A podcast to share stories and insights from my time as a physical therapist. It is the trials and tribulations, the beautiful and inspirational, the hilarity, the tragedy, the infuriating, and everything in between working in healthcare. This is for healthcare professionals and patients alike in hopes of providing some kind of life value to anyone in or around healthcare.
Today, I’m talking to Kat Bakay about her journey as a physical therapist and becoming a cash pay business owner…and being successful at it! You can find her at https://bendnstretch.com/ and https://www.youtube.com/@bendnstretchpt. Oh, and we also fix orthopedics in one discussion! Listen for more…

Answering the question: How should someone with a planned surgery (say an ACL replacement) plan for effective rehab? What kind of provider should they look for? How do you know it’s going well (or not)? What should you do if it’s not going well? Etc.
Tanner Welsch is a PT transitioning towards a world of financial independence and supporting fellow rehab professionals who think a little outside the box. You can find him at https://rehabrebels.org/.
Answering the question: What are your top / favorite myths that patients brought to you as preconceived notions that you had to debunk?
Answering the questions: Why didn't you go out on your own to create your own PT office that could thrive by making changes in the way it works and operates? Second question, with many of us having the ability to work from home and have more flexible schedules what are some best-in-class ways for us laypeople to stay fit, avoid injury, or just be more healthy?
Answering the question: Why is it more often less strenuous to keep moving versus standing still?

The podcast is changing! I'm done with my stories, now I want to hear yours. Listen in for more details.
Answering the question many have asked, if I could do it all over again, would I still become a physical therapist. Just so you know, this one is a little heavy.
Try to hide as you might, we rehab professionals can read you like a book. Let me explain what I mean...
Sometimes it's difficult for us humans to look outside of our own personal experiences. In this episode, I hope to give context to what can happen to someone when life really screws them over. My hope is that it can help to give some perspective on one's experience versus another's.
The title says it all. I'm just going to tell a story of an event in my practice. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the journey.
...a LOT of people. But it's not for the reason you think. Listen on to see what I really mean.
This one is for providers. I cannot stress this enough: We do not know as much as we think we do. Be careful how sure you are about a diagnosis, a treatment plan, or even just judgement calls in daily life.
This is simply my take on physical therapy practice. It's not meant to be a guide to being a better physical therapist. It's only me sharing my path with others.
There's no shortage of information out there about good and bad providers. However, patients, have you ever thought about what your responsibility is in the healthcare relationship? This is not an episode to wag fingers. It's only to give you insight into how things work that will allow you to get the most out of your healthcare experiences.
Let's have a frank discussion about what is verbally stated versus what is actually happening. Providers and patients should get something out of this one...even with all the math I talk about.
The title of this episode is not a joke nor is it hyperbole. There people who live among us today who have superpowers like we see in the movies. Okay, that was hyperbole, but if you take it from "superpower and drop it to just "powers" then it's no longer hyperbole. Listen on to see what I mean.
