We get on the Physical Therapy treadmill right out of school, soon to discover an unfortunate reality of feeling wobbly and unsteady for that first patient. Fumbling with our laptops, asking too many non-relevant questions, not getting to the core of what matters most, we spend energy laterally not forward. So often we are not sure where to go, we just go. It’s the price of admission.
Some say it takes 10,000 hours, some say it takes mentoring, some say it takes pro-active self-study and reflection. Whatever it takes, it ruins some, while others it pushes into a newfound passion. The expensive price of admission is not the seven years of study, it’s gaining clarity that costs us the most.
Managed right, this PT treadmill gives you renewed focus, an endorphin high, or a feeling of balance. We belong.
The treadmill runs, never stops, needing your constant attention. Disruptions in our day are the incline, costing you more energy and leaving us short of oxygen at days end.
Discovery is the decline, bringing us momentum of better connections, empathy, the bright light moments that accelerate our skills. Soon you discover if you push hold to stay in momentum, you lose your legs, it’s too fast. Life’s balance is disrupted, and you lose footing.
It doesn’t take long to understand how to adjust to the disruptions and discoveries, best by reflecting in the “why” of what you do.
Blessed to be part of one of the largest Physical Therapy
Networks, Ivy Rehabilitation Networks, we often reflect on the “why” in our staff
meetings and daily huddles, a review of our values.

· Here at PTW, we are lucky to be part of something bigger than us. It’s been eighteen years of adjustments to the incline or decline that gives us a chance to engage with our market, celebrate victories, and share a common sense of purpose.
