Blake Dircksen

Blake Dircksen is a licensed physical therapist at Bespoke Treatments in NYC. He's also a VDOT Coach and athlete at NYAC. He competed at Indiana University and received his Doctor of Physical Therapy at NYU. 

Blake consults and treats a lot of athletes on VDOT O2 today. In this episode, we talk a lot about how he’s adapting his approach as a PT in the age of COVID-19 and how a PT can be effective in a remote capacity. Blake was a big proponent of “digital health” even prior to this global pandemic.

We also talk about what athletes can be doing at home in regards to prehab, how to incorporate strength into your routine and why the concept of “load management” is the centerpiece of his approach. Blake's response to most injuries as a PT comes in the form of modifying their training loads and manipulating their training stressors - just like a coach would.
