On this episode of the #AskMikeReinold show we talk about productivity standards for outpatient physical therapists. There are definitely two different perspectives on this, one from the therapist and the other from the clinic owner, but there is also an ethical line we need to be careful of not crossing.

Show Notes * 6 Things You Do That Your Clients Hate Transcript Mike Reinold: On this episode of The Ask Mike Reinold show, we talk about how you should deal with productivity standards in your physical therapy clinic. Evan: James from Minnesota, “What are your guys’ thoughts on handling productivity standards in private practice outpatient setting? I have expectations for billing four units in a 40 minute treatment session and expectations for starting patients at three times a week for 50% of overall caseload. I believe in putting the patient’s needs first and tailoring my treatment to meeting their needs. Love the show guys, keep up all the great work.” Mike Reinold: Wow, that’s pretty great. So, I like this. This is a good question on productivity standards which I feel like the cycle of physical therapy in this country kind of continues. Like, you see these big neck, big conglomerates get larger and then they all kind of like foul. Mike Reinold: I don’t know what happens, right? But you get a big mass of HealthSouth and then things happen and then it disperses and you get these like waves and what tends to happen is you start with like a nice small private practice, right? And you do things right, you do things the way you want to do it, those sorts of things. And then over time you get into these big conglomerates and it becomes more about like less about the person and it becomes a business, right? And productivity standards, how many people per hour should you see? How many units should you bill? Stuff like that. Right. So, specifically to this one though, four units in 40 minutes? Is that legal? Yeah, I guess so. Right, right. So this is like pure hitting the limit of like how to maximize it. Mike Reinold: And then the other thing is you should be seeing your patients three times a week? Evan: For 50% of the overall caseload. Mike Reinold: Yeah, so it sounds like what they’re doing in your environment is there, there’s probably a larger corporation type thing and they probably have some metrics that they know are the averages, right? So they’re trying to say, “Hey, you’re below the averages.

Mike Reinold: All right. What do we have for questions, Ryan? Student: We have Chris from New York. He says, “Hi guys, I’m a young physical therapist, less than two years out of school in an orthopedic setting and I’m looking to specialize in baseball related injuries and rehabilitation. I was wondering what your best advice would be to move toward a specialization such as baseball.” Mike Reinold: All right. So two years out of college. Student: Two years. Mike Reinold: Is that what it was? Good. So pretty common question I think that we have. And I don’t think we need to talk about baseball, right? We can all talk about anything we want, but I guess the question is the young clinician two years out wants to start specializing in some sport or some activity. This one specifically baseball. Probably a good question. And I’m glad you’ve done it this way ’cause we have students and young clinicians all the time that come through and immediately want to specialize in something. And I kind of like how you’re two, three years out of school. You kind of learned a little bit of everything, right? Doing some general kind of approaches and now want to get a little bit more specific. I like that. Mike Reinold: So who wants to start? I mean, let’s answer this as a kind of how to specialize into a niche population, right? Or as Dave would say a niche population. Lenny Macrina: Classic. Mike Reinold: Who wants to start first?

Show Notes * How to Best Integrate Evidence Based Practice* The good and bad of continuing education on social media Transcript Mike Reinold: On this episode of the Ask Mike Reinold Show, we talk about how we choose some of the PT interventions that we do when there isn’t enough scientific evidence available. Mike Reinold: Trey, are you the question asker today? Trey: I am. Mike Reinold: Fantastic. What do we got today? Trey? Trey: David from San Francisco. How do you determine which PT interventions you perform when there’s little to no evidence available? Mike Reinold: Ooh, good question. That’s a big one. Yeah, and it’s funny like I kind of got the sense reading the question a little bit too. You know, this is one of the biggest things I’m seeing on social media right now. It’s not the post, it’s the reactions to the post on how confused everybody is. Mike Reinold: Well, so how do you choose what interventions you do when we don’t have evidence of it. So I’ll start off by by saying a lot of people do have this quest to only do things that have strict evidence-based validity, right? So something that has been shown in a research project to be, you know, valid for example. And everybody has the quest to do that. And I think that’s like a great quest, right? That you should try to do that all the time. But I think the reality of it, especially in our field, especially in healthcare, especially with the way our clinical trials work, it’s nearly impossible to do a well controlled study on the majority of things we do. So even though like we’re trying and we’re doing our best with research, it’s really hard to conduct these studies. So you know, oftentimes we’re faced with things where maybe it’s a new technique or an intervention that people are talking about on the internet or maybe it’s something that’s old but we still haven’t validated in there. Mike Reinold: How do we decide what we do and don’t use in our clinical pract...

Transcript Mike Reinold: On this episode of the ask Mike Reinold Show, we talk about the sleeper stretch and if it’s a thing of the past or something that we still use here at Champion. Do we have a question from the audience today? Student: We do. Brady from Iowa: Is the sleeper stretch a thing of the past? If so, what other options are there to address gird in overhead athletes? Mike Reinold: So I’m going to throw it on the students here because I think I get why people are saying this, right? People still recommend the sleeper stretch. And you’re probably getting a script from a drug doctor that says do the sleeper stretch, right. Lenny Macrina: I got one yesterday. But I don’t want to date the podcast, but if we could somehow pan the camera, which we’re not to the whiteboard. I put this on my Instagram and Twitter recently because I literally got a script from a doctor that said gird poster capsule, tight, sleeper stretch were the three things in a 13 year old softball player. Mike Reinold: I’m going to send a script to a doctor with a patient that says do a meniscectomy. Just send it to the doctor when we send him in there. Lenny Macrina: So we still get these in our area. Mike Reinold: Did you guys learn sleeper stretch in school and did they say it was like a thing like you should use it? Lenny Macrina: Do they teach it in school though? Is it a part of the curriculum or this is a social media thing? Dave Tilley: I was never taught it. Student: I wasn’t told it. Student: We went over it one day in school as an option to increase IR but not really a specific application for [crosstalk 00:03:59]. Lenny Macrina: It could be that they’re just presenting all of the options. Right. Mike Reinold: And don’t forget in the early two thousands there were some articles about how this was the greatest thing in the world. Lenny Macrina: Sliced bread. Mike Reinold: Right. So if you were to Google this and you were actually to like go on Pub Med or something, you would actually find articles that say it’s pretty good. Lenny Macrina: Yeah. Mike Reinold: But Brady,

Transcript Mike Reinold: On this episode of the Ask Mike Reinold Show, we talk about how physical therapists can learn more about weightlifting, Olympic lifts, power lifting, etc. So that way, you can help your patients with that sort of stuff. Mike Reinold: All right. Who’s got this question? Ryan: I got it. Aaron in Tacoma. “Are there any weightlifting certifications or courses that you recommend for physical therapists? We received a tiny amount of instruction in PT school on things like barbell squats, dead lifts, bench press, etc. And I feel that this would be very useful when working with athletes. Thanks for any info.” Mike Reinold: Aaron. I think it’s actually pretty cool that he had some exposure, probably more than most people are. And I think that’s pretty good. So I think that’s a great concept, right? And I would say one of the more popular questions we get on this podcast and continuously get, and we don’t answer anymore, is should a PT get a CSCS? And we can potentially talk about that too when we get into this. Mike Reinold: But I like the concept. You want to learn more about the lifts and stuff like that. Let’s start by answering his question directly. Is there a certification? So CSCS, anything else like that? An official USA weight lifting type thing. What do you guys recommend? I don’t know. Has anyone gone through any of them? Dan, have you gone through any of them specifically? Dan Pope: I haven’t done USA weightlifting. Mike Reinold: Because some of our coaches have, and so we all share the knowledge in there. But is there any certification or even a con-ed program you’d recommend? Dan Pope: We do. Well, I’m biased. I’ve been preparing my entire life for this question. Dave Tilley: Yeah, what if I wanted my my fitness very pain-free? Dan Pope: Yeah. Yeah. I mean this is one of the reasons why I went to PT school in the first place is because I loved weight lifting. I loved weight training and I just felt like there wasn’t a lot of good information out there on how to help people have pain that want to get back to these lifts. So I went to school and then tried to figure all this stuff out myself. First and foremost, Dave and I just, we both worked for a company called Power Monkey Fitness and they had these seminars throughout the course of the world. They have a camp twice a year in Tennessee and their goal is how to teach the...

Transcription Mike Reinold: On this episode of The Ask Mike Reinold Show, we talk about some of the strategies we use to restore passive knee extension range of motion after a surgery. Trey: Ellie from Florida asked, what are some methods you find most effective for gaining full knee extension in a post-surgical patient, with increased tone in the hamstrings? Dave Tilley: I’ll answer this question. Jump on it. Mike Reinold: Yes. All right. I like this, it’s a good question. What are some of the methods that we use to regain full knee extension after surgery? Now they, Ellie, specifically mentioned, with tone in the hamstring, which definitely is a thing and is definitely something that happens post-op, but not the only reason why you would have loss of motion. There’s a million ways to do this. What do you guys think? Who wants to start? I mean, somebody can ramble on a million things, but what do you think is the most important thing to do? A post-op patient comes in to you with limited knee extension. Lenny, why don’t you start with this? What do you look at to determine why, maybe, they have this loss of motion? Lenny Macrina: Yeah. I mean, usually it’s because they weren’t educated at the beginning on how to keep the range of motion. So, a big portion of my education when I first get somebody in, especially after an ACL, where there’s a lot of pain or a knee replacement, is prop the heel up, allowing that knee to get into extension. The position of comfort is going to be slight flexion. Open-packed position of the knee is about 20 degrees. So you’re going to want to put a pillow under their knee. So education by all means, first, is to get them to understand that getting extension is the most important thing after surgery. You mentioned tone in the hamstrings. Yeah, probably, maybe. Because, they are going to get shortened over time. But, there was a study that came out last year, I think it was Med Science Sports and Exercise, that showed that it was the capsule that gets tight and not necessarily the hamstring. For me, I want to do things that are going to address both hamstring and capsules. So, I’m going to look at how you stretch out capsule or collagen tissue? You need prolonged stretch on the knees. You need prolonged, low-load long duration stretch. So, you need the person to prop the leg up and give a good 15 minutes at a time. We recommend usually 60 minutes total in a day, to get the knee to into full extension, whether it’s beyond 0 or not, and symmetrical to the other side. So, getting the collagen to stretch out, I think, is the key and hamstring stretching, maybe some foam rolling,

Listen and Subscribe to Podcast You can use the player below to listen to the podcast or subscribe. If you are enjoying the podcast, PLEASE click here to leave us a review in iTunes, it will really mean a lot to us. THANKS! Transcript This question is from Ian from North Carolina. I was reading through a recent discussion on one of your posts in Instagram in the influence of posture on pain. There seems to be a lot of theories. What do you guys think? – What is the influence of posture on pain? We talk about this a lot on Facebook and Instagram the last few weeks ’cause I put a post showing the prevalence of rotary cuff tears are higher in people with poor posture. And there’s definitely not the best methodology in that subject. But it created a bit of a buzz. So I don’t know. Does posture influence pain? Who wants to start? This is a big one, but there’s tons of info. You got it Mike? – I can start. I’ll let you guys follow up, but I know when I sit at my computer for a long time with bad posture, I don’t feel better. So I feel pretty bad actually after sitting for like four or five hours working on the computer with bad posture. I just don’t feel, – You feel worse. – I feel worse. So I don’t know if that means anything. – So let’s roll off that. What do you guys think? Why does Mike feel worse after sitting at his computer all day? That’s an interesting question. So his poor posture did increase his symptoms, but why? – I think honestly it depends. I think sitting for a prolonged period of time and not moving probably has a lot of things going on physiologically than just make you feel poor. I know that if I sit and I work in front of a computer for a long period of time, as opposed to standing and engaging with people, I feel better standing and engaging, being more social, moving my body. I bet physiologically there’s a lot of good stuff that goes on with movement. I think the big question is whether or not having a prolonged posture is gonna lead to pain. But I think the thing that we can probably all agree on is that when someone has a pain problem, certain postures will definitely exacerbate that. – That’s a good point. – Without a doubt. – That’s a good point. – I can say right now, sitting here for awhile, my hip is starting to hurt. It doesn’t feel phenomenal. I wouldn’t say that sitting’s gonna make everyone’s hip hurt though. But it’s definitely related to that individual. – I think that’s well done. An interesting quote that came up, so Greg Lemond actually had a great quote. I think it’s safe to say Greg doesn’t listen to this podcast so we’re probably safe to chat here, but maybe he will if he reads this title, so what’s up Greg? But Greg put a pretty cool comment. He just said, you know, “loading is life” or something like that. I actually replied. I was like, “yeah, that’s pretty good.” Loading is life, ’cause somebody said it like, “poor posture increases load. It increases load on the tissue.” And he’s like, “well, tissue needs to be loaded.” And I thought that was actually a smart comment, Greg, sorry. But I also thought it was quite short sighted too because that’s him just implying all load...
