23 A chat w/ Dr. Principal about being a Female Physical Therapist of color and the life of bodybuiling
What is it like being a physical therapist of color?  What is it like being a female physical therapist of color?  What is it like being a female physical therapist of color, who also competes and treats bodybuilders?

20 Your Butt: How to Properly Screen and Train your Gluteus Medius
So there's been a lot of talk about the gluteus medius (GM) and it’s role in: hip abduction hip internal and external rotation (dependent upon hip position) pelvic stability controlling knee valgus I'm not here to refute any of this. It's all true. My issue lies with how the GM is both screened and treated. If we wish to delver the best outcome to our clients, then we must  dig deeper into the terms structure and function --- which are clinically synonymous for anatomy and  physiology. Listen and learn the importance of knowing how the GM muscles function and how they play a role in your client’s work, life and play, will offer better results with your treatment plan, and yield improved client outcomes.

18 - Fitness, Aging & Quality of Life
Age gracefully?  You're only as young as you feel? If you ain't got your health, you ain't got nothing.  I ain't no spring chicken anymore. These are not just axioms, but solid beliefs. But why? Why do we believe that as we age, we are expected to get ill, lose function and competence, and become frail? Where and when did we learn to connect "aging" with deterioration? Why do we limit our full, physical potential the older we get? In this podcast, we discuss: the role fitness plays in one's quality of life the mindset behind growing old" vs "aging" the common denominators among those reporting high life satisfaction the 3 things we need to thrive why we need rituals the importance of feeling valued and having a life purpose                                                                                                     Heal.
