Hi Everyone,

We wanted to make you aware of what we believe is a valuable and free resource for your practice. Assuring carryover of home stretching is often important, but finding stretches specific to your style of manual therapy can be difficult. If MFR is your specialty, then you will find the Myofascial Release Patient Handouts useful. We have just made the page even easier to navigate as well as adding four new stretches. All are fully reproducible by you in PDF format with space at the top for your letterhead. Enjoy this free and valuable resource from Foundations in Myofascial Release Seminars. No strings attached or sales pitch intended!

Teres Major…Steak. Really?

I am a carnivore. I have come to terms with this. I was a vegetarian for a number of years, but drifted back to what was more comfortable. I know what I’m eating, even though the named cut of meat little resembles it’s anatomical name. A strip steak or ribeye give one little clue as to it’s origin. Even though I know that the tenderloin is the cow’s psoas, I feel there is a degree of separation that allows me not to think too much about its origin.

This all changed this morning, with an article in my local newspaper’s living section on the “new” steaks. Among a few innocuous named cuts was the Teres Major, as well as a recipe for this cut. My degree of separation was completely demolished. Is this crafty meat marketing or a major mistake? Maybe only those with some degree of anatomical knowledge will be bothered by this new cut. Count me in that group.

For now,

Walt Fritz, PT
