One of my patients actually gave that to me is just kinda stuck in and now i actually use that as a motivational series for a group. A triathlete cancer survivors little motivational series. They're coming in for a little vitamin l. That's cool. I like that a lot often in previous episodes and we'll will link to some of your previous episodes In on the on the podcast and the show so people can take a listen to that but but for people who don't know who you are. How do you explain it now. What's your what's your pitch line. What your log line because we're working on like creating content right so i'm a pt. Obviously i graduated from university of wisconsin to a two thousand. Jesus thousand eight hundred nineteen eighty eight. It was so long ago. So i actually teach to pt school. So i'm i'm actually teaching pt to.

We have gap where You know we get on college and pt school. But you don't get to do oncology take care patients very well in and most pt schools. And that's probably one We don't know. Pt's don't know enough about ecology Or rehab and oncologists surgeons medical oncologists radiation oncologists. Do not know enough about rehab. So yeah the patients. All through this event of our lack of knowledge in. it's really frustrating when we have So much to offer. I mean it's just again. It's manual therapy. It's therapeutic exercise. It's nothing that a pt coming right out of school couldn't do as long as they just kind of showed their thinking a little bit and apply what we already know to a different patient population. A like it why forgot to. I forgot to crack the drink today.

"Treatment anywhere you know during curative care. So we're actually trying to cure the cancer with the treatment that the patients doing throughout the lifespan I even work with patients right up until they unfortunately pass away and it's a really really beautiful thing to be able to serve patients in that capacity truly throughout the lifespan. I do work more with adults. Don't have any experience in pediatrics. At this point. But that's kind of the skinny. On what i tell people and i think even for people inside of oncology there's idea of patients with cancer are fragile we touch we might hurt him and the reality is no they're not. They're very resilient mentally emotionally and physically and we can help them in so many different ways that i'm really really excited to get into later in the podcast. I wanna get into that. And if you guys know dr leslie walkie She's a kind of and just make an awesome videos and great content primarily points her content towards patients or caregivers of and she. I mean a as you're saying that. I'm just nodding along because if you know leslie's watching live or listening later she's going to go hell. She's screaming hell yet. Bring and that comes up a lot. Which is oh my gosh you've got. She calls it the big c got the big c. We gotta sit down and rask's everybody relax don't do anything and don't stress yourself and she goes. Nah we know science tells us sexually the opposite. We can you can be Re really working. Those patients are in fact. We have to Thing when you get asked this question when this comes up at a barbecue or something. The european boop cancer. Well how do you describe it. Yeah and you know when. I say i work in the acute setting first off. People are like what do you do in the acute setting right and and from a pt perspective oftentimes. There's this argument a medicine perspective. It's sort of like. Oh you're walking patients right. And i think from an the bone marrow transplant world which is a very unique world. Patients are admitted usually for a minimum of three weeks. And so it's not like you're going in for maybe an orthopedic surgery and if there's a bad side effect or you know you t the surgery go well. You may stay for a week or so. Maybe a little bit longer depending on what happens but here you are coming in for three weeks. That is a done deal and you can stay for much longer so for me. it's Seeing them from that that continuation of day one where they may walk in may feel good through their through their treatment and these treatments are intense. And so you know what. I usually tell. People is that just make sure that patients are able to maintain a quality life. And i think that's that's the important thing to take away in a lease hit on the head there. Resilient i mean they're not fragile and It's it's sometimes up to us as rehab specialists to persuade them that right there. They're oftentimes fearful themselves and they. They read too much almost sometimes or they may listen too much or over misinterpret some things doctors or nurses tell them and not to their fault but that you know we see. They actually do wealth. They do really well and they can do more than they ever thought. They could funding some stigma for a couple of groups that you mentioned number one. The patient's number two like kind of their own the caregivers and family and friends You know probably some doctor google's you then even even with inside the the medical community before we hit Broadcast we're talking about this before the show show you know acute care you know in college..

"That's something you touched upon. A little bit is a chapter in your course any other any other things that you can give in terms of highlights sneak peeks of the course in terms of technique. Soft Tissue Post radiation with radiation. One of the things I would like to throw out a nice high level. Is that often physicians or patients will assume or say patients radiation. They can't have physical therapy all right that is not necessarily accurate for all ships right there. So you cannot do or should not do when your patient is being radiated. This external beam radiation with our coming out of the machine is once. This skin color in the radiation field starts to change. Colour starts to get hyper, pigmented or Read no more manual therapy to that area. That is the ultimate confidence. Read like don't do it, you you you stop, but that doesn't mean that your patient can't still do range of motion exercises that they should still be learning manual. There are still be learning therapy to exercise techniques to reduce the even pending fatigue from the radiation whether it's balance exercises from rapid. Chemo. whether they have had reconstruction on the other side with the headquarters in their arm with Medina and our legs, so there's a lot of and if they don't half of the things and the only thing you're seeing them for is manual therapy to the chest. then. Yes, okay when you're done with radiation, give me a call restart, but often someone other things still going on that you still can treat if the patient needs that but the only thing, the absolute contraindications. contraindications for radiation manual therapy is once the skin starts to demonstrate hyper pigmentation. It starts to get a little red. It just is not going to be able to handle or should not handle on any hands on therapy until at least a couple of weeks after the radiation is condemned best practices. That's where you're going to get out of this course from Dr, Leslie Walkie here clinical implications and decision making that's the final chapter in this soft tissue chorus for patients. With cancer, what are some of those? The high level ideas that you cover in that Chapter I the number one thing that I will pound the patients heads from a clinical standpoint is letting patients number one know that it's not normal to not feel normal there is this underlying assumption in college. Cancer patients that I have cancer I'm supposed to be miserable, and that is not true on patient should expect to be pain-free..

Another innovation recumbent trainers for physical therapists delivering real time biofeedback with this piece of equipment letting you use it. In meaningful ways for awareness of physical performance goals identifying correcting deficits or imbalances Tikka test driver fund out more and new step dot com. That's N. U. STEP DOT COM online at new step dot com. And we're back. Let's get back to the show Dr Leslie Walkie on the show and I love how you really put this in as a framework and basic guidelines to make it easier. We want to be better but we need to make sure. The information is easily accessible to us so in terms of working with individuals with with cancer. Like just a couple of things that I've been jotting down just to make sure I've got clear. Make sure you know the type of cancer. This person You know either has or has in their history because as you mentioned very very different so some information searches can give you a lot of information on different types of cancer. Recurrence rates is something that we definitely need to pay attention to. And that's something you said. Yeah and then. Those red flags either new pain. That doesn't necessarily seem normal night pain. That doesn't necessarily get better or worse with with things unexplained fatigue. That's been going on for a couple of weeks and that unexplained weight loss. That's a big flag. That actually comes up on the N. P. T. E. and those questions a lot as well and then the hard stops would be really a a history of cancer without what will be hard stops. I definitely know Any person with cancer. A hard stop would be obviously doing any kind of mobilization direct or directly over any known tumor because we're going to increase risk of of if you if you eat it a lot of less loan oxygen. It may help the tumor grow a little bit or if you mobilized or manipulate that that phone or that area is not normal you could cause fracture or bleeding risk other hearts up on that. I we. We just talked about is in a person with a history of cancer even if it is years later they have a new onset of orthopedic injury. Orthopedic Pain I would not do a thrust or anything. Higher than a gray to mobilization without recent imaging improve that there is no disease there. And you can't start treating the patient you can do you use moist. He can use ten. You can do str- stretching and strengthening None of that is gonNA damage anything underneath and then patient. Don't get better In a couple of weeks. And you're just like God just can't get the patient better without ultrasound which often we say that right Or you know this person will actually do better if I can manipulate mobilizer spine a little bit out there. Then I would say you know what I wanNA take you to the next level when I do that. I ask patients who haven't had reason to get imaging. Let's take let's do. That and the patient can contact any of their physicians. It doesn't have to be a cancer. Talk 'cause imaging imaging and that way you can do that you can present that to the patient without scaring them on necessarily And then get the results. If you listen really carefully leslie you can actually hear like a sigh of relief from the audience as they listen to this. Because you're talking about the middle you know. They're they're they're the the middle is where all the stress and anxiety comes in because as therapists. We WanNA help but again we want to make sure we don't do any harm and you can actually here a little bit of that anxiety and I'm sure your class goes into much more detail online. If this is something you'd like to have even more clarity definitely definitely visit. Leslie website to take that. Yeah it's a good core. What are what are frequently asked questions. individuals taking your courses. What are some things? Maybe some some anxieties or other issues that come up that sometimes prevent therapists that you hear from treating you know even further when the cancer diagnosis comes into play in a patient's history you know there's still belief out there that massage spreads cancer. You know can I do tends there? I mean people just don't know because they just again they tend to just step away And I don't know that's much better. I've been a PT for thirty two years. I don't know much better now in the new graduates than it was thirty years ago. But it's just again that unknown so they just tend to to to not do it. You know can i. Can I do ultrasound And they just know ultrasounds breast cancer. So I'm not GonNa do it but again if you are. You know four feet away from the area of the Tumor. Of course you can so again. It's just that unknown and the fallback of I'm just not GonNa do anything so I don't hurt my patient. That's not always the best the best answer right. That's not skilled care. You know we have to have the right information which is exactly why. Leslie is on that tool of social media but using it regularly to make sure people have the right information as well as continuing education classes again that website Wolke Academy Dot Com with the link in the show notes to to this Leslie. Are you ready for three questions? Fire Away. Let's do it on the hot seat with three questions on the PODCASTS. At three questions brought to you by our friends at various medical staffing quite simply they find physical therapists jobs which is pretty cool. Needs to get behind. Been doing it for more than three. Decades all settings whether that be inpatient outpatient pediatrics. Geriatrics WanNa work with individuals living with cancer. You can do that. There's positions available in all fifty states in Washington DC. I like to say no obligation because sometimes people like if I look at my obligated to go. This is not the army. You know who don't sign up and then we send you somewhere so no obligation. Just take a peek. At what settings from what geographic locations you want to do you are a US medical dot com. That is a you are US medical dot Com Leslie. First question is aware question. If you go anywhere in the fifty states carp launch where you going I going to Alaska in the summer. Yeah yeah that's probably a good idea. I'll tell you I had a chance to go up there between my first and second years in. Pt School. It said before it needs to be said again. Alaska's big it really is huge and it's just it makes you feel small in such a really really cool way with how much stuff they have up there so you're going to enjoy that law a lot. I'm looking forward to it. Cool second question is a what question? Something that you've watched listen to read. That really inspired or motivated you You know what I'm listening to my podcast writer or an e book is Neil degrasse Tyson's astrophysics for people in a hurry. It in mind blowing. I mean he breaks his Allen. And I'm thinking you know everything he says talking about the universe and the edge of the universe. And how do we you know contextualized all this stuff? And he'll I'll I'll understand everything he's saying but as soon as I step away and I try to tell somebody what I turn on like regurgitate that. But he's such a brilliant guy and he but he can bring it down to a level where he can communicate communicate this he's so passionate about it And it really does. It makes you feel small and big at the same time To learn about after physics and the minute we have in this universe but unique we have. I. It's Mind I just love I. I listen to while I'm on this right now and sometimes I'm like Oh my God here too long. It's just really really fascinating. Yeah Neil he actually works a few blocks from where I live in New York City at the Really History Hayden Planetarium and I actually. I did a I did a little bit of a celebs setting a spot in once and I played a completely cool. I just kind of gave him a nod but so so much wanted to run over there. Just give them a big handshake but heroes. That fought third question. Three question is who question who someone the audience should know more about. You know Connected with is is they physical therapist. I'm at least on the east coast. ostrog Amati She's an Indian born Pt And she has started something called a fair x portal. Which is a patient driven physical therapy tool for for clinicians connect with patients? They would never otherwise get to And so she's targeting like really world populations in countries that just don't have you know instant access to PT's so India's one of her loves obviously but even in those countries most people still have phones even in the rural areas so getting exercises treatment plans and literally therapeutic exercise prescriptions to people that can't get access to PT and she actually won the National Geographic. Chasing Genius Award believe in two thousand nine hundred eighteen or nineteen Chester really a remarkable remarkable teetering. Some really cool stuff. Yeah we were lucky enough to have asha on the show. Just after she she won that National Geographic. And I think I think it's something to hammer home is. She didn't win the health category. She didn't win. The you know the science category she won the whole thing. The whole national worldwide contests. You can check out more about. Asham what she's created so far and it's only GonNa get better that's their x portal dot com. If you want to follow up there. This is something that needs to happen. I think National Geographic recognize that. That's why she won that chasing Genius Award. Yeah that's your off the hot seat. That's three questions from our medical staffing again. Your license your freedom moved out the country so check them out online at a U. R. E. U. S. Medical Dot Com last thing. Would you on the show? Leslie is your parting shots.

All right. What's something you hammer home with physical therapists you know. Let's say something that you reiterate probably in the class education class on modalities and those living in surviving cancer. What's sentiment you'd WanNa leave with the audience as we wrap up understand the middle of Bath? Possible don't under treat your patient. You know make sure you're providing them with good therapy to exercise. Manual therapy is fine in most scenarios contacts and expert. If you need help don't under treat your patient because you're afraid of doing harm. The chances are they're huge window of opportunity for both you can make their life a lot better love it just breaking things down and doing it over and over and over again on social media you can find our website.
