Fantastic post by Erik Meira which floats my confirmation biases boat.
“Load is simple but the effects are not. When someone simply moves against a weight, there is a lot of complex stuff going on.
Structural. Neuromotor. Psychological. Hormonal. Cardiovascular. Expectancy violation.
As physical therapists [Physiotherapists], the tool that we have in order to apply that stress is load in the form of external weight. Now the application of load requires a thoughtful approach which is why I like to say that we are in the business of load management.”
