Top 5 Fridays! Top Recommended Reading Update 2017


If you have some extra time this holiday, you may want to catch up on some of my required readings. I often tell clinicians and patients alike to read some of these texts. Some are repeats of previous Recommended Reading posts, others are brand new.

  • my number one recommended text since it's been released, Todd Hargrove's book on movement, pain science education concepts is a must read for patients and clinician's alike
  • my full review is here
  • the kindle version is a steal, read it on your kindle, phone, or computer, it's about half the price of the text brand new!
  • I finished this recently on audiobook, and it's been worth every penny
  • not only has it improved my patient education on the importance of sleep, but it's been a game changer for how I view sleep, recovery and overall health
  • my mini review I posted recently is here
  • from a guy who used to practice Evidenced Based Grilling, if I can go mostly plant based, you and your patients can too
  • I take most documentaries with a grain of salt, but I couldn't beat genetics with what I thought was a healthy diet and exercise
  • my family has a history of hypertension, high cholesterol, and MI
  • turns out by going about 80% plant based diet and eliminating most of my animal based proteins changed my blood work significantly and improved my overall energy levels and recovery times
  • I ended getting certified in Plant Based Nutrition from E Cornell so I could better educate patients who were not responding to traditional PT
    • not everyone wants to hear it, but those who are open in general report feeling better, and many other health problems are often improved as well, like eczema, fatigue, etc
  • the book makes a compelling argument for why eating real food, and avoiding animal based protein is a great choice for anyone who wants to improve their health and prolong their life
  • not everyone is a hyper responder when it comes to dietary cholesterol as I was, but it's a good choice for those in persistent pain, as they often have a greater amount of comorbidities than those who recover from pain/injury
  • my number one resource for clinicians on Pain Science Education
  • Read a review on the course here, if you can't attend the course, or watch the courses by Adriaan Louw on MedBridge, the text is the next best resource!
If you purchase any of these texts from my links, thanks in advance for supporting MMT Blog. I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe holiday season! We'll be taking off until Jan 2nd, with intermittent posts here and there on the Top 5 UPS Podcasts, Top 5 Blog Posts, and Top 5 Vids of the year!
