Today's read: 🏃🏽 What do you use for your return to running criteria? When physical therapists think about return to running, oftentimes strength, ROM, and motor control are the primary components. Yet as our profession continues to advance through both research and good anecdotal evidence, we must do our best to objectively measure our return to running progressions. @tsptofficial @brianschwabedpt . . #Newgradphysicaltherapy #ngpt #covalentcareers #physicaltherapy #physiotherapy #health #wellness #exercise #motivation #blogger #nutrition #fitness #rehab #student #dptstudent #socialpt #ptfam #futurept #professional #career #healthcare #freshpt #running

Today's read: Manual therapy is under fire 🔥. The research continues to show that we as clinicians are not great at palpation, our interventions are not targeting the specific joints that we think they are, and we are not getting any long term benefits from this type of treatment. So it is settled: no more manual therapy . . . Yeah, I’m not too sure this is a great idea. . . #Newgradphysicaltherapy #ngpt #covalentcareers #physicaltherapy #physiotherapy #health #wellness #exercise #rehab #student #dptstudent #socialpt #ptfam #futurept #professional #career #healthcare #freshpt #spine #spinalmanipulation #palpations #chiropractor #personaltrainer

Have you heard about our partnership with @covalentcareers? Effective in late 2017, CovalentCareers has been donating 10% of premium eyecare revenue to support the success of our organization SOLN. They have also sponsored and spoken at many private practice clubs this school year and have plans to visit more. We have a special tab on our website (solnoptometry.com) called “Optometry Jobs” (shown in the second photo) that lets you search for Optometry jobs and post job opportunities, which is all linked through the CovalentCareers website. We are very thankful for this partnership and appreciate all the support CovalentCareers has given us and we are excited for the future! 💼

Earlier this week I had an amazing mastermind meeting with some really smart, passionate and trend setting therapists in our field. Learning how to create an online course to better my future patients and clients! One of the many things on my plate. My eyes are probably much bigger than my stomach, but loving it so far! . Researching about the people I want to serve. Who is your ideal population /group to work with?🤔 Drop your answers below! ⬇️

⚠️VERY IMPORTANT ⚠️ I am going LIVE with @eduglobalassociates on IG tomorrow (2/1/18) at 930pm EST to talk about doing a clinical in Italy! I could talk for days about this, so let’s hear what you all want to know about the process, experience, what’s required, what you learn, etc. Drop anything and everything below for us to answer!⬇️

Mini Recap of a meet-up I had today with an old Co-worker of mine who has her own practice out of a CF box/mobile PT. Looking to open doors to my clinic this years and I was able to a lot from her even though she just started a 2-3 months ago. Oh, she’s already profiting. Could write a novel and talk forever, but it’s definitely doable and don’t have to spend years to make money back from a crap ton of overhead!

@camrynlifts asks: “what did you like about being a travel PT? Do you recommend it to a new grad?” I was a new grad when I traveled as a PT! One thing I didn’t mention that’s it’s never bad to get experience before traveling, but you don’t HAVE to. What should you do if you want to travel right out of school? Listen 👂🏽 to my response! 👆🏽

My response to the first question this week: “What do you think of Home Health? Pros? Cons?” @danny_u I will tag some other therapists and colleagues below who can hopefully shine some more line with this topic as they would be better fit for this question. @w_c_boyd @the.embodyboss @karenlitzy Thanks in advance for your input!

👋🏽 Hey NGPT nation! I am stoked to give y’all a peak into my life the next ✌🏽 weeks! I have a lot of life changes going on right now. I’ll roll out a little each day of my life as a New Grad PT. Quick intro: Graduated in April 2016, started off as a contract PT, then a travel PT, worked in OP ortho and most recently starting up two businesses: @physio_memes and @enduracross while paying the bills at a prn job working in the SNF setting. Don’t just be a creeper 👀 but hit me with any questions or comments along the way!

How coaching improves me as a clinician. 🏃🏻‍♂️🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏻‍♂️ If you have any specific questions, DM me!

Being an athlete, coach, and a physical therapist I think ultimately allows me to understand movement and training demands of any and all power athletes. I still practice and compete, not competitive although no one likes to lose. But I learn by doing and I think a lot of physical therapists do also. So to understand the movement you’re asking your patients to do, move yourself. Go run and think about your mechanics, or jump around, squat, deadlift, whatever you do or treat. Understand it. To be movement experts we must understand the biomechanics of each exercise we program to our patients so each exercise has a goal. When I program training for my athletes, there is a reason for every exercise. Nothing changes for a plan of care in PT it’s just different goals and different reasons. So I challenge you to make sure you have a goal or reason for every exercise you program in a patients plan of care.

Alright, my “day off” of really just the clinical side of things is full of networking, learning, and coaching. Started the day off with a great podcast recording with @ducklegspodcast @jaredjaguilar @gregtoddpt @physio.praxis Some great conversations, be sure to tune into the episode when it comes out! Next I went to hang out with @jonherting at The Training Room. Observing and learning from my former CI is always time well spent. Then came coaching some long and triple jumpers! We worked runways and sprint mechanics with Josh and worked on postural awareness with Hannah throughout the phases and saving the shins at the same time. Busy day for a “day off” but it’s all what I love! 💪🏽

So some outpatient clinics have fancy equipment, mentorship programs and EMR systems. And I remember as a new grad me wanting to make job decisions based on some of that. Now I’m a year and half into my first job. Is it perfect? No but it allows me to do what I want and be happy. We write all our notes on paper still and honestly it’s super easy and efficient. We have no fancy equipment but the main tools I use are: my hands 👋🏽 kettlebell or dumbbell 🏋🏼‍♂️ a resistance band 💪🏽 and a wall. My mentorship includes me branching out to meet and talk to other PTs like you reading this! And observing and visiting other clinics to talk shop too. When picking a job make sure it gives you the time to be happy. You only make your happiness and success happen. No equipment makes you special, your 🧠 makes you special.

Tomorrow I'm heading out to Maryland to spend some time learning from one of my favorite people in the PT world, @jeffmooredpt of @ice@icephysio He's teaching a course on cervical spine management which is being hosted by @rechargexfit I've taken 2 other courses from @icephysio and they've absolutely been game changers in terms of how I approach patient care. The best part about their courses, though? Easily the people that show up and are drawn to them. If you get a chance take an ICE course, I HIGHLY recommend it!

While there are a lot of awesome things about our profession, the biggest bummer is documentation 😔 As a new grad it's been a struggle figuring out how to balance time with patients and documenting efficiently. Some days I get it done while I'm with my patients and then other nights I'm up til 10pm finishing my notes. Just thought I'd give an honest perspective of the life of a new grad and maybe the less sexy side of things 😊

Had the fortunate opportunity to sit down and chat with @aaronlebauer and @gregtoddpt this evening to ask them all types of questions related to cash-based practices and developing an online business. My career trajectory shifted almost instantly the moment I decided to start following guys like Aaron and Greg. They say you become the sum of the people you surround yourself with. There are some amazing people in our profession. If you get the chance, find them, and absorb all that you can 😊

A little self-introduction to get the ball rolling on the #newgradpt takeover. My name is Will Boyd and I'm a home health PT in Pittsburgh, PA. I graduated in December of 2016 and took my first job out of school in April doing Home Health. If you have any questions about Home Health, feel free to reach out and I'll do my best to answer any and all questions. I'm hoping that during this takeover you can get a behind the scenes look at what it's like growing a business while being a new grad (Alex Engar - another PT out in Utah - and I have started a Digital Marketing Agency), hosting podcasts, and making time for movement!
