In this episode, I'm joined by Lisa Chase, PT. She's the Co-Chair of the Functional Manual Medicine Certification Program at Michigan State University, former Medical Director of the WTA Tour (professional women's tennis), and owner of Back 2 Normal Physical Therapy in St. Petersburg, FL. She describes how she's spent her career looking for "game changers" in the physical therapy profession. The first she found was the Michigan State treatment model, including the manual therapy techniques in the curriculum that she now teaches. She discusses some of these concepts and techniques, including muscle energy, biomechanics, and manual therapy. Her most recent "game changer" has been the NEUBIE, and she shares how she's been able to use the NEUBIE to amplify the benefits of her manual therapy plus exercise treatment model, and also help people who would have been more difficult to treat manually because of their neurological guarding. With some of her stories from professional tennis and other clinical pearls, this episode is jam-packed!
