UPDATE: Mobilization of the AC Joint

Check out our latest video. It’s actually another different way of mobilizing the AC joint. I actually like it a lot better than our previous video (although they really aren’t doing the same thing). So, check out this update and try it out on your patients. Then, let us know what you think!

Jack Stagge PT, OCS, FAAOMPT

This is our latest interview with a high-caliber manual therapist. Jack Stagge is a physical therapist that teaches coursework that was pioneered by the late-great Bob Elvey. I actually have had the privelage of being a student under Jack many years ago, and even got to live in his house during that time. He is certainly an extremely talented manual therapist, but is without a doubt an even better human being. You get to hear Jack tell stories of his past, his thoughts on what makes our specialty special, and his personal relationship with one of his biggest mentors (Bob Elvey). Please enjoy this conversation with Jack!
