yes it's not a very well known conference, even though the events were nice!

I was not able to properly attend Virtual SDPS live, but I did pay for the full conference so I can watch it later and also support the effort. I wish way more people would have signed up but I also wonder if it's because SDPS is not part of a big organization.

I do comment about quite a number of things. The only thing I can recall is I had a discussion with about how the risk of injury is so much higher this year due to a lack of a preseason and proper training camp. Injury risk is definitely higher if one has a history

I do enjoy listening to talk about the farce of “secondary gain”

I still don't get why people care to assume Malingering or patients lying. Clincians are too focused on this

Which is why post home health, many post op patients would benefit from quality OP PT (not the mills or the hum clinics)

I'm well aware that home health has limitations, that doesn't mean that it's sufficient to get them back to PLOF (or honestly the goal should be better than PLOF)

I mean if all PT would do is TB exercises in terms of function than I could see walking look good enough relative to that. However that’s not going to help their squatting, carrying, or ability to pick up heavier objects. I’ve treated a number after long delays w/0 OP PT, sad

You’re biasing the results of each of those measures. Which only feeds into an earlier point I made online about how those measures suck, partially cause too many people end up explaining details about various questions to patients.

I’d add that system is based on our culture. Everything has to be immediate and easily identified

Yup the biggest thing is a “I have an issue, someone else fix it immediately”

Well I can definitely say I have a patient who as a result of pain and stigma has essentially limited their physical activity for over 60 years leading to some issues. That’s not fair & it’s cause of a horrid culture with poor physical education (I think PTs can make that better)

Yes and then some catastrophize (I know it’s a taboo word right now but it applies) and it’s cause no one actually properly addressed their habits and perspectives which are ultimately contributing to their already present condition.

I agree, and working on developing healthy habits and *perspectives* is huge. In the book Atomic Habits the author says we always end up deferring to our habits, if our activity habits are essentially unhelpful, then how does that bode well for us?! & if we’re anxious over it?!
