Elmore Leonard, a talented American novelist known for Westerns, said something in the 1980s that would later become a historic quote:

“I try to leave out the parts that most people skip.”

This is brilliant advice for patient care.

We don’t mean skip the meat and potatoes. What we mean is skipping what people will forget. "Research shows that 40-80% of medical information provided by healthcare practitioners is forgotten immediately. The greater the amount of information presented, the lower the proportion correctly recalled; furthermore, almost half of the information that is remembered is incorrect" (Kessels, 2003).

What we do in the clinic has a transient effect that lasts for hours on average or a day at best. We must change patients’ beliefs and behaviors, and make sure they realize it’s up to them to improve.

In this 1 hour webinar, participants will learn the importance of emphasizing the home program, or as I call it, The Recovery Plan.

As clinicians, we guide patients on their journey, not fix them.


Learning Objectives

In this webinar, participants will learn:

  1. The transient effects of manual therapy/passive techniques.
  2. The role of manual therapy, corrective exercise, needling, and and other techniques in patient care.
  3. How to motivate patients and help them understand their role in recovery.
  4. How to program a recovery plan like a well designed exercise program.


This webinar is for all healthcare professionals who are interested in improving patient outcomes and creating meaningful recovery plans with their patients.
