Running Injuries

Most common reasons, and how to avoid!

Our friend and colleague Dr. Christopher Johnson, a premiere physical therapist and coach from the Seattle area, recently wrote this wonderful piece for Outside Magazine on the most common mistakes runners make and strategies to avoid them. Perfect timing as the running season starts to ramp up around the country and everyone begins eyeing big goals. Share with runners in your community to help keep more of them healthy on the trails this year!

Fitness Forward Healthcare

Are we on the verge of a different (better) era??

ICE CEO Jeff Moore recently sat down with Mike Giardina of CrossFit Health to discuss what it means to be a “Fitness Forward” provider, offering true HEALTHcare as an alternative to our current SICKcare insurance model, and how CrossFit affiliates/coaches can develop relationships with ICETrained rehab providers to keep more athletes healthy, in the gym, and crushing their goals.


Single or multiple joint exercise for the win?

Is it all about those compound movements or hyper focus on a single muscle? This recent systematic review hot off the Strength and Conditioning Journal press delivers this finding: “We conclude that current evidence indicates similar whole muscle hypertrophy between MJ and SJ training”. Make sure to take a peek at the article however for good discussion about how a combination of both may be best strategy for complete muscle development.

Also for those looking for a convenient share, Schoenfeld’s IG post is solid!

    Chronic Pain

    Are exclusion criteria limiting relevance?

    “The frequent use of psychosocial exclusions is especially compromising to generalizability because chronic pain commonly co-occurs with psychiatric comorbidities”

    We’ve all likely thought exclusion criteria tend to rule out most of our actual patients across many conditions, but this is perhaps an even larger concern with our chronic pain population.

    A Word From Our Sponsor JANE!

    Lighten your workload with intake forms that take care of themselves!

    Streamlining your collection of Intake Forms doesn’t just mean freeing up desk space, it also means freeing up your time!

    Jane’s electronic Intake Forms can be used to collect your patient’s health history, contact and insurance information, consent, and credit card information for convenient checkout via Jane Payments.

    Let Jane automatically send an Intake Form when an appointment is booked online or administratively, and if you patient hasn’t completed it 24 hours before their appointment, Jane will even send them an email reminder asking them to fill it out.

    To see Jane in action, book a 1-on-1 demo with a member of our support team.
