Below is another awesome infographic via Brad Beer - While it mostly applies to the lay person and runner, clinicians should take note as well. We don't often refer out for marked swelling, or initiate strength or balance training early enough.

[ANKLE SPRAIN INJURIES] 5️⃣THINGS TO DO _ πŸ‘‰πŸ»Ankle sprains are often overlooked by runners as being something that will ‘just sort itself out’ πŸ€• _ ☝🏻while this approach may get someone back out running it can also come with its shortcomings: I’ve seen some poor post ankle sprain outcomes when this approach is adopted _ πŸ‘‰πŸ» so here’s my top 5️⃣ post ankle sprain tips to help you get back to running with time delays or ongoing problems πŸ‘€ _ 1️⃣. If there is marked swelling, or sprain has occurred in a young person plain film images (X-rays) are typically best practice to assess for any possible avulsion fractures (small bits of bone that may have been ‘pulled’ off by ligament) 🦴 . 2️⃣. Ice for up to 15mins, and repeat hourly (compression and elevation also good) ❄️ . 3️⃣. 50% of ankle sprains can go onto develop further problems, CAI (chronic ankle instability) -so beware of DIY ankle sprain rehab⚠️ . 4️⃣. Balance (proprioception: your body’s ability to know where it is in space) is affected by injury. It must be retrained to high level for runners, and in general an even higher level if you are a trail runner . 5️⃣. Strength work for below the knee musculature is vital following an ankle sprain: combination of heavy loads and lighter loads with high reps generally needed πŸ‹️‍♂️ _ πŸ“ŒTAKE HOME: look after your ankle sprain by being aware of these tips & get back out there safely as soon as possible ✅ _ ‼️If you know a runner battling with an ankle sprain that this can help please tag or share it with them ✋πŸ»πŸƒ‍♂️ _ ❓Q’s and comments are welcome #runpainfree . . . #physio #physicaltherapy #strength #rehabilitation #sportsscience #resistance #training #marathon #marathontraining #runstrong #sportsphysio

Stretching a muscle with high tone works, AFTER the muscle fatigues or you stretch long enough to change the perception of stretch. That's not normally a rapid process as the more the nervous system perceives stretch, muscles tend to increase in tone to fight the passive stretch.


via Tendinopathy Rehab


Injections such as steroid and platelet-rich plasma continue to be popular for tendinopathy, and there are other emerging injections such as the high-volume injection. Take a listen to the latest episode of 'Talking Tendons' where I discuss the latest evidence.


If you're interested in delving deeper into the conversation I will be hosting a 1 day seminar in Melbourne on the 4th May 2019 titled Injection Therapy in Tendinopathy: Art & Science.

We are lucky to be joined by both international and national speakers including Dr Brooke Coombes (Physiotherapist), Dr John Orchard (Sports Physician), Dr Glen Whittacker (Podiatrist), Dr Dean Samaras (Podiatric Surgeon), Prof Dylan Morrissey (Physiotherapist), Dr Otto Chan (Radiologist), Dr Hans Tol (Sports Physician), A/Prof Jane Fitzpatrick (Sports Physician) and A/Prof David Connell (Radiologist).

Tightness isn't "short" muscles. Stretching just leads to fatigue may reduce power/performance. The feeling of tightness is much better treated with strengthening/loading strategies.




I just finished a Modern Manual Therapy Seminar for Northern Physical Therapy in Lyndonille, VT - great course and amazing participants!


In this episode, Erson talks about a recent case where a fatigued mother of a newborn has TMJ, Headache, and/or central sensitization type complaints. Is it something else?
