Default Some good statements....

A few lines from folks I enjoy reading...

Joel Bialosky

“…lasting structural changes have not been identified, clinicians are unable to reliably identify areas requiring manual therapy, the forces associated with manual therapy are not specific to a given location and vary between clinicians, choice of technique does not seem to affect outcomes, and sign and symptom responses occur in areas separate from the region of application.”

Mel Siff (thanks Ken!)
"In all tests which presume to measure bilateral balance, stability and strength ratios, it is essential to remember that everyone displays functional asymmetry, so that small to moderate differences in all of these factors tends to be rather meaningless. Humans are not symmetric machines and it can often be more damaging to try to alter "natural asymmetry" than it is to leave it alone. Far too many tests assume that there is some sort of norm or ideal against which everyone can be compared. At best, one can only validly make comparisons against oneself over time or against the mean of groups who are similar to you in age, bodymass, gender, sport, sporting level and injury profile."

Nijs and Houdenhouve
“…it is clear that pain neurophysiology education should be included in the initial phase of rehabilitation in those patients who have inappropriate beliefs about their pain complaints. If not, a poor understanding of pain may lead to the acquisition of maladaptive attitudes, cognitions and behaviour (Geisser and Roth, 1998) and a consequent poor compliance to any active treatment such as exercise intervention.”

Mark Rippetoe
"You are right to be wary. There is much bullsh^t. Be wary of me too, because I may be wrong. Make up your own mind after you evaluate all the evidence and the logic"

Your muscles cannot get “longer” without some rather radical orthopedic surgery.

You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there
