Therapy Insiders Podcast

You may be asking yourself…..”self, what insider information could I possibly want or need regarding physical therapy, sports medicine, rehabilitation and medicine.” Well, very good question. There is a ton of information regarding treatment techniques, philosophies, and medicine. But how do you separate the fluff from useful relevant information? Our mission is to gain inside(r) input and perspective on all the information floating around from the experts and then dissect it…figuratively. We will present each of these topics and more in an objective way, and then pick them apart to get to the core of what is useful in the clinical setting. We have several prominent guests lined up for interviews to help shed light on various therapeutic topics ranging from joint manipulations, functional training, business ownership while being a clinician, sports rehab and much more. We cover Physical Therapy (PT), Manual therapy, rehab, sports medicine, business practice, and many more topics. Show hosted by Gene Shirokobrod PT, DPT, OMPT, Joe Palmer PT, DPT, OMPT, CSCS and Erson Religioso III, DPT, MS, MTC, CertMDT, CFC, CSCS, FMT, FAAOMPT

About Matthew from https://www.matthew-ibrahim.com/about

PERSONAL MISSION

I consider myself a lifelong student of the field. In my decade of experience, I've had the privilege of working with thousands of clients and athletes in the private sector and in the team atmosphere. It has become my personal mission to help the fields of strength and conditioning and sports rehabilitation grow as much as possible through my coaching, my voice, and my content.

 My ultimate goal is to consistently provide simple information that is digestible to the masses. Intelligent movement, strength, and performance should be no secret—this information should be shared through the proper avenues to help promote physical strength development in training and to help reduce the rate of injury in performance. This is what drives me.

CAREER EXPERIENCE

Throughout my career, I've worked with members from professional organizations in the NHL, NBA, NFL, and MLB. Additionally, I've had the pleasure of working with the general population from all walks of life, including the likes of powerlifters, Olympic weightlifters, CrossFit athletes, marathon runners, and triathletes.

Working with healthy and injured athletes alike in both training and treatment, I've also been utilized regularly as a consultant with sports teams, collegiate athletic programs, and corporate companies. Most importantly, I view human connection, effective communication, and complete individualization as the most powerful coaching tools, regardless of service.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

I place a strong emphasis on personal growth and continued education, in order to better serve the individuals I work with. Primarily, I focus on a movement-based approach through progressive strength development and technical skill acquisition. I am a proud graduate of the University of Massachusetts Boston where I obtained my Bachelors of Science Degree in Exercise and Health Sciences, and the Cortiva Institute where I obtained my License in Manual Therapy.

As someone who stresses the value of walking the walk alongside my athletes and clients, it's important for me to consistently work on my own physical preparation as well. My most recent athletic endeavors have taken place on the powerlifting platform with competition bests of 385 squat, 285 bench press, and 465 deadlift.

CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE FIELD

My work has been published and featured in Men's Fitness, STACK, The Personal Trainer Development Center, The CrossFit Journal, Juggernaut Training Systems, UpDoc Media, Sports Rehab Expert, Boston Magazine, and Breaking Muscle.

 As a public speaker, I have been provided with opportunities to present at EXOS at Google Headquarters, The Micheli Center, NEHRSA, along with several Strength & Conditioning facilities and Exercise Physiology/Doctor of Physical Therapy academic programs. The Hip Hinge 101 Workshop, which I co-teach alongside Dr. Zak Gabor, has been presented in Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, Colorado, and Vermont.

FAVORITE QUOTE

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

—Theodore Roosevelt

About John from www.drjohnrusin.com

DR. JOHN RUSIN

My name is Dr. John Rusin, and I’m not your run of the mill physical therapist.

 After first mastering my craft as a traditional and hardcore strength & conditioning coach, I have transitioned my practice into the field of sports performance physical therapy. I now live and breathe all aspects of human performance, creating life-altering programs for an impressive and diverse clientele. My single-minded goal is to bridge the ever-growing gap between high-performance strength and conditioning and cutting-edge rehabilitation methodology for both elite strength athletes and amateur fitness fanatics.

In a fitness culture full of downright dangerous and misleading information, I bring over a decade of high-level training experience along with advanced degrees in both Exercise Science and Physical Therapy to create the ultimate result oriented programming for my clients. This synergy of academia and in-field training experience sets the tone for intelligently designed approaches to fitness and performance.

From NFL and MLB athletes to competitive powerlifters and bodybuilders, I have developed recovery, regeneration, and prehab-rehab programs for some of the world’s best power athletes.

Dr. John Rusin on Therapy Insiders podcastMy game changing ideas that have been directly perfected over the years with thousands of my current and former patients and clients have caught the attention of the most innovative and impactful fitness media outlets in the world. Along with teaching these methods internationally, I have published over 30 professional articles that have left their stamp on an industry in dire need of a change for the greater good.

All that being said, I am most proud of having played a key roll in keeping my clients and readers performing at the brink of their physical limits. Everyday I strive to give my absolute and unconditional best to better my clients, my community and the fitness industry as a whole, one success story at a time.

PERSONAL PHILOSOPHY

I believe that every patient is unique. I believe that a system based on sound principles will trump a collection of methods. I am not quite sure that all we can change matters or that what matters can always be changed. I think perturbing the system, as long as adaptation is positive, is a good thing.
