Early rate registration is beginning now for The Tupler Technique® Training Program for professionals to be offered in June in NYC.

Since it is common for a DRA to go unnoticed by the patient and undiagnosed by the physician, patients may seek PT treatment with another musculoskeletal or neuromuscular diagnosis such as low back pain or pelvic floor dysfunction. These conditions may be comorbidities of DRA which can affect the course and prognosis of both.  It is therefore important for physical therapists to understand this connection and routinely check for a diastasis as part of any evaluation and  know how to treat a diastasis with the research and evidenced based Tupler Technique®.

The Tupler Technique® Training Program for professionals is taught three times year. The training program is two parts.  The first part is an eight  week home study program where professional teaches the program to two case studies, reads and watches all the written and video materials and learns the demonstration exam.  The second part is three days in New York City.  There is a clinic day, participation in Everybelly® Seminar and a written and demonstration exam.

After successful completion of the program, professions at their option, can work with me in a variety of different ways.  Click here to download the info package and  learn all the details and here to fill out an application.   We also have an affiliate program for professionals that refer their patients our products or services.  Our next training program starts June 1with the home study part of the program. The New York City class is August 27-29th.  Register before May 1 and get a $100 discount.  Feel free to contact Julie with any questions about the upcoming programs or to find out more about her exciting new work with platelet injections in linea alba in conjunction with the Tupler Technique® Program.

OTs and PTs – Support an Academic Therapy Program in Haiti

The Department of Rehabilitation of the Episcopal University of Haiti, Léogâne  needs the help and support of OTs and PTs in the USA.  There are many ways each and every one of us can help.
An overview of the program– The Faculty of Rehabilitation Sciences in Léogâne (FSRL) is a department of the Episcopal University of Haiti (UNEPH). Planning for FSRL began in 2011, when volunteers working at St Vincent’s Center for Handicapped Children realized how helpful it would be for St. Vincent’s to have Haitian therapists. The dream became a reality in Oct. 2015 when the first small class of students enrolled. First-year students take interdisciplinary courses at the FSIL nursing school in Léogâne, which is also a department of the Episcopal University. Second, third, and fourth year students specialize in OT or PT and graduate with a bachelor’s degree in Occupational or Physical Therapy.   The curriculum for the OT program has already been approved by the World Federation of OT, and the PT curriculum is now under review by the World Confederation of PT.  The Haiti Rehab Foundation (HRF), a 501c3,  was formed in 2014 to support the work of FSRL.

HOW CAN I HELP?

MAKE A GIFT BY CHECK made out to Haiti Rehabilitation Foundation.   Send to
Treasurer,  HRF, P.O. Box 183, Hamilton, NY 13346 USA.
WHAT CAN MY MONEY DO?

$250-pay all fees, 1 mo., 1 student
$1000-cover cost of 1 faculty vol.
$4000-per year: fund a scholarship that will cover 1 student’s fees, tuition, room & board

THE NEED FOR REHAB IN HAITI is very high.  It is estimated that 1.1 million Haitians have disabling physical and/or mental conditions. There are only about 50 Haitian PTs.  and 1 Haitian OT, who have a bachelor’s degree from overseas, mostly from the Dominican Republic.
There are good programs in Haiti for rehab technicians.  However, rehab technicians don’t practice independently.  They often depend for supervision on the many foreign OTs and PTs who come for short-term medical missions.

Here’s a Business New Year’s Resolution Everyone Can Keep

Years of consulting with therapists in private practice  has meant helping hundreds of therapists make informed decisions about key aspects of their practice.  Therapists who are optimists, pessimists, ruminators, and procrastinators. Some are analytical, others instinctive. Many have (far too many)  projects and ideas being tossed around and often float from one idea or  to the next making it challenging to decide what to work on. Inherent in helping therapists  make decisions is showing them how evaluate the opportunity cost of proceeding with one option, while eliminating another.

Here’s a resolution – how  about instituting a  new decision-making process in 2017?  In every decision there’s a cost, but there’s also a hidden cost – the opportunity cost. That’s the lost opportunities of all the other options you could have taken instead. The concept of opportunity cost is a powerful one and can help you instill reason and pragmatism behind multifaceted decisions. Weigh not only the benefits, but the costs of every decision you make.

For example –
If you are considering offering a new service and do all the preparations to get it up and running, realize that the “cost” or trade off may be that you don’t have the funds, skills, the time or the “real estate” in your office to offer another service. This comes up frequently when therapists consider running a group versus offering individual services.

If you fail to keep abreast of  a current trend or a new modality  in delivering your service, the “cost” may be your inability to serve your target market as  these new technologies make inroads in improving the delivery of that service – and you may lose clients to the competition who may be embracing the trend.

If you decide to keep employing a staff member with “issues” from chronic absenteeism to poor people skills  the “cost” may be  the time spent doing damage control, which may drain resources, and  could cause others to quit in frustration.

If you spend your time doing the books and handling collections yourself, the “cost” may be the opportunity (and time) to get before prospective clients by networking, or building deeper relationships with your referral sources.

And examine the cost of doing nothing – Don’t fool yourself if you think doing nothing is  neither good nor bad but neutral.  There is indeed an opportunity cost of doing nothing, that is, the failure to reap the benefits of an effective intervention or the cost of inaction. Despite the fact that doing nothing can feel safe and comfortable, especially if you operate from a position of risk adversity or suffer from what some call organizational fatigue, for each new potential project in 2017, make a rule that the cost of doing nothing be quantified and considered. Once the cost of doing nothing  is established as a factor, therapists  often become more comfortable at approximating and considering it.

Every decision has a “cost” and each of these costs impacts either positively or negatively the processes and profitability of your practice.
When making decisions, you can control the quality of the decision, though not the ultimate outcome that occurs. But by understanding and examining the opportunity costs associated with important decisions, we can improve our odds of making good decisions.

Speaking of decisions, 2017 is looking like a year when we will all be challenged to learn  to make decisions together as a crucial element of getting along and getting things done with others. All the best to you, your families and your patients in the new year.  I am filled with gratitude for the opportunity to work and connect with so many of you.
