Woodlyn PT - January 2019




A Year to Remember


The start of a new year is a good time to reflect on the past and plan for the future. What were some of your major accomplishments in 2018? What are some areas you could have improved? How do you use these experiences to do even better in 2019? I’ve put some thought into this, and there are three big things I want to accomplish in the coming year. First, I want to start helping more people. At Woodlyn PT, we have the resources to help any number of patients deal with pain or rehab. It’s my job as a business owner to get the word out so patients in need can more easily find the practice and the help they need. My second major goal for 2019 revolves around education. I have plans to launch regular workshops for patients and nonpatients alike. When someone is in pain, they can’t recover if they don’t have the right tools. I’d like to host workshops focused on

the experience. After years in the industry, I have a great deal of wisdom I would like to impart on PTs who are just starting out. There are things about being a

physical therapist and working with patients you can’t learn in school — the kind of lessons you have to

learn through firsthand experience. The more I am able to teach someone, the better they can be and the stronger our profession is in the long term. Plus, it would be nice not to be a one-man show anymore. Finally, I have a goal that I’m sure I share with many patients: I want to spend more quality time with my family. We used to travel often, bonding as a family through adventures in new places. Then, I got caught up in work, and I didn’t get away with the family for four years. I got burned out, and I had to remember the importance of taking time off. As a physical therapist, it’s important that I’m here for my patients, but I also need to be physically and mentally energized. Furthermore, it’s crucial that I’m there for my family and get to be part of their lives. Thank you for your support in 2018. I appreciate all of my patients who have come to me in the past, and I am optimistic for the future. If you know anyone who might be able to benefit from joining the practice, now is the time to send them our way. I have big plans for 2019, and you don’t want to miss out.

common problems like back pain and sciatica, providing a brief overview of what’s causing a patient’s pain, and offering resources to help them recover. I would also like to expand on the little-known factors that can cause pain. It doesn’t do much good for patients to get treatment if they don’t know that poor sitting posture or certain sleeping positions are damaging their back every day. In addition to educating my patients, I would also like to bring on a new physical therapist and show them the ropes. I’ve had the privilege of being a mentor for students in the past, and I enjoyed


Have a happy new year!
