One hour Q&A with Dr. Nessler

Over the last 15+ years I have had the pleasure of divulging into one of my true passions.  Teaching.  I initially started teaching for MDs, DCs, PTs, ATCs and strength coaches back in 1997.  Since then, I have been blessed to teach all over the US and abroad.  I love sharing the passion for what we do, how we do it and what we are learning.  Last year alone, I was blessed to teach at 35+ conferences in the US.  Since COVID-19, this has led to an entirely new way of teaching for me, virtually.  Although I fully anticipated this to be the year that I did a lot less teaching, it has actually turned out to be one of the busiest teaching years yet.  

This blog was initially started as a way to provide the athletes I treated with an avenue to get reliable evidence based information.  However, it has expanded to be much more than that.  Today, we get over 100 views a day and majority of these are professionals looking for evidence based information.  I am honored you would come here for that.  You have no idea how seriously I take that.  Over the five history of this blog, I have never done a video Q&A.  Recently, however, I was afforded the opportunity to take live Q&A about movement, what we are learning and how we can apply this to our practice.  

In an effort to give back to my faithful viewers, I decided to try something a little different for this series.  I have broken this one hour Q&A into small 2-3 minute snippets.  I hope you enjoy and if this is something you would like to see more of or some specific questions, please message me on either instagram or twitter (both below) and I am happy to address.

Question 1: What was the inspiration to start looking at movement at the depth you do for the last 20 years?

Question 2: How did you choose the movements that you look at and why?

Question 3: How are you evaluating movement for making more informed return to play decisions?

I hope you found this information valuable.  Next week, we will have the next three Q&A from the webinar.  As always, I appreciate all our followers and hope you find the information we provide useful in your practice with your athletes.  If you do, please follow me on instragram @bjjpt_acl_guy and Twitter @acl_prevention.  I also just launched a new website,  My vision is to create a movement revolution in the world of ACL rehab.  Check it out, hear more about my story and where we are headed.  Train hard and stay well.  #ViPerformAMI #ACLPlayItSafe
