Spring Class: Traveling Fellows Explore the Southwest

The spring 2014 Sports Physical Therapy Section Travelling Fellowship was an exciting experience for three Sports Physical Therapists: Daniel Hass, PT, DPT, SCS (Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH), Chris Juneau, PT, DPT, SCS (Ironman Sports Institute, Houston, TX), and Matt Owens, PT, DPT, SCS, ATC (Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, Atlanta, GA).  The three Fellows flew into Houston, TX to kick off the program with host Physical Therapist Russ Paine, PT (shown above with the Fellows) at Memorial Hermann. In addition to observing Russ in action in the clinic, the Fellows had the opportunity to meet and interact with the rehabilitation and training staff of the Houston Rockets (Head Athletic Trainer Keith Jones and Director of Strength and Conditioning Darryl Eto) and Houston Texans (Head Athletic Trainer/Physical Therapist Geoff Kaplan and Assistant Athletic Trainer/Physical Therapist Roland Ramirez). Other stops in Houston included Baseball USA with pitching coach David Evans and River Oaks Country club with golf professional Bruce Davidson.

The next stop was Scottsdale, AZ with host Todd Ellenbecker, MS, PT, SCS, OCS, CSCS, where the Fellows observed a busy Ellenbecker at Physiotherapy Associates treating a majority of shoulder/elbow athletes. The fellows then spent an afternoon with Todd and USTA Tennis Director David Critchley, where they observed some of the top amateur tennis players train. The Fellows travelled 20 miles west the next day to Physiotherapy Associates in Glendale, AZ where Keith Kocher, PT, MOMT, FAAOMPT, and colleagues treated a number of overhead athletes. The last day of the Traveling Fellowship ended with Head Athletic Trainer Ken Krenshaw and the Arizona Diamondbacks rehabilitation and training staff at the brand new Talking Stick spring training facility. Not only did the Fellows spend hours observing and interacting with the training staff, but were also able to catch a spring training game to wrap up the day!

The Fellows gave presentations at each location on a topic of their own clinical interest.  Daniel presented “Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction in the Athlete,” Chris presented “Tendinopathy:  A New Way to Treat An Old Problem,” and Matt presented “Functional Testing for Return to Sport” .  The Fellows also had opportunities to hear lectures from the staff at each location on different topics related to Sports Physical Therapy, such as Dr David Carfagno of Scottsdale Sports Medicine Institute’s discussion of acute management of triathalon injuries.  There were plenty of social activities worked into the schedule, including basketball and baseball games, a cookout at Russ’ home, and other excellent restaurants  The Fellows also had ample time to ask clinical questions of their host PTs. The SPTS Traveling Fellowship was an exciting opportunity for three PTs to see first-hand how some of our leaders in the Sports Physical Therapy community have reached the level they are currently at. This insight was one of the most rewarding aspects of the experience. Hearing how Russ and Todd developed their careers, the sacrifices they made, and the relationships they built was very inspiring for the three Fellows. Special thanks to the Sports Physical Therapy Section of the APTA and DJO Global who funded the Traveling Fellowship and made this experience possible!
