Shirley Sahrmann PT, PhD, FAPTA

Welcome back to the podcasts!  This episode features Shirley Sahrmann.  Many of you likely know of Shirley from her research, teachings with Washington University in St. Louis, or her texts for Movement System Impairment Syndromes.  I wanted to speak with Shirley to gain a better perspective on her background and thoughts regarding her point of view.  I’ve noticed more in more in my own practice how much the neuromuscular system and create illusions of mechanical dysfunctions, so had thought that maybe Shirley could provide perspective on that.  Fortunately, Shirley corrected me on my perceptions about what Movement System Impairment Syndromes are.  I’d certainly love to speak with Shirley again about these topics, and more.  Please enjoy and let us know your thoughts!

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!
