On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Tom Goom joins me to discuss a gluteal tendinopathy case study. Tom has gained the nickname ‘Running Physio’ after years of combining his passion for physio and love for running together to specialise in management of running injury. He’s written widely on the topic with over 200 evidence-based articles for his own site, running-physio.com as well as contributing to the BJSM Blog, Runner’s World and the Telegraph. In 2016 he published a masterclass on proximal hamstring tendinopathy in the Journal of Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy. He presents his Running Repairs Course in the UK, internationally and online, covering a range of topics from training load management to bone stress injuries, strength and conditioning and more.

In this episode, we discuss:

-Crafting the subjective portion of your evaluation

-Objective measures at the impairment, activity and participation levels

-Multimodal treatment approaches to manage gluteal tendinopathy

-Intrinsic factors that affect tendon health

-And so much more!

 

Identifying what running really means to your patient will help guide your goals for therapy as Tom stresses, “I want to know about the impact the injury is having on them.”

 

Modifying activity levels is an important aspect for your exercise prescription and you have to convey to your patients that, “It’s this kind of balancing act of risk versus reward.”

 

It is important for clinicians to avoid iatrogenic language in their patient education and only, “Highlight the good things.“

 

Establish at the onset to, “Expect flair ups.” as managing patient expectations during their rehabilitation is key to long term success.

 

Treating gluteal tendinopathy is both challenging and rewarding and Tom believes, “There’s an art to it as well as a science.”

 

For more information on Tom:

Tom is a physiotherapist with over 10 years of experience and a very keen runner! He graduated with a BSc (Hons) degree in 2002 and since then has worked in clinics in the UK and overseas. His career started in Winchester where he worked in the NHS and developed a specific interest in lower limb rehab and joined the physio team at a semi-professional football club. Following the Tsunami in 2004 Tom travelled to Sri Lanka and did voluntary physiotherapy work in a hospital, teaching local staff, treating patients and fundraising for new equipment. Tom returned to the UK in 2006 and started working in Brighton as a senior physiotherapist. His interest in rehab continued to grow and he ran lower limb and spinal rehab groups as well a chronic pain programme.

Tom started RunningPhysio in March 2012 to help those training for marathons that spring, since then it’s developed into a resource used by runners all over the world. Tom has written for Running Fitness, Men’s Running UK, and the British Journal of Sports Medicine blog. His work has featured on Kinetic Revolution, Bartold Biomechanics and a host of online sports sites.

 A few words from Tom…

I’m learning about running all the time, one thing I’ve found is that there are a lot of opinions out there! No 2 people will give you the same advice and I respect that. My plan with this site is to share my view on injury prevention and management when running. I welcome different views and ideas so please feel free to comment. I don’t claim to have all the answers but I hope people will find this site helpful. I’ve got a few miles under my belt and a few good PB’s – 39:30 for 10km and a 1:28 half marathon. In April 2013 I did my first marathon and loved it! I finished in 3:12:28 – full story here.

I work at The Physio Rooms clinic in Brighton. For more information or to arrange an appointment see our Clinic Page.

If you have any questions feel free to leave a comment or chat to me on Twitter via @tomgoom. Please note that due to very high numbers of comments and questions we aren’t able to reply to everyone

Doreen chaired the New York Physical Therapy Association’s Legislative Committee from 1992 to 2003 and is a past recipient of the American Physical Therapy Association’s State Legislative Leadership Award and the New York Chapter’s Outstanding Service to Chapter award. She was also the recipient of the Doreen Frank Legislative Leadership Award, an award given to those who serve the NY Chapter of the APTA. She remains a consultant to the Legislative Committee.

 

In this episode, we discuss:

-Doreen’s extensive involvement in advocacy throughout her career

-Doreen’s experience overcoming discouragement and learning from her mistakes

-Doreen’s advice to inspire physical therapists to join the advocacy effort

Doreen remains inspired by the connections she has built with both the therapists and patients in her state and has found that, “That feeling of being consistent and getting to know all of your people, that made a difference.”

 

Bringing physical therapy concerns to legislators is well received as Doreen encourages, “We really have so much respect both on the state legislative level and on the federal level.” Doreen reminds that, “People want to hear from physical therapists, they truly consider our opinion.”

 

Doreen believes that change only happens when more and more people join the advocacy effort and she stresses, “Democracy is not a spectator sport. You have to participate, you have to be the ones to advocate change.”

 

For more information on Doreen:

In 1986, she became certified by the Neurodevelopmental Treatment Association for treatment of Adult Hemiplegia. In 1991, she earned certification in Isenhagen Work System Functional Capacity Evaluations, Work Conditioning, Functional Job Analysis and Pre-Work Screening.

 

In 2009, Doreen was certified by Atlas Ergonomics, LLC and was qualified to join the Atlas network as a full-service provider. After rigorous training and testing in the specific needs of employees in call centers, commercial transportation and public transit, as well as in general office settings, she now joins the nation’s largest provider of ergonomics services to employers.

On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Dr. Jenna Kantor, PT, DPT hosts and interviews Roger Herr on advocacy in physical therapy. Roger Herr is the Secretary of the Board of Directors of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). Roger is a graduate of Temple University and has practiced physical therapy on both the east and west coasts. His involvement in the APTA has been longstanding at local, state and national levels. He is passionate about making a difference and communicating that to his audience.

 

In this episode, we discuss:

-Why is advocating for physical therapy important?

-How each generation of leaders enhance New York’s advocacy efforts

-Loose guidelines to follow to land a leadership position

-Why different perspectives enrich professional advocacy

-And so much more!

 

A major advocacy goal is to educate the public on the benefits of physical therapy as Roger expresses, “I love advocating because we get to explain what we do to others.”

 

As the physical therapy profession continues to grow in scope, both young and old physical therapy advocates are needed for different advocacy aims as Roger believes, “Different generations have different attributes.” Younger generations will lead online media outreach programs as Roger has found that, “Our society has less of that legacy role and more like what do we need to do now.”

 

Getting involved in advocacy can follow multiple courses as Roger stresses, “Written rules or guidelines kind of give a path but there are so many untraditional paths in our profession.”

 

For more information on Roger:

On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Søren Skou joins me to discuss Good Life With osteoArthritis in Denmark (GLA:D). Søren Thorgaard Skou (STS) (PT, PhD) is an associate professor at the University of Southern Denmark and Næstved, Slagelse, Ringsted Hospitals in Denmark. Soren is one of the main architects behind the implementation of the highly successful treatment program Good Life With osteoArthritis in Denmark (GLA:D) for patients with knee and hip pain.

In this episode, we discuss:

-Education of physical therapists in delivering care in accordance with clinical guidelines

-Patient education and neuromuscular exercise for patients with OA-like symptoms primarily from the hip or knee

-The national GLA:D®-registry for data collection and evaluation of results

-The growing global support of the GLA:D program

-And so much more!

 

Translating the research evidence for osteoarthritis pain management to clinical practice can be difficult as Søren stresses, “Even though we had the evidence, the implementation was missing.” The goal of the GLA:D program was to bridge that gap by, “Giving the clinicians a toolbox to bring home instead of them having to read the evidence and then trying to translate that into something clinically useful.”

 

The elements of the program are designed to facilitate pain reduction in the short term and build new habits for the long term. Søren has found that, “The group based sessions are very supportive also for motivating the patients to continue participating.” In addition, Søren believes, “Education is key to the long term effects.”

 

For more information on Søren:

Søren Thorgaard Skou (STS) (PT, PhD) is an associate professor at the University of Southern Denmark and Næstved, Slagelse, Ringsted Hospitals* in Denmark. He has vast experience within the field of early treatment of knee pain and has been the principal investigator ­­­of three high-quality randomized controlled trials, one of which was published in The New England Journal of Medicine, the highest ranked of all general medical journals. STS is one of the main architects behind the implementation of the highly successful treatment program Good Life With osteoArthritis in Denmark (GLA:D) for patients with knee and hip pain. Furthermore, he is a recipient of the prestigious Sapere Aude Research Talent Award from the Danish Council for Independent Research and several other research awards.

On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Sharon Holand Gelfand joins me to discuss stress and nutrition. Sharon’s path to nutrition began when her son was diagnosed with Crohn’s, Ulcerative Colitis and Ileitis (Irritable Bowel Disease, which is an autoimmune condition). Her decision to tackle his condition led her to change careers and sent her to graduate school where she completed a Masters of Science in Applied Clinical Nutrition (MSACN).

In this episode, we discuss:

-How stress impacts our physiology and the first warning signs of being overstressed

-The vitamins and minerals that most people are deficient in

-Food and supplements to incorporate into your diet to combat stress

-How to heal your gut with fermented foods

-And so much more!

 

Fatigue can be one of the first indications that stress is beginning to impact your health and Sharon has found that, “We are given so many signs but we don’t pay attention to them.” Your body will tell you when something is awry and the key is to be able to recognize the signs as, “Everything’s awareness.”  

 

Healthcare practitioners must prioritize self care before being able to fully help others as Sharon reminds, “If we don’t put that oxygen mask on ourselves first, we are going to be dead.”

 

When incorporating your new health promotion plan in your life, Sharon recommends, “Don’t try to do it all at once…It’s a habit, it’s practice.” While it can be difficult to be consistent with a healthy lifestyle, Sharon challenges, “Do you want to be proactive about it or wait until something happens and then have to react?”               

 

For more information on Sharon:

Sharon’s path to nutrition began when her son was diagnosed with Crohn’s, Ulcerative Colitis and Ileitis (Irritable Bowel Disease, which is an autoimmune condition). Her decision to tackle his condition led her to change careers and sent her to graduate school where she completed a Masters of Science in Applied Clinical Nutrition (MSACN).

During this process Sharon realized that she had been ignoring her own symptoms, including IBS, migraines, eczema and hypoglycemia to name a few. She learned how to heal herself, her son and her whole family through proper functional testing, food, supplements and changes to their lifestyle.

Sharon is a certified functional nutritionist and a member of the American College of Nutrition. She believes you need to stop guessing, start testing and works with men and women who are sick and tired of feeling sick and tired, and want to get to the root of their health issues once and for all so that they have more energy, less brain fog, lose weight and feel great!

Sharon believes that if you don’t get the right nutrients, that if you keep borrowing from your own health account and depleting it, your body becomes inflamed and your brain gets foggy. You have to take care of yourself and your health first (think airplane: place oxygen on yourself first), to think clearly within your own life, before you can have the energy to bring to others, whether it is family, friends or coworkers.

On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Dr. Josh Payne joins me to discuss how he began his concierge physical therapy practice. Dr. Josh Payne is the owner of Freedom Physical Therapy, providing concierge services to his clients in Denver, CO. Josh started his practice after getting tired of the traditional physical therapy model in multiple outpatient clinics that he worked in. He is an advocate for the growth of the physical therapy profession, and for the trend towards more personalized care.

In this episode, we discuss:

-Why Josh decided he wanted to open his own private practice and how he laid the foundations for his business

-Josh’s top referral sources he used to build his patient case load

-Some mistakes made along the way while growing his practice

-What the future has in store for Freedom Physical Therapy

-And so much more!

 

Josh believes confidence in yourself as a therapist will go a long way in helping you grow your practice. Josh stresses, “The whole reason why I want to start a practice is to give my patients what they truly deserve.”

 

Entrepreneurs can invest an abundance of time in their business and setting boundaries at the beginning can be an important consideration. Josh found that, “I took away everything that wasn’t helping me go in the direction I wanted to go forward with.”

 

Job burnout is becoming more and more common in physical therapy. Find the right blend for your practice as Josh advises, “Don’t be afraid to be different in the world of PT.”

-What is the “Empowered Patient Journey”?

-How to build a community for your practice with Facebook live and Facebook groups

-Patient myths that will stifle your success

-And so much more!

 

With access to healthcare information readily available, Madeleine stresses, “It’s harder to convert patients now more than ever.”

The most important qualities patient’s look for in their providers is that they spend time listening, care and readily share information. In addition, Madeleine has found, “What people are mostly looking for from their healthcare provider today is actually to be empowered.”

 

Patients are highly motivated to participate in their healing process and Madeleine believes, “We have an opportunity to put health back in healthcare.”

 

For more information on Madeleine:

With an international mindset, diverse healthcare background and what many call an artistic approach to business, Madeleine Silva promises to make you rethink how to grow a healthcare practice, influence and income in today’s rapidly changing, patient-driven digital economy.

Madeleine supports a wide range of holistic doctors, healers and practitioners looking to reach their dream patients. With over 80% of adults searching online before ever stepping foot in a healthcare practice, Madeleine says there is no faster way to establish yourself as the go-to expert in today’s digital revolution than by creating a community of raving fans online.

Be ready to become a Healthcare Hero of the Empowered Health Revolution. It’s not business as usual.

More about Madeleine:

Madeleine was born in Vevey, Switzerland, grew up in Helsingborg, Sweden and moved to San Francisco, USA by herself when she was just nineteen. She grew her first business to 6-figures in just nine months and continued to double her business revenue the second and third year. Like many of her clients, as her business grew, Madeleine got stuck working in the center of her business, overwhelmed, maxed out and without any time to continue to develop her business vision. After years of struggling, on the brink of losing her home, Madeleine finally cracked the code to the Freedom Switch Formula and successfully created an 8-hour workweek while growing her profit margin to an impressive 65%. She had started 5 businesses from scratch on shoestring budgets and successfully sold two businesses for top dollars.

LIVE from Washington DC at the Federal Advocacy Forum through the American Physical Therapy Association, I am joined by Dr. Sharon Dunn to discuss advocacy in physical therapy. Dr. Sharon Dunn is the President of the American Physical Therapy Association. Since beginning service through the professional organization as a student, Sharon has also served as the State Government Affairs Chair; Louisiana chapter President, Vice President, and Delegate.

In this episode, we discuss:

-Physical therapy advocacy for both the patients and the profession

-Policy agenda wins for the APTA

-New public policy priorities for 2018

-How to bring advocacy to your community, state and country

-And so much more!

 

Dr. Dunn believes the focus of advocacy efforts should be about the patients as, “Stories are where the meaningful conversations occur.” Dr. Dunn has found, “To bring the patient’s story to the congressional leadership is what really makes a difference.”

 

Physical therapy advocates have made significant progress on Capitol Hill as Dr. Dunn reassures, “Hill staffers and congress people see the value of hearing from physical therapists and physical therapist assistants.”

 

Approach legislators with a win-win scenario as Dr. Dunn strategizes, “Never leave that meeting without offering to be a solution.” She reminds, “Share with the legislators what you do for your patients and not always go about the money or the payment but how can physical therapy be a solution to the healthcare crisis in this country.”

 

For more information on Dr. Dunn:

Sharon Dunn, PT, PhD, OCS received her BS in PT in 1987 from LSU Health Sciences Center in her hometown of Shreveport, LA. She has since completed a Master’s of Health in ’96 and a PhD in Cellular Biology and Anatomy in ’06. She has been a faculty member at LSU since 1990, currently as an Associate Professor and Chair of the Rehabilitation Sciences Department. Since beginning service through the professional organization as a student, Sharon has served as the State Government Affairs Chair; Louisiana chapter President, Vice President, and Delegate; and of course is the elected APTA President.

No one should tell you what’s best for you; you should be able to explore it.” Allison encourages, “You’re the only person who knows what’s right for you.”

 

The Backstage of Medicine brings a variety of healthcare bloggers together to accumulate information for those interested in exploring different careers in healthcare as, “No one person has the key to success; we have to learn from each other.”

 

For more information on Allison:

Allison is a twenty-one year old first-year Doctorate student at New York University pursuing a Doctorate in Physical Therapy and Neurological Rehabilitation aiming to blend physical therapy and soccer in impoverished areas throughout the globe.

She grew up in the woods on a lake in tiny Rhode Island and now currently roaming the East Village of Manhattan. When I'm not studying chances are I'm cutting up my knees playing soccer or spending hours creating Spotify playlists. I spent my undergrad working as a tutor/TA and soccer coach. I was able to combine the best of both worlds by joining the Soccer Without Borders team in 2012. Continuous education is what becoming a health professional is all about

On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Caralyn Baxter joins me to discuss her experience as a physical therapist in the 2018 Olympic Games. Dr. Caralyn Baxter is a physical therapist for United States Ski and Snowboard and spends roughly a third of the year traveling with the US Freeski Halfpipe team to domestic and international competitions. Most recently, Cara wrapped up a trip to PyeongChang, South Korea for the 2018 Olympic Games where her team brought home gold, silver, and bronze medals. When not traveling with the team, Cara works out of the Center of Excellence in Park City, UT with all US Ski and Snowboard disciplines, developing long term rehabilitation plans and collaborating with the high performance strength and conditioning team to optimize athletes’ health and success.

In this episode, we discuss:

-How Cara’s volunteer work brought her to the 2018 Olympic Winter Games

-What to expect with sports medicine on the road in comparison to in the clinic

-Prioritizing self care in the face of long working hours during competition season

-Cara’s top moments as a clinician in the Olympic Games

-And so much more!

 

Breaking into sports medicine takes perseverance and grit as Cara has found that, “Sports medicine is very much a world of needing to prove yourself and make those connections first before an opportunity of having a paid position is going to be placed in front of you.” Cara stresses, “You have to be persistent.”

 

While treating Olympic athletes on the road can be demanding, ultimately, you are responsible for providing the best care for the athletes as Cara reminds, “It wouldn’t be an Olympic experience without the athletes.”

 

To enhance your success in sports medicine, Cara advises, “Take advantage of any opportunity out there because you never know what door that’s going to open for you.”

On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, James Roberts joins me to discuss disability and fitness. James Roberts was born with a congenital disability called femoral dysplasia and a floating hip of the left leg as well as scoliosis of the spine. James grew on a NATO base in S.H.A.P.E (Casteau), Belgium but now reside back in Prestatyn, North Wales. James is an online training and nutrition coach by trade, but was an elite Paralympic athlete for just over a decade. James has been lucky enough over those years to have represented Great Britain at countless World Championships and 2 Paralympics Games (Beijing 2008 and London 2012) to just name a few.

In this episode, we discuss:

-James’ exciting career as a multisport Paralympics athlete

-Bridging the gap between disability and fitness

-Are people with disabilities underestimated?

-How to reach your ideal clients through social media

-And so much more!

 

Growing up, James always challenged himself to never let his disability limit his development, asking himself, “Well how can I adapt this simple and mundane task now so that I can integrate with my peers.” As a result of his perseverance, “I’ve learnt different skill sets and it’s made me the person I am today speaking to you.”

 

James tailor’s programs to each of his client’s goals and not to their disability as he is, “Looking at what’s this person’s ability and what are they actually capable of and pushing them to those extremes.” When working with client’s with disabilities, he stresses, “Treat them no differently than you would treat an able bodied client.”

 

For more information on James:

I was born with a congenital disability called femoral dysplasia and a floating hip of the left leg as well as scoliosis of the spine. I grew on a NATO base in S.H.A.P.E (Casteau), Belgium but now reside back in Prestatyn, North Wales. I'm an online training and nutrition coach by trade, but I was an elite Paralympic athlete for just over a decade. I've been lucky enough over those years to have represented Great Britain at countless World Championships and 2 Paralympics Games (Beijing 2008 and London 2012) to just name a few.

 

I started out my sporting career in swimming and was part of British Swimming's Potential Squad from 2003-05. During that time, I held the SB8 200m breaststroke and 50m breaststroke national records.

After being dropped from the GB swimming programme, I moved on to rowing in 2006. The transition happened fairly quickly as I made my first senior international competition that summer at the 2006 World Championships in Dorney Lake, Great Britain and made the final finishing 6th. 2007 World Championships Semi-Finalist, 2008 Paralympic Finalist (5th) and 2009 World Championships Finalist (5th).

 

I made another transition of sport, this time to sitting volleyball. From 2010 until 2012, I amassed 56 caps for Great Britain. My first international was a surprise selection to compete at the 2010 World Championships in Edmund, Oklahoma, USA. I was lucky enough that my time with the squad, to have competed for Great Britain at my only European Championships in my repertoire as well as a Continental and Intercontinental Cup. My career calumniated at the London 2012 Paralympics were the GB sitting volleyball squad lost in the quarter-final to eventual silver medallist Iran.

 

So why the website?

 

Having a disability myself I completely understand the adversity one can face on a day-to-day basis. Also, I wanted to bridge that gap between mainstream fitness and disability, as there is not a lot of fitness topics about for people with disability to widen their knowledge and/or to just improve their quality of living.

Michael is an assistant professor in the University of Colorado Physical Therapy Program. He is board-certified in orthopaedics and is a fellow in the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapists. He is currently an affiliate faculty member of the Regis OMPT fellowship program and in addition to his experience as a fellowship director, he has assisted with the design of several residency programs.    

In this episode, we discuss:

-What is the difference between a residency and fellowship program?

-Michael’s advice for developing a competitive application and exploring different financial options

-Do residency and fellowship programs enhance your clinical practice?

-Should residency be mandated to elevate the practice of physical therapy?

-And so much more!

 

To develop a competitive application for a residency program, Michael recommends, “Networking is probably one of the more impactful things you can do.”

 

The practice of physical therapy continues to evolve as the knowledge base grows and seasoned practitioners can remain up-to-date by pursuing a fellowship or residency. Michael believes, “No matter what time in your career you can always benefit from going back and learning more.”

 

Having been an integral part of many fellowship and residency programs, Michael has found, “Residency and fellowship education are investments in your overall career and ultimately I think that it leads to a lot of increased job satisfaction as your clinical skills grow and it’s a very powerful and transformative experience.”

On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Jennifer Stevens-Lapsley joins me on Facebook Live to discuss the pathway to a PhD. Dr. Stevens-Lapsley received her Physical Therapy degree at the University of Delaware, where she went on to complete a PhD in Biomechanics and Movement Science with a focus in Applied Physiology. She then completed post-doctoral training at the University of Florida. Her research uses a multifaceted approach to evaluate intervention strategies designed to enhance the effectiveness of rehabilitation in older adult patient populations. As such, her research ranges from understanding the mechanisms of skeletal muscle dysfunction to studies of implementation of best rehabilitation practices in post-acute care settings.

In this episode, we discuss:

-Deciding whether a residency, fellowship or PhD program is right for you

-How to identify the qualities in a PhD program that best match your career goals

-Why the perfect mentorship match is essential for growth and success

-The key elements Dr. Stevens-Lapsley looks for in a stand out PhD application

-And so much more!

 

With many lifestyle options for students, they can pursue higher education at their own pace and explore different approaches to learning as Dr. Stevens-Lapsley stresses, “There are such a myriad of ways that PhD training can unfold.” With multiple PhD programs in the country, “The options continue to grow… It is nice to have a variety of options to figure out what is going to fit your individual needs.”

 

While the learning style, academic environment and available resources are important deciding factors, Dr. Stevens-Lapsley suggests you appraise, “The track record of the mentors in the program as one of the most important considerations.” Dr. Stevens-Lapsley has found that, “Finding the right mentor for a PhD is like a mini marriage.”

 

Asking about a PhD program’s success rate with securing loan repayment plans for their students is an important consideration as Dr. Stevens-Lapsley stresses, “While people see the finances as the ultimate barrier, our math suggests that it shouldn’t be.”

 

For more information on Dr. Stevens-Lapsley:

I received my Physical Therapy degree at the University of Delaware, where I went on to complete a PhD in Biomechanics and Movement Science with a focus in Applied Physiology. I then completed post-doctoral training at the University of Florida.

Research Interests

My research uses a multifaceted approach to evaluate intervention strategies designed to enhance the effectiveness of rehabilitation in older adult patient populations. As such, my research ranges from understanding the mechanisms of skeletal muscle dysfunction to studies of implementation of best rehabilitation practices in post-acute care settings. More specifically, my research includes the evaluation of mechanisms of quadriceps dysfunction, interventions to maximize savings with bundled care with joint arthroplasty, pragmatic trials in medically complex patient populations, and health services research to understanding how rehabilitation services impact hospitalization rates and functional performance. One additional area of research emphasis is the development and refinement of more intensive and progressive strategies for the rehabilitation of older adult populations.

LIVE from the Combined Sections Meeting in New Orleans, Lousiana, Matthew Villegas organized a Q & A with Dr. Karen Litzy and Dr. Sandy Hilton about pain science. Dr. Litzy is currently the owner of Karen Litzy Physical Therapy, PLLC, a concierge physical therapy practice in New York City, where she sees clients in their home, gym or office and she is the host of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast. Dr. Sandy Hilton is a physical therapist and her clinical interest is chronic pain with a particular interest in complex pelvic pain disorders for men and women. Sandy is the co-host of Pain Science and Sensibility, a podcast on the application of research into the clinic.

In this episode, we discuss:

-How does psychology and culture impact someone’s pain experience

-Managing expectations and celebrating small wins with patients with CRPS

-Self care tips to prevent empathy burnout in physical therapy

-Interprofessional collaboration to best manage persistent pain patients

-And so much more!

 

Explaining pain needs to be part of a graded education program just like any exercise program as Sandy reminds, “Everyone learns differently and pain is a uniquely individual experience.”

 

Every small success should be celebrated and Sandy encourages patients to, “Claim those victories because when you can start doing that¸ you can start building on them.”

 

Patients with persistent pain would benefit from assurance and motivation as Karen stresses, “If you can be the person for that patient to listen to them, to offer good solid advice, help them take control over their life versus the pain controlling their life, and being able to really get them to understand that they are not fragile and they’re not broken and they’re not damaged goods, that’ll go a long way of getting them better without putting your hands on them or loading a tissue.”

 

Sandy believes the role of the physical therapist is, “Un-scaring someone and giving them a path to follow and sign marks along the way to be able to recognize that they are getting better and being there to walk it through with them.”

 

For more information on Karen:

Dr. Litzy is currently the owner of Karen Litzy Physical Therapy, PLLC, a concierge physical therapy practice in New York City, where she sees clients in their home, gym or office.

LIVE from the Combined Sections Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana, Shannon Sepulveda guest hosts and interviews Julie Wiebe on pelvic health and the female athlete. Julie Wiebe, PT has over 20 years of experience in both Sports Medicine and Pelvic Health. Her passion is to return women to fitness and sport after injury and pregnancy and equip pros to do the same. She advocates for the awareness of pelvic health issues in fitness and promotes innovative solutions for women through her blog, videos and social media. She shares her evidence-based, integrative approach internationally with both professionals and women through live and online educational programs. Find out more and connect with Julie at www.juliewiebept.com

In this episode, we discuss:

-How to support pelvic floor health for return to sport in the female athlete

-Linking orthopedic and women’s health physical therapy

-When to refer your athletes to a pelvic health physical therapist

-Educating coaches on incontinence in the adolescent female athlete

-And so much more!

 

Pelvic health is a component of an athlete’s sport performance as Julie encourages, “Start to think about the pelvic floor as more than just something we can strengthen, it’s something we can control and have it perform.”

 

The pelvic floor has an important role in the body’s proximal control and stability system. Julie stresses, “There is really no separation in the body, the pelvis and the pelvic floor are part of everything.”

 

Orthopedic physical therapists can include pelvic floor rehabilitation in their return to sport protocols as Julie reminds, “If we understand the pelvic floor and the pelvic floor complex as a muscle group, just treat it like any other muscle group and talk about it that way.”

 

For more information on Julie:

Julie Wiebe, PT has over twenty years of clinical experience in both Sports Medicine and Women’s Health. Following her passion to revolutionize the way women recover from pregnancy and return to high levels of fitness, she has pioneered an integrative approach to promote women’s health in and through fitness.

Her Diaphragm/Pelvic Floor Piston Science concepts have been successfully incorporated by rehab practitioners and fitness professionals into a variety of populations. Julie is a sought after speaker to provide continuing education courses and lectures internationally at clinics, academic institutions, professional organizations, state and national professional conferences.

Julie maintains a cash-based clinical practice in Los Angeles and shares her approach to bridge the gap between rehab and fitness with pros and women worldwide through online courses and mentoring.

A published author, she advocates for awareness of pelvic health in fitness on her blog and through social media (Twitter/FB/IG-JulieWiebePT) www.juliewiebept.com

When not trying to change the world one pelvic floor at a time, Julie is happy to focus on her first passions: being mom to the Z’s (Zoe and Zack), and wife to David.

LIVE from the Combined Sections Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana, Carrie Fuller guest hosts and interviews Dr. Peggy Lynam on the importance of APTA membership. Dr. Peggy Lynam has been practicing as a physical therapist for 36 years and currently is an Associate professor in the DPT program at Long Island University- Brooklyn, N.Y. Dr Lynam is a Board certified clinical specialist in neurologic physical therapy, and in addition to her faculty role, she maintains a part-time home health practice, providing service mainly to geriatric adults with neurologic conditions.

In this episode, we discuss:

-Peggy’s involvement in the APTA and NYPTA

-What is the APTA’s House of Delegates?

-The many ways to be an active member of the APTA

-How students can seek mentorship opportunities within state and national associations

-And so much more!

 

Becoming involved in any association position can be rewarding and enriching. From Peggy’s experience, “Each role seemed the best role for me at that point in my professional life and my personal life.”

 

Specifically, if you are interested in broader policy solutions, being involved in the Association’s House of Delegates keeps you at the forefront of the issues within the profession. Peggy found that, “The best thing about serving in the house is you are a part of contributing to what the association is going to be doing, how we are moving forward and how we are influencing the profession to move forward.”

 

The American Physical Therapy Association is foundational to the success of the profession. Peggy stresses, “We promote the profession. Without the Association, I don’t think our profession of physical therapy would exist anymore.”

Following the CSM After Dark series, the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast followed up with the panelists to hear their after thoughts from the experience. Make sure to catch up on Part 1 and Part 2 before listening to this show!

 

Dr. Rupal Patel, PT, DPT twitter

  • “Everyone had a unique perspective.”
  • “Everyone also needed to feel safe to share their story.”
  • “Look beneath the surface, the façade, or the face to learn about what makes them diverse or what makes them unique.”
  • “We need more of these kind of venues where we have different people from different diverse backgrounds sharing their unique perspectives and stories.”
  • “Find someone that they can relate to that is a physical therapist in their community… and reach out to them.”
  • “We need to move beyond just talking about diversity and really putting some traction or action behind it.”

 

Dr. Monique Caruth, PT, DPT twitter

  • “After hearing the other four women speak, it actually encouraged me to be more forthcoming about my experiences and my story because I know I am not alone.”
  • “Even though we were all women, there was difference in ethnicity and also difference in sexuality and gender as well. Diversity shouldn’t be based on just gender or color.”
  • “I hope we become a more inclusive profession and we all become better.”
  • “We are already at a disadvantage.”
  • “It’s important for people to see someone looking like them and being a role model for them as something to achieve.”

 

Dr. Uchenna Ossai, PT, DPT twitter, facebook, instagram  

  • “I’m not alone.”
  • “There’s nothing more inspiring and energizing knowing that you have a community within a community.”
  • “It’s hard to develop that sense of self worth.”
  • “There’s different repercussions.”
  • “All can be elevated by understanding our bias and bias is not bad but it’s bad if we deny that it exists.”

 

Sherry Teague, CFO, PTA twitter, Email: Teague@valuebeyondthevisit.com, Kornetti and Krafft Healthcare Solutions

  • “Getting that message spread out will be really important.”
  • “The world inclusion is probably the word we should be using.”
  • “We didn’t get here in one motion… it would be nice to see incremental steps across the board.”
  • “You only have one chance to make a first impression and oftentimes those kinds of things, the paper forms and the restrooms and the environment you walk into is the first impression you can make with the client.”

 

Dr. Lisa VanHoose, PT, PhD twitter

  • “Everyone had a unique story but there was a commonality in the fact that their identities had almost marginalized them during their PT education.”
  • “It’s important for us to ask questions and for us to be ok with being in those uncomfortable experiences.”
  • “There’s this desire for us to be better.”
  • “That means you just need a little more validation in that you are worthy not just to be at the table but also to be asked to dance.”
  • “There’s more variation in a group then there is between groups.”
  • “We all kind of struggle from imposter syndrome but racism for professionals really makes that worse.”
