24 - Boring Doesn't Sell, Accuracy vs Connection; with Dr. Perry Nickelston, Pt. 2

On episode 24 of TMF Podcast, I am joined by Perry Nickelston, DC, from Stop Chasing Pain. Perry was one of my very first podcasts guests, in fact, he was on back in Nov 2014. I can't believe it has been that long. You can find our first discussion together HERE.

Perry is one of the most genuine people I've ever spoken with. This episode was much more candid and heartfelt than I had expected.

Horizontal Pulling for Better Shoulder Health

Horizontal Pulling for Better Shoulder Health

Banded Ankle Joint Mobilization

Banded Ankle Joint Mobilization

The ankle joint for many people is pretty stiff and could use a bit more motion. I am not a huge proponent of banded joint mobilizations or self joint mobilizations with external loading, BUT the ankle is a joint where I think the benefits are large and the risks are very minimal (aggressive banded mobilizations of the shoulder may not be so good for everyone, for example).
