This week's question
What method do you use for Physical Therapy?
My answer - I was lucky enough to attend a school that did not focus on a single method. A lot of my early PT education was focused around 3 of the most well-known methods - Maitland, Mulligan and Cyriax. I learned the ideas behind each, as well as techniques for evaluation and treatment.
Early in my career post graduation, I was lucky enough to take a lot of discounted continuing education courses. Between this and my mentor/boss at the time, I was introduced to methods like PRI, DNS, Muldowney, egoscue, Barnes and many more.
Now if you are saying, I have no idea what any of that means! That is ok, the point of this statement is not about the particular methods I use, but rather about the fact that I use and combine a variety of methods depending on my past experience as well as the client in front of me.
If you are looking for a practitioner that purely practices a single method, then I am not that person, but if you are looking for someone who can take the cumulative knowledge from many years of education and experience and combine different methods to find what works best for you, I may be who you are looking for!
