Since I joined the work force, I realized how much I truly enjoy some of the more unique and puzzling cases. Finding the cause of a perplexing problem and adapting treatment and rehabilitation accordingly, brings me an incredible amount of joy. Naturally, there is no such thing as a normal physio case, as each problem has a different history and a huge variety of contributing factors.
I believe that knowledge is power. If a patient truly understands the root cause of their pain, then we, as physiotherapists, can further teach them how to manage the problem. At times, pain can take away your sense of independence and make you feel powerless. This motivates a therapist’s main goal: to restore the belief that pain does not control you.
