09.19.11 :: Ulm to Receive advanced certification in Biomechanics
While treating athletes at the Revolution 3 triathlon, I was also testing for an advanced certification in biomechanics awarded by Active Release Technique. The test involved watching several triathletes run, properly identifying the problematic motions in their gait and then effectively treating them. The biomechanics certification enhances the my eye for aberrant motion in my patient’s form as they perform their sporting event (i.e. running, throwing, hitting a golf call, etc.). Having a higher understand of biomechanics and a keener eye for dysfunctional movement allows me to better treat the cause of the problem by restoring proper motion and function. Addressing the dysfunction not only helps get the patient or athlete out of pain faster, but it decreases the chances of the problem reoccurring and it allows the athlete to perform at a higher level. This certification has already raised the quality of the care I am able to supply to my patients.

09.19.11 :: Dr. Ulm treats athletes at the Revolution 3 triathlon
From September 9th though the 11th, I was up in Sandusky, Ohio treating the triathletes competing in the Revolution 3 event held at Cedar Point. Revolution 3 is a series of triathlons which are the same length as an “Ironman” (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and a full 26.2 marathon). The great thing about the Revolution 3 events is that they are more of a family affair. You have professional athletes competing right along with regular people who are just out to finish their first triathlon. It was a very energetic and encouraging environment. I treated a Canadian National Champion and an Iraq war veteran (injured in battle) in the same day. Doctors actually told this awesome guy that he might never be able to walk again. Very inspirational. It was a lot of fun to have been able to interact with and help these athletes perform at their best. For more information about the Revolution 3 events, visit www.rev3tri.com.
Triathletes find Active Release Technique to be profoundly helpful as they push their body’s to the limit. It allows them to prevent injury, sustain a higher volume and intensity of training, both of which ultimately lead to improved performance.
Active Release is not just for triathletes. It is useful for many soft tissue problems such as sprain/strain, carpel tunnel syndrome, rotatory cuff issues and head aches.

06.15.11 :: Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization Seminar
This Thursday through Sunday, I will be in St. Louis, MO learning from perhaps the greatest manual therapist of our times, Pavel Kolar. Dr. Kolar resides in Prague, Czech Republic. He will be presenting on a treatment approach to musculoskeletal problems that is based heavily in developmental kinesiology (how we learn to crawl and walk). This approach utilizes exercises and neurology to assess and treat functional and neruo-mechanical problems such as shoulder impingement and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Also instructing at this seminar is Dr. Brett Winchester, DC, Dr. Clayton Skaggs, DC and Robert Larder, PT, all of whom are very well respected in the world of manual therapy.
06.15.11 :: Dr. Ulm to Speak at Second Sole
I will be doing a short presentation about common inures associated with marathon training at Second Sole shoe store in Gahanna, OH. (315 Stoneridge Lane Gahanna, OH 43230-6779). Second Sole will be putting on a catered event to celebrate the start of this season’s weekly fun runs. The run starts at 6:30p and food and drinks will be available at 7:00p. Come by and check it out and see one of the best running shoe stores in Ohio.
I hope to see you there.
03.21.11 :: Treating the Throwing Athlete
I had the pleasure of attending and presenting at the Motion Palpation Institute’s Master’s seminar “Considerations and Treatment of the Throwing Athlete” in St. Louis, MO on June 4th and 5th. Dr. Winchester, DC and Dr. Campbell, DC covered the functional approach to assessing and treating these special athletes. Dr. Randi Davis, DC introduced the basic mechanics behind a softball pitch. TJ Matthews (a former major league player taught by Tom House , a world renowned pitching coach) covered the biomechanics of a baseball pitch. We also had the pleasure of Dr. Matthew Smith, MD, an orthopedic surgeon at Washing University -St. Louis, who was also a fellow at the prestigious Andrews Sports Medicine clinic. Dr. Smith covered the common injuries seen with throwing athletes and reviewed the surgical corrections for the injuries. I introduced the, as I called it, “other” throwing movements – those of track and field. The seminar was very informative. I am glad that I was able to be a part of such an outstanding team.
