Olympic Lifting, CrossFit, and Gymnastics by Dr. Dave Tilley

  Some time ago, I interviewed my friend Dave Tilley of the Hybrid Perspective about Crossfit, Olympic lifting, and general weight lifting for the gymnastics population. I get a ton of questions about all of these topics and immediately refer people directly to this article. It’s one of the most in-depth perspectives on all the topics […]

My Surgeon Said ‘I’m Good’

My surgeon said, “I’m good.” This is very often the conversation I have with friends and family a few months after surgery. And, in the surgeon’s eyes, he is exactly correct. You see, this post is far from a typical, “Let’s bash the surgeon article.” This is much more about truly understanding what this actually […]

Body Awareness

Sometimes I think the best way to describe what I do is body awareness. It’s really quite simple. Something has gone wrong within the machine and our job is to fix it. Once we get into the rehab or movement side of things, most of my job is simply making a person aware of what […]

Shoulder Pain to Handstand in 2 Visits!

When I met Dr. Justin at a presentation he was giving at Brawlhouse in Mountainside, I knew right away that this was a guy I wanted to work with and continue to learn from. A year prior to us meeting, I had injured my shoulder practicing hand balancing. I stubbornly self-rehabbed, and although i regained […]

I Think I’m Going to Get an MRI…

The famous last words of so many clients and patients that I encounter every day. As you can probably tell by the tone, this may not always be the best course of action. Before I get into it however, let me preface this by saying that I am in no way, shape, or form bashing […]

Why Your Dentist Should Not Be the Only One Doing Yearly Check-Ups…

This is an excerpt from an article I wrote almost 5 years ago. Amazing how time flies. Luckily, the message has not changed. We all do and say some regrettable things. This is not regrettable as I stand by this message from my younger self. ————– Of what I have read so far, the most […]

Setting PR’s While Injured

People who seek out my care are always injured. This is pretty obvious.   What isn’t obvious however, is how we can still have that injured person set personal records while being injured.   This is where people get confused. They often think that we simply ‘push through’ the pain. You know, like the old […]

ONE BIG SECRET

One of the tenants of my practice is treating athletic injuries. This was always a natural fit for me as I was an athlete growing up and love sports.   I absolutely love treating athletes because they are generally very motivated to get better especially when their pain has taken away what they value most: […]

Do YOU Need A Movement Coach?

The short answer is yes.   Everyone needs a movement coach.   Why?   And what the heck does that actually mean?   Well, a movement coach may be a chiropractor, physical therapist, or strength coach. Truthfully, the title is the least important part of this conversation.   What’s really important however is that this […]
