In this week's Thursday Quickie Dr. Richard Severin and I discuss:

  • The importance of being on social medial for all physical therapists.
  • Why Rich likes to nurture open discussions on social media.
  • Why the "why" matters when it comes to explaining treatments to your patients.
  • Why trust and truth is paramount in patient care.
  • Rich shares his go to resources on social media!

This was a fun Thursday Quickie with Dr. Severin and I hope it gets at least one more physical therapist to join the fun on social media!  I would even go a step further to say I hope it not only gets physical therapists to join social media, but to engage fully with other therapists from around the world, expand your knowledge base and have fun!

Thanks for listening and stay Healthy Wealthy & Smart!

As physical therapists we are now front line healthcare professionals. Because of direct access (this means you can go to a physical therapist without a doctor referral) clients may be coming to us as an entry point into the healthcare system. As a result of this we need to treat every client with a holistic view. We need to at the very least screen the cardiopulmonary system within the overall human movement system. This is where Dr. Richard Severin comes in! He is a passionate proponent of taking vital signs and screen the cardiopulmonary system for every client in every setting.

 In this episode we talk about:

  •  His background and interest in cardiopulmonary branch of physical therapy
  • The importance of getting baseline measurements for every client in every setting
  • Why it is important to take vital signs in all physical therapy settings.
  • His response to “I have to see so many patients in my outpatient clinic I don’t have time to take vital signs”
  • Risks of not taking vital signs.
  • His talk at CSM
  • And much more!

This is such an important topic for all healthcare professionals and taking vitals is something we should all be doing…..regardless of our work setting!

This episode was literally recorded while Lenny Macrina and I were having lunch a the Titleist Performance Institute's Level 1 certification course in Rhode Island.  This was Lenny's first podcast, although you would think he has done this his whole life. We had a great conversation and it was super fun!

In this episode we talk about:

* The TPI Level 1 Certification

* Lenny's approach to evaluating and treating and shoulder injury.

* What might be missing the CrossFit athlete’s shoulder complex that may lead to injury.

* What is the Red Zone and Green Zone and how does it relate to your patient's injury.

* How to get a patient (specifically a CrossFit athlete) to buy in to your treatment plan.

* How to sell as a physical therapist.

* How Lenny harnesses the positive to continue to empower and motivate his clients. 

* and much more!

A huge thanks to Lenny for this great conversation and to you for subscribing and listening tot he podcast!

Have a great weekend and stay Healthy Wealthy & Smart!

Welcome to 2016!

The Healthy Wealthy & Smart podcast is back with new album art, new intro music (thanks to Candlebox) and a fantastic line up of amazing guests!

I could not think of a better way to kick off the New Year than with a revealing interview with Ms. Gloria Steinem. Ms. Steinem is a writer, lecturer, political activist, and feminist organizer. She travels in this and other countries as an organizer and lecturer and is a frequent media spokeswoman on issues of equality. She is particularly interested in the shared origins of sex and race caste systems, gender roles and child abuse as roots of violence, non-violent conflict resolution, the cultures of indigenous peoples, and organizing across boundaries for peace and justice. She lives in New York City, and just published her first book in over twenty years. During this interview we talk about that new book, My Life on the Road. It is a wonderful book full of history and nuggets of wisdom from Gloria.

 In this interview we talk about:

  •  How the nomadic nature of her childhood shaped her life as an adult.
  • The concept of talking circles and how that concept guided her throughout her life.
  • What were her more memorable moments from her life on the road.
  • One of her biggest fears and how she continues to overcome it.
  • The biggest challenge for women today.
  • What her thoughts are on being the “face of a movement”.
  • Her advice on how to identify an issue and start a movement (it is easier than you think).
  • And so much more!

 

I can’t thank Gloria enough for her generosity of time, words and thoughts. She is truly a remarkable woman who continues to live an extraordinary life.

Enjoy the conversation and stay Healthy Wealthy & Smart!
