Kelly Starrett: on Resolving Pain, Preventing Injury, and Optimizing Athletic Performance

“All human beings should be able to perform basic maintenance on themselves.” – Dr. Kelly Starrett

I’m really pleased to be able to bring you this interview today. Kelly Starrett is an elite athlete, a doctor of physical therapy and the founder of the Starrett Method of Movement and Mobility.

In this interview, we’re going to look at the methods Kelly uses to treat body stiffness, achy joints, rehabilitate injuries and keep active – without needing to seek out medical professionals.

This is perfectly aligned with the my philosophy of using knowledge and understanding to empower individuals and help them become healthy. So enjoy the interview and I look forwards to reading your comments.

Optimising body use and mechanics for performance and efficient movement is something I’m very interested in – and any athlete should be as well. It’s Occam’s razor – there’s always a simplest way to do things – and that’s usually the best way as well.

Good interview. I agree that injury prevention is something we can all do – whether we’re medically trained or not. Good advice!

Hey – great interview. I get sore hips from martial arts sometimes – and I know I don’t warm up enough and do stretch and maintenance properly. It’s sometimes just a case of not knowing what the best exercises to do are – and I’m sure that if I did have a really good routine, that I knew worked, then I’d use it. There’s just so many conflicting advice out there.

Hi Jonathan
Your Trigger Point System is the best system I have come across that works on physical body pain. Is it possible for me to buy your course for a friend, and you send the course to his email address?
Kelly’s book Becoming a Supple Leopard I feel will blend well with your system and help people improve their health.

Injury prevention is so important! I’m an athlete and have suffered two injuries (I definitely could have prevented one of them) that had me out of the game for months. Thanks for sharing this interview.
