Do you want to know why mom calls me #lindajr I'll tell ya! I'm suppose to be walking next to her like a good dog but I don't. I'm suppose to listen when she says stop, but do? Nope! She paid good 💵for training but I refused to listen! Mom's so mad a me, but I don't listen and she's gonna send me away if I don't get my 💩together! Lol. #Iggydoesntlisten#listenlinda#ifailedtraining

It's time to start listening to your gut and getting to the root of the problem. The symptoms may be taking you in circles but the gut is where it's at.....
I rode a horse in Colorado. 🐴 Her name was Linda (#listenlinda) and she was kinda feisty.
If you’re a PT student, you’ve probably heard this before and it may be overkill. If you haven’t heard this yet, it can be one of, if not, the most important aspect of your care. This is something that I truly learned over the past year through my residency and I make sure to employ it everyday in practice.
If you actively listen and ask appropriate follow-up questions, your patient will tell you exactly what’s wrong with them. Not only will they tell you what’s wrong, but they’ll also tell you how to fix them!
The other great part of listening is that you may be the first practitioner that has actually listened to their story. Not only will you get to know the patient’s history, but you get to know the patient better. This is key 🔑. At that point, you’ve fostered good patient rapport, which in turn can help with patient buy-in on your treatments.
If you’ve heard all of this before and you’re doing it everyday, keep up the good work 👍! If you’re not doing it in your practice, try to start working it in everyday and watch how your practice positively changes 💯! If you want more direct mentorship, feel free to message me. If you have any questions, comments, or advice feel free to leave a line or shoot me a message.
