Part 1: Why you should invest in your health with a Physical Therapist. Valuing the expertise and schooling involved in the profession of Physical Therapy.
Rethinking Movement : How do you move daily? Is it causing you pain? Will it cause you pain in the future? How to change your habits to improve your health.
This is where a Physical Therapist, skilled in human movement, can be beneficial to you. Physical Therapists help heal, rehabilitate and have the knowledge to educate you with prevention.
“Form Follows Function”; this is an old statement that has stuck with me since P.T. school and seems to be a statement I teach and rehabilitate by: When you do an activity over and over again, your body adapts to that activity. Likewise, when you do no activity, your body also adapts. For example if you sit all day, your back will become rounded, shoulders hunched and your head will start to pull forward. Your musculoskeletal system will start to form into this position and certain muscles will become overactive and tight, throwing off the symmetry and flow of your body.
Having a Physical Therapist as part of your individual health routine is a must! People should have a Physical Therapist in their lives as they have Dentists and Doctors. I am on several missions in my life, professionally and personally; but I want to share with you now one of my Professional missions.
That the Physical Therapy Profession and all those great Physical Therapists are valued for our knowledge, skill set and the ability to formulate a plan of care that transforms people’s lives while moving them forward with longevity. With the changes in Health Care and with the Profession’s structure changing to DIRECT access , we have more autonomy to help all people who want our expertise without being controlled by Insurance companies!!!
