Things I Wish My Patients Knew - Phil White Physio

Things I Wish My Patients Knew - Phil White Physio

A podcast by Phil White My goal as a physio is to provide the best value healthcare possible. Understandably, patients usually place high value on physiotherapists doing something to them in the form of hands on treatments. Hands on treatments are useful. But, usually, what has the best long term results for injury rehab, prevention and performance is teaching patients how they can manage themselves and prepare their body for what they want to do. This daily (weekdays) podcast is here to help my patients learn how to help themselves.

Irritability:

1. How intense is the pain?

2. How quickly does it come on?

3. How quickly does it resolve?

Pain is your brain's expression of perceived threat.

Damage does not equal pain. Pain does not equal damage.

Human brains love progression.

When you get an injury it can make you feel like you are going backwards. Putting the breaks on the downward spiral is key for staying engaged in your rehab journey and developing new strengths.

Embrace the beginner mindset and learn to love the quick wins that come with being a beginner in something.

Injuries also highlight areas of your preparation and performance that may be lacki...

I believe that every initial consultation needs to start with your goals. Knowing what you want to get out of the session and what activities you'd like to get back to will guide us in the right direction from the start.

Some people will want the kitchen sink thrown at their injury, with no stone left unturned to get back to the sport or activity they love. Others may want to just know that they won't make their knee injury worse b...

The treatment hierarchy of needs is the framework I developed to help guide me and my patients through the decision of how many sessions they choose to book and what we do in those sessions.

I imagine it will be an evolving framework but this is where it currently stands.

I would love to hear your feedback on the treatment hierarchy and if there is anything you would add or subtract.

Red flag screening questions

In today's episode, I talk about the signs and symptoms that physios will ask to help guide our diagnosis and decide whether you should be seeing a doctor instead/additionally.

An affirmative answer to these "red flag" questions does not necessarily mean you have a medical condition but it raises the index of suspicion that the symptoms may not be musculoskeletal in nature.

Physiotherapy isn't a treatment, it's a profession.

Each physio, despite having the same qualification, will have different experiences and influences that will guide how a course of treatment will go.

We are evidence based practitioners, but, there is so much variability between people and their circumstances that there is rarely, if ever, a perfect study that says exactly what is the best course of action for an individual.  ...
