Manual Edge_Determining the origins of your pain

LEARN, DO, TEACH At Manual Edge, we live by the Learn, Do, Teach mantra. As therapists we learn about the human body in all of its intricacies. We usually try treatment techniques on each other and ourselves during the learning process to help our own bodies work better. Then we use this knowledge and the techniques on our patients to teach them about their bodies and how they can help themselves. I remember when I was in PT school at the University of Wisconsin (Go Badgers!), and the story of an applicant from the previous year that was a school teacher. This person wanted to change professions and become a PT. They said the reason they wanted to change careers was because they had come to hate teaching. Unfortunately, or fortunately for their potential future patients, their application was rejected by our PT program director because they hated teaching. A large portion of what we do is to empower our patients by teaching our patients about their bodies and how to make them work better and feel better. Most of us PTs love to teach our patients about how the body works. We also really enjoy discussing anatomy and showing you anatomy through pictures or diagrams. It is no secret that PTs love anatomy…it is a requirement to effectively treat the body. We are very much anatomy NERDS!
