EPISODE TRANSCRIPTION
INTRODUCTION
Hey everyone, Alan here, Chief Operating Officer here at ICE. Before we get into today's episode, I'd like to introduce our sponsor, Jane, a clinic management software and EMR with a human touch. Whether you're switching your software or going paperless for the first time ever, the Jane team knows that the onboarding process can feel a little overwhelming. That's why with Jane, you don't just get software, you get a whole team. Including in every Jane subscription is their new award-winning customer support available by phone, email, or chat whenever you need it, even on Saturdays. You can also book a free account setup consultation to review your account and ensure that you feel confident about going live with your switch. And if you'd like some extra advice along the way, you can tap into a lovely community of practitioners, clinic owners, and front desk staff through Jane's community Facebook group. If you're interested in making the switch to Jane, head on over to jane.app/switch to book a one-on-one demo with a member of Jane's support team. Don't forget to mention code IcePT1MO at the time of sign up for a one month free grace period on your new Jane account.
ALAN FREDENDALL
Good morning, PTonICE Daily Show. Happy Friday morning. I hope your morning is off to a great start. My name is Alan, happy to be your host today here on the PT on ICE Daily Show. It is Fitness Athlete Friday. We talk all things CrossFit, powerlifting, Olympic weightlifting, endurance athletes. For that patient, athlete or client of yours that is recreationally active, Fridays are all about topics for that person. We are finishing out deltoid week here at ICE, so we're talking all things shoulder, in particular the deltoid muscle, exercises for the deltoid, manual therapy for the deltoid, so go back if you haven't been listening the rest of this week to all the episodes from all the other faculty, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, dry needling techniques, cupping techniques, exercises, modifications, importance of deltoid exercises for pregnant and postpartum moms, we've got it all. Plus, we have a whole bunch of great content on our Instagram page as well, related to the deltoid and all of those topics. Today on Fitness Athlete Friday, we're going to tackle the deltoid from its role in functional fitness. So in particular, we're going to be talking about vertical pressing. So we're going to talk about anatomical considerations of the deltoid as it relates to lifting weights overhead. We're going to talk about clinical considerations of why do we care about someone's deltoid when they come in for physical therapy treatment. And then we're going to finish talking about how we think you should actually train the deltoid with these patients and athletes in the clinic.
THE DELTOID: ANATOMICAL CONSIDERATIONS
So a brief anatomy overview to start. What are our considerations for the anatomy of the deltoid? We need to understand and recognize the deltoid muscle is large, it is designed, it is built for blunt force trauma. If we come away from social media
