Was that PT?
Did you receive a comprehensive Home Exercise Program
(HEP) as part of your last physical therapy experience? Or,
did you leave PT feeling like your therapist barely had time to
explain your therapy and instead "Handed out Exercise
Photocopies" (HEP) of a few "cookie cutter" exercises that
looked like they had belonged to another patient with a similar
diagnosis? The second scenario, unfortunately, was most likely what
you received for your HEP.
I created this site to help individuals gain a greater
understanding of what your physical therapy experience should have
included, real patient education. I hope my physical therapy
coach will also serve as a professional resource
for physical therapists and by sharing this educational content,
perhaps enhance the future of the profession.
"My physical therapy coach site provides a brief description of a
beginning list of some of the most common musculoskeletal injuries
which physical therapists and sports medicine specialists treat
often as well as an outline of initial treatment guidelines. With full access to my
site you'll get quality physical therapy coaching advice delivered free
each month direct from my Coach's Clipboard simply

Educate yourself about your Physical Therapy
I've built this resource with the goal to strive to empower you through
education. An understanding of the root cause of injuries allows for
treatment of the entire problem, not just the symptoms.
Here's a quick example of cause vs. symptoms:
The common thread in most of the adult-sports-injuries I treat in my private
physical therapy practice relates
directly to extra body weight on the scale. As you review these top
adult-sports- injuries and link to the articles that describe the common
signs / symptoms and causes you'll see that top on most of the lists for
added risk of injury are
carrying extra body weight.
My Top Ten :
Orthopedic Injuries and how excess body weight relates:
ACL / Knee Injury
Shoulder /Neck Pain
