  • How to Unpick Postural Locks [Article]

    Many people, most of the time, move without thinking about what they are doing. The right muscles fire at the right time to prepare, support and execute the desired moment. Sometimes, though, perhaps in response to pain or injury, we change the way we move, using some muscles too much as a stabilising strategy, which can become a ‘lock’ and create knock-on imbalances in the kinetic chain. This article looks at some of the locks that you are likely to see in your patients and how you can treat them. This article has been extracted from chapter 6 of the author’s book The Power and the Grace.

  • Should I Use Social Media for my Physical Therapy Business? If So, Why and How? [Article]

    Social media. Some people love it, some people hate it and the rest of us tolerate it, mostly begrudgingly. However, as a small business owner you’d be a little bit mad to ‘diss’ it. You can also waste a huge amount of time on social media, and never get any kind of return on that investment. But you can avoid that by having a solid strategy. In this article, I’ll outline the strengths of having active social network pages but more importantly review what you can achieve for your business by having a good social media presence. I will look at the key objectives for healthcare-based businesses and explain what you should be prioritising and why. Lastly, I’ll answer some frequently asked questions such as which platforms should you be using, how many times a day should you be posting and whether or not you should you be spending time on more than one platform. We also cover some social media trends for 2020. Hold onto your horses....!
