"f you don’t believe there is a lot of bs methods in physical therapy you’re in denial. My point was that at least manual therapy is done by massage therapist who can identify tissue improvement with their hands. "
strong comprehension of the term manual therapy
“who can identify tissue improvement with their hands”
hahahahahaha not even once, the only tissue improvement they are gon notice is that last 10 minutes that cost an extra 20 if ya no what im sayin. This is a subjective report, not measurable. Remember that little placebo thing you mentioned before.
“If for example someone has a meniscus injury are glute clam shells really going to fix the injury site and let the person get back to squatting to go to the washroom? Would it be as effective as doing glute ham raises, back extensions, petersen step ups, romanian deadlifts, vmo sled drags, prowler pushing, etc…?”
lol fix the injury site… … … … … …
Nothing is going to “fix the injury site” except if it is in the outer 1/3 and the body heals yourself plus some other potential add-ons which I am familiar with. I’m not even going to bother with your riveting exercise plan and narrow-minded clam shell statement. Meniscal injuries become pain free when the inflammation exits the joint.
“If someone has a shoulder injury are band exercises going to alleviate long term muscle dysfunction and get him back pressing?”
maybe, stupid question
“Kelly Starrett is good because he combines so many different things to achieve his goal and he considers himself a strength and conditioning coach.”
Kstarr is OK, cross fit is a joke for athletes but he is good with biomechanics, his capsular mobilization stuff is horrendous for the hips and shoulders, YAY for instability!!!
“I have been in physical therapy rooms and the PT has 3-4 patients so they prescribe basic exercises and or icing while a manual therapist allots a time to work on one patient at a time. [/quote]”
cool story bro
