If you can’t make it to Gentle Yoga today at noon at YogaWorks 14th St NW, consider trying some of my (free) online yoga classes. This one – SI Joint stabilizing — is seriously the bomb. Gentle, therapeutic, almost everyone who’s ever had low back pain will benefit. Enjoy! It’s my gift to you 🙂 (and if you have a moment, please hit the “Thumbs up” and “Subscribe” buttons.

Tuesdays are long days for me. I saw patients last night until 8:30pm, and was SO hungry after working all day. Physical therapy is hard work. I can’t NOT pay attention. My attention is required every moment that a patient is with me, I sneak in documenting in “spare” moments, i deal with technology glitches (losing 20 minutes of note-writing), I help patients face the emotional challenges of being in pain. I’m on my feet a lot, and using my hands more, I’m being called to my next patient before the previous patient is completely wrapped up.
And at the end of the day, I have to stay super-healthy, avoid sugar crashes, get my vitamins and minerals in, try not to succumb to the colds and coughs that inevitably people have around me. SNACK BARS ARE MY SAVIORS on days like these.
and i’m so grateful for this simple “food technology” of portable, nutritious yumminess. this new flavor of chia bar “Vanilla Almond” by Health Warrior (from my home town of #rva) is delish, BTW. #poweredbysuperfoods #healthwarrior

Physical therapists don’t shoulder the same level of responsibility that primary care physicians take on, but we often are able to see a patient 1 or more times a week for many weeks. We get to hear their interests, see patterns in their healing, figure out what motivates them, and yes, provide incremental care, which can vastly improve quality of life. This is a long article, but worth the read.

The Heroism of Incremental Care

We devote vast resources to intensive, one-off procedures, while starving the kind of steady, intimate care that often helps people more.
