How Poor Movement Creates Injury with Dr. Shirley Sahrmann
On episode 79 show I had the honor to sit down with one of the most influential people in the world of physical therapy – Shirley Sahrmann. Years ago, the physical therapy world was very much so a manual based treatment profession with very little skill in exercise. Shirley’s work over the past 6 decades has changed all this. She is credited with being one of the leaders in establishing the physical therapy profession as experts in the diagnosis and treatment of injuries through evaluation of movement (something called the movement system). This gives the PT a unique approach to helping athletes understand WHY injuries occur in the weight room and how to really go about fixing them the right way.

Shoulder Pain 101
In episode 71. Dr. Aaron Horschig goes in depth into the factors that create shoulder pain when lifting (anatomy, mobility, stability & biomechanics). If you would like to learn more about screening the shoulder to uncover your individual weak link that may have led to your pain, check out this blog article: https://squatuniversity.com/2018/08/04/how-to-screen-your-shoulder-pain/ To the question ‘what causes shoulder pain?’ The simplest answer is that pain is often the result of excessive stress or strain on the small structures that surround the shoulder joint. The normally harmonious shoulder complex can be derailed by one part malfunctioning (i.e. weak rotator cuff, poor passive shoulder stability). For the strength athlete, these forces are usually the result of cumulative micro-trauma due to three things: 1) Imbalances between the prime movers and prime stabilizers 2) Instability 3) Poor movement and lifting technique Big thank you to my sponsor Gainz Box!

Your MRI is NOT A Reflection of Your Back Pain!
In episode 68, Dr. Aaron Horschig breaks down why you shouldn't place your complete trust in MRI results for low back pain. Research has estimated that almost a third of healthy pain free 20-year-olds currently have a disc bulge in their spine! (Brinjikji W, Luetmer PH, Comstock B, et al. Systematic literature review of imaging features of spinal degeneration in asymptomatic populations. Am J Neuroradiol. 2015;36:811-16) This number increases 10% every decade, meaning 45-50% of people between the ages of 40-50 have a disc bulge but with no back pain at all. It is highly likely to have abnormal scary findings on the MRI if you’re above the age of 60 but many of these individuals have no low back pain at all. Can a disc bulge create back pain? Sure. But just because there is one that is picked up on an MRI does NOT necessarily mean it is the root cause of your pain. Check out these referenced articles:  Jensen MC, Brant-Zawadzki MN, Obuchowski N, et al. Magnetic resonance imaging of the lumbar spine in people without back pain. N Engl J Med. 1994;331(2):69-73 Carragee E, Alamin T, Cheng I, et al. Are first-time episodes of serious LBP associated with new MRI findings? Spine J. 2006; 6(6):624-35 Fukuda K & Kawakami G.

Knee Pain 101
Episode 2 of the show dives into the basics of WHY we develop knee pain as strength athletes. These injuries don't often come all at once (like when a football player tears his ACL) but instead are due to a culumination of micro-trauma sustained at the knee joint due to poor movement quality. Today we break down how to screen your body to find the underlying cause of WHY you developed knee pain using a method called the 'Joint-by-Joint' Approach.
