Now, as a professional, with a blended background of neurological and sports / ortho I’m able to customize my approach for each person that comes in. Every initial assessment I try to tease out WHY they chose physiotherapy, what do they want to get back to, what are they limited in. I have heard so many times I want to JUST get back to walking, or JUST be able to sit without pain etc. Many people belittle their WHY, but I am here to tell you any WHY is important and valid. You don’t have to be a marathon runner, or a high performance athlete – if your why is that you love to walk around the public gardens and your knee is limiting you, I am there to help you build your strength and ability to walk those gardens with a smile on your face. The treatment approach I take with every patient is this: How we can optimize your body for what you need it for? We only have one body, as cliche as that may sound, and we need to take care of it. Those aches and pains we live with do not need to become the norm! We should feel as good as we can each morning, to make the most of the life we have.
So ultimately, what is my Why? My Why is to get you back to your WHY, the reason you decided to take your health in your hands, and to get back to the things you love to do. Never feel like it’s too minimal or not valid. We are here to help you get to and stay at at the best level you can. I want each patient to leave my room feeling heard, and empowered to strive for their optimal self.
