  • Outcome Measures

    I am (again) starting to work out more regularly. I'm not sure if it was the long and miserable winter, but I hadn't felt like exercising for a while. Now that the sun is out and the days seem longer, I'm making a commitment to exercising four days a week. I tend to go to extremes, either living a completely lethargic and sedentary life or ...

  • Unintended Consequences

    A while back there was some chatter among us ADVANCE bloggers on the public health issue of obesity. Since having an elevated BMI can cause a host of health problems, and Westernized nations on the whole are getting heavier and heavier, this is an area where many PTs could possibly have some input. The discussion at the time of the blogs had ...

  • Growing a Program

    It's not like you can plant some therapists in a gym and suddenly the department is busy. To adequately have a therapy program develop into the future, the way business is conducted today has to change. When looking at more cuts in reimbursements, hiring another person doesn't seem logical, but it is. A good PT aide will get patients up and ...

  • A Culture of 'Don't!'

    I was doing some research on a particular activity this week... head rolls. Not the soft round things one puts under one's neck to maintain the curve while supine, but the act of rolling the head around as an exercise or activity. I did this because I read an article in the popular press that said, ''even physiotherapists say you shouldn't do head ...

  • A Blog of Olympic Proportion

    Have you all seen what has been going on in Russia the last few weeks? No, not all that business with the Ukraine and Crimea (although honestly when was the last time one country just up and annexed part of another country? Seriously, it's been a while!). But I'm talking about the 2014 Paralympics in Sochi, Russia. After all the pomp and ...

  • What Part Will You Play in the Future of PT?

    If you've read my last blog, which ranged from Facebook to Adweek, you may wonder what all that had to do with PT? Reasonable question actually. Physical therapy has the potential to impact greatly on improved health outcomes for every country. On the whole, we tend to be a reactive profession. We treat people once something has already happened. ...

  • Do You Have the Right Stuff?

    I've written before about the obesity epidemic in this country and the potential impact PTs can have in perhaps helping turn the tide in this seemingly endless battle. But when dealing with obesity, prevention isn't everything. As PTs, we are tasked every day with treating patients who are already overweight or obese, and it falls on us to ensure ...

  • Hum-PT-y Dum-PT-y Sat on a Wall

    Editor's Note: Throughout the month of February, ADVANCE bloggers Michael Kelley and Lisa Mueller will post ''Dueling Blogs,'' in which they argue opposing sides of the same issue. Topic #4 -- ''What Is the Biggest Challenge to the PT Profession?'') When you have a fever, you go see the doctor. When you have a toothache, you go see the ...

  • The End is Near

    I can count the number of weeks I have left on two hands. I've passed the boards. I have one project left, one presentation, and one in-service. All of a sudden, everything seems so quantifiable. I even got the information for purchasing my cap, gown and hood, which is unfortunately quantifiable at $75. Not even the steep price tag can bring me ...

  • Modern Travel Is Killing Us

    I've just spent 10 hours on a plane. That is a long time and doesn't take into account the hour-long flight from Newcastle to Heathrow or the 3-hour layover in Heathrow. Of course I'm coming home to visit my mom, so it's worth it. However, I think we have the major airlines to thank for any future pain-relief work coming our way. The equipment ...
