3DMJ Podcast #139: You Are Not Broken
Post from 11/23:
Hey it's my birthday today! While I love celebrating with my 9 week old daughter, beautiful wife from the outside in, one year old nephew, and amazing family, a 3DMJ podcast with Eric Helms and Alberto Nunez about the nature and psychology of pain and injury helps any celebration! . . I'm often asked about strategies for injury prevention and physical and mental longevity...my answer is this...education and guidance. . . The goal should be to teach our patients and clients HOW to think, not WHAT to think. . . Our approach to pain, injury, and disability needs to shift from "you're broken, let me fix you" to "you are not broken, let me guide you on the path to independence, encouragement, reassurance, critical thinking, and empowered education." This, under the umbrella of honest evidence-based practice, prevents the cycle of dependency, fear, apprehension, helplessness, and overutilization of healthcare. . . People are not machines and we are not mechanics. Putting all of your faith in needles, cups, tape, pelvic and spinal adjustments, crystals, or even Hogwarts potions is rarely the answer (ok maybe the Hogwarts potions). Our hands do not cure, except for maybe in the bible 😉. People are multifaceted dynamic beings and we need to treat them as such. Sounds cliche, but it's so very true and often overlooked. . . I hope you enjoy this one and please, if you have any questions or would like to connect, feel free to reach out!
Thank you to everyone who truly made this birthday one of the best yet 😍❤👨👩👧👶. . . #naturalbodybuilding #bodybuilding #weightlifting #powerlifting #physiotherapist #physiotherapy #physicaltherapy #physicaltherapist #clinicalathlete #3dmusclejourney #3dmj #team3dmj #3dmusclejourneypodcast
