Taking our own advice would eliminate most of our problems.
I may be biased, but I think that at Pure Physio we typically pass out pretty sound advice.
The following elements are part of about 99% of the advice I see from competent coaches and clinicians:
Be consistent. Success is the cumulative result of actions and choices over the long term.
Keep showing up day after day and eventually things will turn out the way you intend them to.
If you struggle for a day or two…get back up and get back on track.
Focus on the fundamentals. There is no one magic _________ that will fix everything, our services included.
Physical therapists are notorious for oversimplifying a diagnosis and then over-complicating the treatment.
“Well it’s your lateral hamstring tightness that’s causing your complaints. Let’s do these 37 ankle/knee/hip/low back exercises and see if that does the trick.”
Good coaches and clinicians do the opposite.
They realize that oftentimes it’s a very complex issue that can simply be solved with a healthy dose of the basics, commitment and time.
If you’re looking to add someone to your “team”, I recommend they follow the principles outlined above.
Without consistency and a focus on the fundamentals, it becomes increasingly more difficult to get the results we’re looking for.
