Have we been using objective measures to decide when patients can get back to sprinting or are we blindly following a timeline? Have our previous “protocols” been sensitive to those providers and athletes without the new up-to-date technologies and resources?
Dan Lorenz, DPT, PT, ATC, LAT, CSCS, the director of sports medicine at Lawrence Memorial Hospital/OrthoKS in Lawrence, KS currently and a background in much more, is answering these questions and many more! Specifically in this episode, the ClinicalAthlete team dives into his Criteria-Based Return to Sprinting Progression publication, how it came about and what are the most important aspects to understand. He answers all questions about what the criteria looks like, personal experiences of where the usual progressions may not be appropriate for different reasons, the differences between being medically cleared and physically cleared, and much more!
AND as a bonus: Dan gives some great advice about BBQ that you CANNOT miss.
