A podcast without Serious discussions
This podcast is just one big joke—It’s not for serious PT’s who want to be the best. They just talk in general terms about vague items of discussion. Save your time and listening ear....
Extremely enjoyable and educational content!
I’m a senior Pre-PT student and Mike Reinold is someone who has really allowed me to foster my passion for Physical Therapy!! I always listen to his podcasts while driving and it’s disappointing when my drives end. I think there should be a rule that after listening to all of The Mike Reinold Show podcasts, you should be allowed to skip PT school and be given exemption from the NPTE!! Just kidding! But, I’ve learned so much!
Thanks Mike, Lenny, Dave, Mike S, and Dan for teaching us and the laughs you given many of us along the way! *cough shoulder impingement *cough is a cool topic *cough *cough
My Favorite PTs!
I’m a PT in my 3rd year of my career and I find Mike and Friends super helpful! I listen to the podcast daily during my lunch walks. I think I’ve finally listened to all of them though!!
Great Podcast. These guys are some of the most knowledgeable and experienced guys in the field right now.
Great Content. Entertaining. Quick and relevant. Love the interaction between the group.
I find this podcast super informative for anyone, but especially for a student. I love that I can get a small taste of the clinical setting without actually being there. I usually try to think about what I've learned in the classroom and apply that knowledge while listening!
Mako shark !
In listening to several of the Ask Mike Reinold podcasts with the group of people that he has with him is what I would like to liken to HIIT for the brain. Getting some great information to spingboard off of. To really assure yourself that the information is solid and help to integrate the information into practice you should always back up the information wiht your own independent research but as I said, I feel that it is a great springboard into what is new and functional or applicable.
ASTYM vs IASTM
Spot on and so needed.
Better audio would yield 5 stars
5 star content, 3 star audio.
I would love to listen more but find the background noises very distracting ie: music from weight room, weights dropping in the background, squeaky chair from someone fidgeting, etc.
The best filter in the therapy field to obtain the micro from the overwhelming macro. Thanks guys
Wow. Awesome. Superb. Thank you. The mentor I have been looking for in PT world. Loved the personality, confidence and knowledge. Thanks again for sharing. God bless.
Student Physical Therapist
Great show to watch while eating or walking to class. Super informational and the perfect length
Great show for SPTs!
I love the diversity of topics and explanations. As a current 2nd year PT student and an ATC, I have found this really helpful to hear more in-clinic based opinions to supplement the info taught by my professors. I especially enjoy the baseball/shoulder and elbow based episodes.
The world of exercise science is exponentially morphing with the craving for deepend knowledge as its explosive catalyst. This rebirthing has generated both prosperous growth and muddled confusion as the collision of imposters and forward thinkers is immensly apparent. Mike Reinold has been nothing short of a constant illuminator of concise and factual truths. His podcast is approximately 15-30 minutes of concise gold that allows any listener to relate to an array of topics ranging across a multitude of professional modalities (i.e. physical therapy, strength and conditioning, athletic training, etc.). Start listening now!
Awesome All Around
I love this podcast for many reasons. 1) Great clinical information and insight regarding a wide range of PT topics. 2) Variety of PTs available to answer questions ranging from general outpatient PT, working with barbell athletes, to managing a business. 3) Funny yet very informative. 4) The length of each episode is great for my commute to work. Thanks guys for the great content!
Awesome Podcast for Physical Therapists
Abby Gordon DPT
Mike, Lenny, and the crew at Champion Physical Therapy in Boston are not only entertaining, but they're also informative, current on the research, regularly seeing patients clinically, and they present their material efficiently. I've taken the time to listen to all the previous episodes now and learned so much and can't wait to see where the podcast goes. These guys genuinely seem to enjoy physical therapy and hanging out with each other. Happy (almost) 100 episodes guys! Thank you for this service.
Torn rotator cuff ...
I am really enjoying & learning from your shows about shoulders & getting questions answered that 2 Orthopaedic surgeons just didn't want to give me regarding surgery or not to do surgery!! I have full range of motion still, pretty strong from coaching gymnastics for 30 years & minor pain (& tear) so I have chosen to NOT do surgery at this time‼️ I am 66, just retired & enjoying classes @ the YMCA ... I feel like the aqua classes are fine but another class I am trying called BodyFlow includes tai chi, Pilates & yoga... just wondering if I should be doing that one?? I enjoy it but experience more pain .. in both shoulders ... just for a day or so though! Keep up the good work ... I appreciate your honesty regarding PT treatments!! Thanks! ~ Sharon Ferguson

This is a great podcast that keeps you listen from the combination of humor and information. I have been listening to it to and from work which has been great.
Amazing info, please improve audio :)
These guys are the gold standard for so many aspects of human performance and health
But you can hear everything in the background which takes just a little away from the awesome info

These guys do a great job of dealing with "real world" topics in their industry and dispense really good advice. I enjoy the podcast and love the informal setting.
Greatest rehab podcast!!
These guys are the best!! They're extremely generous with giving out tons of VERY valuable info and I love the short 10-minute episodes! I'm a total Mike Reinold groupie!!
Great clinic conversation!
Thanks guys for the great information and format. This has been really useful to spark conversations in research and practice patterns for myself and clinical team.
Great clinical pearls and recs
Great quick Q&A show, has given me lots of clinical pearls and recommendations on continuing education, etc as a physical therapist.
Quick, informative and entertaining. Thanks guys!
Great ortho PT, clinical application, and more
Quick and to the point. Great clinical insight on what PT's see in real life, what's clinically relevant, and what to do about it. If you like ortho PT/ sports ....this is the best out there.
A must for anyone who does PT
I've been a big fan of Mike for years but I have just begun listening to the podcasts. I have to say that they are both extremely informative and entertaining as well. I highly recommend it!
Awesome, To the Point, Informative!
I started listening to this podcast a couple of weeks ago (a little late to the game) and have been blazing through them. I crave multiple outlets of learning and staying up to date, and have found this podcast to be super helpful in both of those regards as well as simply being entertaining :). The fact that they are each about 20 minutes means I can easily make time for them as well. As a student, I have appreciated a handful of questions that they are answering being student-focused too. Thanks for putting in the awesome work guys, and I look forward to being caught up soon!
Keep it up
Love the format, fits in perfectly to my 15 minute commute. Keep up the good work

Great way to stay informed and continue learning!
Dirty mike and the boys bring it every episode. Informative and funny. Lenny is a hidden gem that takes the podcast to another level.
PT Pearls of Wisdom Podcasts!
I am a firm believer in that if you want to become a better Physical Therapist 1) keep up with relevant continuing education and research 2) become a great listener and 3) surround yourself with brilliant folks!
In 2013, I started my solo practice, MovEvolution Physical Therapy. I gradually developed a niche for shoulders and knees. During this time, I came across Mike Reinold’s site and, eventually, his podcast --- The Ask Mike Reinold Show.
There is a lot of useless talk, banter and self-promotion out there, distracting the podcast listener from the main content --- which is why I only subscribe to a few podcasts. Here's why I keep checking out Mike’s Reinold’s podcasts:
- he adds no fluff or fillers and gets right to the good stuff.!
- his podcasts are fun, succinct, easily digestible and immediately applicable to one’s practice.
- he puts the “proof in the pudding”, backing up everything he says with both experience and research.
- he surrounds himself with brilliant, talented clinicians with a nice balance of opinions and expertise.
- he knows shoulders and knees.
- he really loves teaching as well as learning.
I have no financial or promotional ties to Mike Reinold or his organization. I just believe that, in our field, it’s important to share knowledge and the source of such knowledge. Physical therapists, get smarter and listen to Mike’s podcasts.

Wicked good show
This is a great show. Lots of valuable lessons being taught. They keep it simple and get to the point. Very refreshing. Keep it up
Great topics, good insight.
This is my favorite podcast right now. Relevant topics to anyone associated with strength & conditioning and rehab. I would like to see some long form episodes (~1 hour) where the panel goes more in depth on multiple situations (example: an hour on SLAP tears). Clearly a lot of clinical experience being shared by this group; thanks!.
Packed with awesome information, it's like hanging out in the training room talking shop. Really great stuff every week. Thanks guys!
Listen every week. Gives you great information to get started on your journey into fitness.
Mike, Lenny, & Dave,
Thank you for taking the time out of your day to bring us a great podcast. It has positively impacted how I treat my patients. Please keep up the good work.

Definitely appreciate this podcast for the insight and relaxed atmosphere. Mike and crew discuss sport PT and non-clinically related topics more like a comfortable conversation amongst colleagues. I love learning from these guys and the guests they have on the show, keep doing what you're doing!

I have been in practice for a little over a year in a rural area. I see all ages and a huge range of physical abilities. Most of my patients are only training for the sport called Life, but I love Mike's philosophy that performance training can inform rehab. I am inspired and I learn so much from my colleagues in strength and conditioning.
Bordering on Irrelevant
PT DJ Podcaster
After listening to this podcast every week since it premiered, I have been waiting for it to develop, evolve, or improve to provide practical information. Each week it is a bunch of guys sitting in a room just throwing out theories and random thoughts. When someone asks a concrete quesiton, I always try to see if they will actually answer it or if they will "sidestep" the question.
The PTs and team from Champion seem to put almost no preperation into the podcast. This week when someone asked "Are Contrast Baths Effective" everyone basically had no answer but "they feel good." I thought Mike Reinhold is a research based PT-it would be nice if he actually put some preperation into his podcast and helped PTs with practical informatoin to improve their practice.
When someone has asked for practical treatment advice, often you are directed to pay for Mike's "inner Circle" to get more information. Please just answer the question and give an example or two.
Maybe do the questions, but add in a "Tip of the Week?" An exercise or treatment the PTs have found effective?
How about finding a female to balance out all the guys? This review is written by a guy-just I think it sounds like a bunch of guys eating lunch and reading random questions from the internet. Actually-that really is all it is at this point. It is listenable for the most part and short. I almost gave it 1 or 2 stars, but there is still potential to help people treat effectively and I hope they work on this.
I am a third year Student DPT looking for motivation, guidance and philosophies to help guide my practice and sought out this podcast, which has been an excellent forum for that. Being that my interests are performance enhancement and sports medicine, the guys at Champion provide insight into their world treating athletes and give students like myself motivation to continue down that path!
26 year veteran PT and practice owner
GREAT podcast for veteran and novice PTs, PTAs, and trainers. I really like the Q&A forum. Wish it was around when I was a new grad! I have shared this link with all of my colleagues as well as the many students who have matriculated through my small sports medicine clinic. Mike and Lenny offer sage advice to the novice( follow the work, align yourself to learn from good mentors, "there is something to learn from every experience"). They also remind the veteran to self educate, and value the teaching process with both students and the patient. Bravo gentlemen!!!
Great information for all involved in training individuals. They are proficient at bridging science and application of training tools.
Listen to this podcast every morning on my way to my clinical rotation. It's a great way to get the gears turning before I arrive at the clinic. Wish that there were more frequent posts! Starting to run out! Keep up the great work.
Best guys after Kevin Wilk - I have gotten 10 times better as a PT every day with their advice and medical tips!
ATC, SPT '18
I recently found the Mike Reinold show and have almost listened to every episode. As an athletic trainer and future physical therapist I love the show. They talk about a variety of topics within the profession and get the view points of physical therapists with various years of experience as well as with different niches. It is an easy listen and every episode is worth your while. Even if you aren't a physical therapist, athletic trainer, personal trainer or strength and conditioning coach I think many people who are interested in fitness and injury prevention would enjoy it.
I have really enjoyed the podcasts. I believe they are very informative across multi levels. The one suggestion I would have is to show a demonstration of the exercise you were talking about, specifically correct form of those exercises. It's great to talk about it, but if people don't know the exact exercise and how to do it, it may be lost on the importance of those exercises. Otherwise looking forward to the next one.
I have been a fan of Mike's blog/ web content since 2010. I like the Q&A format with short and direct answers. However, being a glutton for more information, I would love for the CPT&P crew to focus on one subject matter / question and give a nice long discussion/ debate.
Also, I know Mike has a ton of info on his blog. So if he already previously wrote an article on one the questions he answered, it would be awesome to put a link to that article on the show notes or email.
On the whole, it's an informative and entertaining podcast.
Highly recommend this podcast and the Inner Circle! Mike and Lenny are crazy smart with absolutely no ego. Appreciate how all thoughts are supported with rationale. Don't miss out on the opportunity to learn from them
Great info about a wide range of topics, and the length is prefect for my morning commute. Keep up the good work!
Best PT Podcast available
Mike, Lenny, Dave, Gabe and any other special guests do an excellent job on this podcast. The episodes are short and sweet, but very informative. As a graduating PT student in just a few weeks, I have been able to take information from this podcast and supplement it with the way I want to practice. But, at the same time, they portray the information in such a way that it is easy for anyone to understand and really enjoy. They are receptive to any question and really take the time to give their honest and genuine opinions. Honestly, it makes driving in the car a whole lot better than the radio. Thanks, guys!
