I had the honor of sitting down with Dr. Jill Cook and busting some common tendinopathy myths.  This episode with Dr. Jill Cook was recorded live in front of an audience at the Combined Section Meeting in Anaheim, CA about 2 weeks ago.  It was a great experience and one of the highlights of my CSM experience. 

A little more about Dr. Cook: She is a professor in musculoskeletal health in the La Trobe Sport and Exercise Medicine Research Centre at La Trobe University in Melbourne Australia. Jill’s research areas include sports medicine and tendon injury. After completing her PhD in 2000, she has investigated tendon pathology, treatment options and risk factors for tendon injury. Jill currently supplements her research by conducting a specialist tendon practice and by lecturing and presenting workshops both in Australia and overseas. 

In this episode we talk about:

* Are eccentric exercises are the best and only way to treat a tendinopathy? 

* Can use the same tendon therapy protocol for every tendon and every person. 

* A tendinopathy always involves inflammation.

* Once you are pain free and back to sport you don't have to worry about the exercises you did in PT.

* Why we shouldn't be selling messages we can't deliver.

* and much more!

Dr. Cook shares so much information about tendinopathy in this episode that I think I learned more in 25 min that I have in the past 10 years!

Thank you again to the Private Practice Section of the APTA for all of their help to make this happen and thank you to Jimmy McKay, host of the PT Pintcast for the great intro!

Enjoy and stay Healthy Wealthy & Smart!

If you are a physical therapist and you have not heard of the Graham Sessions...don't worry you are not alone!  The first time I heard about this meeting was last year and even then I had no idea what it was all about.  So this year I was able to register for the event which took place at the beautiful Biltmore Resort in Phoenix, AZ in January.  Because most PTs have no idea what the Graham Sessions are or they heard about the Graham Sessions on social media and are feeling left out, this podcast with one of the founders of the Graham Sessions, Steve Anderson, PT will hopefully answer all of the questions you might have about this meeting. 

In this episode we talk about:

* What are the Graham Sessions?

* How did the Graham Sessions come about? (It involves a late night at a bar)

* What were the topics covered in this year's Graham Sessions.

* What were Steve's thoughts about the meeting this year.

* What are Steve's thoughts on the future of the Graham Sessions.

I want to thank Steve Anderson, PT for being on the podcast and for being so generous with his thoughts on this conference and the future of the Graham Sessions.

As always thank you for tuning in and subscribing to the podcast! Have a great week and stay Healthy Wealthy & Smart!
