Ep 48 : Reckless : "If You Want It To Go Away...Don't Move"
In The RACK Podcast...Powered by ProForm Physical Therapy.
In this Episode Chad and Nick get a little reckless In The RACK!!
"If You Want It To Go Away...Don't Move"
This is what a patient was told by her medical doctor. Both Dr. Chad and Dr. Nick dive back into the use of language as well as how this statement could not be farther from the truth!
Dr. Chad talks about a patient that he had recently that was treated with the classic diagnosis of spinal stenosis. Not only was this patient not having relief with her treatments, but she was not being treated as an individual.
Dr. Nick talks about a situation in which he had a phone conversation with someone that was very much misdiagnosed by his medical provider. This was a situation in which Dr. Nick saved this person from going through an unnecessary surgery. This happens all too often, especially when a patient has surgery prior to exploring conventional treatment like physical therapy.
Having a patient stop a particular movement may not be bad advice as long as there is a plan to re-introduce that movement when appropriate. To tell someone that they should never do a particular movement ever again is not only bad advice, its reckless!!
These stories are not only crazy, but they are reckless!
It's reckless as a provider to be telling patients this type of harmful information!
So...if you are a healthcare provider and are listening to this episode we just ask that you don’t be reckless with other people's health.
Now for all of you patients that are listening…you shouldn’t put up with people who are reckless with yours!
