    Should You Cue to Pinch Your Shoulder Blades Back? - #AMR332

    Should You Cue to Pinch Your Shoulder Blades Back? - #AMR332

    A common debate in physical therapy is whether we should cue people to “pinch their scapulas” together during exercises.
    I don’t really think there should be a debate…
    Here’s why we don’t use that cue and what we do instead.

    Rehabilitation After UCL Repair with Internal Brace - #AMR330

    Here’s an update on our experience so far, some clinical pearls on rehabilitating these athletes, and the differences we sometimes see with traditional Tommy John UCL reconstruction.

Very knowledgeable in ortho/sports performance

PT for over 24 years and work in the Ortho outpatient world. I enjoy all the topics discussed. Great energy with his staff and love the banter with his crew. Smart and innovative idea with podcast. Appreciate all the dedication to help other PT’s Mike and his staff.

Very helpful

I searched for info about internal rotation behind the back and came across episode 280, which I found very helpful. I fractured my lesser tuberosity and am having trouble regaining ROM. The episode provided me with a more informed way to discuss the issue with both my therapist and my doctor. Thanks very much, Mike.
