly version with a decent amount of info and from sources I do not regularly follow. Check them out!
Remember that #iastm technique is on sale! $30 off the normal price, with $10 discount on EDGE/EDGEility Tools and a free pouch, which is $20 more in savings!
