On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Dr. Alli Gokeler joins me to discuss motor learning following ACL injury. Alli has a special interest in motor control. He’s currently working on the development of prevention programs designed to reduce primary and secondary ACL injury rate and optimization of return to sports and performance.

In this episode, we discuss:

-The 4 principles of motor learning

-How to facilitate neuroplasticity with principles of motor learning

-Self-controlled feedback and how it enhances learning and motivation

-Dr. Gokeler’s take on the timetable for returning to sport following ACL injury

-And so much more!

 

The way clinicians guide and cue their patients can impact their patients’ success in learning motor skills. Dr. Gokeler outlines important considerations for clinicians and suggests, “A very simple change in wording can have a significant effect on learning.”

 

Incorporating motor learning principles into your treatment is not a one-sized fit all approach and can be dependent on the learning style of the patient, the task and the environment. Dr. Gokeler reiterates, “There is no motor learning principle that is the gold standard.”

 

Despite widely accepted ACL injury rehabilitation practices, patients continue to display high incidence of re-injury and altered movement patterns. Dr. Gokeler believes, “We need to step up and come up with better rehab approaches.” To improve long term outcomes, Dr. Gokeler advises all clinicians to, “Make rehab challenging, fun but attainable.”

 

For more information on Dr. Gokeler:

Alli Gokeler was born on 18 September 1967 in Groningen, the Netherlands. He obtained his degree in Physical Therapy in 1990 from the Rijkshogeschool Groningen. From 1991-2001 he worked as a physical therapist in the United States and Germany. Upon return to the Netherlands, he obtained a degree in Sports Physical Therapy from the Utrecht University of Applied Science in 2003. In 2005 he started on his PhD project at the University Medical Center Groningen, Center for Rehabilitation. Alli has a special interest in motor control. He’s currently working on the development of prevention programs designed to reduce primary and secondary ACL injury rate and optimization of return to sports and performance.

In today's #PTSideHustle podcast series I talk about one of the most important things you need as an entrepreneur: the ability to network! Networking both inside and outside of the physical therapy world is vitally important to growing your side hustle into a full time gig (if that is your long term goal).

 

In the episode I talk about:

- How to find out if you are an introvert, extrovert or ambivert

- How to go to a meeting or conference where you know no one and walk away with new connections

- One of the most important aspects of networking that cannot be missed

- How to get to said meeting and conferences when you are on a budget

- Finally the added detail you need to do to be remembered.

 

Links I spoke about during this episode:

- Introvert, Extrovert, Ambivert Quiz

- Podcast Episode w/ Dr. Liam West

On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Dr. Jason Eure, DPT joins me to discuss intraprofessional communication. Jason is an outpatient physiotherapist based in Virginia with an interest in exploring how our innate biases are influencing our reasoning abilities and preventing constructive communication.

In this episode, we discuss:

-Human susceptibility to confirmation bias

-How online communication differs from in person communication

-Common assumptions within arguments: what is being said and what is not being said

-How argumentation will progress the physical therapy profession

-And so much more!

 

Humans are susceptible to confirmation bias and “We tend to gravitate towards people who think like we do.” Jason also stresses that individuals do not weigh evidence from every perspective and come to rational decisions but, “We have these intuitive beliefs of something we just want to believe and then after the fact we will come up with justifications for why that is true. We are really biased in the way that we come to our decisions.”

 

Before trying to reason with someone, Jason recommends first establishing rapport with the person and then framing the argument around their values. Jason begins each conversation by asking, “What information would have to be provided to have them change their mind.” Jason also cautions, “If someone is not willing to have their mind changed, there’s literally nothing you can say to have them change their mind.”

 

While it’s important to consider the biases of others before engaging in an argument, it’s even more critical to assess your own biases and be willing to accept counter evidence which challenges your beliefs. Jason stresses, “Group reasoning always is going to outperform the individuals. It is absolutely essential for us to move the profession forward collectively.”

 

For more information on Jason:
A Physical Therapist working in the outpatient setting. Aside from caring about dogs, movies, and music- I have a strong passion for my professional field. I have been compelled to write about various topics within PT to help nudge the profession forward in any small way I can. Recently, I have invested time exploring how our innate biases are influencing our reasoning abilities and preventing constructive communication.

On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Naomi Mdudu joins me on the show to discuss strategies for entrepreneurial success. Naomi Mdudu founded The Lifestyle Edit in February 2015, following a string of successful positions within the fashion industry in the UK. Her love of digital media and the lack of real-life content for women inspired her to create the UK’s first digital lifestyle glossy, which has amassed a loyal following in the UK and US in the short time since its launch. In 2016 she expanded The Lifestyle Edit business to encompass a consulting company that supports the small to medium sized female founded businesses she champions on the site.

In this episode, we discuss:

-How Naomi made the leap from managing a content platform to consulting small businesses

-How to differentiate yourself from others in your space

-Strategies for on-boarding new clients and how to manage their expectations

-Why you should focus on cooperation over competition

-And so much more!

 

Pursuing entrepreneurial ventures is more about conquering fear than taking excessive risks. Naomi has found, “The fear is more about the unknown. When you really break it down, many of us don’t have anything to lose.” She has found that challenging your mindset will help squelch most doubts saying, “I’m in a really strong and empowered position.”

 

Seeing your work directly contribute to your personal success and benefit others is one of the many rewards of being an entrepreneur. Naomi offers, “Every day I wake up knowing that my success boils down to me and how much I am willing to put in it. I can’t think of something more liberating than that.”

 

Expanding a business requires delegation of certain tasks to allow more time to focus on what actually matters. From Naomi’s experience, she states, “In order for my business to grow, I need to constantly be working in my mode of genius and delegate the rest.”

 

For more information on Naomi:

Naomi Mdudu founded The Lifestyle Edit in February 2015, following a string of successful positions within the fashion industry in the UK. Prior to launching The Lifestyle Edit, Mdudu was the fashion editor of Metro as well as City A.M.’s Style Editor and the PR to luxury Italian label Alessandra Ferreira. Her love of digital media and the lack of real-life content for women inspired her to create the UK’s first digital lifestyle glossy, which has amassed a loyal following in the UK and US in the short time since it’s launch. Hailing from South London, Mdudu graduated with a law degree, before turning to fashion and has worked with the likes of Harper’s Bazaar, Glamour and Tatler, all before reaching her mid-twenties. In 2016 she expanded The Lifestyle Edit business to encompass a consulting company that supports the small to medium sized female founded businesses she champions on the site. She’s currently living between London and New York, as she expands The Lifestyle Edit internationally.
