Posted by NAIOMT on Jul 9, 2016 9:30:23 AM

I have been going through an interesting stage of my career where I have ended up shifting all aspects of my care and treatment for patients.  I have a different approach, not necessarily by choice, but by evolution.

The Ties That Bind Us

Posted by NAIOMT on May 23, 2016 9:49:24 PM

Each week, as we lead manual therapy courses across the United States, the passion for PT is palpable. And with all that passion comes important debate. Sometimes we even see  heated discussions being hashed out online between people across the globe, of all experience-levels and abilities. (Been on Twitter, lately?!) But whether you're a physical therapist here in the United States or a physio abroad, we actually all have a great deal in common. Sure, we may have different approaches to care, and depending on where you practice, you may or may not be limited in what you can do to help your patients. But at the end of the day, we're on the same side. We're experts in movement. We are dedicated to helping those around us live pain free, high functioning lives.

PTs Can Help Get This Out in the Open

Posted by NAIOMT on May 15, 2016 11:25:25 AM

Did you know more than one third of women in the United States suffer from a pelvic floor disorder, which can include urinary incontinence, painful sex, bowel symptoms and pelvic pain? But unfortunately a great number accept their symptoms as a normal consequence of childbirth or aging. Worse yet, some care providers even them shrug off as such. And while pelvic floor disorders are all too common, they are not normal. That's why Jessica McKinney co-instructor of our new Manual Therapy and Pregnancy course, founded Share Mayflowers, a public health and awareness campaign focused primarily on the under-discussed topics of female pelvic and perinatal health.

Mentorship develops PTs into effective, ever-evolving, and ever-improving professionals with the chops to dig down and truly help their patients--no matter the presentation. That's why, for us, it's an integral part of these manual therapy courses.

One Goal, Two Different Ways to Get There

Posted by NAIOMT on Sep 3, 2015 10:48:28 PM

There is a skit by comedian Michael McIntyre where he describes the difference between people leaving the house – those with kids and those without kids. Those without kids decide to leave the house and just get up put on their coats and walk out the door. And for those with kids it is about a 20min process involving looking for shoes, jacket zippers getting stuck, pulling kids out from under the bed…you get the point.
