  • Role of the Thorax in Treatment of Recurrent Hamstring Injury [Article]

    It is now understood that that poor thorax biomechanics can play a role in multiple conditions and at regions far removed from it. This article describes the Integrated Systems Model approach for holistic assessment and treatment of your patients and a case study demonstrates how it can be used to identify the previously unsuspected (and, therefore, untreated) involvement of the thorax in a recurrent hamstring injury. Understanding and applying this biopsychosocial approach will enable you to find all the drivers of your patient’s injury and treat them in a meaningful way, so allowing your patient to get back to doing what they love. This article has been extracted from the author’s book The Thorax – An Integrated Approach.

  • The Hamstring Hustle: Rapid Return to Sport Versus Recurrence [Article]

    Isn’t this the pressure that you, as a physical therapist, are put under every day? “How soon, how quickly, when, why, how come?”; “This is costing me money and time, I’m losing my place in the team, I have a race coming up…” Making that call of when a patient can return to full sport can be challenging; especially when there are coaches, sponsors, parents and the athlete all adding to the ‘drama’, as well as social media or the internet giving their own ‘advice’. There is a plethora of information out there regarding hamstring injuries, often confounding. You are not alone, even the research can be confusing and ill-defined. This article will look at the most recent research available regarding return-to-sport pre-requisites following a hamstring strain injury and enable you to get your patient to that point of readiness through the most current, and successful, rehabilitation protocols.
