In this episode Dr. Guild tells us about spotting injuries that seem fatalistic but really are not. They can be spotted months and even years or decades in advance by observing the way the person moves at a basic level. He also calls on his expertise from when he used to be a certified strength and conditioning specialist before becoming a physical therapist to tell us about how we can improve the effectiveness of our workouts and avoid injuries simply by changing what we focus on during the exercise.

Empowering Clients To Remain Active And Independent In Their Homes Through Mobile Physical Therapy
On this episode Jeffrey Guild sits down again with the 'Joint Whisperer' Peter Langlois and it's a fun episode. They pull back the curtains and talk about the behind-the-scenes part of Mobile Physical Therapy. This includes things like the importance of working with clients to create an individualized plan for them as opposed to a one-size-fits-all kind of approach which doesn't work nearly as well. It also includes how they think about pursuing outcomes for their clients, and building a timeline of sessions that best helps them achieve those outcomes. A key insight on choosing outcomes to aim for is that it really depends on the priorities of the client. For example, they might physically be able to get back to walking around the block like they used to, but they also might not want to take the time away from the other parts of their lives that they enjoy like their families to do so. So it's about finding that balance between what CAN I get back to doing, but also what session-plan fits into my daily life in a way that works for me. It's really great to shoot for the stars, but there's nothing wrong with staying here on Earth too, if that's what the client wants. It was a very insightful conversation and we hope you enjoy it!

Diana Huynh on Using Yoga to Undo The Damage We Do to Ourselves EVERY DAY.
In this episode, our very own Diana Huynh joins us to discuss yoga and stretching as a solution to many of the problems and stresses we face in our everyday lives. The key takeaway is that though improvements to mindfulness are often associated with yoga, that is just one of the many benefits. Yoga can also be used to decrease the risk of falling, improve posture and flexibility, and improve breathing. Yoga, ultimately, is one of the best ways to reverse a lot of the damage we do to our physical and mental well-being throughout our day-to-day lives. If we're feeling stressed all the time, slouching when we sit at a table, and bending our necks to look at our phones, yoga is a fantastic way to help undo the negative effects of all of those things.

(EXCERPT) Optimove's Philosophy on Healthcare
Today's healthcare system focuses on treating people like billable units for insurance purposes. We stand strongly against that at Optimove. In fact, the guiding philosophy in our practice is that we treat people as INDIVIDUAL PEOPLE! Everybody's situation is a little bit different, so solving their problem effectively must begin with an individualized solution, not a 'one-size-fits-all' program.

(EXCERPT) The Traditional Healthcare System Is Broken
Healthcare providers are being forced to turn into bureaucrats. The education is becoming less and less about healthcare, and more about documentation to get reimbursed by insurance. Stepping outside of this traditional healthcare model is the only way that GOOD care can continue to be provided.

(EXCERPT) "What's causing my vertigo? Who should I talk to about it?"
Talking to a doctor is the first thing anyone experiencing vertigo should do. But often, doctors won't know what's causing vertigo. That's where Vestibular Specialists come in. There aren't many of them out there, but they are the BEST chance  of finding out what's causing vertigo.

(EXCERPT) Healthcare has lost the human aspect.
Healthcare used to be about people. Doctors spent as much time with their patients as they wanted. This isn't the case anymore. Now that insurance companies are involved, the healthcare system is completely systematized. 'People' became 'billable units,' and the human aspect was lost.

(EXCERPT) Balance problems? Think twice before using a cane.
People with balance issues may want to think twice about using a cane. Canes are great. There are very specific ways in which they can be useful, such as taking pressure off of an injured or weakened leg. But when it comes to balance problems, they aren't the right choice. What CAN canes be used for? Hint: It's tricky, and unexpected. They're great as SIGNALING DEVICES.
