Coronavirus (COVID-19) – BEST Piece of Health Advice

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – BEST Piece of Health Advice

With the recent spread of the Coronavirus, aka COVID-19, there’s been a ton of media coverage, which includes some solid health advice.

This includes things like proper hand-washing hygiene, avoiding large groups of people, and how to disinfect the surfaces in your home and/or work environment.

And all of this advice is great… but there’s one HUGE piece of advice that I want to share that looks at the “bigger picture”.

In my opinion, this bigger picture is the strength of your immune system.

PT vs. Chiropractic – What’s the Difference?

PT vs. Chiropractic – What’s the Difference?

One of my favorite topics is about how not all PTs and PT clinics are the same, for a number of reasons.

And another favorite question I get is this: what’s the difference between physical therapy and chiropractic?

In today’s blog/video, I want to give you my opinion on the differences between physical therapy (the way we do it at Gordon PT) and chiropractic care.

Now, before you start thinking I’m about to throw the chiropractors under the bus and tell you how awful they are, let me assure you that that’s not what I’m doing today.

Instead, I’m going to highlight a few differences, and then I’ll give you some information to help you decide how you can make the best decision for your health.

Why My “PT Skills” Don’t Matter!

Why My “PT Skills” Don’t Matter!

Not too long ago, I published a blog that was a tribute to my Dad, who recently retired from his full-time work at the clinic. If you had a chance to read about the 4 biggest things I’ve learned while working with my Dad, you may have noticed that I never mentioned anything about his “therapy skills”. Instead, I talked about how he taught me the importance of treating patients like family, going the extra mile, and showing people how much you care (before showing them how much you know…).

Does this mean that my Dad wasn’t a skilled therapist, or that he didn’t pass on some valuable treatment techniques? Not at all. It just means that, in my opinion, the other things he taught me have been more valuable to my growth as a PT than any of the PT skills he taught me. Does that make sense?
