⁣“Rehab is training in the presence of injury” - Phil Glasgow 😍⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ Have anterior knee pain and still want to squat? Try a more hip dominant option like low bar squatting. ⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ Have hip pain and still want to deadlift? Try a more knee dominant option like sumo deadlifting. ⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ As a Physio, having more exercises in your exercise toolbox means you’re less likely to say “stop doing that” and more likely to say “try this instead” 👍⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ And that can make all the difference to your active patients or athletes 💪⁣⁣⠀ Image credit - @tony.comella

⁣The way we are taught Evidence-Based Practice can lead us down some interesting paths🚶‍♀️⠀ ⠀ Infographics made by @connorgleadhill 🙌 ⠀ ⠀ It’s always important to review how and why we are using evidence. What helps here is to first understand what evidence isn’t ✖⠀ ⠀ 1. Evidence isn’t making clinical practice into a cookbook or recipe. We still need to practice and hone our skills of clinical reasoning. Clinical practice remains a very complex area and some might say, a uniquely human endeavour ✔⠀ ⠀ 2. Evidence isn’t catching up to the ‘bleeding’ or ‘leading edge’ in healthcare. You do not wait around until evidence proves that your new treatment is effective. If you are, you might have to ask yourself why you are using evidence in the first place ✔⠀ ⠀ 3. Evidence isn’t replacing your critical thinking skills. Evidence cannot think for you. We need to be good thinkers first and evidence informed practitioners second ✔⠀ ⠀ Evidence does not exist to prove that your treatments work. ⠀ ⠀ Evidence is simply something that reduces our human bias and should improve our ability to make better decisions.⠀ ⠀ Before you read your next piece of evidence (whatever form it takes!) try to remember how and why you are using it.⠀ ⠀ Ref: ⠀ - Gorski D and Novella S. Clinical trials of integrative medicine: testing whether magic works? Trends in Molecular Medicine 2014:20(9);473-476.⠀ - Kamper S. Engaging with research: linking evidence with practice.

⁣Movement myth 🧐⠀ ⠀ "You should start running 3 months post ACL surgery"🤔⠀ ⠀ A lot of practitioners believe that the best time to start running after ACLR is at the 3 month mark. But is everyone at the same stage physical function wise after 3 months? ⠀ ⠀ Not always ❗⠀ ⠀ So when SHOULD you start running after ACLR?⠀ ⠀ Research suggests that a combination of functional criteria should be used to determine readiness to return to run, including:⠀ ⠀ ☑ Full or close to full knee ROM⠀ ☑ Pain < 2/10 VAS ⠀ ☑ > 70% quadriceps LSI⠀ ☑ > 70% hamstring LSI⠀ ☑ > 70% single hop for distance LSI⠀ ⠀ [Rambaud 2019]⠀ ⠀ If these criteria are met before running, this increases the chances of the patient making a successful return back to running, as their body is better prepared to run.⠀ ⠀ Save the time and money necessary to read hundreds of studies per month 💸⠀ ⠀ Check out Physio Network - Link in bio 🔗

⁣A step-by-step approach for successful return to sport with overuse injuries ➡🏀🏈⚾⠀ ⠀ One major problem with overuse injuries, is that they tend to occur again repeatedly...⠀ ⠀ How do we prevent overuse injuries from coming back?⠀ ⠀ Proper load management after return to sport seems to be key 🔑 This can be done by bridging the gap between physio's and coaches.⠀ ⠀ Traditionally, physios have only been involved in:⠀ ⠀ ✔ Reducing load⠀ ✔ Increasing tissue load tolerance⠀ ✔ Addressing risk factors⠀ ✔ Replicating sport-specific demands with rehab and testing.⠀ ⠀ These measures are very important, but we should collaborate closer with coaches after the player has returned to sport, in order to ensure that the risk of injury recurrence is decreased. ⠀ ⠀ Structured, appropriate loading may ensure RTP-success and unstructured or excessive loading will likely not. ⠀ ⠀ What do you guys think?😊⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Photo credit: Ben Clarsen (Phd).⠀
