  • Whose Profession Is It?

    Two weeks ago I attended a Texas Physical Therapy Association meeting. The speaker was Mike Conners, president of the TPTA. Last week I discussed my belief the APTA is too focused on issues, such as direct access, that do not affect the majority of PTs and PTAs. Mike made another point that needs to be considered. We all know that physician's ...

  • News From the CSCS Exam!

    On February 7, I sat for the Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) exam with the NSCA and passed. As I touched on in a previous post, this exam is often sought after by physical therapists and physical therapy students who are looking to improve their knowledge in sport-specific training and exercise physiology as a way to set ...

  • Cutting-Edge Collaboration

    PHILADELPHIA -- When the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Annual Convention came to this country's birthplace last week, ADVANCE made sure to be on the scene. Held in conjunction with the 2015 Major League Soccer (MLS) draft, the conference is billed as ''The World's Largest Annual Gathering of Soccer Coaches,'' drawing more ...
  • Quantity vs. Quality of Life

    Just recently a friend of mine celebrated a significant birthday. I celebrated the same one a year ago. Something about turning this age propelled us both to contemplate the future in a different way than younger ''landmark'' birthdays had done. What to do with the time that is left? This article takes an interesting look at someone's choice to ...

  • Ice Bucket Challenge

    Over the past few weeks, I've noticed more videos of my friends appearing on various social media networks of themselves dumping ice cold water on their heads and nominating others to do the same. I didn't know much about how the trend started and after some reading (as well as the messages in each video), learned it was a fundraising effort to ...

  • The Finish Line

    Whenever I stand at the starting line of a race, I always think about one thing: the uncrossed finish line waiting for me at the end. And as with any race I have competed in, this blog too has reached its finish line. In my very first ADVANCE blog post I wrote, ''My hope is that this blog serves not just as a place for me to express my thoughts ...

  • Outcome Measures

    I am (again) starting to work out more regularly. I'm not sure if it was the long and miserable winter, but I hadn't felt like exercising for a while. Now that the sun is out and the days seem longer, I'm making a commitment to exercising four days a week. I tend to go to extremes, either living a completely lethargic and sedentary life or ...

  • Unintended Consequences

    A while back there was some chatter among us ADVANCE bloggers on the public health issue of obesity. Since having an elevated BMI can cause a host of health problems, and Westernized nations on the whole are getting heavier and heavier, this is an area where many PTs could possibly have some input. The discussion at the time of the blogs had ...

  • A Culture of 'Don't!'

    I was doing some research on a particular activity this week... head rolls. Not the soft round things one puts under one's neck to maintain the curve while supine, but the act of rolling the head around as an exercise or activity. I did this because I read an article in the popular press that said, ''even physiotherapists say you shouldn't do head ...

  • A Blog of Olympic Proportion

    Have you all seen what has been going on in Russia the last few weeks? No, not all that business with the Ukraine and Crimea (although honestly when was the last time one country just up and annexed part of another country? Seriously, it's been a while!). But I'm talking about the 2014 Paralympics in Sochi, Russia. After all the pomp and ...
