The “art” of physiotherapy

I am going to be straight with you. I am not the smartest Physio, nor am I the best. I don't do anything that is unique. There is nothing really that is new, just repackaged and reinterpreted.

What I do practice is the "art" of physiotherapy.

When I teach you an exercise, I want you to feel the difference immediately. When I mobilize your joints, I want it in just the right direction. When I massage a muscle or move a nerve or tweak your technique or give you a cue, it is the subtle differences that make all the difference.

So when I give you something to do like an exercise or stretch or activity, remember that I want it just right... do you know if it is right? It works! It will feel better!

I call this my "30 seconds rule". You will know in 30 seconds if it will be helpful or a waste of time.

My challenge to you is to think about the exercises and cues you use and see if it makes your performance better or worse... Because if you are worse, perhaps you need to reconsider how you are doing it 🙂
