Top 5 Blog Posts of 2017


Happy New Year Everyone! I have been on vacation for most of the holidays, out of town, so this post is a few days late, but better late than never! As usual, we had a ton of great blog posts from The MMT Team. Here are the Top 5 MMT Blog Posts of 2017 in case you missed them.

  • most manual therapists (myself included a long time ago) just beat the tar out of frozen shoulders
  • you can't rush true tissue extensibility/length changes any more than you can rush hypertrophy
  • try this Novel Mobilization for a pain free tone reduction which enables the patient to move in a greater range threat free
  • this technique could be a good starter for lateral shifts that are too painful to accept load
  • I used it successfully on an ipsilateral lumbar lateral shift with pain below the knee, normally having very poor prognosis
  • I've since used it as the LCAP - Lateral Chain Arm Pull Test to quantify single limb stance stability and lateral chain strength
  • Dr. Dennis Treubig, star MMT Blogger and inventor of The Knee Terminator as usual dominates our Top posts of the year
  • do you agree or disagree with his list items?
  • it's a build up to why The Knee Terminator is a no-brainer for your post op knee patients, but as such, it was still very close to the top post of the year!
  • honestly, if you use the prone knee stretch for LLLD stretching, you're somewhat of a sadist
  • this used to be one of my favorite go to pin and stretch type techniques; I used to hammer away at it until motion improved
  • this variation gets the same results, but is much faster and is pain free
