The Movement Fix Podcast: Episode 1

Here it is! The inaugural Movement Fix Podcast. Episode 1 features Dr. Phillip Snell out of Portland, OR. Dr. Snell is a man that I have learned a tremendous amount of extremely useful information from. He is one of only a handful of people I have listed in my note packet (that accompanies The Movement Fix Workshops) that has greatly influenced me, how I practice, and what I teach to athletes and coaches. I am not sure how Dr. Snell reads as much research as he does while simultaneously running several websites, teaching seminars, and practicing full time as a chiropractor, but he does and is simultaneously very generous with his time.
