The Agenda and Line-up for the 2009 MGH Sports Medicine Conference at which I’ll be speaking alongside some really smart dudes.  While you’re checking it out, read over Mike Reinold’s stuff; Mike is the assistant athletic trainer for the Boston Red Sox and consistently puts out great material for the physical therapy community in his blog.

    Dear Eric,

    Keep becoming the great informer that you are. We met briefly at the PB summit in Providence. I’m down at Appalachian State University getting my masters in exercise science and you continue to be a powerful influence on my development, education, and thought process. Could you talk a little more about posterior pelvic tilt. My left pelvis has slipped posteriorly and inferiorly due to a bike crash a while back. My current thought process is that this would put my hip flexors into a elongated position and weaken/loosen the tension on my hamstrings. I seem to have poor internal rotation ROM and general sit in external rotation. Is this the correct thought process? Any corrective exercise/regular movements that I should be focusing on? I’m doing a fair amount of single leg RDLs. Take care and keep up the great work!

    Carpe Diem,
    Mark Woodall
