Welcome to Think like a P.T. (Physical Therapist)! I am a Physical Therapist, and my career passion is to teach you how to prevent pain! I hate pain, and most all of us do. So why not prevent pain before it starts?!! I have learned that prevention is easier than treatment of pain. It may take a little time and effort, but it is worth the cost. Think of it as an investment in your body! It is the only body you have, so take care of it in order to prevent pain, both now and especially down the road (when you are older…).
Maybe you have pain already, in which case you need some treatment (maybe PT). But hopefully you are reading this before you experience major pain or an injury. My goal in this blog is to help you learn how to think differently. Think like I do, as a PT. My PT hat is always on, so I look at the world from that perspective. I look at how people walk and try to figure out what is wrong with them. I look at how everyone lifts things. I look at how people exercise and see their risks for injury.
If you are passionate about your career, you probably look at the world from that perspective (a dentist looks at the teeth of everyone he meets–not just in the clinic). So tune in for my tips on pain and injury prevention. Your body will thank you.
Do you have any pain or injury topics that I can address? I would love to cater my blog to your needs and requests.
