December 4, 2015

This is rotation of the entire leg: But the femurs do not comprise the entire leg. They’re only the thigh. If someone is standing like so, A common mistake is thinking because the feet are turned out => the leg is externally rotated. But the feet are not the femurs! Just because the foot is turned […]

One of the most common questions regarding corrective exercise is, “I have an anterior pelvic tilt. What can I do to get rid of it?” As far as my memory goes, it’s been a decade since the internet was set a flame with the words anterior pelvic tilt. Where suddenly every issue every person had […]

Physical therapy doesn’t help hip osteoarthritis?

I’m a fan of the site Doctor Skeptic. The thesis of the site being a lot of the treatments we perform are ineffective when measured against placebo. That we aren’t doing enough research to see how many treatments fit under this umbrella. That the ethical considerations here are hypocritical. “It’s not ethical to do a study […]

In that it’s […]

Prefatory note Depending on your background, this may be one of those posts you have to slog your way through. (I know because writing it made me rethink how I felt about myself.) To some degree, it’s supposed to be. If you get lost at times, don’t feel bad. Especially if you’re lacking anatomy vernacular, […]

Other mailbags can be found here. Keep in mind a lot of this is email conversations, comment replies, or some random interesting things I’ve found. By their nature they are not as thorough or complete as a post on one topic. Here’s what’s covered in this installment (click to be taken to the section): Rise and fall of smoking in […]
