Podcast #38: Neurology and Pain with Jeff Moyer


“No one system of the body gets injured alone and no one system of the body heals alone.”

“I’ve never assessed an athlete who has knee pain, non-contact related, that was not a heel striker when they run.”

“Total Motion Release Technique, in a nutshell is just, use the good side to fix the bad side.”

Dealing with ground reaction forces: “If I walked on clouds all day maybe my knee feels great… it’s how our body interacts with the ground that causes a chain reaction.”

“That’s the hardest mechanical flaw to fix… is get them off their heels.”

“You can’t necessarily get them to change something if they’re not aware of it… sensory information is what’s going to drive the bus on this.”

“The foot is either going to be adaptive or causative… is the foot adapting to what’s going on up the chain or is it the cause?”

“Ankle sprains aren’t just ankle sprains, they’re brain injuries. The mapping of that injury remains in the brain.”

Tibia/Fibula Rotation:

  • They don’t know how to rotate it
  • When they do, it doesn’t move great
  • If it does, it’s usually out better than in

“The tendons and muscles are just the dumping ground for dural issues, sympathetic issues.”

“You might get the knee feeling better but if you still have a vestibular issue, that knee pain is coming back.”
