An underappreciated aspect of ACL injury prevention and rehab

July 1, 2016

Working on jump landing, strength of the hamstrings, strength in general, squatting and not letting the knees come in, bosu balls, there is a lot out there on preventing ACL injuries and rehabbing from them. One thing rarely discussed is the other 23 hours of the day you’re not doing the above. Like how you […]

Is there about to be a revolution in ACL surgery?

April 6, 2016

I’m listening to some One Direction when my girlfriend comes over, “Have you seen this?” She shows me the following video: She found this while scrolling her Facebook newsfeed. 99% of what’s found on there is more hyperbolic than Mark Zuckerberg thinking he’s connecting everybody, when really we all just want to know if our ex […]

“Help! I can’t straighten my knee!”

September 3, 2015

For years now, I’ve extolled the importance of working on knee extension 1) after knee injury 2) after knee surgery. This has been particularly emphasized in my reconstructive ACL and meniscus injury writing. I wrote a manual on the first month of ACL rehab, where I cover knee extension fairly thoroughly. However, not everyone who has trouble with this […]

Why you don’t want to wait to regain knee extension range of motion

This is a precursor to my manual “Regaining Knee Extension.” You can pick a copy up here: Or find out more about it here. – This isn’t a completely understood topic. I’m going to illustrate one theory, but there are others out there. (If you feel you have a good one, let me know!) More than […]

Looking more in depth at Darrelle Revis’ ACL comeback (why so many NFL players don’t make it back)

August 14, 2015

In a recent profile of Darrelle Revis in Sports Illustrated, Revis mentioned the difficulty he had coming back from his reconstructive ACL surgery. He was injured in September 2012, and didn’t start running again until May 2013.  -> I don’t know what they mean by running here. Straight line, light running typically takes place within a few months post-op. […]

Timing of ACL surgery- is waiting beneficial?

August 7, 2015

This started as a comment exchange from my post on mistakes ACL patients make. “Hey Brian, I’m a few weeks from ACL reconstruction. Everyone’s told me the PT is the most important part of the recovery back to active sports (basketball for me), and I plan on following your manual and the physical therapist’s protocol […]

Emptying out the mailbag & clearing the history #1

Comments Off on Emptying out the mailbag & clearing the history #1

This is an idea I got from Bill Simmons. Particularly during the NFL season, Simmons will empty out his email inbox. There isn’t much of a theme to it, it goes off on tangents, can be random, but it’s a way to get a bunch of different thoughts and comments out there. I thought I’d try something […]
