Overland Park-based sports physical therapist to speak at Team Concept Conference in Las Vegas

Dr. Dan Lorenz, DPT, PT, ATC/L, CSCS, a nationally-recognized sports physical therapist and speaker will be part of a lineup of highly respected clinicians, orthopedic surgeons, and sports medicine researchers at the Team Concept Conference for the Sports Physical Therapy Section of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), to be held November 30-December 2, 2017 in Las Vegas. Dr. Lorenz is the Director of Clinical Operations and owner of Specialists in Sports and Orthopedic Rehabilitation (SSOR), based in Overland Park, KS.

Dr. Lorenz will be giving two talks at the meeting and will be a part of a joint presentation in another. The first is on the safety of Olympic weightlifting for athletes who are recovering from injury and/or surgery. Olympic weightlifting is a popular method for performance enhancement, but the safety of it for those recovering from surgery has been questioned. This talk will highlight the current evidence on injury in weightlifting and provide a framework for how to implement these movements in rehabilitation and performance training.

The second talk will be on the use of blood flow restriction training in the treatment of tendinopathies. Blood flow restriction training is a hot topic in sports medicine and Dan will be joining two leaders in the industry, Johnny Owens, MPT, PT and Dr. Jim Stray-Gundersen. Blood flow restriction training has been proven to be effective for enhancing muscle hypertrophy and strength and Dr. Lorenz will explore it's potential use in treating challenging tendinopathies. Finally, Dr. Lorenz will participate in a presentation with Owens, Stray-Gundersen, and nationally-recognized physical therapist, Rob Panariello, MS, PT, ATC, CSCS of Professional Physical Therapy in New York on the use of blood flow restriction training in performance enhancement for the athlete.
