On episode 23 of TMF Podcast, I am joined by Dr. Shirley Sahrmann, PT, PhD. Shirley has been a physical therapist and instructor at Washington University for over 50 years, has a PhD in neurobiology, and is the author of the renowned books Diagnosis and Treatment of Movement Impairment Syndromes and Movement System Impairment Syndromes of the Extremities, Cervical and Thoracic Spines.

Her work and books have hugely influenced the way I treat, the way I teach, and the way I think about human movement. I highly recommend you read her work to continue your movement education.
