Episode 92: The CALU Clinical Files with Quinn and Steph



Just to remind all you listeners, Quinn and Steph have started this new series to dive into the details about some of their own clinical cases. 

Quinn, one of the leaders of all the craziness that ClinicalAthlete is, also does some pretty cool things clinically. His office is inside of a weightlifting gym, so naturally, he specializes in working with barbell sport athletes. 

Case:

A female weightlifter, powerlifter, Strongman competitor, gym-owner and coach (woah!) recovering from a concussion. 

She is having troubles with her ability to exert force against external load and is finding some positional boundaries due to onset of concussive symptoms that can last a day or two. 

How do you begin graded exposure if there are no preceding factors to tell if symptoms are about to take over?

Steph speaks on the importance of a clinician’s confidence in situations like this and how it can make the programming you provide for your client even more effective.  

Happy listening!

Unfortunately within healthcare, burnout and losing the passion for your field is not uncommon, not only in the working world but even throughout school prior to getting your first job! Andrea had a brilliant idea to start with the HoneyBadger project to start her own business that helps healthcare students progress on mindset, physical activity, and stress management to try to prevent burnout and to maintain their passion. 

She discusses how being a student, commuter, wife, AND business owner takes discipline and passion.

If you’re a student/ new grad, come listen to all her tips and tricks to fuel your passion and stay healthy! 

Enjoy!!

Episode 89: Return to Sprinting with Dan Lorenz



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. 

Publication that we discussed:
CRITERIA-BASED RETURN TO SPRINTING PROGRESSION FOLLOWING LOWER EXTREMITY INJURY

Quinn and Steph are starting another NEW series on the ClinicalAthlete Podcast! 

Welcome to The CALU Clinical Files.

To all you listeners (yes all 6 of you), you DON’T want to miss this.

Quinn and Steph are starting this series to dive into some of their real life cases in which they have navigated some unknowns and come out on the other side to really have a positive effect on their client’s lives (pretty much they are just crushing it and want to brag!). 

Steph, as you all know, is on the Level Up “side of things” and a HUGE part of the CALU merger. She is passionate (and very good at) ACL rehabilitation and is currently working out of Boston PT and Wellness. 

On this episode, Steph describes a case about a rockstar high-school senior who is a competitive skier and unfortunately tore his ACL on the slopes. Post-surgery, Steph tested his quad Limb Symmetry Index (LSI) at the following timestamps with subjective reports:

3 months: Quad LSI approx. 60%-feeling GOOD

6 months: Quad LSI approx. 90%- followed up with anterior knee pain and reports of it feeling…. “wobbly”. 

Cue tears?!

Come listen to find out what exactly was going on and how Steph navigated the reports of pain and discomfort!!

Episode 87: The NEW “Nameless Series” with John and Jared



Ever dive into the research for a whole weekend and then just had NoOoO idea how to apply it to your client on Monday morning? Or even better, you figure out how to apply it and quickly realize it just didn’t work? 

Maybe you’re an athlete who is having a hard time digesting all the info regarding training and injuries on the good ole’ internet?

This show is for you.

John and Jared have been reflecting on their own experiences and the conversations they’ve had with previous ClinicalAthlete Podcast guests. They’ve gained tons of insights as both coaches and athletes because of this, but they knew that a lot of coaches and athletes were still struggling to make sense of it all.

Enter The Nameless Series!

(Don’t worry, YOU’RE going to help us name it!)

This is a laid-back, informal series all about how to blend being a coach and an athlete, helping you and your athletes perform better, and finding comfort in the “grey area”. The guys want to use this show to pass on what they’ve learned so far and what they’re learning now, so you can learn from it too. They’ll be bringing on influential guests from the athletic and coaching worlds that have wisdom to share – you’ll probably recognize some of them!

During this very first episode, John issues a “hair-off” challenge to Omar Isuf!

The duo also talk about how much they love watching the little wins with their athletes and getting to know them more than just an athlete. They emphasize the importance of finding that blend of using the scientific-research but also connecting on a deeper level with your athletes and coaches.

Make sure to keep an eye on John, Jared, and ClinicalAthlete’s Instagrams to vote for a name to this new series!
