"Here's your host physical therapist Jimmy Mackay. Here's a thank you guys enough? Thank you thank you thank you. Thank you for showing up in person here at the Mile High City and we're at PT pump night continuing the other live interviews love to this with our friends at pt pub night which is conveniently their twitter handle at nights. But I did want to say thank you for telling a friend and pass it on the words and stopping by the booth and taking stickers and just show isn't always won't be free but you guys tell a friend or shared on social media. That's the way we love to have you guys. payback so Bring him back to be a return. Guest returner here burke. Welcome back to the show lever here person our here purse. I said when we had you on the show the first time I was like. Hey we're going to go to Denver. We got person. You're probably like. Yeah sure Weird Pizza Guy with a radio show on the Internet Okay and then this is your whole no. It was Valentine's Day offer to remember that was it. Yeah you like a year ago. No you're GONNA do this on Valentine's Yes yes he wants to be my silhouette dates with you so so let's give it. We call it a re rack in. Radio is like what starlets catcher backup? So I trip across you on in the Internet which is the best place to find weird but also cool stuff and you're the cool stuff. You're the cool stuff. Category made the cut made the cut. So what's your probably the one of the probably the best person in this entire city to give the your pets or your your elevator pitch and explaining what you do? How do you explain what the people in inevitably say? What either I mean. That's my question is what do you do? I feel so out of place in this bar. 'cause I'm the only person that's not a PD public? Yes so my little pitch is that I- research professional identity. I think that a lot of people have multiple professional identities and many of them are blending those identities together to work in the intersection. And I call that being hybrid professional so hybrids are this new type of professional. The workforce that no one's talking about there's been hidden and instead of just being expert or generalist. You can be both. There's a term for in between and that's being a hybrid so that's what I talked about all right. So why is it new though? I don't know if I specifically like why wasn't this thirty fifty years ago? Why is there a why? Now I don't know I when you google the word hybrid or hybrid worker hybrid professional. There's literally barely anything out there. So I think the term is like just Riet. People haven't hit that the trend enough of it yet and I don't know why because I think it's such a perfect way to talk about who we are so a physical therapist who also works in sports or working. Sports is that that's not really a hybrid because there are they too close to be hybrid like a radio. Dj becomes a physical therapist. And then figure out how to make it a physical therapy radio show. That is hybrid. Yeah hybridity is the combination of two different professional identities or it could be three or four. There's sort of a core amount of identity then diagrams. Elaine always diagram girl. Yes you know my brain so you. You don't just do this as a hobby. This professional study for you. We'll funny I actually Emma hybrid professional myself. I have a day job. I'm the director of this innovation. Ecosystem that solving challenges for Early Childhood in Colorado? But I was so obsessed with my own professional identity that I started researching it and I have my PhD. And I just got really nerdy and the next thing. I knew I was writing a book about it so the books come on April and I'm like the world needs to know about being a hybrid professional and I'm also hybrid professional. It's me talking about what I do. So you have like a workbook and you sent one to a filled that out and it really does ask you a bunch of questions reflective self-assessment kind of questions. I knew what I did is a radio. Dj SLASH PT Slash. Podcast guy. But when you start asking yourself those questions you start to see the different things that maybe even yourself are so that that workbook people can get from your website which is more than my title Dot Com because we are in fact more than just our title I am. You are an Jimmy. There's a book coming to the WORKBOOK is not the book great. You're going to have a bigger bucks to me about what's in the book of what's in the book box so the workbook is the. Do you find your hybrid freshly done by the way when PBS. Listen to this. We love stuff like assessment tool on stuff like that so there are lots of diagram. There's a word search list. There's all kinds of fun goodies in the workbook. But the book book talks about the concept it really gives the background of who are hybrids. And what do they look like? And what why? Where did this all start from? Maybe you could be one of. You didn't know it's possible or an option or hey baby you could. Maybe you could melt things get you love and love both those things even more not one or the other exactly and also employers and clients don't understand how to hire train retain or recruit hybrid professional. What do I do with the deals? The book talks about stuff like that to talk about the future being hybrid and talks about the current day. It really is just all the background information. That isn't in the arts so reading your book. Have you ever read building a story brand no suggests that talked about on the show before and essentially talks about how to bring the audience and the audience is no matter who who? You're trying to speak to using narrative. I was an this guy had a lot of similar as I was reading. This guy's book Donald Miller. I was just on your workbook. I was like okay. I'm seeing a lot across over here. Little then diagramming and I changed my twitter. Instagram handles using your model and his model hybrid together. Once you tell me if it's good so I I explain not necessarily myself. This is just for the podcast. I'm a podcast that saves physical therapists for missing out on amazing insight remarkable ideas and motivational stories. So that talks more about the show and then I tell people I paint vivid pictures in their head about what they want to become as a physical therapist and then seminole inevitably goes. What's that mean? I go right this way. Let me tell you some more so good. I close my still whittling down like my my pitch and how to so what would your hybrid professional identity title. Be so that you have. That was the word last semester. And my thing is I freeze that wordless. I was like all of them are. Are these fifty two hundred. You'll know you gotta whittle down what he do. That would let down again. I would say the word connector keeps coming up to me. I'll just say maybe I connect with stories or connect. I WANNA connect the physical therapy profession to each other with stories. So funny enough. I have another friend who is also like a leadership coach. And she's a visionary and a connector and she made her hybrid title Vision Nectar. I gotTa get you can do this. You're stealing one word now. I just want you to randers with that hybrid title but I loved all your narrative descriptive stuff that you put in your. I get it from my description. I need to go more of what I do that all right. You've got the creative. Pt podcast minds. I need a book about it and there was a book coming in April. Maybe I should just coach a little more than my title. Dot Com is the dip. So when you walk in this room when you're because that sometimes I think when you're neck deep and something it's hard to see yet but you're in a room of physical therapy. You know a lot about physical therapy. What are some different hybrid? Things that physical therapists could shed parishes noticing when they walked in how many people have backpacks with those little curly. Wander Thing Team Eric. Everywhere in this room I think that is a hybrid moment. Happening in the. What do you mean who drinks beer with a therapy? They'll just came from. Csm conference just walk around on a Tuesday although probably not it looks normal around here amongst the Weirdos of us. Pt's no no one thinks twice about it. And I have no problem. Just drink and seven or eight beers with an by the way the next little Can you give me a little? A little? Cain action they'll do that for. Oh I should talk to them. I miss may opportunity now. Well they're here. They're they're social. Louvre can is deep us. Someone just handed me back massages now. Agree and or creepy pickup line by the way is hey you might give you a neck rub at the at the bar with this group brought to it. Yeah so with the book coming up. What are people going to get out of it? Why read this? And when I'm done I know more about myself. I mean literally. The Earth shattering concept is awareness of the word hybrid professional. I think first and foremost people don't even know that term exists no idea and then second of all they don't know they can have permission to be one. Those are the two ideas I think are going to change the the workforce on the total permission to do that. Permission to be a hybrid. I did you know and I'll tell you this I've talked about this before and we'll have a little therapy sash not physical emotional there so I'm not sure I walked away from clinical practice. I don't see patients right now. A fulltime job though at a physical every practice. Fox Free APP where I host their podcasts. I write their blogs helped write blogs. I create their videos. I go to conferences like this. I speak I connect to want to flip fulltime job but I'm still sitting there feeling guilty like how. I'm not touching a patient and then I actually came up with that word. Can you touch a patient without ever actually touching patient news so if I say something if we say something on this show right now listening right now you take it you put it into practice and it helps ten patients tomorrow or next month have I have? We touched a patient. I think we have ads pretty profound. I'm getting pretty metaphysical Meta Meta. What's the common thing that you see when people are like a WanNa be a hybrid professional? What's what he kinda say or what's the common theme in terms of why they what they need to take that leaper your chip Beck lift. Yeah I mean I do think it's a choice. Yeah and I do think it's something you can evolve into like if you only had one job in your job history. You're not a hybrid yet. Right have a couple professionally done years so if people are like I think I might be but I'm not sure I would say you have to do some self reflection you need to get really clear on what your best out where you light up shine in your work and know what those identities are and then like. I did with you starting to do that. Professional Identity Math. Where you say. Okay if I'm a hybrid and a crossover for me. It's my artists and my researcher identities. Then what am I doing? And if you're trying to be a hybrid you have to pay attention to who you are in the interception of your identity. It's really challenging my my way of introducing talking to people about hybrids. I can't walk up to them and say hi. Are you a hybrid professional? What you do in the intersections of your identity people's minds blow on what planet are you coming from? So I talked about how they feel. Feelings are really good caters when you are like you're most alive and energize and work is flowing. You're probably in your intersection. So just to have a little more awareness of that moment and be like. Oh when I'm doing this podcast. Radio show talking about physical therapy on hybrid. Now Yeah and the thing is. I've heard something similar from my professor what I was doing. I was referred skied out of it. She said that. Pay attention at the thing. That's so obvious to you lights you up. You just assume that lights. Everybody said well. Everybody likes that. It's like no big. Don't if you really liked that you have to recognize that. Not Everybody is into the same stuff you are so. Don't just assume that thing that you like is like well that's too broad. I couldn't make a career that you you might be able to like for me when I'm in meetings. I actually start doing role plays with people because I'm doing like user. Experience Design and people have never done role.

"Jimmy Mackay lots of Management McKay That is a unique question that I usually start off. Oh conversations with myself and I feel like everybody's going how am I doing? Usually the response is well. It's a big deep breath and just kind of well. You know what? I'm safe up safe to my brother's house. So that's what I'd like to focus on. You know I saw online people say it. I'm stuck at home. Change sentiment too safe at home. You know little words like that matter but I'm safe. How about you may all right. Yeah we're doing the best we can. I mean it's Kinda Day by day feels like the at least for me. Calm the calm before the storm. What talking about in the hospital? I'm going to leading our code therapy team. And we have about morty critically ill Kobe positive patients in about twenty something that are kind of on the normal hospital four. So we're we're definitely in the thick of it feels like okay. We have this under control right now but things could definitely get pretty damn crazy so give me give me something for scale. You've got forty critically. Ill patients right now where you are which is at the University of Colorado Hospital. What what's And I know there's no such thing as normal book what's a what's what's an okay day in terms of like how many critically ill patients you guys. Can you want to be able to effectively take care of it? Once is usually around seven hundred beds or seven hundred patients And then we have seven specialty. Icu's and I think in total usually have about nine each one hundred and twenty ICU. Beds if I had to just guess without actually counting the thing that's different here is the you know these are kind of medical. Icu or medically sick critically. Ill patients and so usually you know that we have you know. Twenty four beds usually While the absolute number of critically ill patients currently in our hospitals actually normally is The number of this type of patient is a lot higher so for purposes we cleared out our entire twenty four that narrow ice new record out our entire twenty four cardiac ICU. We reopened a seventeen bed unit that used to be nineteen and then transition to an outpatient space so essentially we have opened three new quote unquote icees to manage the patient population and drained our hospital capacity. Sixty for this kind of all started. Wow and this is the reports are still coming in. And they're saying that you know as you just kind of alluded to this is the this is the calm before more of a surge potentially yeah Colorado was probably a little bit quote unquote ahead of the curve as far as implementing social distancing before things like really really bad but that being said we just we have no idea will serve what the growth rate wouldn't be patients to me and and so Naro institutions big twelve hospital health system. So you know they have like fifteen points. Sturge Investi Management Plan and book twenty two or three so well well thinking well ahead of what the potential put it since. You're deeply involved in this and I do want to make sure that the audience knows in the show notes of this episode. The wherever you downloaded. We're going to include a link that is to a public in open source. Google doc that Kyle was nice enough to put together it seems like nine pages long and I I took a look at it. I went on there and you know how. Like when you're on a Google Doc. You can see who how many other people are actually accident. It's like fifty sixty. I've seen eighty people on this thing at one. So good on you for just saying okay. People are looking for information. We know that the Internet's great but sometimes it has a lot of misinformation and since this is your wheelhouse board-certified cardiopulmonary physical therapists worker the ICU you decided to go out. And just call the best information that was most applicable and put it together. It's nine pages and again we'll share it with you. Just talk about what's on their well. People can find and kind of why you did. It started honestly that I've been one yet. But man a lot of people have to say right up front has been big contributors to help him develop it. Give me resources You know in those people. Quick shot up for sure Brian Hall from Baylor University Medical Center and Baylor Scott and White Rehab Institute Taoist Kennedy Veneer. Who Works at New York University? Affiliate hospital calm. You know Mike. Mike Cova Team University of Colorado Hospital are rehabilitation director. Matt Gallagher Folks. Ucsf including high angle and Maureen Coco was their director John. director at and when you land on like in the thick of it all really contributed but the impetus was. I was just starting to collect information as we were identified at our hospital. That there's GonNa be a thing and knowing like man we need to know about this. 'cause I'm anticipating we're going to see these patients and they're going to need to have the information on the Itself and information on what we could potentially do arena think about this clinically and operationally. So I just started throwing some stuff together and then really has started to build Brian Hall like in Winter. Like forty hours put together like seven people to do a Webinar Those Co hosted by the Health Policy Administration Section Kademi cute care pt the cardiovascular pulmonary section until. He wanted to make some resources so we just started doing here and I was like well. Why don't I just make Google Dot? Because information is going to be changing. Yeah our tower and so I figured let's make a public Google doc curate it we can update it in real time. We don't have to be emailing people backing more. Things that are outdated it changes in time That's where it came from and I've gotten a lot of good feedback and insights from folks. I mean really actually all over the world of getting emails from people in Spain South America. So it's been super interesting. Of course content goes really wanted to do is man what some updated information that people can be considering about potentially endemic itself What's information kind of on the potential pathophysiology? But really we think about acute care. Physical therapy is are. We going to guide our resource allocation Both for patients who have colder as well as patients who don't kind of thinking from pandemic level all the way down to the best. I mean by that is if you think about the pandemic generally you know we want to decrease spread. We want to contain it. We want to women exposure to it and so we always have to keep those principles foundational but then if things surgically we get a surge at that curve really Stevens you know. There's going to be bottlenecks. Chokepoints logistically in the healthcare system. In emergency department IC- Bene- waiters hospital beds themselves and really kind of thinking. How can we move the needle on? How can we bring some value? And so we kind of curated. A bunch of section on getting therapist both from director level down to the bedside thinking about okay. Where do we need to focus our resources to patient off ventilators out of the hospital generally but then also okay take goes pandemic consideration into account? We WanNA WE WANNA contain it. We WanNA women exposure. We WanNA limit spread. We want to conserve personal protective equipment. How can we go about evaluating or contributing to patient care with women in our presence at the bedside? Which is a weird thing for therapists are issued? Caused are really struggling with with having to go to the house. And then we made kind of evaluation escalation scheme to pink people through okay. How do I the consultant? On a case make recommendations make decisions make assessment without actually going to the bedside and and I think that's a real mind twist for folks that definitely was for me used to. I'm used to doing some of this a little bit. But ain't no. I have any question. I'm not sure on the console. I go to the bedside. See The patient right whereas now it's like okay review the chart and ask myself. Do I have enough information to make recommendations and potentially turn off this case discussed with the team with the clinical question concern? What are you seeing? What can I add here? You know that I'm going to have a discussion with the nursing. What's this person's physical function mobility status? What problems are you having? What what what symptoms are they having? We've even begun to now calling into to talk with the patient 'cause we have windows from the outside and most of our patient rooms. I can call in and ask the patient run my team. Can you feel you've been getting up? Are You compared to normal? How comfortable.

The best conversations happen at happy hour. Welcome to our is forum award. This is the P. podcasts. Here's your host physical therapist. Jimmy Mackay got the information that you that you filled out on that form. I think it's great. I kind of wanted to structure it two ways. I I WANNA make sure the audience is on the same page. I think number one people nova term concierge PT. But probably don't know what means are actually means from someone who's doing so aren't start there and just kind of look into define it wh- you know what's a day look like. What does it give you in terms of like? I'm guessing freedom flexibility Those sorts of things we can talk about. The state of the industry. Cash practices sure couldn't agree more but this is not my area but I hate when people are saying. Oh my gosh this is so easy anybody can do it Whatever I hear that I go. Yeah because I mean everybody in their mom has a podcast like right this way you can show you how rally easy. I'm not saying it's impossible but I'm guessing there's a lot more that goes into it when when people are trying to sell you something. Yeah so in terms of concierge. And you know how does that? What does that mean exactly in the day to day life of a quote? Unquote CONCIERGE physical therapist. You know the terms. Certainly I think you know it folks some a certain level of quality associated with using that term a name of your your company or branding term or a marketing term and to that point You know the the one on one nature of the service is really what I tried to use that term for in our marketing strategy and our business is bad. This is this is here. We're here for our clients one on one. We're here for them whether it's a bunion. Whether it's a headache whether it's a knee replacement I every therapist that works with me. I want their clients to think of them as their PT. That's the person they all the person they think of. Anything happens to them physically. Whether they're traveling they stumble at home. Oh I have to call Brian because this hurt. It's GonNa hurt more. I gotta get that. That's what we're looking for in the therapists that worked for us and that's the culture that we're creating And have created with with concierge physical therapist now. I think a lot of medical other medical providers have used that term in sort of like a you know a subscription type service where you pay me a hundred dollars a month or whatever much a year and that entitles you to so many. Because we've we've shied away from that just because you know logistically. I think it's a lot harder to manage keeping track of business and payments and whatnot In my opinion I'm sure it works for other healthcare providers and their models but I shied away from that on purpose and just wanted to use that that term concierge as you know really high level service that comes to you and it's really all about the client. It's not about insurance companies. It's not about the physician that may have written them Email and treat pursued. And it's really about whatever they want a deal with them. You know we have some clients that they WanNa talk for fifteen or twenty minutes of up there Our appointment and we are more than happy to talk with them about their anatomy up mechanisms of injury. Whatever it is and we often get a hot point from a client where they say you know. I've been dealing with his knee problem for ten years and no one ever explained it to me and you just did it and you know. It's sort of that. That works like yes. That's exactly what I'm talking about. And in in terms of the day to day life of therapist working for us look like It varies quite a bit. You know we're in multiple markets now. We started this in Washington DC ten years ago. I started it just because I was disenchanted in my eye regular outpatient. Ortho clinic and decided. I needed the breakaway and figure out how to give everything I could to a client with every appointment and and not feel burnt out. You know frankly I was. I was feeling that burn out and I was only three years out of school in the prospect of the prospect of you know another twenty years in in that profession in that setting was really. You know. Daunting wants to me so Took a leap of faith and started this business just myself. It was strictly a cash practice. I had a a number of amazing initial clients that were referring to everybody that they could and that it took off nicely from there and I would say within a year I had a new problem. I was getting you know. Burnt out in a different way. From this this business I had created and I had to figure out how to scale it from there and how to bring other people into the practice. And and that's you know we're still in that position. We have probably about twelve or thirteen therapist working for us in various parts of the country. Now and I'm still trying to scale. I'm still trying to get their like minded therapists who can really understand what we're going for onboard and to help build it even more love it. Website is concierge physical therapist dot com instagram at concierge physical therapists. I don't know if you remember this but you actually came and gave a demo when I was in school in my class. Do you remember this. I vaguely remember you I definitely remember the doing the demo. I think it was a dry needling demo. You know fellow Marymount Grad Great Program you know the the school and the programs changed quite a bit since I graduated. You guys have the fancy new. New Building there In Arlington and we were in the old ugly building by. Hey how ya I one year I did. I did my time. I did one year in the boy. S Yeah one year and then I went to the ice one. Yeah well it. It definitely got the better into that deal. Yeah I remember Dry needling yeah. You Know I. I started dry needling.

These technological advances is if it's a win and Dewayne is kind of already now and already happening so we bring on a numb Choksi to the show a non. Welcome to the program. The addition excited to be here. Yeah good to have you on. Here's the tweet chief. Clinical Officer for a digital healthcare company focusing on care management and values care using technology and telehealth. I feel like telehealth. I mean for someone like me. Who's kind of paying? Attention popped up a year. Two years ago we'd be two and a half but now you don't go more than fifteen minutes online without kind of bumping into that term telehealth. That's it's gotta be pretty exciting to be in the middle of that very much so you know. I think it's a term that's been it's it's a very broad term as well and I think it's been around for a long time in terms of medicine in general but I believe that you know in the last few years. It's really becoming stepping forward. A lot of people's minds with suspected physical therapy. I know we've had a lot of great people doing from number of years. You know with Dr Trevor Ruffled Down in Australia and Doctor Allen Lee out here in in California you know for that for many years but now I feel like there's I think there's people are seeing the interest. Is that in Pencil up. And so now it's becoming more and more every I think everybody's kind of like the bell curve a little Bit Right. You've got the people who are on the bleeding edge those The on the far right of that bell curve. They're going to jump in and everybody in the middle is kind of like paying attention. Like I'll get to this when I know exactly what this thing is. So you work for you work for reflection health right now. But you've got a pretty non traditional background come into the Profession. Talk about that really quickly. Yeah I grew up in in eastern Canada and Nova Scotia on an island called K. Bright NYLAND's so I grew up there for many years and then went to school at McGill University out in Montreal and after McGill. I actually didn't get into physical therapy right away or got to get into the sciences. I actually went into business and get some inside sales for a little while for a number of years and enjoyed it you know but something was just missing from it and you know where I I just missed. The I felt like I enjoyed activity athletic. Sports I enjoyed teaching. I would teach tennis every summer. You know job in college and somebody was missing and Then I discovered physical therapy and I started volunteering. Saw what it was and I said you know what I'm typer career change. I'M GONNA change jobs and I went back to school when I'm in my late. Twenties and what University of Michigan Flint? Everything took off from there. I like that that non traditional background of course because I've got a little bit of a non traditional background boat. We've had Sarah Beth Burke on the show before and she's a professional looking into hybrid professionals in the idea of hybridity. Not just being able to do things but to be able to blend those two things together. So what is your role? Let's get a little more specific specific now talk about what reflection health does and then what you get to kind of bring with your non traditional background your your focus your sales focus your life experience. What do you get to do their great question you I started with a reflection held back in two thousand twelve when I kinda spun up as an idea and I joined them as their kind of their. Cme The content. I kind of medical expert and so just peeling them as vice when they were kind of coming up with the concept of pay. You know what this technology is. Three D. technology cameras are coming out for the xbox connect at the riots there. Hey this is pretty cool. This is pretty cool. In our co-founders were one was a business guy. Another one was a internal medicine physician and they came up with the idea the canyon the physician said I would refer people to physical therapy have no idea what they're doing right What the doing how they're doing. How can I use this three D. technology to better understand what the pieces of doing a home and to give me a better idea of what they're doing would I don't see them in the clinic and talking to them? 'cause I had a little tech in the clinic where I was managing up in Westlake Village California and where we had some technology and they can't and retarded sharing how I would use that technology in practice Just in the clinic though kind of started advising them during the company and I'm using my role as a physical therapist. Almost help guide the road map as to what you know. In terms of what patients would require what clinicians would need in order to provide to get the right information to them so they can actually care for patients outside of the clinic. Because you know there's a lot of companies are coming up a lot of smart technologists out there who think they know? What does it go therapy and are well versed in the technology world? But when they don't have you know I think at the professional we're always worried about people replacing us and I think by lending my my expertise in physical therapy it's understanding what PT's are requiring or wants and needs during the treatment of patients helps up. Yeah you're able to just lend some insight to mean you you you get to speak for us in in the room which I think is really really important. Because like you said he was referring to people or furring to physical therapy but didn't know they were doing there and you were you were able to translator gives some insight into what was actually happening that leads to understanding. That's how we get bigger tables. That's exactly I think I will work but I think that's the thing unfortunately pt at times not well in students becoming better and better we are driving that clinical practice and clinical evidence. And this is you know an approach that we took as a company to As a company as chief medical officer I also help to manage with my team to drive studies and rent and large prospective randomized controlled approve the fines. Not just say that telehealth telemedicine can help end in a user case or usability issues within a true randomized prospective trial and. That's what we WANNA leave with right when we can talk about that universal language which is data more people outside of physical therapy. Who Don't necessarily understand what we can see what we're able to do or capable of doing it and that way they're drawn to us so we don't have to go shouting from the rooftops as much people will start to come to us exactly at and again you know. Technology is there is coming. We all know we all use it in see every day and technology is part of our lives and to be afraid of technology within our profession. I think is something we should kinda shy away from. I think we should adopted more understand how to use it better. Help us do our job. Even maybe a little bit different in a way but maybe a better way you know not be afraid of it okay. So let's talk talk about how we're able or going to be able to use telehealth and why we should embrace telehealth and technology into practice. I'm going to say in the future but I kind of flipped the futures right now. So let's talk about that. Yeah I I you know when it comes to telehealth. I think you know telehealth a way to replace. Pt's a PTA is still the one who's driving the decision making. I think what the the point is to give that commission more data more data to understand what that patient is doing when they're not in front of them and use that to drive better clinical decision. It's really important. You know when if you think about it I I'd imagine a lot of the stuff. They already. How important it is for them to do their program at home whether or not with us because if they do see in the clinic which is maybe two or three times a week. No really add up that time ninety ninety nine ninety nine percent of the time. They're on their own so what they're doing at home is crucial to understand. What they're doing at home is very important for us to help. Guide them through that recovery search and not only re guiding them through the recovery but also maybe potentially improving access to the care right. The large sixty million people live in rural rural America. Who Don't have access to care and to the able to use technology to give him any advice in triage with them whether or not they need to seek. You know for example. If it's a simple ankle sprain just to give them the simple things of what to do and how to recover at home over. A couple of weeks is great because it doesn't work well still have that ability to communicate with them and say you know what I think is now. It's time to get into a clinic or and now it's part of that. You need to see someone for this because when you're trying to do at home is not working is not enough. Yeah I'm imagining your your background growing up in in Nova Scotia on an island that that probably resonates in terms of being able to access care when you're just cut off literally physically cut off from being able to get somewhere very true and also deeper east coast. It's cut off with access to care because I come from a small town. My father was a physician. It's currently it's Back home and but he services the whole island and so people will be driving two and a half three hours away to see him as an ear nose and throat doctor and my father talk a little bit about him. Means he's eighty four and he's still practicing and one of the reasons he still practicing is be retired or some of those services wouldn't be available for people on the island and so it's it's an obligation where many of the physicians they are so feel obligated because they can't treat face the pieces may not have those services and coming from the East Coast. We all know about whether this time of year in the right and when the weather play that has a role y'all you can't always get to that provider and so finding ways to still have the ability to get that quick visit to triage to understand what that patient is doing is at the clinician. You're still using your your your biggest asset. Which is your mind. Yes Sharon Dunn said it a couple years ago. I don't know some address. She gives a lot of addresses. That are always point but it resonated with me which is let's start with circuiting paid for what's between our ears not not just with what we can do with our hands because we can do so much more agree agree and I think this is where technology comes into play and then part of it and also for us as a profession to make sure that people know what we do better. It's even join companies create companies that are using technology to better profession into better the lives of the people who we want to treat and help love. That didn't plan on talking about this. Didn't know that about your dad which I think is a really cool story. What are his thoughts on telehealth and kind of what you get to do in in the future? I'm sure you talk about it with them. No we definitely talked about it and you know it's it's something that he understands because back in the day When I was a young kid back home in the research we have the doctor visits right. The doctor would come to the home house..

James Ferry collected background travel physical therapist for a long time. Now he's doing something completely different in terms of what working for a facility and a little bit of concierge. PT Plus lives in Colorado. So I want to a little bit of local insight into the things that you should do outside of the conference center. Yeah I'm talking about what should you do while you're in Denver. You'RE GOING TO BE IN DENVER. Do Cool Denver things so we get inside James's brain there and talk a little bit about the Academy of Orthopedic Physical Therapist which he is a member in good standing of that Academy episode is brought to you by Owens recovery signs.

Jimmy Mackay leadoff like we usually do by saying thank you thank you. Thank you The reviews on itunes those are great selfishly because of an ego maniac but also because it lets us know the number one that someone's listening a number two what you WanNa hear when people give us their insight. It kind of helps us into programming. What else do we get on the show? Who else should we get on the show? So thank you Sharon. Sharon stuff online is the the biggest thing you can give really telling a friend telling a colleague and subscribing to the podcast on whatever platforms you. Listen to audio. Would that be I tunes the Almighty tunes or spotify Google play or a million other pod catchers out there so thank you thank you thank you. We've been doing a lot of pre stuff stuff and we're gonNA continue that tradition but completely spin it on its head as we bring back James Spencer to the show. Welcome back man to be back here. We've looked at a a lot of programming done previews we do that before we go to a conference I find some stuff I think is interesting. We bring the person WHO's presenting or an author on talk about it. It gives people some some insight into some programming. They may want to see or some things they might want to look up. But you and I want to do something a little bit different because your local to Denver Ver- where CSM is going to be this year. So you got like inside knowledge. And that's what we want to pick your brain four. I Yeah I hope so I hang Out in Denver a bit. I live A little ways outside in Aspen Colorado. So you know that's really what I want to push everybody to either before or after go get on. The ski slopes in a day or two out in the mountain yeah. I'm trying very hard to not say where the beer flows like wine but there it goes. I just said it like geography wise because I been there before to Denver Not Aspen. What's the distance between the two you know at the girls lives? We're not too far but I spent four hour drive okay. Up Over Mountain Mountain passes and around the hills and then back down our little valley here all right so Wilbert shorter in the summer. I said you were local. I'm in New York your your local to Denver. But you've spent some time there and so what I wanted to do is pick the brain of someone who knows it way better than me because again. I don't know the difference distance between Denver and Aspen. Aspen they could have been next to each other. You could tell me that I wouldn't difference so when people because Colorado Aspen Denver like it's a destination I mean it's a place people oh put on their calendar to go to. I wanted to give people some insight into some things. They must do outside of the conference. Yes coining corning l'excellent this fantastic go learn go network do the whole nine but also make sure to do something cool because as my dad told me. Hey man one day we're all GONNA be dirt dirt which sounds really morbid but what it means is do some cool stuff while you have the opportunity especially when you're in a cool city like Denver so if someone's coming into to Denver you you know what what's on your list to tell him. Do you know I think it's Kinda racking. My brain of all the different things have gone into Denver for the year and One Is Red Rock. It's not real close to the conference center but it's you know. Maybe a thirty minute Uber Ride and last night looking at PRICES ON UBER or lift. It was thirty bucks to get over there and they have these great outdoor concert fully natural amphitheatre just a really unique place and and there's not a whole lot going on for concerts during. CSM There is some local music there but they have hiking trails and the the Colorado Music Hall of fame and a bunch of other stuff that you could easily fill a day where it's it's not just an evening. Yeah Red rocks killer suggestion number one all out myself. I'm Dave Matthews Band Fan and they recorded a pretty great Album out there live album had a chance is to To kind of you know. Hike the steps hike around there a little bit. It is worth the trip. If if you're looking to get out and do some moving maybe WANNA get up early one day or you're GonNa stay a day later come a day early yet. Red Rocks being not terribly close but also not terribly far and you mentioned the museum as a guy who used to work in rock radio. Oh man they got some really cool like guitars and just photos of the legendary performers Supernova. So if your music fan red rocks pretty cool to check out. I'd say it's definitely worth the ride there and back Walker on over there. There really is We had Matt Tuttle from the Denver Nuggets on not long ago and I actually creeped on his Twitter instagram and saw that they actually do some Denver Nuggets preseason training they make the I think it was just the rookie. Though they're making the rookies run the steps at red rocks which which is Kinda cool that even the even the the Denver Nuggets are using red rocks as a way to get some exercise. That's so cool. I thought that through some great shots. Heck yeah moving on what else so at red rocks definitely pretty good thing to start with. What else do you suggest people check out? I think A areas of the city to just hang out larimer square square is known for its restaurants nightlife and and everything going on there but then and then drilling where I've hung out. It's on Blake Street. Kinda leads away from their up towards course feel hill. And there's some cool.

WHO pioneered go? Baby go and one of my faves Meghan Brown. Who owns mind the Matt in Alexandria? Virginia these these three come at the profession from three very different directions but all with a ton of passion we recorded this episode. Live at well where else a bar just down the street st from CSM in two thousand nineteen and it bakes the top twelve this year. Empty pint cat start small sir. Small ticket risk so if he falls flat on your face. What are you gonNA lose you? Get up dust yourself off right and you start over. It's not that bad. We've all gone through way worse than our lives so small be prepared to fail because the best things I've ever learned in my life from my failures par maturity the best lessons. I've learned in my life for failure and they hurt. They hurt really badly and caused me a lot of pain but then I can sit back. Can Relax in an apply and reflective what I've learned and just apply to make my life better so this was something weird then different that we did WHO's actually not my idea was skied out of in from from airmont university. Who came up with the idea for Hashtag unfiltered event that we did just before? CSM IN WASHINGTON DC. She said what if and I love conversations she says start off with my favorite phrases. What if we get a few speakers together and just invite a hundred people in to be in the audience so it's limited right? It's it's big but it's small and the speakers that we've let talk all have something to say but a lot of times when you go to professional conferences insist. There's this filter that needs to be on your Europe presenter not having a conversation there's no rant usually there's not many rants not constructive ones anyway professional conferences so this was not an official. CSM event this was a hundred people having drinks in a bar before CSM and we invited ended up three different speakers. And I've had conversations with all of them candidly and professionally on my show and you know personally and I know they all have something to say in terms of having something. They're deeply passionate about that. They like people to here but a lot of times when you put a microphone. Someone's hand on a podcast where you put them onstage at. CSM They become a presenter right. They're supposed to present so a lot of times. People play a little more safe. They play a little more down the middle. And that's not what this was about. UNFILTERED was about having having that filter taken off so we had three speakers and it went Dr Kohl Galloway. WHO's launched go baby go movement and he talks really unfiltered? What about how it could fail? How us not championing ideas like this could cause everything to fail love when Kohl on ramp? We'll have some more from Kohl's well coming up. Meghan Jim Brown and Brown. She's somebody who is for NAMARA Mount University. She is a physical therapist. I said that first and then an entrepreneur four and a leader and a rally earlier and someone who just gets fired up and I like people get fired up about stuff. She talks about owning exercise. How her her dual roles is physical physical therapists and entrepreneur who owns a pilates studio? Why physical therapist need to own exercise? She's a fired up about that. You're GonNa hear that and then We wrap up with Dr Tim. Fox who twenty one years ago launched a practice with a bunch of people in his ear. Saying you can't do that. You're not allowed. You can't offer outpatient outpatient physical therapy under Medicare part B. older adults in their home. You can't be the Uber of older adults. Anyway he read the Medicare rules and recs then and now and he said doesn't say I can't in fact if you read it it says I can do it and I'm going to do it and he did it. And he's been doing it for twenty one years with Fox rehabilitation so he got up there and he wanted to just tear the cover it off so this was an invite only event for one hundred people. That's it we have people in their win. We stopped at one hundred and great environment great audience but I did record it and we weren't gonNA release because wanted to keep that room special and then I had more than a few of you reach out to me and say hey I had a friend who was there who said it was great but I couldn't he dare or people who were there who wanted to hear it again and kind of kind of get inspired a second time and then I thought man it would suck if someone really wanted to be there but they couldn't afford board to go to. CSM or geography wasn't allowed or timing or anything like that. So that's when we decided. Hey we got the recording. Let's release it. So Hashtag unfiltered Rosa three speakers. You're going to hear from.

That's a great are- question I feel like that's something that I'm still establishing to this day. <hes> my easiest way to describe it is on basically liaison between clinical providers and the medical record so what are in your department has background in medicine in some way shape or form so nurses physicians physical therapists and we work with the medical record but partner with our counterparts are actually actually saying he should and help figure out better workflows how to optimize the tools. How do we integrate between clinical factors and the metal locker and it helps to have the clinical background so that when things break AAC or when we want to make changes we actually have the expertise versus it just being with Aichi background? What are some of the problems or some of the solutions? I guess you'd be a helping to provide that typically. Come up in your role. Oh I'm a lot of what I look into is one updating anything new that is coming with clinical practice so if there's any changes to clinical practice guidelines that we want to enhance in the medical record that is one thing that we do and even more and more on a regular basis what we are doing is figuring out how to make a medical record more efficient in user friendly for our clinicians. I I think one of the big things that a lot of people struggle with as you get into. You the clinical road because you actually want to spend time with your patients. Not then endless hours doing notes or degree. Have your face in front of a computer the whole time so that's really something that I'm passionate about and try to reinforce like less clicks amazing like only one or two things over the course of a year or ten years that should be meaningful is cool and know that there's a P._t.. On the other side of that and you know not to knock our I._T.. Colleagues but <hes> you bring a level of expertise knowing that the fact that get one or two extra clicks per per patient is going to add up in a date. It's GonNa drive you nuts and that you're on the other side advocating for it. That's really really cool. How'd you find that position? Man I think have is a stroke of luck really <hes> I was lucky enough to meet <hes> warranty Lee who is a physical therapist your transition out of clinical care into process improvements and I was highly interested in processes but really didn't have any and you business background to speak of however in my previous job working in full time clinical care. I was doing a lot of medical record because I was like how am I spending as much time. Why do I need to get eight for work to finish my notes from the previous day is it wasn't it wasn't adding up and so I started my job search and looking actually for improvement jobs? It's clinical informatics physician had just recently opened in and it literally looks word for word what had been trying to accomplish my job so I stumble into it and I'm thankful every single day for it. I WanNa talk about what you think is the need for P._T.. To develop non-clinical soft skills leadership and healthcare professionals we say we like to be we want to be at the table. How can people who run hospital systems? Don't pay more attention to tease well. We'd have P._T.'s enrolls like yours. In leadership roles in in different spots not just in the clinic talk about that for a second interesting when I I just think about leaving true clinical practice I actually felt extremely guilty and I worked for like months and months and <hes> well trained and basically see like one of my qualified for and I really didn't think I would call by or anything else and I think in other areas of healthcare. That's not necessarily the case. There's leadership position and different the opportunities that can be taken advantage of and I think we need to be doing a better job of preparing ourselves as business managers leaders and basically other than our healthcare system so that we can be at the table. I'm also someone associated with it. I I felt <hes> even after I lacked critical factors that it was taboo to P._T.. And I hope that that changes over time because there is. In such a need for the non clinical physician because we do need our voices represented because so often we're kind of left out because we're somewhat of a minority compared to nursing physician Herbert. I'm over here nodding along with you. It's not a great great to New Jersey podcast hosts but when you were talking about <hes> you know feeling guilty about leaving clinical practice but wanting to stay in the profession I practiced for for a year and orthopedics pediatrics and knew that I wanted to do something communications wise but yeah experienced experienced that guilt and I still do. I still get sideways glances from colleagues when I say I'm not doing a full clinical role and I still to their days. I'm fine with it and there's days where I'm like. ooh I feel super inadequate and guilty for doing it so I'm just glad to have somebody else. Bringing that up. I'm sure in your role you're dealing with healthcare and technology and the intersection in case people are thinking. Maybe that's GonNa go away. I got a spoiler alert for you. It's not so talk talk about those combination right there healthcare technology from your perspective for a sec yeah I mean I think one of the biggest trends worseing is aimed towards telehealth and I know a lot of people may think that that kind of an interesting weird aw for physical therapy particularly because we're so hands on however I do think there's a lot of opportunity when you start to look into wearable technology and having we tracking our patients compliance with home exercise program. How long are we reaching people in remote areas? I live in Colorado and I feel like a lot of people in these communities could benefit from outreach and so there's a lot of movement telehealth and I I'm really excited to see how that research to integrate with their medical records and how to insert patient compliance and hopefully overly patient outcome. We need to be part out of the conversation. If not we're going to be we're going to be maybe not last in line but we're sure is not going to be I unless we get involved right so we got to be in the conversation. At least I'm glad that you're there standby. Stay tuned. We'll be right back to the P..

"PT typecast with Jimmy MacKay to look for more. If they wanted to get super geeky, and they wanted to go to the lit where where would you suggest they go? So I always I am always in PubMed. And I have the emails that come to me every week with what's new in the PD research. So, you know, get get right into PubMed. If you're looking for some specific trainings, I really very much recommend power moves trainings that Dr Sacchi barley does like I mentioned there's also less BT big, which is another amplitude based training. They are delivered differently. Not better or worse. Just differently where LSAT big is delivered one on one four days a week and for four weeks where power moves can be delivered that way or it can be delivered in a group setting. It can be you know, kind of one modality you offer. It doesn't have to be the only modality. So those are a couple of trainings. That are fantastic. I also mention. End. The neuro section has a Parkinson's course that kind of travels around the country. And that's when I went to when it was first offered at CSM a few years ago in that bad is also fantastic. But you guys are all you're throwing punches and kicks and getting sweaty. And. Focused pads. And there's well. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. For sure I think they're usually more scared that they're gonna hit me than I am sneered that they're gonna hit me. That's so it's fun. You know, now, it's you know, now, I'm using air quotes where people can't see you're going having physical therapy. Yeah. You are going to a class with other bat ball who are similar and different. You know from you. And you guys are doing this thing together. And man, if that isn't a great way to keep people compliant with no matter what you're what you're you're no issue. That's a great way to do. It is at that social component. That sounds fun. Yeah. It's very fun. And like you said there's a lot of accountability. If you're not showing up for class, your classmates are gonna you know, be calling you and emailing you and checking on you because you're better be at class. So, you know, people have consistent partners that they work out with sometimes. So, you know, your your your teammates are depending on you to be there. But it's it's nice for accountability. Like, you said you also chair with before we we got phone here. The some articles you mentioned Peterson king Cohen and horseback and physical therapy in two thousand sixteen. Article was cognitive contributions to freezing of gait in Parkinson's disease. The implication for physical rehabilitation, so many great ideas to implement from from that particular paper, just other example, where people can kind of get into lit as well. And then you know, trying to yourself. Yeah. So at you report, I've never done any boxing, but but your self. Yeah. So I like I said I'd appaled initially with some boxing, just some basic punches how to hold met. And then when I started doing a little bit of boxing training, myself, the classes, just got exponentially more fun more. Interesting more challenging and we were working on legit bite skills. Legit combinations blocking you know, the defensive moves became more legitimate. Even though we weren't you know, nobody was getting hit. So just adding more of a cognitive challenge to it with all of these different moves. It's been fantastic since I've been learning some skills, myself killer, workout two. And last thing that you wanted to suggest learning more about Parkinson's, or if you're hearing this and going, hey, tell me more glasses or one way as you mentioned, the the classy took it CSM or reading as you mentioned, the literature, but finding some other people in connecting socially similarly, how I found you outgoing smart creative group neuro PT's on on Facebook that you could try to join neuro collaborative professionals. You said that's a great place to find information as well. Yeah, they're a lot of narrow political specialists in that group, but there's also some crossover with folks who are more geriatrics specialists. And so there's a lot of cross talk. Lots of folks who are interested in working with people with Parkinson's but also with other neuro conditions. So that's a it's a great community. Especially like, I'm I'm in North Carolina. And I'm the only NCIS for about in, you know, an hour in any direction. And so I have some fantastic orthopedic manuals, therapists, I work with. But you know, it's a great community for me. To be able to get online and kind of trouble shoot some things with with other NCSA's. So you're never alone. Like, just find your tribe and build that community make support we like to call them geek Dems, you wanna find other geeks and your geek DM they'll do like that. Yeah. I love when I'm in different Facebook groups, and you just see someone who you can tell through their writing. They're just kind of exasperated like can someone please help me? I've tried ten things. And then not working. Then you watch you come back in our later, and there's like twenty five comments of different. Hey, try first of all of our sorry to hear your your exhausted. Or you're you're at the end of their rope. Try this or how about this? And so that could please the neuro collaborative professionals group on Facebook is I'm imagining one of those places where you can go get some insight and vent a little. But then get some get some knowledge and get a little bit of a boost. Yeah. I I think it's great the other thing I would say about that is narrow PT's. I'm I'm sure it's true for all PT's, but like neuro PT's. Just wanna share like there's it doesn't really feel like there's competition to be the best. It's how can we serve patients? How can we make our communities better? How can we deliver better care? So it is a beautiful relationship. It's not a competition at all or didn't prepare for this. I don't think but. Free questions. They write for three questions. Sure. On the hunt seat with three questions on the PT. Pint cast are here we go. It's brought to you by our friends from Arias, medical staffing. You're in North Carolina. I'm in New York, we've got PT's all over the country, or is finds PT's jobs all fifty states short term assignments and whole hashtag travel PT. That's the thing man. You can go be a PT in Hawaii for a couple of weeks. Go to Alaska, Florida, Maine of matter rivers mountains beaches. They got you covered what they have available. And if you're looking how how do you get your license, you know, moved around and get transferred from state to state. They've got someone in the organization that will help you do that housing. See us. What does that mean? They've got someone that'll help you do that. So they'll walk through all the hard parts. Let you do what you wanna do which is be a PT where you want to do it. Find them online at AU E, U US, medical dot com. First question since they have positions in all fifty states. You're in North Carolina. Where would you want to go and be a PT if you if you could go anywhere you want you've got a free plane ticket where would you wanna go for thirteen weeks? So I would definitely say. Say upstate New York, which is. Leaving. Yeah. Up very often. What do you mean? So I'm from upstate New York and right outside of Ithaca right in the league. That's gorgeous. Yeah. It literally it is gorgeous. That's a stupid dead joke. But. New york. That's why. Yup. I would definitely say New York state. That's cool. Yeah. It's nice. I would say, you know, in the summer, or at least when you're near ski hill. I would say the winter. But you know, I definitely don't think I'm as tough as I used to be with the cold. Second question is something that you read that really inspired you to be a book paper, quote anything. I think one of the books that I've read in the last couple of years that is really inspired me is more of a functional medicine book. It's the end of all timers by Dr Phil Bredesen's, the reason I would say that is you know, when we think of Alzheimer's, or when we used to think of cognitive impairment, it was kind of the sentence. And there wasn't a whole lot. You could do at least that was the the thought at the time. And what we're what we're seeing is that if we get to the root cause of why people are having cognitive impairment than we can actually potentially reverse cognitive impairment, and one of the things I think is really. Inspiring about that is I think that's the way we're going with Parkinson's as well. Let's get to some of the the root causes of why people are having neuro degenerative conditions. Let's get to some of these causes reverse them butts intercept people early let's prevent Parkinson's. So, and I think this is where we're going with crossover between Parkinson's and neurodegenerative diseases Alzheimer's, as you mentioned that we like to see the the the the research is saying intense exercise is some of the best ways to stave off or slow the progression of and that's the perfect. That's right. Where our profession is. So that's great last question on three questions who was someone the audience should know more about maybe someone in or out of the profession. This is your chance to give someone a cool shout out. I would say a couple of the members of the Noura collaborative. There's Clare MacLean and Julie Hershberg both of them are out in California. And they're fantastic and CS is and I've really learned a lot from them. And they really inspire me there. So. Creative always sharing ideas and the ad. They're they're really inspiring to me go or your off to those three questions on them past do on the show is your parting shots. This is the parting shots. The polling shot is brought to you by rock tape. More than just a tape company. Rock tape is a movement company, tools and education for medical professionals.

"So I would have to say, no, not necessarily. But you just gave the great example of bird who they wound up finding out. He did have a tear but needed surgery, my guess that. At tear that they found on his imaging was probably there for a while. And you could image a bunch of people like I said, and it really is they're going to act on it based on symptoms in ability versus what you find on a scan. Because again, if you scan me believe me man, you're going to find a lot of stuff before we wrap Jimmy anything to add on the Stanton injury. Or no stand injured right now, I'm looking at by biceps injuries and especially a tendon injury. And again, I don't know the ins and outs. But I would say this is going to be short-term. They're probably going to reduce his workload for a little bit. He's going to he's going to do some non baseball. I'm using air quotes non baseball work, which means staying in shape, but they're probably going to limit his throwing as well. So again, these things can come together in terms of where the labor actually is where the biceps tendons because the biceps has two heads where it attaches one of those attachments is near the labor them. My guess is they're just going to limit his activities for a little while. My guess is you'll see him back in a week or two doing some D H work. Hopefully. We get a little bit warmer. So some of these injuries, hopefully, hopefully decrease, but I don't think anything major for Giancarlo. I'd say fingers are definitely cross. Right. Put the hopes and prayers in terms of that labor ministry, again, he is a doctor of physical therapy host of the PT podcast, which you can find a PT podcast dot com or wherever else you find podcasts, including this one. Of course, the pinstripe lanes podcast, Jimmy MacKay, great hang last week..

"Back to the PT typecast with Jimmy MacKay. How it works? Yeah. What does what does it look like from start to finish? So we get referrals from fellow physical therapists in town, rehab facilities, independent case managers, and then builders and designers who are working with those who may have a specific diagnosis or maybe advancing age. We'll sit down for an initial consultation. Just like you would do if you were working in a hospital or working at a clinic, and we'll talk with our clients and their families or caregivers whoever is really closely involved in their day to day. We'll talk about concerns. We'll talk about goals just like you would do during an initial evil and we'll talk about estimated budget. And then we'll also at that point in time big in communication, if they've got a home builder already identified we'll be communicating within if they don't have a builder identified we can sometimes help to point them in the right direction of somebody. Who would be a good candidate during that initial consultation. We'll do a home safety assessment. So we'll kind of do a walk through or roll through with our clients. Watch them move in their space at that time. I'm able to analyze their balance. I'm studying their gate, I'm looking at their endurance as they're moving through their bathroom, and they reach their hand up to grab for grab bar that isn't there? I can make a mental note of that as as we're going through the space, and I I can also identify. Okay. This area is at an increase risk for falls. Because of this this this and this home safety assessment and mobility assessment kinda rolled into one is your husband with you at the same time. And you know, while you're doing all this if he's available. He is. Yes of that. And I'm sure through his head. He's thinking, okay. How can I insert myself? He's listening to both of those things like evaluations going on at the same time. Absolutely. And he he helps to ground me in life and. In business when I'm saying. Yeah, we'll not miss well out. We'll make this wider. We'll do this and this and this him they will maybe not that. Well, that's a little bearing that structural. We can't do that. But here are some other options. Just fantastic. Good combination. Yeah. You've got some you've got some examples of of stuff that you've done some work done on your social media as well. You shared that. Yes. There are. So we recently worked with a gentleman in the Austin area who had Parkinson's early onset is now in a wheelchair and he lives with his mother who is advancing age, and they really just needed a lot of distance didn't know where to start, and we're kind of constricted in what they did and didn't want to do in their home. So we were able to provide them with three different options. Three different price ranges and three different. Varying levels of how intense this remodel was going to be and how impactful it was going to be. Changing their day to day as we move forward. That's fantastic. I love that. You're are are you mainly working with a particular demographic or population so far or where did you see this going? So we wanna keep it open to be able to work with anyone. So whether you're preparing to care for an aging parent or you've been through a traumatic event or an injury had a stroke. You've had a brain injury. You've had a final cord injury. You've got a chronic condition that you're kind of adjusting to and managing you're having a little one and find out that your child is going to be more medically complex or you're just ad vanishing age, and you don't have a specific diagnosis or disease, and you just want to stay in your home. We want we want to work with everyone. We feel that we have a lot of value offer, regardless of what your personal situation is. And we have the ability to make something super specific to what you need not. Only now looking at whether you've got a disease or not what the progression is going to look like in the next six months. Six years fifty years. I love the older adults children host trauma, chronic aging in place. It congratulations, you're aging. Really, well, but you'd like to stay where you are a physical therapist and a contractor can help you do that. I mean, you, of course, you got hooked up with yours in marriage. But nothing says the physical therapists can't just fine on their local community. You don't have to marry him or her. But you can't I would recommend that. He's fantastic. People wanna find out about your organization and reach out to you the website lift they consulting dot com. That's L A F E consulting dot com. What are some lessons that you learned when you decided to do this and then put it into practice? Yeah. So another another reason this came about is when I was in PT school kind of classic thing done in Texas. And I don't know if this is common in other places is a project that we do. You spend twenty four hours in a wheelchair. And to me that was eye opening not just because it was something I had never done before. But you learn very quickly that even if something is ADA accessible or up to code. It doesn't mean that it's functional and so Americans with disabilities. Act made made a huge impact for a lot of people in that those I it's going to continue for many years to come. But knowing that you can implement some different strategies into designing your home space because you don't have to follow ADA code for residential construction project. You can make the design specific to the person who's going to be living there that was something that I never would have known until I had started this process and able to take you know, what I learned from that project and folded into some of the design work that we do have been really beneficial as well, it's just a good. Idea to to do. It's you're looking you're able to look through people's eyes. You put in that situation PT school like many of us were and you said I'm going to do something about this. And you know being able to team up with someone else who can actually make those changes in real time is a fantastic placement for for physical therapy. I just love that. Absolutely. What else we want to talk about? And if any other questions, I didn't ask that you typically, I'm, you know, this isn't necessarily standard your little bit different. So anything what what are you typically get asked by fellow physical, therapists or people across you bake a big question. You know, it is you know, what not only what what do your services entail? But what about after the fact, so we'll do our assessments? We'll come up with the design work taken out the tape measure, putting it into the computer coming up with blueprints for you to follow or for your contractor or homebuilder to follow. And then we also provide our clients with a letter of medical necessity. So that. We can advocate on their behalf to third party payer. If if that's an option a lot of times things aren't covered, but we definitely fight for our clients whenever we can and try to get as much of the cost offset as possible, and there's some grants and programs like that that that we reach out to as well or those grants local to your area, they national a lot of them are local to the area yester-.

Welcome two hours of the PT podcast has a guest on the show right now excited bring on Catherine Franklin. She's a physical therapist acute care ICU physical therapist at the University Health system in San Antonio's premier teaching hospital and level one trauma center and alongside her and her husband. She's a co owner of Lafitte consulting, a barrier-free home design company working to create beautiful spaces that can be enjoyed by those of all ages and ability levels, Catherine welcome to the show. Thank you so much having me. Yeah. No pump to an came across you on social media. Like, we do for for many of our guests and said, what's this? So let's start with let's start with you since we got on the phone. What's your background? How long you've been a PT? And and what's your roundabout, physical therapy, superhero origin story? So I am a physical therapist ten Antonio. I graduated from Texas State PT program in may of two thousand seventeen. Sat for my boards that summer and then have been in clinical practice since August of that year school. I'm still fairly fresh about a year and a half of practice under my belt due mainly acute care is used to still as well. Yes, sir. That's there. So I was a student at university hospital never in a million years day. I think I would go the acute care route. But had my first clinical experience there at the encouragement of our of one of my professors and shell in love with it and have been really enjoying it ever since or say about fifty percent of the time. It's that story I would've I was never gonna work with older adults or I was never gonna work with pediatrics and the other fifty percent is. Well, I knew exactly what I was going to do. But it's fifty percent you'd think it would be higher. You know, exactly what you wanna do. But it's not. Yeah. I I put my foot in my mouth and moved on. Yeah. But if you find something that you're you're you're passionate about by. All means, you know. What if you put your foot your mouth, and then go run for something that you really care about. So I love that. I wanna talk to you about la- fee consulting my pronouncing that right? Not quite. But that's okay. It's buffet. And that is that it Spanish for faith. Also, like, belief hope confidence and conviction. And the reason why we chose that name is number one because we wanted to stick stick to south Texas roots? But number two because that's really what we want to allow our clients to have is that hope and that confidence to stay in their homes that safely as possible. Or would you say we were talking about your husband wasn't Stevo? Yes, sir. Excellent. So actually my sweetheart your sweetheart, what are you to do what what describe the Fe? What do you guys actually accomplish? And tell me about the people that you get to work with. Yeah. So not long after I started working at the hospital. A big part of what we do is discharge planning, and I learned very quickly that at a trauma center at a stroke center at r. Teaching hospital and also at the at the county hospital where kind of all of that rolled into one you have to sometimes get really creative with your discharge planning for your patient and really quick learned that a lot of times we have to make recommendations for patients to go somewhere other than home because their homes are not well set up for them to return there, and that just completely broke my heart. So had this idea sprung it on my husband. So what do you think about this? Let's combine your knowledge of construction because he runs a construction company. My knowledge if therapy, and we can work together to make recommendations to allow people to modify or build new homes that they can stay in for as long as possible. Wow. This is cool, and I'm particularly drawn towards ideas like this, and you can find the website at the fake, insulting dot com. Just take a little peek into what these guys are able to do. I love it. Particularly because it feels like something similar that. I did I took my passion. And the thing that I used to do radio talk about it all the time on the show. And just said I bought it with PT. And what you did was you said you saw holy sauce moment that was lacking you combined it with someone else, which I like other people involved an expert in the different thing. Your husband. You know, building these things that would solve that problem. And I love when those things come together. And I always say this when I especially when I speak in front of students, there's a straight line between any two points. You know that from geometry, right? I mean, you found a line from where you were in the whole you saw you pass right through your husband. And you said, let's go this way together, and you did that. So what how how long ago did you start this? And and who do you get to interact with and what stories do you have four so far? So we we had this strain. This came about about a year ago. And so the, you know, we're all the time coming up with these wild ideas of drink that we have and things that we wanna do plans to execute. And so this is something that. We were all in on and it actually happened. You know, it wasn't just one of those things that we talked about we actually did it. So I started the process of getting some advanced certification. I'm some special training in accessible home design. And so I am a certified aging in place specialist through the national association of home builders. We've got all of my physical therapy knowledge as PT's, you know, we're experts in the movement system. So I'm able to implement that into what I do. And now, I have this additional knowledge in design and construction, and I'm able to better marry those two passions got that certification a little less than a year ago and has been working to build the business and grow what we're passionate about it since that time so hold on go back 'cause I've never heard of this type of certification that I saw it on your website. And I said I gotta ask her about this. I love the fact that it's at certified aging in place specialization, and then it's through the national. Station of home builders. I just assumed it was going to be through a continue. Education course, a state chapter, but this is from home this is outside of the PT world. I love that. So talk about that certification, real briefly. Yeah. So it's something that I have to keep up with with my own continuing education outside of the continuing Ed that I need for my PT license. It's a partnership with the national association of home builders and the AARP and while it's geared towards construction professionals and architects, and designers, and remodelers it's also open to healthcare professionals like PT's OT's and medical doctors from the things that you learn what what are some of the takeaways from from that certification. It sounds really interesting. It was really cool. It was neat to be surrounded by a group of construction guys. Obviously, I get along really well with those people that married one, but it was really cool to be able to provide the perspective of a physical therapist. When we were doing things like case studies and looking. Plans and things like that one of the big takeaways that I got was that a lot of the times these contractors have the best interests of their clients at heart, but they just don't have the education necessary to be able to make the most appropriate intervention. But got a really good example that is an unfortunate situation. But I think a good kind of learning opportunity for a lot of people is there was I have a colleague who is a contractor in the Houston area who had a friend who was doing a bathroom remodel for a client with Parkinson's. And he thought that he was doing all of the right things by making some of these recommendations, he said, okay? This guy's got Parkinson's. I don't want him to slip and fall. So I'm gonna put this super slip resistant tile down in the bathroom. Well, classic Parkinson. Ian, gait pattern involves shuffling your feet. So what ultimately happened with that? Super slippers. Assistant tile lead the client to fall because he could. Couldn't he didn't have the step height necessary to clear his foot from the ground. And so you, and I would look at that an immediate say, no, that's not a good idea. But somebody who doesn't have that level of training with think that they were doing something really good. When in actuality, they were ultimately hurting someone report, and you were just able to see the faster, and I love how you mentioned perspective and wanting to be able to help and you're able to blend that and and now in through through your consulting agency. You're able to put those two things together pretty perfectly. Yeah. Is low PT podcasts. Hey, guys, the movement maestro here.

Casting physical therapists around the world is this is the PT pint cast may I introduce you. Here's your host, physical therapist Jimmy MacKay show, recording this one with someone very very interesting on the phone right now is Heather Linden. Heather welcome to the program. Heather you've got a really really different. I was on Twitter, and you kinda get into rabbit holes on Twitter, right? You get into a really weird stuff on Twitter came across your profile. Tell everybody what you do. Currently. I'm the director of physical therapy for the USC ultimate fighting championship ultimate fighting championship. So very new position that was recently stab wished eighteen months ago and super new for every thing about working in combat sports and stuff for myself with pertains Emma may though had you know, the background of working with Olympic athletes and our conduct. Athletes so that kind of transitioned pretty seamlessly. Yes. Talk talk about that just a little bit. But first of all, I love just the term combat athletes within really cool, and I saw that you had to Olympic under your belt working with with athletes. I've done actually three Olympic Games. And then one youth Winter Olympic Games as well. The London Olympics the social impacts the real Olympics. And then they usual vixen Norway. Wow. And you're saying combat athletes narrow that down for someone like me who would sports usually we consider combat athletes is going to be gymnastics. It's going to be wrestling women's men's freestyle men's Greco. It's going to be judo. It's going to be taekwondo. It's going to be boxing. So those are the main combat sports coming out of the Olympic of love that you lead with gymnastics that was not the first fourth that would come to mind. But the second you set it. I was like man those landings are mean. Yeah. And it's pretty crazy. 'cause most people don't think gymnastics. Combat sport. But you look at their body awareness being in the air landings moves that they make their bodies do in rotational components. How much the balance the single leg stuff that they do how that translates really much into that combat world as well. Pretty much stuff. The gymnasts do at the Olympic level. They're pretty much ninjas. Yes. Exactly. So that is cool. So you're seeing of of a righty of athletes at the Olympic level doing a bunch of different sports your heads. Gotta be like a PT. Right. We're we're we're trained movement experts is what the likes to call us that allows you to view an athlete saying, okay. What what did the demands of your sport? And you can hop between gymnastics or Greco Roman or anything. Really? So we'll cut you into that. Real quick. I grew up in sports myself like have always been in athlete, you know, always kind of with a tomboy growing up. So I thought whatever the boys could do I could do it as well. How the gymnastics background was around wrestling. Never. Did it myself way? Brother was just kind of was always around sports always had that draw from a physical therapy standpoint to transition into that. And when the opportunity after being an outpatient orthopedic P T for about five years presented itself with the Olympic training center. I jumped right on it. So I was definitely like, you know, this is where I perceive my future going scored. World really excites me and Tennessee what they're doing so far with it. And what can the progress that will happen in the next fifteen twenty years in sports new that with the new I wanted to go and upon getting that Olympic opportunity than landing scoring a fulltime job with them. You know, it really opened my eyes to all the different disciplines. I mean, there's over fifty sports in the Olympic and pan and para Pan Am, and so you get to learn a lot of sports and for me, it was really cool because being based out of Colorado Springs. We were kind of like the hub where all the different sports tennis cycled in summer and winter athletes being able to see the different components that each sport kind of you know, the trends that you would see with injuries the trends that you would see with the everyday practices and things like that. And just how you could really wrap your head around that. And then look at it like, you said more from a movement specialists looking in treating the whole body rather than just, you know, the one little symptom that is presenting itself, we'll get his UFC stuff and second best Olympic moment that comes to mind or one of your favorites. Because we've got to be a lot. What would? What comes to mind working with those ridiculously talented athletes? You know, honestly, it's hard to pick one best. I think the best thing that I can say that come out of it. When you the athlete that has literally devoted their entire life. I mean, I'm talking from sometimes the age of five or six and literally gets stand on that podium, if the most amazing thing ever, and, you know, auto having those injuries stories where you know off the blows out the raciale at the Olympic qualifier. But they win the Olympic qualifier. And how you get them to an Olympic Games. So like more of it. I would say would be the moments in the relationships. I developed with these athletes and seeing the struggles and the ups and downs between injuries between devoting their whole life for this. And then the proudest moment of being on that podium. I would say in London Olympics. It was pretty cool because I knew the men's gymnastics team. Really, well, but then they didn't perform as much as they should have in that sense of what the expectations were so to be there by their side. Even when it up the low, you know what I mean where they were upset. That was pretty cool the swim team. I was kinda partnered with them in the real Olympic so had been out to a lot of their competitions throughout the eighteen months prior. And then being able to sit there the last night with all of them and celebrate having won the most medals possible. And also, I think which was pretty cool is the average age of our of the team, you know, in the real lympics is starting to trend more, you know, late twenties early thirties where back in the day Olympic athletes really looked at as being these young kids really and now with the help of recovery and body awareness and PT's in cutter does that whole multi disciplinary approach you see the longevity of these athletes in them just attaining their goals year after year, which is pretty cool is really cool. You had a couple. There was a decent swimmer to on that real team.

"Back this podcast. Jimmy MacKay PT podcast for breaking down that whole Aaron judge situation for us. Hopefully, we see judge back. Hopefully, if you're going to buy this ballpark pass for September. You'll get to see Mr. judge at some point. Yes. For those who missed it the Yankees issued in August a ballpark pass first time they've done this. I think ever, but certainly with the new stadium forty nine ninety nine it. Gotcha in every originally scheduled game for the month of August. So it was not good for that makeup game on that Monday against the Mets. But you got into pretty much every other game that month. It's similar to the pinstripe. Passwords, you could just stand anywhere. You don't get a seat. However with the ballpark past depending on seed availability, you are eligible to upgrade to a see in. Of course, unlike the ball, the pinstripe pastors no drinking colluded with the ballpark passed the month long pass to get into Yankee state. Idiom and cheer on the Yanks. Fewer games in September included with this pass eleven as opposed to the sixteen in August. But it's timber year might have a pennant race. You might not the Yankees. Maybe hopefully, you're at the very least trying to secure that wildcard spot and secure the fact that you know, they'll at the moment at least host that wildcard game in October. So you get that you also get a series against the Red Sox, which I mean, this that's almost unprecedented. The fact that you have this kind of all access pass in the Red Sox games or just included with it is kind of cool. We did by the way reach out again to the keys to see a why they're offering it for September. And be if this is something we could expect in two thousand nineteen they said they would get back to us next week. So stay tuned in next week's pinstripe lanes podcast. Hopefully, we have a statement from the Yankees, and or somebody from the Yankees on ideally, somebody from ticketing and marketing onto kind of talk about this this ballpark pass because I am fascinated by for sure. Now as far as why they're offering it in September with a potential postseason run and the Red Sox series. I do think there are a few things to take into consideration. Here. A fewer games be with people going back to school returning to their normal Monday through Friday schedules. You may see a bit of a dip in attendance, especially if there isn't a pennant race attached to this see on the weekends. Now, you're going to be competing with college, football and pro football. Of course, there's d I hope that. Of the I mean, I hope there's a pennant race. But also hope d- doesn't happen. Which is there was a drop in the temperatures, obviously September that's going to happen at some point falls going to have to come already kind of feels like it's it's on the way and around the corner. But so there are some other factors that may be playing again. Maybe they're also looking at historically how the Yankees do in September from a ticket sales standpoint from an attendant standpoint. So maybe that's also factoring. And then nonetheless, though, the ballpark price. You would think if it wasn't popular the first go around that it wouldn't be back for September. So they had to have had some success with it to bring it back. That's my field my own personal feeling hopefully next week. We we hear straight from the source, but it's a Yankees dot com. If you didn't get the Email this past week. I believe you click on tickets, a hopefully there you could find it. If you didn't get the Email find somebody who did maybe they can Ford to the invite because same thing is with the August ballpark pass you will have to register the opportunity to buy it. There you go a little ticketing a little injury news a sell out Heidi Wotton, who maybe we'll have on next week. If we don't have somebody from the Yankees ticket department on and that's it. Thank you so much again for rating reviewing and subscribing, I tunes Google play Stitcher. Tune in pretty much wherever you get podcast episode. Number fourteen.

"Whether he lied about paying that he was or wasn't feeling or just simply said he Noah gimme another quarters on shot. And I'm going to try to go through with this. What are you looking at long term damage wise with an injury like this? If he were to try to play through it not one hundred percent. Longterm damage probably isn't going to be a whole lot. But it will be uncomfortable. I think the swelling might be the biggest issue if he kept trying to play through. And there was a bunch of pain to be honest with you. I think I think the six to eight week Mark would probably be more accurate. I know when they first came out they said the three two three two three two six or something like that. And then a week ago trying to extend that the long term effects not too dangerous. But again, I mean if you had a franchise tag in baseball, he he would be wearing it. He did get a quarter zone. Shop already. I believe once is that something that should alarm fans are now now that's a standard operating procedure like with an injury like that especially in the wrist, and that's just going to. That's just going to work to reduce swelling in there. So no red flags there either you could find the PT podcasts pretty much wherever you can find this podcast, including of course, Google play and I tunes Jimmy MacKay. Hey, buddy. Thank you so much for the knowledge. And let's go Yankees and time loved the pinch. Love the show roughly thanks for having me on coming up next the ballpark pass. It's back for September. We'll tell you what we know about it next here on the pinstripe planes podcast. Welcome.
