Thank you for listening to the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast! LIVE from St. Petersburg, Florida post the Graham Sessions, Dr. Eric Robertson joins me to discuss population health! Dr. Eric Robertson, the founder of PTThinkTank.com and PTCoop.org, is the Director of the Kaiser Permanente Physical Therapy Fellowship in Advanced Manual Therapy in Northern California, and Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Texas at El Paso. He specializes in orthopaedic manual physical therapy, radiology, evidence-based practice, and the impact of technology on healthcare.

In this episode, we discuss:

-Population health: The management of total health across different groups and the life spectrum

-Why prevention should be a primary focus in healthcare

-How population health addresses important objectives such as health literacy, resource management and access to care

-And so much more!

 

Innovators in healthcare reduce costs and improve quality care by intervening before complex conditions arise. Eric notes, “When you look at groups and systems that focus on population health by and large they are almost always focused on prevention.”

 

Physical therapists should start to think beyond their traditional role in the healthcare system and treat patients as a whole and expand their realm of care. Eric believes physical therapists should, “Conceptualize yourself as a primary care provider.”

 

Management decisions in population health are aligned to “[help] the patient enable their own pathway to health.” Eric believes prioritizing patient self-efficacy leads to better treatment outcomes and cost reduction.

 

For more information on Eric:

PT Think Tank’s founder, Eric is the Director of the Kaiser Permanente Hayward Fellowship in Advanced Manual Therapy in Northern California and Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Texas at El Paso, where he teaching musculoskeletal physical therapy management. He received his physical therapy education from Quinnipiac University and Boston University. He is board certified in orthopaedic physical therapy and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapists (AAOMPT). Dr. Robertson is a frequent national speaker on leveraging internet technology in health care and evidence-based practice. Eric is also faculty for Evidence in Motion, LLC and an editor for the EIM Musculoskeletal Learning Academy.

Eric has authored several web-based continuing education courses for professional associations and several post-professional educational programs. At Regis University, Dr. Robertson researches the link between low back and hip pain as well as the use of instructional technology with physical therapist education. Dr. Robertson has a passion for the use of technology in healthcare and is a frequent national presenter as well as the founder of PTCoop.org, a curated, open-access collection of physical therapy learning resources.

On today’s episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Andrew Vigotsky joins me to answer audience questions and translate biomechanics literature to clinical practice. Andrew is currently a Master's student in Biomedical Engineering at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, concentrating on musculoskeletal biomechanics. His thesis work aims to elucidate the relationship between the shear-wave velocity of muscle, as measured using Supersonic Shear Imaging, and muscle stiffness in vivo.

In this episode, Andrew answers:

-What is your biggest surprise on engaging clinical practitioners with research evidence?

-How much do you feel biomechanics matter when looking at injury and pain development across various exercises?

-If you were building your own program to maximize muscle hypertrophy what parameters would you use?

-What can we draw from EMG studies and what conclusions are fair to make?

-And so many more!

 

The goal of biomechanics research is to ultimately translate results to the clinic and enhance how clinicians treat their patients. Andrew states, “It’s only after you find those answers that you really understand what your results mean and how your question can affect society.”

 

Despite the large amount of research done each year in university labs, very little reaches practioners. Andrew notes, “There is a time lag from research to practice in the medical field of about 17 years.” Andrew believes clinicians can improve this transmission rate through a greater focus on science literacy and improved dissemination of new findings.

 

Best evidence based practice encompasses all elements of a biopsychosocial framework. Andrew believes, “Biomechanics still matters… It’s just in what context does it matter. From the people that are purely biomechanical, the neurophysiological and the pain science stuff matters a lot and we can’t ignore that.”

 

For more information on Andrew:

Andrew is currently a Master's student in Biomedical Engineering at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, where he is concentrating on musculoskeletal biomechanics. His thesis work aims to elucidate the relationship between the shear-wave velocity of muscle, as measured using Supersonic Shear Imaging, and muscle stiffness in vivo. He is completing this work in two different labs: the Neuromuscular Biomechanics Laboratory and the Neurobionics Lab, under Drs. Sabrina Lee and Elliott Rouse, respectively.

Before attending Northwestern, Andrew graduated with a BS in Kinesiology from Arizona State University (ASU). It was during those undergraduate studies that he started getting involved in research; Erin Feser supervised him in ASU's Motion Analysis Laboratory, where he carried out two data collections that resulted in three publications. The studies investigated the effects of load on good morning kinematics and EMG amplitudethe acute effects of anterior thigh foam rolling, and the validity of the modified Thomas test. In addition to Erin's mentorship, I also grew close to Dr. Rick Hinrichs, who taught me a lot about biomechanics both inside and outside of the classroom.

 While at ASU, Andrew was also able to secure an internship under Dr. Bret Contreras while he was completing research for his Ph.D. Bret has had a profound impact on how he thinks about movement and sports science. Together, they have published over a dozen papers related to strength, muscle hypertrophy, and physical performance, and have much more in the pipeline. Moreover, he has introduced Andrew to other great minds and researchers, such as Chris Beardsley and Dr. Brad Schoenfeld.

After graduating from ASU, Andrew completed pre-requisites for graduate school (i.e., math, physics, and engineering courses) at a local community college while splitting time between two laboratories: the Leon Root, MD Motion Analysis Laboratory, at the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS), and the Human Performance Laboratory, at CUNY Lehman. At HSS, he worked under Dr. Andrew Kraszewski to develop a 3D-mesh model of the gluteus maximus. At CUNY Lehman, he worked under Dr. Brad Schoenfeld to train participants and collect data for a training study, and also designed and carried out a cross-sectional study that investigated the determinants of squat strength, which is currently in peer-review.

On this week’s episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, JJ Virgin, a celebrity health expert and four-time New York Times bestselling author, reveals how one life-altering event taught her to tap into an indomitable mindset, trust her instincts, and defy the odds, ultimately saving her son’s life…and her own. She’ll share the lessons she learned that can help you create your own resilient mindset.

In this episode, we discuss:

-The heart-wrenching story behind her new book Miracle Mindset

-JJ’s self care tips to manage any of life’s challenges

-How to access the healing power of the body

-How to create a mindset which builds resilience and fosters hope to become fearless

-And so much more!

 

Everyone faces challenges in their lives in different ways. From JJ’s experience, “As long as you have hope, you can do it.”

 

Mindset is one of the most powerful tools you possess to overcome difficulties. JJ stresses, “The real answer, again is above all of that, has to be that decision that I can do this. I can step up. I've got this. It’s scary but I’m stepping into it and not leaning away from it. I'm not going to run away, I’m going to expand my comfort zone. I’ve got it.”

 

What may seem like unfortunate and difficult challenges in life may often be opportunities in disguise. JJ has found that, “The worst years are often the best years. They are also the years that you’re going to grow the most because we don't grow when things are easy.”

 

For more information on JJ:

Celebrity health expert and four-time New York Times bestselling author, JJ Virgin reveals how one life-altering event taught her to tap into an indomitable mindset, trust her instincts, and defy the odds, ultimately saving her son’s life…and her own. She’ll share the lessons she learned that can help you create your own resilient mindset.

In 2012, JJ Virgin was in a hospital room next to her sixteen-year-old son who was struck by a hit-and-run driver and left for dead. She was told by doctors that he wouldn’t last through the night and to let him go. With every reason to give up, JJ chose instead to invest her energy into the hope that her son would not just survive, but thrive. In Miracle Mindset, she shares the lessons that gave her the courage to overcome the worst moment of her life.

During this difficult time, she learned valuable personal lessons that helped her rebuild her life and find success and purpose in herself, her work, and teach her sons and community how to face their own obstacles and trials. Lessons like “Don’t Wish It Were Easier, Make Yourself Stronger” and “Your Limitations will Become Your Life” will lead you to your own personal power and purpose, even when the deck seems stacked against you.

With true stories from her life, her clients, and other well-known thought leaders, she can help you transform your mindset and your daily habits to endure the difficult battles that life sends your way. Insightful, personal, and completely relatable, Miracle Mindset proves that miracles are possible when you show up, remain positive, and do the work.

On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Randall Cooper joins me to discuss the elements of bringing a product successfully to the marketplace. Randall is an experienced Sports Physiotherapist, Founder and Managing Director of Premax, Adjunct Lecturer at the La Trobe University Sport and Exercise Medicine Research Centre, Fellow of the Australian College of Physiotherapists, and designer of the Cooper Knee Alignment Sleeve by Thermoskin.

In this episode, we discuss:

-How to asses if your product idea fulfills a niche area in the market

-Why you should protect your intellectual property

-How to find a distributor that’s right for your product

-Unique obstacles healthcare practitioners face when launching a new product

-And so much more!

 

Once an idea is reasonably developed, Randall encourages entrepreneurs to solicit feedback on their product. He stresses, “Most of the time, that feedback you get from other people is extremely refreshing and helps solidify whether your idea is good or not.”

 

One of the biggest challenges physical therapists face is that they can rely on their stable career paths and potentially not take advantage of more risky but fruitful opportunities. Randall believes that, “The entrepreneurs who have nothing to fall back on, they grit down and they get through those tough times and they get to that next level because they have to.”

 

Before pursuing a venture, it is important to understand your underlying inspiration. From Randall’s experience, “The primary motivation has to be that you're changing things for the better and not that you want to be a millionaire and retire to the Bahamas.”

 

For more information on Randall:

On today’s episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Dr. Joe Tatta joins me to discuss the evolution of his physical therapy career. Dr. Joe Tatta is a doctor of physical therapy, board certified nutrition specialist and functional medicine practitioner who specializes in treating persistent pain and lifestyle-related musculoskeletal, metabolic and autoimmune health issues. His mission is to create a new paradigm around treating persistent pain and reverse our global pain epidemic.

In this episode, we discuss:

-Why fresh PT’s should focus on honing their skills

-Why an onboarding process is crucial to educating, selecting and motivating a successful team

-The limits of scaling a cash pay practice and when it might be beneficial to sell

-New integrated health centers for chronic pain and how it impacts the global pain epidemic

-And so much more!

 

For new graduates, the physical therapy profession offers many different ways to grow and develop. Joe believes, “One of the great things about being a physical therapist is you have so many different aspects and avenues to really go. There are so many options.”

 

Joe recommends creating a consistent treatment methodology for chronic pain patients. Joe states, “It created continuity of care. It created almost one mind. When you came into the clinic, patients knew that there was a method going on here and they felt safe there.”

 

Joe has found performance tracking to be a useful tool for his employees to help asses their strengths and areas for improvement. Joe states, “[Metrics] can actually be a way to motivate people but they can be an indicator as to how interested someone is in their job.”

 

To reverse the global pain epidemic, more creative options are necessary and physical therapists are perfectly aligned to take on an integral role. Joe stresses, “We have to find solutions to help [chronic pain patients].”

 

For more information on Joe:

On today’s episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Dr. Dustin Jones joins me to chat about our educational session at this year’s Combined Sections Meeting in San Antonio, Texas! The discussion, OLD not WEAK: Strengthening the Older Adults, will be held on February 17, 2017 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio, Salon E. We are looking forward to the conversation and hope you will walk away with more creative solutions for the geriatric population! If you can’t make it to the talk, follow along on social media with #OldNOTWeakCSM!

 Description of the session:

In their contribution to the Choosing Wisely initiative, the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) noted, don't prescribe under-dosed strength training programs for older adults. Under-dosed strength training in older adults has been the norm for far too long. Luckily, things are changing. The same principles physical therapists use to strengthen our athletic populations can also be used with older adults. How can we apply these principles to older adults? Drawing from current strength and conditioning principles and practices, attendees will learn to apply effective methods to strengthen their older patients. Starting with appropriate screening and ending with execution, attendees will learn the tactics to build strength and improve outcomes in their older patients.

 Learning Objectives:

  1. Define the historical shifts in fitness and rehab that have led to current concepts in training methodology.
  2. Identify strength training precautions and contraindications for older adults.
  3. Describe how to appropriately dose, program, and monitor strengthening programs for older adults.
  4. Demonstrate fundamental strength training exercises for older adults.

 

CEU: 0.2

 

Dustin warns that, “We kind of form this preconceived notion of what an 80 something year old can do… Those stereotypes are being absolutely broken.”

 

Dustin has set out to convince physical therapists to re-think their view of this patient population. One of our goals of the talk is to get people to understand that, “Geriatrics can be sexy. Working with older adults can be fun and it can be exciting and it can be challenging.”

 

For more information on Dustin:

My name's Dustin Jones. ​I'm a Home Health Physical Therapist working to keep people resilient and independent at home. My background is in sports and orthopedics. I never intended to work with older adults. Yet, I've now found myself mainly working with older adults and loving it!

 

I blend a lot of what I learned working with athletic populations with helping my older patients improve their function. I am by no means an expert, but I hope to share mistakes made & lessons learned along the way to benefit other clinicians.
