Clinically Pressed



The long and short of it is that the three of us started getting together every Wednesday morning to drink coffee, take a break and figure out how we were going to make an impact (and how we could work together to do so). We called it 'Solving the World's Problems Coffee Hour'. We chatted about all kinds of ideas: research, new workouts, combining things, and crazy ideas we heard on podcasts.Then it dawned on us. We should start a podcast. Yep, that is how we thought we might be able to make a dent into the worlds problems (it all starts with a dent, right?) So here we are now. Several months of planning, brainstorming and politely asking Kyle's friend Justin (the awesome AV guy) if he could help us out. So what it's all about is that Clinically Pressed is going to be a traveling podcast and we will be recording on location. We are going to interview experts around the country from all health/nutrition/performance professions as well as include round table discussions covering major topics and questions. Our goal is to provide as much information as we can that is useful to viewers/listeners, and do it all at no cost. We want to make the complicated simple and make it something you can apply to your life. We hope you enjoy!


  • CP Short-WWAR: Nudge

    06/05/2022 Duração: 13min

    It can be hard to get people to do things, but are there ways to try and get people more likely to do things? This book takes a look at that, can be ‘nudge’ people to make decisions that can help them and beyond. Opt in vs opt out, anchoring, fear of loss, systems and regression to the norm. In this short we talk about how these concepts can apply to health, fitness, and performance to help get better results and more buy in.

  • CI Research Review: TpDN and PF Pain and Thickness

    24/03/2022 Duração: 10min

    Plantar fascia pain is a real pain in the foot and can be difficult to manage. This study looks at how treatment of trigger points in the calf musculature can impact the thickness of the plantar fascia as well as the pain the patient is feeling. We discuss what this means and how you can apply to your own care and management of plantar fascia pain. Lots of good ideas coming out to this one that you can practically apply. Reference: Saein, A.

  • REPLAY: Clinical Insight: Chronic Pain and the Radiculo-Neuropathic Myofascial Pain Model

    22/03/2022 Duração: 16min

    In this Clinical Insight we take a shallow dive into the Radiculo-Neuropathic Myofascial Pain Model. This model was heavily influenced by Dr. Chan Gunn. It is a very solid model in the evaluation and treatment of chronic pain as it takes into consideration a lot of key components that play a role in the production of chronic pain. We talk through how the combination of Cannon’s Law, denervation and other factors play a role in chronic pain based on how this model describes it. At the end we discuss what are some practical recommendations that you can try immediately to see if there is something you can do if you are dealing with chronic pain.    Check it out, leave a comment and we will continue the discussion as well as we can to keep helping make the complicated simple.   BOOK LINK: Treatment of Chronic Pain (   #Podcast #Clinically #Pressed #Wellness #Performance #Nutrition #ComplicatedSimple #Science #fitness #health #strength #athletics #medical #training #exer

  • REPLAY Ep. 53: Greg Nuckols-Stronger by Science

    23/02/2022 Duração: 47min

    We got to sit down and talk with Greg Nuckols.  Greg is the found and huge contributor to 'Stronger by Science'.  This is a blog and email newsletter that breaks down the science that is out there when it comes to strength training.  Greg is in the middle of his Master's degree to continue to increase his knowledge of how research works and how to best utilize it to get the results we are looking for. ​  We talk about how it is hard to fully understand research and even when you think that you do understand it there is no promise that how the statistics were run that what you are going in the conclusion is correct.  Greg talks bout a lot of the ways to get around these pitfalls and what he and his team are trying to do in order to help set a better standard when it comes to the science of getting strong and performing well.  Great episode if you're into the research.   Subscribe:   Find everything and s

  • Research Review: Anecdote vs. Statistical Information

    17/02/2022 Duração: 09min

    Trying to convince someone that a certain technique, item or program is the most effective can be a daunting task. There are many ways in which to communicate the information but which way is most effective? Telling stories and testimonials? Or getting them the hard facts and statistics about why something works? In this research review we looks at that very question and provides some insight on when and where to use different types of information to help make your case. Reference: Freling, T.

  • WWAR: The Four Hour Body-Tim Ferriss

    04/02/2022 Duração: 07min

    The title is meant to be as catchy as it is but the content is still solid and worth digging into. Tim Ferriss breaks down many areas of health and fitness and how you can implement those ideas with the minimal amount of time required, i.e. the 4 hour body. Whether you are looking to drop a few pounds or gain a few pounds of muscle, there is a way to try and do it with the minimal effective dose. If you are just starting out or a practitioner just looking for new ideas there is something for you in this book.

  • CI: Structured Principles w/ Flexibility

    26/01/2022 Duração: 12min

    It can be great to have protocols and principles you work off of but if they become too rigid it can cause issues with either rushing someone or holding them back unnecessarily. In this Insight we talk about having structured principles while also maintaining some flexibility and reserving the right to change your mind or change course when the situation calls for it. This idea can be implemented in health, fitness, sports medicine and more, including leadership. Check it out.

  • Research Review: Barriers and Motivators to Health and Fitness

    12/01/2022 Duração: 11min

    It is important to identify not only barriers to health and fitness but also the motivators that help people get to where they want to be. We are hoping to bring some potential solutions through Clinically Pressed but these are so key for both people trying to get health and fit but also for the people that serve them. We did a small mini-review to help identify and discuss them.

  • CI: What is NEW is OLD

    05/01/2022 Duração: 08min

    Very little is new in the worlds of strength & conditioning/nutrition/fitness/performance yet, more and more seems to be coming out. How is that? Well most of it is in the interpretation, consolidation, and ultimately implementation of this information that can make it new and effective. It is ok for practitioners not to discover the “next big thing” if you can collect ideas and thoughts and ultimately apply it to the individuals you work with. This can make you highly adaptable and useful to those you serve (or you should look for this in someone if searching for services). Being able to take different ideas and utilize them with the people you work with can make you most effective as you don’t force something on to someone when it doesn’t fit.

  • Research Review: Exercise Snacks

    23/12/2021 Duração: 10min

    This research review looks at a study that utilized “research snacks” to see the effects on insulin, glucose and free fatty acids after melas throughout the day. These “snacks” consisted of ascending 3 flights of stairs as fast as possible every hour throughout the day. Each time would take between 10-20s. The results showed that for an overweight and obese group there was a decrease in insulin and free fatty acid levels, no changes in these levels occurred in a healthy group. Interesting concept to help control blood levels with a minimal amount of effort throughout the day. Check it out. Fafiei, H., Omidian, K., Myette-Cote, E., & Little, J.P. (2020).

  • WWAR: Mindset-Carol Dweck

    18/11/2021 Duração: 17min

    This book is a must read and one that can be applied to almost every aspect of life. Whether you are training for yourself, helping someone else, or in just in implanting a growth mindset with your daily life, this is a read. The book focuses on a ‘growth’ vs. ‘fixed’ mindset and how they can impact your life. Fixed can keep you stuck and make the stakes seem higher than they need to be. A growth mindset allows for continued development and allows for adjustments to your approaches to continue to evolve. Again, highly recommend reading this book to apply it to your life.

  • Ep. 83: Dichotomy in AT

    11/11/2021 Duração: 43min

    Di’kademe/: a division or contrast between two things that are or are represented as being opposed or entirely different. Moving to one extreme or the other can be hard to balance, especially if you try and make two seemingly opposing views/perspectives try and mix together and champion both of them. This is where dichotomy comes from and the concept that you have to find balance. There are times to be aggressive but you have to be able to double back with caution because you can’t run yourself in only one direction and then immediately make a switch. Recognizing and embracing the dichotomy of ideas is important to all professions but can have some serious implications in athletic training. It is important to recognize the wide range of differing ideas but also be able to balance those in order to be maximally effective. We discussing this episode.

  • Ep. 82: ‘Wish I Knew’-Nutrition

    28/10/2021 Duração: 24min

    In this part of the ‘Wish I Knew’ series we discuss nutrition. This topic can get in depth so quickly and there are so many facets of it that it could go on for hours, we tried to keep it short. Nutrition can get really complex, very quickly and that makes it even harder to apply good principles to your life and to others you serve. Some of the major take aways I’ve learned over the years is you have to start with the basics and try and cover as much of those as you can to start. From there you can start looking into the complex but you have to remember “there is no free lunch in physiology”. Anything you choose as an intervention is going to impact other things. Here is what I’ve learned.

  • Research Review: Muscle Stiffness and Trigger Point Dry Needling

    15/10/2021 Duração: 08min

    Muscle stiffness can be correlated with muscle pain. There are many ways to try and lessen it and in this study, researchers looked at how using TpDN would impact muscle stiffness of three muscle sites (infraspinatus, erector spinae and gastroc). What they found was that the reduction in muscle stiff was immediate but transitory. It happened to reduce immediate after intervention but increased again at 24 hours. This leads to potential impacts on intervention and when/where TpDN or other soft tissue work modalities could be useful in helping reduce muscle stiffness. It doesn’t lend to the idea that only these interventions will help maintain those changes. Interesting study and while it has its limitations (stated by authors) it opens up some interesting ideas for future treatment options. Reference: Kelly, J. P., Koppenhaver, S. L., Michener, L. A., Kolber, M. J., & Cleland, J. A. (2019). Immediate decrease of muscle biomechanics stiffness following dry needling in asymptomatic participants. Journal of B

  • REPLAY Ep. 69: Dr. Jake Erickson-Youth Sports Injury Prevention

    There is still time to sign up for the 2nd Annual Youth Sports Symposium (check out our FB page or Mayo Clinic Health System's FB event page). This is an episode we recorded leading up to the initial one two years ago. The importance of Youth Sports Injury and how to hopefully prevent as many as possible.  Youth sports injuries happen, it's part of the game. Many of those injuries can be reduced or prevented with smart training and monitoring training loads. In this episode we sat down with Dr. Jake Erickson, a sports medicine physician in La Crosse, WI. Dr. Erickson details how overuse in youth injuries can have significant negative effects on a growing body. ​ Dr. Erickson gives some simple and practical steps that both youth and parents can use to help protect youth athletes. These steps include basic, solid training along with monitoring how many hours athletes are being active. ​  #complicatedsimple  #complicatedsimple #progressive #openminded #PBE #EBP #noagenda #performanc

Plenty of simple take aways to keep performance high and help enhance recovery. ​  #complicatedsimple #progressive #openminded #PBE #EBP #noagenda #performance #training #nutrition

  • Research Review: Effect of Warm Up Swings on Bat Speed

    16/09/2021 Duração: 08min

    Baseball players use all types of methods to warm up before they get up to bat. It is still common to see weighted donuts and other implements in the on deck circle as well as players swinging multiple bats at the same time. But does all of this add up to swinging the bat faster? This study takes a look how swinging different weighted bats prior to a normal bat impacts the velocity of the swing. The results may seem logically counterintuitive but it makes sense if you really think about it. Check it out. Reference: Montoya, B. S., Brown, L. E., Coburn, J. W., & Zinder, S. M. (2009). Effect of warm-up with different weight bats on normal baseball bat velocity. Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, 23(5). 1566-1569.

  • Ep. 81: "Wish I Knew"-Athletic Training

    02/09/2021 Duração: 28min

    This episode could have gone on for hours. Reflecting back on so many different things that I could have done differently in my career is almost daunting, but worth it to try and learn and shape a better career in the future. The lessons learned were not only clinical (but there were a lot of those). There were so many lessons that I should have learned earlier about interaction with patients, coaches, colleagues and others that could have made my life easier and provided better care for everyone. My hope with this one is to provide insight for any level of AT, but especially younger ATs so that they can identify areas that they can learn from earlier to help advance their career and knowledge faster than I did my own. I feel 5-7 years behind and if I can help others pick up their pace, it helps me do it with my own and makes the whole system better. I hope there are some great takeaways from this one and it generates so future learning and discussion. Check it out: #complicatedsimpl
