My journey through study & practice: Sports Chiro | Physiotherapy | Nutrition | Strength & Conditioning | Cred MDT | Current Med Student
Progressing through Achilles tendinopathy (tendinitis) rehab today. Here we have someone looking to get back into running ♂️ after an Achilles’ tendon injury. How do we know they are ready run again? We do these rehab drills (and others), called energy release exercises to see what the capacity of their Achilles tendon is like.
Plantar fasciitis treatment . Today we have a professional sprinter ♂️ who suddenly increased his training load and got heel pain. In the video we have him completing isometric, slow heavy and eccentric plantar fascia bias heel raises. Current best evidence supports active treatments such as this. The focus has moved away from passive treatments ⚕️. Better terms for plantar fasciitis are plantar heel pain and plantar fasciopathy - inflammation is not always demonstrated.

Beautiful wedding location in Port Douglas for our good friends 🧖♀️
Nothing like some caffeine and keto for a light study buz 🤪
A day of surgical skills with the big fella ⚕️
Nothing like a physiotherapy master class to start your weekend
Not a bad spot for a frappe 🤪
Studying with Francis tonight
For the last 2 years I’ve been following my passion for the field of sports medicine and sports chiropractic. I’ve been traveling to the USA to gain my training and credentials as a Sports Chiropractor. Going abroad to learn is always such an enlightening experience and has allowed me to learn and develop unique sports chiropractic skills and techniques from some of the best and most knowledgeable sports medicine doctors in the world. After completing my board exams I’ve just received my CCSP (certified chiropractic sports physician/practitioner) giving me full qualifications as a Sports Chiropractor in Australia and overseas. A great start to 2018!
Nothing like some anatomical models to get your heart racing #S3C
