FTCA Podcast #10 - Charlie Weingroff

Charlie Weingroff is a legend.  He's one of a kind.  Join me as we take a journey into the mind of CW, you will like what you find.  

As well, if you have not tapped into CW's Training = Rehab series, it is a MUST!  You can find out more at his website http://charlieweingroff.com

Charlie's website bio:

"Charlie is a Doctor of Physical Therapy, a Certified Athletic Trainer, and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist.  He is currently a Physical Therapist and Strength & Conditioning Coach at Drive 495 in Manhattan, NY and Fit For Life in Marlboro, NJ.  He also is a member of the Nike Executive Performance Council and serves as the Physical Performance Lead and Head Strength & Conditioning Coach for the Canadian Men’s National Basketball Team.  Prior to returning to his home of NJ, he was the Director of Physical Performance and Resiliency and Lead Physical Therapist for the United States Marines Corps Special Operations Command in Camp Lejeune, NC.    He graduated from Ursinus College with a degree in Exercise and Sports Science in 1996, and went on to earn an MSPT in 1999 and DPT in 2010 from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.

Beginning in 1998, Charlie spent 12 seasons of professional basketball, highlighted by his time as the Head Strength & Conditioning Coach and Assistant Athletic Trainer for the Philadelphia 76ers in the NBA.   Among the highlights of his tenure in Philadelphia was being part of the medical staff that ranked 1st in the NBA in Player Missed Games in the 2005-06 season.

Through rehabbing patients, he subscribes to a movement-based approach popularized by the works of Gray Cook, Mike Boyle, Val Nsedkin, Dr. Pavel Kolar, and Louie Simmons.  In training athletes and clients, he champions the principles of the Functional Movement Screen and sound, evidence-based training principles.  Some of the methodologies Charlie is formally trained in include DNS, ART, Dry Needling, Graston, FMS/SFMA, TPI, and StrongFirst.

Aside from working with patients, athletes and clients, he is also under the bar himself.  In 2007, he achieved AAPF Elite status in the 220 weight class with a total of 1915 pounds. His best powerlifting competition total is 800 squat, 510 bench press and 605 deadlift."

FTCA Podcast #9 - Dr. Blake Kalkstein - Chirospark

Dr. Blake Kalkstein is a fire breathing dragon.  He's intense, ready to go.  I believe he is what straight chiro's call "on purpose".  He's also an authentic guy.  And authenticity rules the day here in FTCA Land.  

It takes us a while to get warmed up in this episode, but once we do...  look out!  Packed with valuable content and entertaining banter.  Enjoy.  And don't forget to check out chirospark and don't miss out on seeing Dr. Kalkstein present at Forward KC (www.forwardthinkingchiro.com)

FTCA Podcast #7 - ZDoggMD - Healthcare 3.0

What a blast of a podcast!  Dr. Damania (ZDoggMD) blends humor with education to fulfill the mission of changing the healthcare landscape.  This was an interesting podcast in that not only did I interview ZDogg, but ZDogg turned around and interviewed me!  I think what we have discovered through our conversation is that it is time for ALL of us to get on board with "Medicine 3.0", and that it is high time for "Chiropractic 3.0".

Please support ZDogg's mission to make healthcare better FOR ALL and check him out at http://zdoggmd.com.

FYI, the 2008 Research work I mentioned concerning chiropractic and stroke (or lack of correlation between the two) can be found here:  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2271108/

FTCA Podcast #5 - Kevin Christie DC - Modern Marketing

Dr. Kevin, as I mention in the brief intro, is a man with many irons in the fire.  First and foremost, he runs the Modern Chiropractic Marketing Facebook Group, which you should join.  He is also the Corporate Chiropractor (thecorporatechiro.com), runs his own chiropractic practice in Boca Raton, Florida, and has two podcasts; The Modern Chiropractic Marketing Podcast (www.modernchiropracticmarketing.com), and the Modern Desk Jockey podcast.  Phew

Enjoy the show.  I know I did!

FTCA Podcast #4 - Jeff Langmaid DC - The Evidence Based Chiropractor

Dr. Langmaid brings the heat.  The evidence based heat.  Jeff is always offering great insight, always on task and focused on his mission at hand.  But in this podcast I get a chance to slow him down and ask him his opinions on the state of the profession.  It's just an overall great conversation (in my humble opinion) with someone who is fearlessly making a difference for the better in our profession.

As well, in the BLOG section of the FTCA website, we go even deeper into a part 2 conversation with Dr. Langmaid that you won't want to miss.  That's for members only though, so if you're not a member, you'll want to join us for a listen.  This one podcast alone should be worth your price of admission.

FTCA Podcast #3 - Gregg Friedman DC - Documentation Megastar

Dr. Friedman joins us for our third episode of the FTCA podcast.  What a gem.  I had a great time hearing Dr. Greg weave stories of documentation delight.  Don't roll your eyes at the subject, because Gregg makes it entertaining!  Must listen.  Enjoy!

Don't forget to catch Gregg at one of his seminars which you can find at www.gotdocumentation.com

Gregg will also be speaking at FORWARD - KC, The first annual convention of the Forward Thinking Chiropractic Alliance, June 1-3 2018.  www.forwardthinkingchiro.com
